First of all, any black woman can rock any color because the key is confidence. But if you’re unsure about which hair colors to try out then this is the article for you. There are a lot of different hair colors out there but luckily we’re here to help you decide which is the best for you. Below, we’ve listed all the non-natural hair colors that look stunning on Black women.
Before we begin, it’s crucial to take a look in the mirror or into your makeup drawer. Take a look at your foundation and figure out if your skin has a cool undertone or a warm undertone. This will help you ‘match’ your hair to your complexion which, in the end, is more pleasing to the eye.
There are three types of undertones; warm, cool, and neutral. If the base of your skin is yellow or golden, you have warm undertones. If you have hints of red, blue, or pink then your undertone is cool. You may have neutral undertones if there’s a mixture of warm and cool. Warm skin, warm hair. Cool skin, cool hair. Neutral skin, any undertone. (lucky!)
If you’re having trouble figuring this out (or don’t wear makeup), go to a nearby makeup counter. They will be happy to help guide you in the right direction.
