Experimenting with hair color is part of life—everyone should know what it feels like to be a redhead, if only for a fleeting moment, right? But finding your ideal hair shade, whether it’s cinnamon or light ash blonde, may require a fair amount of trial and error. We’ve all got photos of shades we kind of regret. Well, count your lucky stars because we’re here to spare you some of the legwork—and heartache. To help you find the best hair color for you (aside from the one you were born with), we’ve rounded up colors in every shade and included which skin tones or eye colors they work best with.
8Light Ash Blonde
The palest of blondes has hints of ash or a whitish tint with pale green and blue undertones, and suits ladies with pale skin tones particularly well. If you’ve got rosy undertones to your skin, an ashy tone will be even better, as the green and blue undertones will neutralize the rosiness. To keep light ash blonde hair from yellowing, use a purple shampoo and conditioner.
