Usually, the first thing I notice about most people is their eyes. Eyes are storytellers, they tell a lot of things about the individual, his emotions, his personality, his temperament, etc. They really are the windows to the soul. Most of the time, they are the most attractive and defining physical feature. Personally, I love brown eyes. They come in such beautiful different shades my mind cannot catch up. My friends with brown eyes do not think it a big deal as every Peggy, Marie and Linda seem to have brown eyes.
Brown eyes are a big deal. A huge deal in fact. However, the wrong hair color can take the focus off the eyes and cast a tainted perspective, making it seem like a not huge deal. But the right hair color with beautiful brown eyes is pure magic. With the right hair color, you can pop those hints of gold and orange or make your eyes a brown ocean so deep that anyone can get lost in them. And just like our favorite celebrity Beyoncé , you could make your eyes sparkle, literally with the right hair color.
There are some important factors that should inform your decision on the right hair color. One of the most important is your skin’s undertones, which can range from warm peaches to cool blues and an entire world more. Brown eyes could have such diverse shades that the average Joe might have a hard time picking out a color for the first time. Fortunately, there are important steps to take before taking the deep plunge. Lol. And those steps are carefully listed below :- )
The Eye Color
First, about your eye color, is it a light brown or a deep dark brown? Or hazel with slight undertones of red or green? If you can answer these questions accurately and exactly, you’re well on your way to picking an absolutely perfect hair color that would enhance the beauty in your eyes and greatly improve your overall appearance.
For light brown eyes, you literally can dye your hair almost any color in the universe and still look amazing. However, the question of the skin tone still remains, but a light blonde or a medium brown will work some magic in your outlook. To add a little extra sum’in, you could use some highlights or some lowlights. Like Rihanna, whose hair is so totally beautiful everytime. Everyone loves the way Rihanna does her hair. Her hair has a slight touch of light and dark brown in it. And with her skin tone, nothing else looks better.
If your eyes are hazel, they could have hints of brown and gold ( warm colors) or blue and grey (cool colors). Dark hair colors like deep brown and black really cause hazel eyes to pop.
For dark brown eyes, you could consider dark brown dimensions and brunette or caramel highlights as they show clearly the light hints of color in brown eyes. However, if your skin tone is warm, you could try warm colors like yellow, red or golden hues. On the other hand, if you have a cool skin tone with your lovely brown eyes, you should consider seriously more intense shades like jet black or silver grey or white blonde. It will be a hit, trust me.
So you know you need to know exactly your skin tone, as per your skin’s cool, warm or neutral undertones. Once you do that, you could pick a particular hair color that suits both your skin tone and your eyes. It’s not so difficult to know your undertone. A particularly common and easy method is to do the vein check.
If the veins on your wrist look green then you definitely have a warm undertone. If the look blue then it’s a cool undertone. If sometimes, they look green and other times blue and other times green, then you have a neutral undertone. And guess what? This means that most hair colors would look super good with your eyes.
If however, your skin looks pinkish somehow, you should not do colors like blonde or red. You should rather wear colors that would neutralize the pigmentation of the skin. Like ash. It would show off your eyes more and tone down the shades of pink. And your pale skin would work well with almost any shade.
Then generally, if your eyes have warm tones,most of your preferred colors should be warm too. For instance, if your eyes are golden brown, warm tones like honey brown and gold would make you look absolutely adorable. This doesn’t mean however that if you have light colored eyes, you should go for light hair colors. No. Sometimes, contrasting tones could emphasize your features in a very beautiful way.
Similarly, warm skin tones do very well with warm hair colors too. If you stay within the range of colors of your tonality, you would easily pick amazing colors that would suit you best.
Amazingly, to pick a good hair color, your natural hair is also important enough to be factored into the equation. For instance, if your hair is light, finding a suitable hair color should be a breeze. Your brown eyes will pop when you contrast light and dark shades.
