The combination of blond hair, dark roots and washed-out skin is an unflattering look for any gal. Because a woman’s complexions is at her fairest during the winter, going a shade darker may make all the difference in brightening up her skin’s tone.
If you’re looking for a subtle change this winter, ask your stylist to add lowlights, which will help to blend your hair’s dark roots with the rest of the color (the opposite of highlights, these streaks are darker than your current hair color).
For a more dramatic look, blondes with warm skin tones (having red undertones and skin that freckles easily) can ask their colorist for an all-over color or glaze that compliments her skin tone, such as dark auburn. Women with cooler skin tones (having blue undertones) will look best in a medium-to-dark chestnut brown.
