But if you're still doubtful as to which particular brown hue will suit you best, here's a fool-proof cheat sheet to getting your best hair color ever—whether you're morena, chinita, or mestiza!

For Mestizas

For Chinitas

Chinita beauties can play up their distinctly Asian features with warm brown hair. Try a reddish-brown color or a golden-toned hue to match their skin's yellow undertone.

For Light Morenas

Your golden skin tone matches a lot of hair colors, contrary to popular belief! You can rock anything from a blackened brown to an amber brown hue to a shade that's almost blonde. Don't be afraid to experiment!

For Medium Morenas

Trust us when we say that you can go for a bold hue, like a deep red-brown or a blackened brown that brings out your natural tan beautifully. Also, a blonder brown is a great option when you want a sun-kissed look—go for a gold-toned dark blonde for that summer glow!

For Deep Morenas

Flaunt your year-round tan with an orange-brown or a chocolate brown shade that can highlight the warmth of your skin tone! Deep reddish brown shades will look great on you, too. A Just avoid yellowish hues that could wash you out and make you look sickly.
