So you finally decided to cut your hair short. Whether it’s your shortest style yet, or you’ve finally given in and tried the ever popular and timeless chin-length bob, sometimes your ‘do will look even better with a cool dye job.
That said, there are hair colors that suit certain styles more than the other. Another factor is your skin tone. One common myth is that the deeper your complexion, the less options you have in choosing dyes that’ll flatter your tan. But that’s actually not true! There’s a wide variety of hair colors and styles you can choose from that will look gorgeous on morenas.
What hair colors should I consider if I’m morena?
The idea is to create a beautiful contrast against your skin with your tresses. That said, morenas usually have a warm or olive undertone, so picking colors that are rusty actually come across quit muddy if they’re not the right shade. Blondes, deep reds, rich chocolate browns, and yellow-toned dye jobs work well because they’ll make your tan pop. Basically, don’t pick dyes that match your skin color to avoid looking washed out.
To jump start your Pinterest board of pegs, we’ve rounded up a list of flattering cut and color ideas that’ll boost your bronze skin and give you that much needed glow up.
