What colorista colour is right for you?

If you want to add colour or even multiple colours, to your hair but you’re not sure where to start, this guide can help you pick the right hair colour for you and your skin tone.

Changing up your hair colour can totally change your look. Add a little grey to your ends and you’ll get a high-fashion runway look. Go for bright-emerald highlights and you’ll get that on-trend punk-rock look. Or put three pastel hair colours through your hair and get a mermaid or unicorn hair. The hair colour ideas are endless, and there’s so much room to play and experiment. But it can be hard to figure out what colourful hair options might work for you, based both on your natural hair colour and skin tone. If you’re not sure what you want to try, this guide, sorted by skin tone, can help you find your new favourite hair colours from the Colorista range. And remember: The beauty of using a semi-permanent hair colouring is that it’s low-commitment, so you can always switch it up.

The best hair colour for fair skin

Depending on your undertones, you have lots of hair colour options if your skin is fair. If you’ve got warm, pink undertones, opt for a cooler hair colour that will neutralize a bit of the redness, like pastel blues or purple hair colours, and avoid anything with too much yellow in it. If you have cooler undertones, go with something warmer, like strawberry blonde or copper hair colours.

If you have light blonde hair:

 Try L’Oréal Paris Colorista 1-Day Spray in Pastel Blue or Lavender if you have warm undertones or Gold or Rose Gold if you have cool undertones.

If you have dark blonde hair:

L’Oréal Paris Colorista Semi-Permanent Hair Colour in #Blue or #Purple is great for warm undertones and #HotPink coloured hair would look great with cool undertones.

If you have medium brown hair:

If you have warm undertones, try L’Oréal Paris Colorista Semi-Permanent Hair Colour for Brunette Hair in #Teal or #MidnightBlue, and if you have cool undertones, #Maroon or #Burgundy is a great fit.

The best hair colour for medium-toned skin

Medium skin tones make for a more versatile palette for coloured hair, which means you can take a few risks. Try punchy highlights in a bright colour or take your whole head more ashy with a grey-blonde shade. If you have warm undertones, be careful of certain colours that have too much red or yellow in them. 

If you have light blonde hair:

Try L’Oréal Paris Colorista 1-Day Spray in Silver, L’Oréal Paris Colorista Semi-Permanent Color for Light Blonde or Bleached Hair in #Blue.

If you have dark blonde hair:

Try using L’Oréal Paris Colorista 1-Day Spray in Pastel Pink or Hot Pink on just the ends of your hair, or combine one of those pink hair colours with Lavender and Mint.

If you have medium brown hair:

Take a risk and put L’Oréal Paris Colorista Semi-Permanent Hair Colour for Brunette Hair in #Green in streaks through your hair. If you have cooler undertones, do the same with #Red.

The best hair colour for dark skin

There are lots of fun hair colours you can play with when your skin is dark, too. If you want to create a bit of contrast, try going blonde or apply a cooler blonde through the ends of your hair. Or, add a subtle hit of jewel-toned hair colour for a bit of dimension.

If you have light blonde hair:

Try the L’Oréal Paris Colorista 1-Day Spray in Blue or Purple all over, or the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Semi-Permanent Hair Colour for Light Blonde or Bleached Hair in #Indigo. All of these cool colours will compliment your warm undertones.

If you have dark blonde hair:

Try a metallic hair colour shade, like the L’Oréal Paris Colorista 1-Day Spray in Gold or Rose Gold, if you have cool undertones or Silver if you have warm undertones. If you want something brighter, try L’Oréal Paris Colorista Semi-Permanent Hair Colour for Light Blonde or Bleached Hair in #Turquoise.

If you have medium brown hair:

Create highlights in a punchy colour, like L’Oréal Paris Colorista Semi-Permanent Hair Colour for Brunette Hair in #Maroon or #Red.
