One of the easy ways to make out your skin tone is to wash your face well and then stand in room that is well lit naturally. Now hold a red piece of paper and then a yellow piece of paper against your face, one after the other. Also hold white, green, blue and silver papers one at a time. If your skin looks best with red and yellow colored papers, then your skin tone is warm. On the other hand, if your skin looks best with white, green, silver and blue papers, your skin tone is cool.  Another easy way to know your skin tone is to check the inner side of your wrists. If the veins here are slightly greenish in color, you have a warm skin tone and if they are bluish in color, you have cool skin tone. Women who have warm skin tone can choose warm hair colors while those with cool skin tone can choose cool colors.

According to the skin color, there are different seasons into which women can be categorized. If you know to which season you belong, choosing the right hair color becomes easy.

The hair color is usually natural blond or brunette. Silver or platinum streaks will look good on them. If you prefer red hair, go for mauve as it has a bluish tint and will complement your complexion. Try not to use red mahogany, warm golden blondes and copper shades.

Winter type colors:

Most of the pale skinned women fall under this category. Here the skin is light with a cool undertone. The eye is green or dark brown. Blue or gray eyes may also be seen.
