  • They ususally have samples of hair (fake) colored to match a color and you can put it to your face or arm and tell that way or take the box and hold it up to yourself and imigain it lighter or darker

  • As a rule, if your eyes are brown tham warm colors look more natural. If your eyes are blue, than ashy or cool colors look more natural. Hazel eyes are a bit more tricky. Look at the inside of your wrists - if the tone is more golden than use warm colors - if the tone is more pinkish, pale, or bluish use cool colors.
