What colors will suit my skin tone best??Posted 2 weeks ago
So I want to change up my hair, am going to use a color remover like joico color eraser or colorb4 or something to get my currently super faded blue/green out (fingers crossed it works!!) But after I hopefully get the color out, depending on how well that goes I may have to bleach it again, which I need to touch up my roots anyways so whatever.
My question is though, what colors suit me best? I'm a cool toned girl as far as i can tell. Blue eyes, dark hair, pale skin. My undertone is generally pink but in certain areas it can almost look purple. Especially if im not wearing makeup!!
The "what color are your veins?" Trick doesnt help me much bc the veins in my wrists are blue, slightly green AND purple. I have 3 colors lmao and I have no idea what that tells me
I REALLY want to go lavender. Or baby pink. Just pastel. I really really want pastel hair. But for clothing, jewel tones look best on me. Bright blue, red, green...you get the idea. Is hair the same? Or as long as I keep the undertone cool will it be okay even if its pastel??

I want a purple along the lines of these

I think something like manic panic's cotton candy pink ( probably diluted since you want pastel pastel ) or ion's brights rose would look really nice on you, maybe even arctic fox's virgin pink diluted (I haven't tried frose but you could try that too). You could use ion's lavender or manic panic's purple rain (but again diluted lol) for the purple. Be warned that Ion is hard to remove for some people. I think the pink would look better on you than the purple but that's subjective and you really never know until the colour is on your hair. I think that cooler pastels would be a safe option but you could go neutral or even to warmer tones just to experiment, I've dyed my hair colours (like the peach that I have on right now) that traditionally would look bad on my skintone but the colour looks great.

I think you have a good undertone for icy, bright pastels (rather than muted ones), you seem neutral-to-cool and you definitively look good with saturated, vibrant colors. If they feel too pale, it's easy to go deeper.
My veins are also blue, purple and green XD. I think you will learn how to create the perfect pastel shade for your complexion along the way, by adding more pink or more violet in your mix.
I'd pick a bright vibrant violet/purple (my all time favorite Is Pravana Violet) and a vibrant pink (my experience with pinks Is not wide enough to give advice) , to dilute in conditioner. I always feel like it's more convenient than purchasing pastels.
