Blonde – there’s no foxier colour for your locks this summer. But blonde isn’t one-size-fits-all, and while  Sienna Miller’s blonde makes us drool, the same colour on Beyonce would make you go “ugh!”.

In short, not all shades of blonde look great on everyone. So to help you decide on the perfect blonde for your summer look, we’ve broken down which colours will look best on your skin tone.

Going blonde with light skin

… with warm undertones

Pale skin with warm tones, like a slightly golden or reddish colouring, look great with very bright, cool blonde hair. Try platinum or icy hues for your hair – you can go really light! The contrast will cool the warmth of your skin giving you that angelic look.

… with cool undertones

If you’re very fair or pale, with hints of pink or blue in your skin, you’ve got cool undertones. Add some golden, strawberry or other warm hues to your blonde to give your face some warmth. Don’t attempt to go platinum, or experiment with the granny hair trend – you could end up looking ghostly and washed out!

Going blonde with medium skin

… with warm undertones

With skin that’s somewhere between light and dark, you’ve got room to play with your blonde! Ashy blonde will create too much contrast, but anything in the range from wheat to sand to honey will look beautiful and even beachy if you want!

… with cool undertones

A cool skin tone calls that perfect beach-bleached look for your hair. We don’t mean reach for bleach, though! Try a buttery colour, and add depth with highlights and lowlights.

Going blonde with dark skin

… with warm undertones

Avoid blonde hair that looks fake! Your ideal blonde has honey and amber shades in it, not platinum or anything too light. The right blonde will complement your gorgeous skin colour perfectly!

… with cool undertones

Too much contrast doesn’t look sexy! Instead, choose a blonde colour with a richer blonde colour and use cool tones, like caramel, rather than gold. You might want to consider a light brown rather than a blonde, but your stylist will help you make the best decision.
