Not every hair color looks fierce on every lady. The wrong hair color for your skin tone can wash you out, make you look sallow and even add years on. Ladies with yellow undertones to their skin should avoid golden tones and vibrant reds. But there are a whole host of colors that look positively fab when paired with this color skin.


This color is great for those with dark or hazel eyes. Because of the yellow undertones in your skin, you'll never end up looking like a goth queen. It's also a color that looks fierce on short as well as long locks. Although with longer locks, you may want to add subtle aubergine highlights to break up the color. Loads of shaggy layers are also a great way to give shape and depth to black hair. Black hair also looks good with loads of colors, leaving your wardrobe options wide open.

Medium Brown

Hazel, blue or green eyes will look positively pretty with medium brown hair. This rich color makes skin with yellow undertones look fresh and healthy and highlights light-colored eyes. Feel free to rock this versatile shade with any length and style. Resist the urge to add golden highlights; it will only make you look sallow. Instead, neutralize your skin tone and add depth to a medium brown hair color by adding cinnamon highlights. Try wearing colors like coffee, cream and forrest green.


Accentuate your coloring with a deep auburn shade. This is a color that also looks great with green or blue eyes and short- to medium-length locks. Make sure that the auburn shade you choose shies away from being too red and sways more toward the brown family or the wine-colored family. If your shade is too red, it will clash with the yellow undertones in your skin. This combination of hair, skin tone and eye color is also tricky when it comes to clothing. Stick to wearing dark greens, black or ivory.

Sandy Blonde

For those ladies who live by the mantra that, "Blondes have more fun," stick to a sandy blonde. This is also a great choice for natural blondes with yellow undertones or gals with green, blue or hazel eyes. Like those ladies who decide to go medium brown, sandy blondes should skip the golden highlights. Opt for ashy highlights or warm brown lowlights. This hair and eye color combo looks fab with pinks, yellow green and neutrals like cream and mocha.
