Peachy, pale skin has a delicacy that's unmatched. Despite your fairness, you have a unique glow that deserves an awesome hair color. The best colors for you make your skin look bright and healthy and bring out the sparkle in your eyes. Try a contemporary, monochrome look with one shade or go for depth with highlights and lowlights that bring out the richness of your coloring.


Peach skin is a lovely combination of pale pink and orange. This means you're warm-toned (all women are either warm or cool). Take a look at the veins in your wrists by your palms. Warm-toned women have a greenish cast in their veins. No matter which hair colors you choose, the ones that look best on you have warm undertones. Your fairness might change with sun exposure, but your undertone is always the same.


Blond is a pretty color for peach-skinned women. The golden hues bring out the pale orange undertone in your face for a healthy, sweet look. Try warm honeys that blend a few different blonds for a lot of depth without overwhelming your pale skin. Playing with highlights and lowlights in warm wheat, toffee and gold bring light to your eyes and let your features shine alongside your hair.


Brown hair doesn't have to be boring. The best browns for peachy-faced girls are light and sandy with golden hints to bring out the pale orange in the skin. Rich brunettes, like chocolate or coffee-inspired shades, would probably overwhelm you. If the dark side is calling you, try a monochromatic medium brown with caramel highlights to soften the stronger base color.


Peach hair might seem out of this world -- and it is! But only to a certain extent. By dying streaks or ends in a pinkish-orange color, you bring out the beauty of your skin. The hue isn't so bold that people are shocked, but the pretty surprise of a creative color flatters your face and enhances your overall look. A full peach mane might be a little much, but touches here and there are stellar.
