If you want to show off your beautiful peepers you've got to play up your eye color. One of the best ways to show off your eye color is to accentuate it with your hair color. Use your tresses to your advantage, since the right color can make your eyes pop. To determine the best hair color for your green eyes, think about what type of green your eyes are and the color of your skin tone.

Bring Out the Blond

Light tones can be a perfect complement if your eyes are green with a hint of blue or green with a gray hue. For blond hair to work with your eyes, your skin tone should have a hint of pink or a cool undertone. If your coloring and eye color fall into this category, play up those peepers with light blond hair or light blond highlights. Women with a more neutral skin tone can experiment with a wider variety of blond to go with green eyes -- anything from light platinum tones, to red-enhanced strawberry or blond with a golden hue.

Be a Radical Redhead

Red hair is a stunning match for green eyes in a variety of shades. For lighter eyes, experiment with a strawberry hue. If you have medium to darker green eyes you can handle deep red colors in your hair. If you've got cool undertones in your skin, stick to reds with a hint of purple tones. If you're working with a warmer tone, try reds with a golden hue to make your green eyes stand out. Neutral skin can pull off a variety of reds.

Become a Bold Brunette

Boost the green hue in your eyes by accentuating your eyes as a brunette. If you've got green eyes and skin with cool tones, use a deep, dark hair color to make your eyes get all of the attention. A warmer, golden brunette is a great match for a green-eyed woman with a warm skin tone. If you've got a neutral palette then you can experiment with warm, neutral or cool shades of brown.

Brighten Up Green Eyes With Black Hair

Intense hair colors, like black, can really make green eyes pop due to the contrast. A true black often has cool tones, so a cool undertone in your skin will work best with true black. If you've got a warmer tone, try intense dark colors close to black but with reds or brown mixed in to play up both your green eyes and warmer tone.
