Best Hair Color for Skin Tone Celebrity Examples

Skin Tone Like: Jessica Alba

Pictured Left: This mess of hair color(s) is completely the wrong tone for Jessica’s complexion.  Though she looks better as a brunette, she has had success with a different shade of blonde.  

Last Word: Missed the mark.

Pictured Right: Jessica often has subtle highlights in her and has gone darker and lighter over the years, but she always looks best as a brunette.  Our favorite shade is pictured above.

Ashley Greene

Skin Tone Like: Ashley Greene

Pictured Left: Though we don’t love this hair color with Ashley’s skin tone, she is still a knock-out. Last Word: Missed the mark.

Pictured Right: It is obvious which hair color suits her better when you see them side-by-side.


Ciara-Best Hair Color for Skin Tone l www.sophisticatedallure.com

Skin Tone Like: Ciara

Pictured Left: The dye job on the left may have been all the rage at the time, but it doesn’t take away the fact that the color is all wrong for her complexion.  The star looks like an average teen on her way to the mall. Last Word: Fail

Pictured Right: The darker color on the right looks as glamorous and sophisticated as Ciara is.


Kristen Stewart-Best Hair Color for Skin Tone l www.sophisticatedallure.com

Skin Tone Like: Kristen Stewart

Pictured Left: Those with paler skin need to be careful to keep colors soft.  We applaud the fact that Kristen tries out new edgy looks, but the red shade on the left is too harsh for her complexion.  Last Word: Fail

Pictured Right: She looks like she has color back in her cheeks with the softer brunette shade on the right.

Jessica Simpson-Best Hair Color for Skin Tone l www.sophisticatedallure.com
Skin Tone Like: Jessica Simpson

Pictured Left: This hair color that Jessica chose early in her career is just wrong in so many ways.  It doesn’t help that she looks like she’s possessed in the photo.  Last Word: Disaster

Pictured Right: Jessica has tried several shades of blonde over the years.  The one on the right is our favorite.


Jennifer Love Hewitt-Best Hair Color for Skin Tone l www.sophisticatedallure.com

Skin Tone Like: Jennifer Love Hewitt

Pictured Left: With the two photos side-by-side for comparison, it is obvious that Jennifer looks much better with darker hair.

Pictured Right: Stunning.


Lindsay Lohan-Best Hair Color for Skin Tone l www.sophisticatedallure.com

Skin Tone Like: Lindsay Lohan

Pictured Left: This platinum blonde look washes out her features almost completely.  Lindsay has tried many dramatically different hair color shades over the years, but we voted for this one as the least complementary to her skin tone. Last Word: Epic Fail.

Pictured Right: Some of Lindsay’s hair color choices have been a success but this color from early on in her career is gorgeous on her.

Coco Rocha-Best Hair Color for Skin Tone l www.sophisticatedallure.com

Skin Tone Like: Coco Rocha

Pictured Left:  If your skin tone is like Coco Rocha’s, make a mental note (better yet get out your Sharpie) NEVER to choose this hair color.  It’s not the red that bothers us, she actually looks attractive as a redhead.  It’s the tone against her complexion that has us cringing.

Last Word: There are simply no words for this catastrophe.

Pictured Right: As a model, Coco has had many, many hair colors over the years…many of them fair to attractive but without a doubt she looks the most attractive with the color above.


Elisabeth Moss-Best Hair Color for Skin Tone l www.sophisticatedallure.com

Skin Tone Like: Elisabeth Moss

Pictured Left:  Elisabeth Moss has a very light skin tone and requires soften hair color tones to complement her complexion.  Her hair color is much too dark and one dimensional on the left. (The harsh makeup is not helping matters)

Pictured Right: This color brings out the color in Elisabeth’s complexion.


Jessica Biel-Best Hair Color for Skin Tone l www.sophisticatedallure.com

Skin Tone Like: Jessica Biel

Pictured Left:  Jessica Biel looks pretty with this hair color (when doesn’t she?) but bringing it down a few shades looks much better.

Pictured Right: This is one of our favorite hair color choices that Jessica has chosen over the years.

Keira Knightley-Best Hair Color for Skin Tone l www.sophisticatedallure.com

Skin Tone Like: Keira Knightley

Pictured Left:  We like the fact that Keira Knightley tried out a new hair color but she obviously knows best.  The picture on the right is far better for her skin tone.

Pictured Right: Gorgeous!


Rachel McAdams-Best Hair Color for Skin Tone l www.sophisticatedallure.com

Skin Tone Like: Rachel McAdams

Pictured Left:  This darker hair color actually isn’t all the bad but when compared to the photo on the right, blonde wins.

Pictured Right: Rachel McAdams looks great in many hair colors, in fact she is often viewed as a redhead, but this particular color is our favorite.
