The Best Wigs for Cool Skin Tones

Posted on November 09 2018

There are so many amazing color choices for wigs out there, but how do you know which ones will look the best on you? Have you seen a great color on someone, just to compare it to yourself to find that it falls flat?

There is a secret way to find out which colors will look the best on you. It’s all down to your skin tone.

What Skin Tone Do You Have?

The first thing you need to figure out is what kind of skin tone you have, warm or cool. Sound confusing? It’s not too hard to determine when you take this little quiz:

Do you prefer silver jewelry or gold? Preferences for silver jewelry typically means that you have a cool skin tone. Is your natural skin tone pale, pink or medium?  If any of these are true, you have a cool skin tone.

If you think you may actually have a warm skin tone, read our blog Wigs For Warm Skin Tones! Once you’ve figured out what type of skin tone you have, you can pick the best wigs for you.

So Which Wigs Are For Me?

There are so many different options for women with cool skin tones! Here are our favorites:

With a classic bob style, you can take on anything! The Hailey Wig by Noriko in Java Frost is a great option for cool skin tones. Women with cool skin tones will look great in ash browns and this color and style will give you a lot of options.

Women with cool skin tones don’t have to limit themselves to browns though! You get the best of both worlds by being able to pull off some of the more extreme colors and styles. Fabulous by Revlon in Crème de Coco does exactly that. With amazing blond hair with brown roots, you’ll be stealing the show.  

Don’t limit yourself to short hair – cool skin tones can pull off both long and short wigs. For example, when looking for wigs for women check out Indie Waves by Forever Young in French Vanilla Blonde. These subtle waves will frame your face and keep you looking great. These fibers are also heat resistant so you can use any of your favorite curling or straightening tools.  

Looking for sleek and chic? Try out Straight Edgy by Forever Young. This look comes in a variety of colors that are great for cool skin tones. You’ll want to choose between BlackOff Black, and French Vanilla Blonde. With cool skin tones, you'll always look great in ash colors, but you are safe with some neutrals and even warm hues, given the right shade!

Check out the Lilac Frost by Hairdo if you’re looking for something a little out of the ordinary. The frosted look with dark roots not only makes a great look but adds a facet to make it seem like your own hair. 

Need more hair color ideas?

With so much to wear, there’s plenty to choose from but you should avoid wig colors with heavy red or bronze tones and highlights. Warm colors can compliment your cool skin tone, but depending on the depth of color in your skin's pigment, colors that are too brassy can be overpowering. So take a look at the different shades of browns, black and even the fun purple or the new silvery pale blondes and grays, and see which colors brighten your skin and make you look great!

    Is there a code for each wig color to know if it a warm or cool color? How can the purchaser find out if the wig color is warm or cool?
