I have really dark brown hair and its straight long and boring! I want to add some layers to it with some mahogany and caramel highlights, but I have olive skin tone. Will this look alright? I want to keep it so all i need to do in the morning is straighten it.

Mahogany and caramel
by: FLO BRIGGS

Yes , I think that that your idea is great . You have yellow skin tones. It is recommended that your hair stays dark, but it does not have to be brown. The mahogany color will be good or a dark red brown could also work well and then add the caramel or golden highlights.

I have an olive "green"ish skin tone and hazel green eyes, which turn green often. I have permed hair, it's falling out, well, sort of. I have natural dark brown hair, and right now it's a medium brown with blonde highlights and some auburn highlights as well.

I love doing new things to my hair, and I'm looking for a new hair color and style for my senior pictures. Any advice??

Red hair is the best. I have an olive complexion with green eyes and I get so many compliments with my hair. I have naturally brown hair with auburn and blonde highlights. I use the deep intense red NOT the carrot-color red.

If you want a sort of "Summery" look
by: Anonymous

I would try a dark brass or copperish tone thats in the dark brown categories, it will look nice, and be brighter than usual.
blonde isnt a good idea for you because even though it looks good on many, it doesn't suit people all the time.

NO REDS!

I reckon pretty much any colour except for red, blue, green and all them retro colours, it suits some people but only if they got really sexy features they can pull it off.

Depending how light you are, you can go really light, even blonde if you want, if you're a darker skin tone, again, you can go with any colour maybe not blonde BLONDE. And don't believe wen people tell you to stay dark, yes its true it brings out your eyes and such but do what YOU want to do, experiment aye! I'm Asian and dark skinned and i coloured my hair heaps of red tones cus i LOVED red when i was younger but i didn't realize that made me look really dark and boring, it didn't bring out any of my nice features, it just made me look like a boring Asian. I switched to black just 2 years ago and i've loved it ever since, but i'm like nc42 in mac so you see im not the lightest, it just brought out my features and i got soo many compliments like seriously, it looks hot lol.

I just recently got foils of chestnut caramel brown and their really nice except their a bit on the orange side and i have an orange undertone so it doesn't bring out the best in me but ya know, whats living if you're always wondering what you could or coulda done =P just try it out see what comes of it, you'll probably love it. and who cares if you damage ur hair there's heaps of products to repair and its all about time.

Warm olive skin tone - Hair color choices

by Faith crow
(Yelm, Washington)

I have warm olive skin tone. I have a yellowish /green tone to my skin. I tan very well, but without a tan, I look kinda sallow in the face. I have noticed bright colors perk my face up. Can you tell me what hair colors hair color I would look BEST with?

Olive Skin Tone


by: N.F.
In general olive skin tones should stay with dark hair colors. If you have a yellow/green undertone then you should choose deep, dark and rich colors as base (brown and dark brown) and/or add highlight with colors such as burgundy, auburn or red copper tones to even-out the sallowness you see in your skin.

For those that have a more blue (cool) undertone, they have to avoid red copper tones and choose reds with more blue/violet shades like plum or blueberry.

No worries

Try an all over dark golden blonde shade and add dimension with some ultra platinum high-lights.

some blonde shades would suit
by: Anonymous

Because you have light eye color and lighter olive complexion, blonde can suits you (I think, warmer blondes would look best. Not cool blondes} And i think you should bleached your eyebrows to lighter color to match the warmer blonde.

Yes we can! lol

Olive skinned gals CAN go blonde but it's best to stay clear of 'ash' or 'sandy' type colors. Stick with 'strawberry blonde' -- apricot -- lighten it gradually with Semi-Permanent colors & french shampoos... Keep it dimensional with slightly different highlights& lowlights ...

Most importantly stay clear of the blow dryer & ammonia. Do a heavy oil treatment whenever you can.
Your hair will be spectacular. Promise! xxx

A shade for olive skin
by: FLO BRIGGS

Olive skin is not the best skin color for blonde. I suggest that you just have highlights, except for around the face. The highlights should be in white blonde shades and you must avoid gold or brassy colors. By looking at your picture your hair looks like it has been colored dark ? If that is the case , you may consider having a color consultation before doing any thing. Your hair could be damaged if not handled correctly by a professional.
