Whether you have an olive, dark or fair skin tone, a good tan is an effortless way to add an all-over glow to your skin. We all know, however, that we should be careful of spending too much time laying out in the sun. That’s why we’re always on the hunt for alternative methods of getting a sunkissed look, like self-tanner, bronzer, clothing, nail polishes and even our hair color. While it doesn’t have the power to turn you into a bronzed goddess, we have found that your hair color can help breathe a little life and color back into your complexion. So if you’re looking for a safer way to get that tan vibe all year long, check out our top hair colors that’ll complement every skin tone. 


What Hair Colors Tan Pale to Medium Skin? 

Although hair color can’t give you an instant glow like the sun, it can help offset some paleness for those with fairer skin. Try a hair color with warmer tones to it, like the L’Oréal Paris Superior Preference in Medium Chestnut Brown. It’s deep, rich hue offers shiny and luminous results. Shades like chestnut brown, honey and even strawberry blonde can add subtle warmth to your look. Also, highlighting your hair or going for a soft ombré can help radiate some color. We don’t recommend going drastically dark with jet black or drastically light with an almost-white, ashy blonde. The key here is adding warmth.

What Hair Colors Tan Olive to Dark Skin?

It’s hard to wash out warmer skin tones, as you’ve already got some color to your skin. If you want to add more of a bronzed glow to your skin tone, though, you’ll want to accentuate that warmth with your hair color. Funny enough, the best way to do that is to add a little bit of contrast. Cooler-toned shades work to create a tan look when they’re put against your skin. We recommend the Garnier Nutrisse Caramel Chocolate. If you’re feeling brave, try adding two cool-toned shades to add instant dimension to your hair while complementing your skin tone.
