You should have a general idea of which color you want before you go to buy your wig. You might be tempted to try something very different once you are in the store, but it’s best to stick with colors that you know will work for you. Skin tone types generally fall into three categories: warm, cool and neutral.

Determine what skin tone you have if you don’t know already. Warm skin tones tend to have brown, hazel, or green eyes. If you tan easily, then you most likely have warm skin tones.

By contrast, if you burn easily and have a ruddy color to your skin, then you are cool-toned. Neutral skin tones will often not have an obvious undertone to their skin (neither yellow or pink) and will, therefore, be compatible with most hair colors.
