Take This Hair-Color Quiz to Find Your Next Look
"What color should I dye my hair?" is a question that has crossed our minds more times than we'd like to admit. Dyeing your hair is one of the easiest ways to transform your look, but when met with the plethora of options to choose from, landing on the best color for you can be tricky.
If you prefer a subtle change, tweaking your natural color through techniques like lowlights or balayage may be your safest bet. On the other hand, if you love a good trend, red hair has been all the rage over the last few months, and there's a shade for just about everyone. If bolder options are more your speed, the "Gemini" hair-color trend may be just what you're looking for.
Do the options somehow simultaneously feel like too many and too few at the same time? Don't worry; we understand, but that doesn't mean you should abandon your quest to find what hair color looks best on you. Ahead, we made the experience a little easier with a quick hair-color quiz. By answering a few short prompts, questions like "What hair color looks best on me?" will be a thing of the past.

If You Got Mostly A's: Opt For Warm-Toned Colors
If you fall into this category, you likely have warm undertones, so corresponding hair colors like honey blond, chocolate brown, or auburn red would look incredible on you. You also likely prefer a slightly more low-maintenance approach when it comes to your color upkeep. Since most human hair has an element of gold to it, you can't go wrong with a hair color that incorporates or complements the hue. "Typically, shades that have a little more gold to them are good choices and add softness to peoples' complexions," Shvonne Perkins, lead educator at Madison Reed, tells POPSUGAR. "They also tend to fade more naturally."
If You Got Mostly B's: Cool-Toned Hair Colors Are For You
Did you get mostly B's? Then answer to the question "What hair color is best for me?" is shades like ash or platinum blond; jet black; and true, blue-based reds. These colors tend to require a bit of upkeep, so if you fall into this category, once you find your look, you're likely going to stick to it for quite some time — if not for the health of your hair, then simply because it took you forever to find just the right nuanced shade that works for you. (Honestly, we don't blame you.)
If You Got Mostly C's: Have Fun With Your Hair Color
If C's dominated your answer chart, you have neutral undertones, which is great news because it means you also like to experiment. Just about any hair color will look good on you; whether you pick warm or cool-toned shades is up to you. Have fun with your look, because pretty much every shade is your shade.
