Flattering hair colors for green eyes

Gorgeous green eyes give you stunning options for a flattering hair color. You can be the sultry brunette, the bold woman with flame-red tresses, or a cool blonde. Think of your skin tone as well as your eye color to help you decide which color will work best. With modern hair color formulas, you can pick a perfect shade and get salon-quality color results right at home.

Flattering hair colors for green eyes


The obvious choice to complement green eyes is a rich red or auburn brown. The warm color will accent your eyes and add some spark to your appearance. One excellent choice is L'Oreal Sublime Mousse hair color, in gorgeous and warm Spicy Auburn Brown. This rich color has just enough depth to be dramatic, and the warmer red tones are true to its name. It's a sassy color choice that can bridge the gap between elegant and fun. The auburn tones add shine and bring a flattering glow to your complexion, while the brown tones are vibrant with enough variation for a completely natural look. This color is a definite winner for green-eyed ladies.


Blonde is always fun, and women with green eyes can go ash blonde to sunny. Avoid brassy shades, though. A strawberry blonde shade is an easy win for ladies with green eyes. More vibrant reds are also flattering to you, and darker reds will lighten your eye color and still be complementary.
