What hair color looks best on mixed people?

On mixed people. By mixed, I mean like black & white or black & Hispanic, because I'm black and Hispanic hardy harr harr

I have dark brown hair with ends that are basically fading and while I like black hair, it's blah to me now. I'm over it.

these are just examples:

  • I have a lighter complexion and dyed my hair a deep violet color - just enough color so it's purple even in low lighting, but not so much that it looks like I soaked my head in a bucket of grapes in high lighting.

    Came out really nice - I'm not mixed mixed, black and some Italian, but I got the light complexion.

    I would experiment with colors that aren't sister's of yellow - like light brown, ash reds, rust reds etc, as they'll just blend in with your skin and look awkward ( one mixed girl died her hair an auburnish red and it looked...odd...)

    Definitely keep the hair on the darker side, blond on mixed complexes...eh...be wary of that.

    I would suggest a dark burgundy, as you would be able to change the color, without it looking strange against your skin tone. Maybe even a bit of a mahogany / reddish color.

    Rhianna has a lighter complexion, and honestly, the deep red hair doesn't look to bad.

    You can always bode for some highlights as well if you don't feel like going way out on the dye, just to change your look a bit. Or hell, even get a new hair - style or hair cut?

  • I love the look of lighter brown because it looks more natural. Depending on how light your skin is, you may be able to pull off some shades of red.

    Brown would be a good base color for your hair, and adding in some slightly lighter highlights might look pretty good.

    that is, if you want it to look natural.

    • Yeah, people actually ask me if my dark hair is natural looking and I'm like "yeah"--because it is. I guess people think my hair should be lighter, so I'll look into lighter browns

    • For sure! Happy hair-dyeing!

  • I Like light brown/caramel hair

  • Personally I like to stick with black and blue-black I like the contrast with my skin, but as long as you stick with the darker browns it will look fine. I wouldn't go too light though it all depends on your skin tone, if you are looking for a natural look that is. You could if you want go with dark brown hair with some lighter brown highlights.
