Because our eyes are the windows to the soul, it's important to choose the perfect hair colour that will emphasize their shade and complement their beauty.

Eyes can be shown off to their best advantage by simply being framed by the right hair color. Try it for yourself and see how these easy, but effective tips will work wonders and create an amazing look!

Brown Eyes: Brown hair and brown eyes are generally a winning combo. Use the shade of your eyes to dictate which brown to go. Those with lighter eyes, and fairer skin should generally stick to lighter shades. If you really want to make your eyes pop, opt for a Chestnut brown. If your eyes are dark and velvety, go for a Chocolate Brown or Dark brown to complement them. The best thing about brown eyes - they’ll match with this summers hottest style - Ombre. Darker eyes should opt for a Chestnut Ombre with it's richer, darker top that fades to a light brown, and light eyes should opt for Toffee Ombre which has a shimmery brown that fades into a dark blonde.

Blue Eyes: Those with blue eyes have a wide variety of choices when it comes to hair colour. Blondes, light browns and deep reds all tend to look good. To achieve the most natural look, take your skin tone into account too. If you have fair skin; Light Blonde, Caramel Blonde, Strawberry Blonde and Chestnut Brown will suit you best. Those of you with medium to darker skin tones; opt for richer deeper colours; such as Vibrant Auburn, Dark Brown and Off Black. If you want to go blonde, opt for the cooler shades and silver undertones of Platinum Blonde.

Green Eyes: For those of you with Green eyes need to be careful about which colour you go. Always take your skin tone into consideration, as it will greatly affect how natural you’ll look after you’ve dyed your hair. Those with dark, tan and olive skin tones should stick to Dark Brown, Vibrant Auburn, and Jet Black. If you have a pink tone to your skin opt for Chestnut Brown, Toffee Blonde and Strawberry Blonde; and if you have a yellow tone to your skin stick to Chocolate Brown, Chestnut Ombre and Off Black - and avoid blondes at all costs.
