    The Best AF Colors For Your Undertone

    When choosing your next AF color, considering your skin’s undertone can help narrow down your choice and accentuate your natural features.


    So what is an undertone anyway? Your skin tone is the surface level color of your skin that can change due to the season or sun exposure. For example, your summer foundation color might be darker than your winter foundation. Your undertone on the other hand is the underlying tone of your skin that is ever-present and doesn’t change with the seasons. Keep reading to find out more about how to determine your undertone and which Arctic Fox hair colors are best suited for you.


    While knowing your undertone can help narrow down your choice of color, don’t let it stop you from fully expressing yourself. We’re all about breaking the rules at AF! Read through to the end and we’ll give you some tips on how to break the rules in a way that still accommodates your undertone.


    Undertone Categories


    There are three categories of undertones: cool, warm, and neutral. Cool undertones have a pink or bluish hue to their skin. Warm undertones have a yellow, golden, or peachy hue to their skin. Neutral undertones have undertones that are close to the color of their surface skin.


    How to Find Your Undertone


    Figuring out your undertone can be a bit confusing at first. Follow the tests below for an easy way to determine your undertone.


    Vein Method

    Take a look at your veins. A good place to look is around your wrist or the back of your hands.


    1. Do your veins appear purple or blue? You have cool undertones.
    2. Do your veins appear green or olive? You have warm undertones.
    3. Do you have a mix of blue and green, or can’t tell? You likely have neutral undertones.

    Jewelry Method

    If you have trouble seeing your veins or want confirmation of the vein method, the jewelry method is a great option! Most people are attracted to either silver or gold jewelry based on the way it looks against their skin. Grab a piece of silver and another of yellow gold. Try them on and take a look at which you feel best in.


    1. If you prefer the way silver jewelry looks on your skin, you have cool undertones.
    2. If you prefer the way yellow gold jewelry looks on your skin, you have warm undertones.
    3. If you look great in both or don’t have a preference, you likely have neutral undertones.

    White T-Shirt Method

    Throw on a white t-shirt and go outside in natural light. Pay attention to how your skin looks in comparison to the white t-shirt.


    1. If your skin looks rosy or pink, you have cool undertones.
    2. If your skin looks golden or yellow, you have warm undertones.
    3. If you don’t really see a change, you have neutral undertones.

    If you’re struggling to figure out which category you fall in, or you’re a mix of cool and warm undertones according to the tests, then you most likely have neutral undertones!

    How to Break the Rules


    Rules are meant to be broken, babe. So how do you break the rules while still considering your undertone?


    Frame your Face 

    Use the trendy money piece look or face framing layers in a color that does complement your undertone in combination with colors that don’t.

    Split Dyes

    Split dyes are a great way to incorporate multiple colors. Choose one side that compliments your undertone with the other half that doesn’t.

    Create A Melt

    Create a melt with a color that matches your undertone closest to your face melted into a color that doesn’t match. Another option is to melt AF into your natural color. For inspo on the best color melts, make sure you’re following us on TikTok and Instagram!

    Don’t Give A F!

    Seriously. Do whatever you want! Rules are meant to be broken, and if you feel great in a color that doesn’t complement your undertone, who cares?! Confidence is the best complement.
