Which colored contact lenses are best for blonde hair?
Blonde hair actually suits a large variety of eye colors, helping eye shades to look even more vibrant.
Famously,the best hair color for blue eyes is usually blonde. Both light and dark blue contact lenses will appearmore striking against a backdrop of blonde hair. Blue eyes are always a popular feature, while the combination is one that evokes plenty of envy. Bright green contact lenses are another color that suits blonde hair, offering a lighter look that is especially effective with pale or beige toned skin. This look works better with a fresh green color, rather than with a deeper shade. An alternative choice could be violet contact lenses, as this unusual color results in a pretty and slightly mystical look that is sure to make a statement and turn heads.
Which colored contact lenses are best for red hair?
Arguably,the best hair color for green eyes and green contact lenses has to be redhair. The contrast between the two shades is electric and will really help your eyes stand out. Any shade of green goes with red hair, while darker tones are more suited to lighter red hair, and bright green is at its best with deep shades of red. Alternatively, blue is also a good choice if green isn't really your thing, and still offers a striking contrast.
Which colored contact lenses are best for brown hair?
While a lot of the tips we’ve given have included contrasting colors, the best hair color for brown eyes has to be brown hair. The shades of brown work together to offer a natural and effective look. Unsurprisingly, this natural look is also created when using brown contact lenses. The best hair color for hazel eyes is undoubtedly any dark shades of brunette or black as it will emphasise the warm hues. There is also the option of going very bright and creating the more unusual combination of brown hair and blue eyes. This electric look is definitely one that will get you noticed in a very good way.
Which colored contact lenses are best for dark hair?
Just like blonde, black hair is the perfect backdrop to almost any eye color, with the shade helping to make a feature of your eyes no matter the color. A wonderful combination is violet eyes with black hair, as they stand out in such a unique way. Whether you opt for a light or dark shade, the color creates a statement that’s perfect if you enjoy turning heads while still being understated. Blue and green can create a similar effect and are popular choices for black hair, while very dark contact lenses will create a cohesive look that is incredibly mysterious.
Whichever color you choose, make sure you get your eyes tested and obtain a prescription from your optician if you need one. This way you’ll know whether colored contacts are suitable for your eyes, and you’ll know your exact visual requirements if you opt for prescription contact lenses, before you buy them from us.
