Gorgeous pale, creamy skin is particularly beautiful when it has been taken care of with the help of moisturizers and sunscreens. Pairing it with the perfectly colored hair creates an even more sumptuous look.

Pale, or fair, skinned women have a variety of options when choosing the perfect color for their hair. Platinum blonde, for instance, adds a touch of glamour.

It can, however, be difficult to maintain this look without damaging the hair. Ash blond, with a few darker streaks to break up the look and make roots less noticeable, may be a more viable option.

Blonds containing golden tones should be avoided, as they tend to drain the skin, making it look washed out.

Purplish reds, such as garnet or burgundy, are another option. Coppery shades of red should be avoided if the skin has pink undertones.

Bronze and mahogany tones are also not recommended, as they fade fairly quickly and will create a brassy look. This equally applies to mahogany or bronze shades of brown, as these shades can make fair skin appear lifeless.

Rich, warm shades of brown, such as walnut, mocha or chocolate are ideal brown, or brunette, shades for ladies with fair skin.

These shades will warm up the face and give it a rosy, healthy glow. In conjunction with brown eyes, this may well be the best possible choice.

Alternatively, the fashionable 'Snow White look', made popular by celebrities such as Dita von Teese and Kelly Osbourne, for instance, can be achieved by opting for jet black hair.

With slightly blue undertones, jet black gives an appearance of extra shine and creates a beautiful contrast between the paleness of the skin and the darkness of the hair.

Ultimately, the choice of hair colour depends on each individual's personal preferences and what feels right.

Best is a mocha brown. I have pale skin as well and I have done just about every color. Blond will flush you out. Red make your face look a little pink. Dark brown and black will make you appear paler than you actually are.

Red shouldn't make your face appear pink if you have genuinely
pale skin, unless it already has a pinkish tinge...

Light cinnamon brown will enhance your features and make your eyes seem bolder. Blond will fade you out compared with your pale skin and dark brown or black will make you look paler then you already are. And don,t go with red because it won't match your eyes.

Red hair with brown eyes is are more unusual combination than red hair and blue eyes, but as someone who was born with that combination, it's never caused me any problems!

Theres too many blonde's in the world with blue eyes and blonde hair...if you dye your hair a dark chocolate brown your eyes will look a lot brighter and you wont look so washed out like most people do when they dye their hair blonde

Well I have Dark (natural) almost black hair, pale skin and Hazel/brown eyes and I find for colour clothes you should wear greens. But for hair colour I think you should either dye it black (yes, this may make you look paler but the fact is it makes you look more suited,elegant) I think you should just stick to what you think suits you best! And you'll look good, if you feel good :)

I'm also the same as you. I had all sorts of colours but you can go from light blonde to a rich chocolate colour but be careful same dark colour can make you look washed out. Stick to chocolate brown or go lighter.

I am exactly the same
I'm so  bored with my old hair colour. I'm naturally light blonde but its got darker now I have a sort of dirty blonde hair. My eyes are blue and I'm so pale. When it comes to the holidays I'm going to dye my hair chocolate brown with semi permanant dye and see whether it suits. I suggest the same for you.but I'm worried it will wash me out completely, I'm going to grow my hair and hopefully it will then be an improvement.
Hope this helped and good luck xx

I have the same problem as you, I'm a red head and my eyes still pop because I have large eyes so it depends on your facial shaping and feature shaping too

If your eyes are more green than blue any dark ready brown colours would make them pop. But if they are more blue I would go for a dark black brown which would make them stand out more xx

I have green eyes and pale skin and I dye my hair regularly a pretty prominent red colour. I'm sick of it now, but everyone reckons it really suits me.

I have the problem that blonde just blends in with my skin cause I'm that pale I'm to scared to go away from it cause my natural hair color is a very dark blonde almost brown also and thats looks so dull and ordinary I don't understand dark colors just make me paler.

Personally, I think you should leave your hair alone. It will be healthier in the long run. That being said, blue eyes and pale skin SCREAM OUT to be attached to a blonde.

I have the exact problem I hate having the same hair colour its just boring me now. So I'm going to dye mine a light brown with a semi perm dye in case I feel it doesn't suit me.

Probably mousey brown because it will match your eyes and won't make you look hugely pale.

I think you should dye it pink with red streaks and blonde highlights. That would look cool.
