We recommend contrasting your hat with your hair color. Selecting a hat color on the opposite side of the color wheel helps highlight the attractive natural colors of your hair. It’s a good idea to mix up colors so you don’t end up with outfits that are overly monochromatic. Monochromatic coloring puts you at risk of washing out or intensely darkening your look.

We hope this gives you a starting point to start shopping around and experimenting with different tones to figure out what works best for you!
