Best Color Contacts For Your Hair Color

by admin on February 16, 2011

You can change your hair color a million different shades, but what if your eye color no longer compliments your fresh new shade of locks? Which color of contacts goes best with each hair color? This is a question we get a lot, so we’ve put together a guide to help you get started picking your new shade of eyes.

Brunettes – Brown haired individuals can have a variety of natural eye colors, but most commonly found colors are brown, blue, or hazel eyes. Not a natural brunette? Try a blue colored contact. Blue tends to go very well with brown hair. The contrast of the darker hair with light eyes will really make your eye pop and seem very bright. If the brown has a hint of red to it, try out a hazel color too.

Blondes – Blondes are known for their baby blue eyes but also can have brown and green. Those with blue or brown eyes may want to go for a green to go with their blonde hair. So if you’re not a natural blonde you probably would want to go with a blue or green color contacts. Blondes can have more fun and really play up the eyes with bright green and even purple colors too; it just depends if you want a more natural look or if you want to be obvious. The possibilities are endless.

Black – People with black hair should choose a lighter contact lens color. Bright blue eyes go great with black hair. Also, try gray, which may look rather different but it will definitely stand out and get attention.

Red – Those with red hair may already have blue or green eyes (Although only 1% of people with red hair also have blue eyes, which is very rare! Thanks for the tip “M”!) but you should actually try color enhancing blue or green contacts, in other shades and hues, and even switch between the two colors. However, I believe most people would be in agreement when saying that red hair and green eyes make for a great combination.

Whatever hair shade you choose, be creative with your contact lens colors. There are so many different colors and brands out there. AC Lens stocks a wide selection of colored contact lenses, so once you get your prescription from your doctor, visit AC Lens to order any color you can dream of.

I think there’s an error in the one about Redheads. Only 1% redheads in the world have blue eyes.
“But like red hair, blue eye colour is a recessive trait, meaning that both parents must carry the gene for a child to be blessed with it. This makes those with red hair and blue eyes the rarest minority in the world, with only 1% having both.” —Huffington Post

Just telling you :)

Anyways, I agree. Hazel eyes go great with brown hair =D
