To all the colour rookies out there, the difference between warm and cool tones is simple: warm tones contain chestnuts, coppers and golds, whereas cooler tones are ashes, violets, blues and greens. For example, a milky chocolate hair colour would be considered warm, whereas dark chocolate hair is on the cooler end of the spectrum. Warmer tones work to enhance the skin, cooler tones, although modern, can leave you needing to wear more makeup.
