The thing about beauty is that it relies on a careful combination of factors rather than just one beautiful component. A lot of people like to say “I like blond hair” or “I like black hair” as well as “I like green/blue/hazel/etc. eyes.” Most of us fail to consider, however, that it’s not just the specific eye or hair color that we like but the combination of both, together with the skin tone, the hairstyle, the clothes, facial features, and so on. Just dyeing your hair to a certain color is as likely to be a positive change as it is to be a negative one – it depends on your eyes and the rest of your features.
So, since the eye and hair colors seem to be the driving factors that need to be considered, which are the most attractive hair and eye color combinations out there? There are some that are so popular that you’re guaranteed to have heard of them even if you don’t pay much attention to this stuff but there are also some unorthodox combinations that you might not have considered.
Let’s go over the most popular and beloved hair and eye color combinations out there:
Blond hair and blue eyes
A very infamous combination, the blond plus blue choice is so popular that some people are starting to call it overrated. It’s not so much the combination that’s the problem, however, as the fact that too many people are trying to go for it even when it doesn’t suit their skin tone and facial features. That’s what popularity often leads to.
However, if you do have the right features to pull off this combo or if you simply have natural blond hair and deep blue eyes – congratulations.
Brown hair and light hazel eyes
If you’re wondering “What’s the best hair color for hazel eyes?” the good ol’ brown hair color is probably the best option. A simple, yet very effective combination, especially together with a warm skin tone, brown hair, and hazel eyes can be extremely captivating. Especially on a woman, this combination tends to very warm, soft, and alluring to most men.
Red hair and dark blue eyes
If you thought that the best hair color for blue eyes is blond, then there are a couple of other hair colors that would like to disagree. Red, in particular, can be a stunning combination with deep and dark blue eyes. Especially with a true red color and not something like a strawberry blond, and especially with red eyelashes, dark blue eyes can be a sight to behold. It is a rare combination, however, both naturally and for dyed hair.
Brown hair and green eyes
What hair color goes with green eyes? Our money’s on brown even though we’ll list a couple of other great suggestions below. Brown hair and green eyes are a classic combination, however, and a powerful answer to the somewhat clichéd blond hair + blue eyes for a lot of people. Brown hair plus green eyes tend to have the same captivating effect on people, however, without being so stereotypes all of the time.
There are a lot of variations to this combo too – it can look different depending on how light or dark the brown of your hair is, what overtones it has, as well as what the tones of the green in your eyes are as well.
Black hair and purple eyes
One of the rarest and prettiest eye colors, purple eyes tend to go best with raven black hair. Truthfully, this eye color is so captivating, especially on a face with good-looking features that virtually any hair color can work with it. However, black hair and lighter skin tend to make the purple eye color pop up the most, making this not just captivating but very often outright mesmerizing. If you’re lucky enough to have this combination or to be able to pull it off well with contact lens and hair dye – we humbly envy you.
Blond hair and dark brown eyes
A nice blond hair can look great with many more eye colors other than just blue, of course. Dark brown, in particular, is an often-underestimated companion for blond hair. The combination is not often talked about as both colors are fairly common but it’s effective nonetheless. The darker the brow in the eyes, the better, usually. Near-black and black eyes can also work wonderfully with blond hair, especially if the color of the hair is rich and well-maintained.
Brown hair and blue eyes
So, what hair color brings out blue eyes the best? For many, it’s neither blond nor red but brown instead. The combination of light or medium-brown hair with deep blue eyes is much more alluring than blond or red for a lot of people. Peculiarly, however, a lot of women with this combination tend to be bullied in school for it. It is unclear why that’s the case but we’d guess that kids respond to the popularity of blond + blue and deem anything else as “sub-par”, especially if it’s similar. If you’re one of those bullied girls with brown hair and blue eyes, however, don’t worry – people tend to get smarter with age and once you and those around you grow up, the beauty of the brown + blue combo will quickly be recognized.
Black hair and green eyes
Similar to the black + purple combo, black hair has the ability to make green eyes pop out very effectively, especially on a lighter skin tone. Where other hair colors can mask the effect of the green eyes a bit – which can be pretty as well – black hair color can really make the most out of bright green eyes.
Red hair and green eyes
A stunningly beautiful combination that really deserves more popularity than it currently has, red plus green can be as beautiful as red plus blue if not even more. Where sometimes blue eyes can clash with red hair depending on the skin tone, the green eye color will almost always work beautifully with red hair, regardless of whether it’s actually red or ginger.
