I'm trying to analyse my colours online and I can't decide which shade of brown my hair is! I have pale skin, with (I think) blue undertones - the shade of foundation boots matched me to is 'calico' which seems to have a greyish/bluish hue. I have freckles and medium blue eyes. My hair, as you can see is sort of medium brown but I can't decide it its ashy/reddy etc. Opinions?

Bloody hell is that even the lyrics, it doesn't look right on paper!

With my mind she runs.

Golden brown. I can see why you're thinking ashy though due to the roots and your fringe. Does it get quite a bit more golden toned in the summer (if it's been sunny that is, not constantly wet...) ?

I keep trying to figure out my colouring too, I'm pale and my hair was golden brown most of my childhood, then went a dark dull more ashy colour (maybe it was just dark golden brown, but it made me look dead) and green hazel eyes. Still can't figure it out as I never seem to fit any of the categories!

OK, golden brown! So perhaps my colouring is warmer than I thought - I always think cool as I'm so bloody pale.

NB I get thatvsongbin my head whenever Gordon Brown is mentioned

One of life's mysteries solved. Thought it was: lays me down with my monshiron. No idea what it was but always pictured some kind of cape. With my mind she runs makes so much more sense.

I also think you're golden brown.

Not sure on that Getdown I should be 'cool' but my hair was previously golden brown.

Maybe you're neutral? Or maybe there are just a few weird ones,myself included, who don't fit? * feels hopeful *

Mid or medium brown. My original hair colour and skin colouring.

If you have freckles then I would have thought you are a "warm".

Light golden brown hair, ivory skin. You're warmer than you think!

MsBojangles Wed 12-Aug-15 10:48:25

I always thought it was monshiron or manshiron too Eye!

Maybe we were listening to an entirely different song to everyone else? hmm

Getdownfromtherethisinstant Wed 12-Aug-15 10:51:26

So I think I'm a warm summer. smile

MsBojangles Wed 12-Aug-15 10:58:13

Or a soft autumn?

MsBojangles Wed 12-Aug-15 10:59:53


A spring or some description.

Another monshiron singer here! grin

Op, what colour are your veins? It's all confusing. I was chocolate brown I think when I was a toddler, light golden brown until teens when I went a bit dark and ashy.pale skin,Brown toned freckles rather than golden ones and green hazel eyes. I seem to have bits fitting both cool and warm,my eyes are meant to be warm but I swear my skin is cool,as is ashy hair.

In my wrist I have one definite bluey purple vein and the others verge on blue-green confused

I have similar and a (good!) hairdresser called it 'dark blond'.
And FWIW I'm a deep summer colours-wise...

CrystalMcPistol Wed 12-Aug-15 11:55:09

I thought it was 'monshiron' too!

Thought it was something to do with drugs paraphernalia.

Getdownfromtherethisinstant Wed 12-Aug-15 15:44:27

My veins are blue. I was a VERY blonde child and my hair went darker in my teens.

Golden Brown is about heroin, no?
