Beauty is in the eye of the beholder
What do YOU think is the best hair color?
And to go along with it, what eye color is your favorite to match your favorite hair color?

Love black hair and blue eyes on either sex too.

My personal fave is my black hair, it goes well with my hazel eyes, olive skin and pink lips I think nature did a great job but I did love my fire truck red hair too but it was way too high maintenance .

For myself... I only look good with lighter hair. Dark hair makes me look washed out. I have light skin and freckles. I've tried darker hair and it looks silly on me. I have green eyes and have tried brown contacts... they look reddish on me and make me look like a demon. lol

I've always preferred blonde and green or blue eyes for women. BUT... it really depends on the individual. Some women look much better with dark hair or brown eyes than they would with blonde and light eyes. Generally speaking, I usually find blonde women more attractive.

It's different with men, however... I usually always prefer dark hair and brown puppy dog eyes.

I've had mine all sorts of colours but right now I'm loving my dark purple locks and deep blue eyes combo.

I think it depends really. I love darker skin, lighter eyes, darker hair. However, my perfect hair and eye color would be auburn (not the gray that is currently showing through) and blue eye.
My daughter dated a boy that was olive toned, really dark hair, and amber eyes. I have never seen anyone with this color eyes and it was hard not to stare to verify it wasn't contacts. Nope, his eyes were naturally that color.

I love red hair too esp with green eyes, but black or dark brown with blue or green is striking too

And I find that the high-contrast look really only works if it's natural. I tried dying my hair black once.

I looked like I'd been inexpertly embalmed.

It was not a good look for me.

Yeah, I love the look of very dark hair, fair skin, and icy blue, especially if they also have dark eyebrows and eyelashes. It's very striking.

For myself, where I have bright aqua eyes, I like having red hair. I think it just suits. It's SO hard to get the right red, though -- most red dyes are either too purply or too bright-orange. This is the colour I'm always striving for: http://www.modelvolume.com/alicia_witt/a...

For men, I prefer dark hair. Eye colour isn't important.

My son has gorgeous blue eyes and sandy hair. It's not an extremely striking combination, but he just looks like an adorable little surfer dude, so it works.

I agree, I love my contrast, super white skin, dark brown hair and bright blue eyes. And freckles, I really like my face :-)

That picture is a great example of the contrast I'm talking about. It's not so much what color, it's the contrast that is attractive.

I love blonde hair with brown eyes. You don't see it naturally very often though.

Gotta love dark hair and bright blue or green eyes, such as in this famous portrait - http://ngm.nationalgeographic.com/ngm/10... I expected to have a dark eyed, dark haired child (based on my partner and I) but I birthed a curly blonde green eyed boy! So of course I love that combo now. Hair colours of all sorts can be amazing, I cut my SIL's red hair yesterday, so many different colours of red in her hair, only noticed when I looked up close.

I'm asking personally, like to see how everyone has a different perspective on the most beautiful hair and eye colors.
So far there's quite a variety of preferences!

The contrast is so nice
I love Blondes and strawberry blondes who are natural....so pretty

Red, hands down! :) Of course, I could be a little biased... :) I do get an awful lot of compliments on my hair color though! I like red hair with green eyes. Although mine are blue.

Opposite sex, I think I like brown hair, but my boys are pretty adorable with their white blonde hair and blue eyes!

Are you asking for people in general or for us personally? In general, I think it depends on the person's skin tone. Dark hair on a olive skinned woman is flattering; bleached blonde hair looks like crap on the same woman. I think the best eye color for a person tends to be the one with the greatest contrast between the rest of their face (e.g., a dark haired, dark skinned person looks more striking with green eyes than brown; a blonde haired person can really go any way on eye color since they all contrast).

My own perfect hair and eye color for me would be medium brown hair with lots of natural red highlights/shimmer and very green eyes.



Typically, I am least attractive to blonde hair and blue eyes. I'm not really sure why though.

So far, I've liked my hair pink or black or a rich red with black highlights the best. I'm still thinking of trying teal.

I love all colors of eyes.

In the opposite sex, I prefer long dark straight hair.
