This post has been verified by Ali Nowroozi

Wondering how to choose a chemo headscarf that feels just right for you? Picking the perfect chemo headscarf color can be a tricky task and more often than not you will end up with tonnes of headscarves you just don’t use or like. So, shopping with some handy tips and tricks in mind can not only save you time and money but it can also relieve some of the stress shopping can sometimes cause. Let’s get right into it!


How to choose the chemo headscarf for you!


Think about your complexion

The complexion is a big factor when considering which colors will suit you best. Your complexion can often change when going through cancer treatments and it can be confusing when your favorite colors to wear suddenly don’t suit you anymore.

Some tips to remember is to not be afraid to go bold in color and to experiment with different shades. For paler skin tones, try a deep red or a royal blue, these will complement your skin beautifully and will make any outfit stand out! Our favorites include the Iris headscarf in Navy and our Jewel hat in the color Red golden flower.

For those of you who consider yourselves as medium skin-colored you have huge flexibility when it comes to color as it is unlikely anything will wash you out. Earthy tones on your skin type will help keep that warmth in your face and more pastel colors will work great for you in spring and summer. You can even bring in that color pop for when you are feeling something bright and fun, plus you can match your lip color to your headscarf to pull the look altogether. Try giving our Lola headscarf in the color brown a try!

For darker skin tones why not try some more fluorescent colors, such as bright pink, yellow, or orange. These colors are really going to showcase your amazing skin tone, bring out your eyes, and add a stunning splash of color to any outfit.

For more day to day colors, try out earthy tones that will suit any outfit and still emphasize your naturally beautiful warm glow.


How To Choose a Chemo Headscarf style for Your Eye Color


Eye color is important too!

I always feel like eyes are the most amazing feature a person has, whether blue, green-brown, or grey, eyes can express so much wisdom, emotion, and depth. In fact, one of the most common attributes that people look at first is the eyes, so why not choose a headscarf color that will emphasize these gems even more?

When picking the right color for your eyes it is all about contrast. Pick the colors on the opposite side of the color wheel to your eyes. For example, people with green and hazel eyes should choose pinks and purples as these will help create the best contrast. A red tone will also work really well with these eye colors.

For blue eyes, try rich brown shades that will warm up the eye. Anything with a red or orange base to it will work, either way, the more bronze the better!

Brown-eyed people, you are in luck! Pretty much any color will make your eyes pop as you are considered natural on the color wheel. So, choose any colors other than browns and blacks and you are guaranteed to look amazing!


Don’t be afraid to experiment!


Even though picking the correct headscarf color for you may seem like the tiniest thing in the world right now, it can actually be extremely empowering. By being bold, choosing the color you want, without doubt, can be very self-empowering and it can inspire so many people around you.

A headscarf may not be a big deal to some people, but for others, it can take a huge amount of confidence to wear one but the key to solving this is by empowering everyone. Even if it means trying out tonnes of different colors, styles, and materials, to find a headscarf that you love, it is all worth it at the end of the day when you can proudly look in the mirror and say “I look beautiful.


So, if you are unsure, afraid or simply confused, then remember that we are here to help, no matter how big or small the problem, we want your headscarf shopping experience to be the best it can be. More details can be found in our How to care for headwear & headscarves guide.
