Are you thinking of getting coloured contact lenses? Our handy guide on matching your eye colour to your hair colour can help you pick the best option. Whether you have brown, black, blonde, or red hair, we have a wide range of options when it comes to coloured contact lenses (prescription and non-prescription), so we’re sure we’ll be able to match you up with a lovely pair that complements your tresses.

Which coloured contact lenses are best for blonde hair?

If you have blonde hair, you’ll be pleased to know that this hair colour suits a variety of eye colours and can make even the most subtle eye shades appear more vibrant. However, the most popular eye colour for blonde hair is blue. Both light and dark shades of blue will pop on blonde hair. Our most popular options for blue coloured contact lenses include comfi Colors Enhance and Freshlook Colorblends.

If blue isn’t quite your colour, then green is a great alternative. We’d recommend a fresh green shade for a lighter look rather than a deeper shade of green. But if you’re after an even rarer colour than green, try violet contact lenses. This will give you a cool, mystical look.

Coloured contact lenses for red hair

Did you know that less than 2% of the world’s population have natural red hair? If your gorgeous red hair didn’t naturally come with green eyes, try green contact lenses from Air Optix Colors or SofLens Natural Colours—the contrast between the two shades is electric. You don’t have to choose a specific shade, either, as all shades of green will suit red hair.

That’s not to say a lovely blue colour wouldn’t also suit red hair – it absolutely will. Hazel is also a great match for redheads – for this, we recommend Pure Hazel by FreshLook One Day.

The best coloured contact lenses for brown hair

Brown hair and brown eyes are generally a winning combination. You may not get the immediate striking contrast, but you will find that brown eyes can in fact give your look a nice ‘pop’.

Whilst brown is the most common eye colour, there are plenty of shades of brown to play around with if you opt for coloured lenses. Freshlook ColorBlends offers two gorgeous shades to choose from – Brown and Honey.

Black hair is the perfect backdrop to almost any eye colour. Blue and green colours will create quite the contrast (if you don’t mind turning heads), whilst darker shades such as brown will give you a more subtle effect. If you want to be in the world’s 1% of those with the rarest grey eye colour – why not try our comfi Colors 1 Day Timeless Grey colour.

Whether you have blonde, red, brown or black hair, the second most important thing is ensuring you love your new coloured contact lenses, the first is ensuring you are getting your eyes tested as frequently as your optician recommends, and obtaining a prescription.
