If you've ever seen a Cognac Ostrich Birkin on a Red-Head, then you know fabulous it is to see a hair color/handbag color match. I'm a fair-skinned blond and a Gold Togo Birkin is the bag that compliments my hair and coloring the most. If I ever find a 35cm Gold Ostrich GHW Birkin, you know that I won't be able to resist. (They're often identified as Gold but are really Cognac.)

Do you take your hair color into account when selecting the color for an Hermes bag?

yes indeed, but also skin tone and wardrobe

I have black hair and one black bag that I use sometimes, and many other non-black bags that i actually use more. So I'd say that for me it's not a factor at all. It just depends on the season and my wardrobe.
I do wear a lot of black clothing though. But I also wear white.

yes, I try to match handbags and haircolor and also those colors that will go well with my skin-tone. So far, it's the jewel colors... (I am a deep winter)

It's a really interesting question-I think if I were a redhead, then the beautiful Hermes reds/oranges would be a consideration-or if I had silver hair, I'd want those muted grays, but I'm blonde, and everything goes, as I think it would with a brunette. I think lifestyle is more of a consideration-I have lots of dogs, and my husband is quite sloppy with things like cups full of coffee.

With the exception of maybe a canary yellow bag which might not be the best for blondes, I don't take my hair colour into account AT ALL.
