Choosing the right hair color

Choosing the right hair color

Finding the ideal shade to accentuate your features and match your skin tone can be a challenging and stressful endeavor, but with some simple advice and basic information, you can have it figured out in no time. The following steps will help you to select the most appropriate shade of hair color for you specifically:

  1. Take into account your skin tone. Your skin tone has a big impact on which shade of hair color is best for you. Look for hair colors with ash or cool undertones, such as platinum blonde or ash brown, if you have lighter, cooler skin and pick warm hues like golden blonde or copper if you have darker, warmer undertones. You can pick from a large variety of hair color shades if you have neutral undertones.
  2. Consider your eye color while selecting a hair color shade. Your eye color can also influence your decision. Consider cool hues like ash blonde or platinum blonde if you have blue or green eyes. Warm colors like caramel or chestnut may appear best if you have brown eyes. Choose a hair color that will highlight the golden or green hues in your hazel eyes if you have them.
  3. Consider your natural hair color. If you have warm-toned hair, it's preferable to choose a shade that is only a few shades off from it so that it appears natural. If your hair is naturally cool toned, think about going a few tones lighter or darker.
  4. Consider the care needed. Keep in mind that lighter colors need more upkeep because they tend to fade more quickly and need more frequent touch-ups. Although darker tones require less maintenance, they might be challenging to lighten if you ever wish to return to your natural color or a lighter tint.
  5. Consult a qualified colorist. A qualified colorist can assist you in choosing the ideal shade of hair color for you while also taking into account your skin tone, eye color, and natural hair color. Additionally, they may offer you professional guidance on how to preserve the best possible results for your hair color.
  6. Consider using a temporary hair color first if you're unsure about a particular shade of hair color. By doing this, you can experiment with the color and see how it looks on you without committing to a permanent hair color. This is a great way to build confidence before making a big decision.
  7. Consider adding highlights to your hair rather than completely dyeing it if you're unsure about a particular color. Highlights may give your hair depth and character, and they're a terrific opportunity to experiment with new colors without going all-in.

So just to recap, when selecting the proper shade of hair color, you really want to make sure that before making any rash decisions, take into account your skin tone, eye color, natural hair color, and the level of maintenance needed. If you're undecided about a particular shade, it's advisable to seek professional assistance from a colorist and test out a temporary color first. By sticking to these guidelines, you can pick the ideal hair color  that best highlights your features and harmonizes with your skin tone for fantastic results that you’re sure to love.
