Do you intend to dye your hair just because your favorite actress got a new hair color? You may regret the decision.
Choosing a new hair color isn’t as simple as you think. What if it won’t look good on you? So, you need to carefully choose a color for your hair if you don’t want to regret later.
The right hair color will complement your skin and make you look younger. But if you make the wrong choice, you’ll only end up looking washed out. Your hair stylist can guide you about the color suitable for your hair.
Here are some useful tips through which you can determine which shade can work for you:
Know Your Skin Tone
Unless you know of your skin tone, it won’t be easy to choose the right hair color. There are two major skin tones: warm and cool skin tones. Warm skin can be further categorized into summer and autumn, whereas the sub-categories of cool skin tones include spring and winter.
If you have a lighter skin with jewel-toned eye colors and don’t get a tan easily, you’ve got a winter skin tone. You can go for jet black, dark brown or dark blue shades.
If you have a fair skin with light colored eyes, your skin tone is spring cool. Platinum blonde, Ashy brown, and colors with a green or blue base will great on you.
People having golden brown or hazel green eyes and have dark brown hair usually have an autumn warm skin tone. You should choose copper, golden brown or chocolate brown tones for your hair.
If your skin is golden olive that looks bronze when you tan, you’ve got a summer warm skin tone. Your go-to hair color shades are caramel brown, honey colors, and rich golden brown.
Know Your Preferences
If you like a hair color but didn’t try it out ever because you were afraid of other’s opinion about you, then it’s time you should prioritize your preferences. If you like the color and know that it’ll go well with your skin tone, you should definitely give it a try.
Your favorite hair color will make you feel more like yourself. So, don’t get discouraged if others suggest that a particular hair color isn’t for you. If you like it, go get it!
Consider Your Age
As you age, lighter shades will look better on you. It’s because your skin loses pigments and dark-colored hair highlight the wrinkles on your skin. So, it’s best to opt for light shades and leave dark shades for youngsters.
Moreover, you should also consider the condition of your hair. If you’ve damaged your hair through dyes, bleach or by over-washing it, you shouldn’t go for a drastic change. You should rather choose dark shades to prevent further damage to your hair.
Now that you know how to decide on the right hair color, you can book an appointment with your hair salon to get a new look.
