How to choose your perfect hair color?

Share |

Getting your hair color right is actually quite simple. But if you dare to go for radical changes it is important to learn two elementary rules when it comes to picking the best hair color for your hair.

How to choose your perfect hair color?

1. Don’t deviate from your natural color range

If your hair is dark and curly and you want to go lighter – do it! But you should remember that your hair will look better if you stay within 3 or 4 shades of your natural hair color.
And vice-versa, if you have fair hair you can go darker but any color too far away from your natural tone will look bizarre.

Guide for going blonde:

How to choose your perfect hair color?

* People with light brown to mid brown hair will look excellent with blonde highlights.

* Suits best naturally mousy blondes.

* Redheads don’t give up! You can go blonde but should do it carefully as blonde hair can look very unnatural against your skin tone.

Preferring for brunette shades is fine for blondes, but you also shouldn’t go too dark.

* Light or mid brown toned hair will match perfectly with ash and golden brown tones.

* If you are a natural blonde you should try pale chestnut tones.

* If you’d like to go from light to dark brown shades you can intersperse it with flame, auburn and chestnut tones.

2. Match your Hair Color With Your Skin Tone

There are two basic types of skin tones – warm and cool.

Those with a yellow or golden skin undertone have a warm skin tone. One more easy way to tell if you have a warm tone is to look if the veins on the inside of your arms are tinged with green.

Those with pink or blue skin undertones fall into the cool category and they have blue tinged veins.

Warm Skin Tone:

* Gold
* Honey
* Caramel
* Copper
* Red
* Mahogany
* Strawberry blonde
* Chocolate
* Ginger
* Orange based reds
* Dark browns
* Rust

Cool Skin Tone:

* Platinum
* Ash-blonde
* Cream
* Sandy
* Coffee
* Jet black

If you have

* Dark or olive skin tone, try to stay with darker hair colors.

* Yellow skin tones will look perfect with dark and rich colors, such as deep auburn or chestnut.

* And almost any color suits pale skin.

* Pink skin is magnificent for neutral tones, but can look too pink with red and gold shades.

Hair Color Tips

* Give permanent color two weeks to settle.

* Color lock shampoos and conditioners and color boosting shampoos are a quick and easy way to keep up your color.

* When you are going to color your hair, make sure you have a definite idea of what you want -don’t give yourself up to the colorist, or you might be disappointed with the results.

* Hair dyes are chemically based. If you’re pregnant, consult a doctor before dyeing your hair.

* Use caution with hair dyes that have green, blue, or purple undertones. If you mix them with warm tones, your hair color can turn out green.

    Thanks for the advice, ;)
    But, I want to dye my hair red like Rihanna’s and I have dark brown hair at the moment and freckled skin that is kind of pale though doesn’t burn in the sun unless I’m in it for hours.
    I have turquoise coloured eyes with a bit of hazel going through it.
    Would I suit Rihanna’s hair colour?

  3. Charl Says:

    I have a golden blonde hair, and I’m planning on going light blonde, my skin is very light, would it look stupid?

  4. Arty Says:

    Charl, if you are unsure you could try on a wig and see how it looks. Scarlett Johansson and Kirsten Dunst look great as blondes and they have very light skin tone. If you are like them it would suit you but still try on a wig and see how it works for you.
