When it comes to big changes nothing gives a more dramatic result than changing the color of your hair.
Golden Rules Of Hair Color
When you’re choosing a hair color, it’s not as simple as picking up a box and getting that exact hair color match. Many elements factor in when coloring your hair: Your skin tone, eye color, your natural and artificial hair color all play a big role in which hair color shade will look great on you. To achieve the color result intended, the following “golden rules” should be applied.
✱ It’s All About The Base
The very best hair color will only be a shade or two lighter or darker than your natural hair color.
✱ Know Your Skin Tone
You need to determine whether you have warm-toned skin, cool-toned skin, or a neutral skin tone. Listed below are the kinds of colors that suit each skin tone.
» Hair Colors Match Warm Skin Tone: gold, honey, caramel, copper, red, ginger, rust, strawberry-blonde
» Hair Colors Match Cool Skin Tone: platinum, sandy, coffee, jet black, fawn, wine, mahogany, ash-blonde
✱ Think About Your Eye Color
The color that you choose should make your eyes pop and stand out. Light skin with blue eyes tends to look great in hair that is blonde or light brown with blonde highlights. Medium skin with hazel eyes pairs well with darker blonde or copper tones. Medium skin with green eyes tends to look beautiful with red hair. Dark skin with brown eyes looks fabulous with deep brown or black with copper or brown highlights.
