How to choose the right hair color

Have you ever tried out a hair colour and found out completely didn’t suit you after the whole process was finished? The reason could be your skin colour. Beyond the basic choices of brown, blonde, red or black, the infinite number of shades available can make picking the right hair colour for you impossible. If you like crazy and unusual hair colours, the choice becomes even harder. Your hair colour can affect your looks and make your skin tone look vibrant or dull. Keep reading to learn how to find out exactly which hair colour will suit you the best.


Blonde hair colour

Shades like platinum, ice, silver and champagne look great on those, who have cool skin colour with reddish undertones. The slightly blue cast in these blonde shades will counteract ruddiness of your skin. If you decide to go with one of these shades, make sure you use a “purple” shampoo and conditioner to keep the colour from yellow.

If you have fair, pale skin with blue undertones, go slightly warmer with your blonde by choosing gold, caramel, amber, honey or butterscotch. Honey or caramel blonde is also a good choice for those with olive skin color and neutral undertones or deep skin. If you have very warm undertones, you should avoid warm blonde, as too much yellow can make you look sallow. Use toner frequently to avoid the color going brassy.

Cool brown shades like chestnut, mocha, dark chocolate and dark auburn look great on those, who have skin with warm undertones. If you’ve got yellow undertones, consider using a cool brown hair color to brighten up your complexion.

Pick a warm brown shade like golden brown, honey, amber, mahogany or cinnamon if you have medium colour skin with warm undertones.


Red hair colour

Cool reds including auburn, burgundy and true red will look great on those with fair skin with reddish undertones. The bluish red cast of your hair will make your skin pop instead of looking ruddy. If you have deep skin colour, choose a cool auburn, because warmer red tones will make your skin look greenish.

If you have neutral skin undertones or bluish undertones in fair skin, then warm red is for you. Pick your favourite one from strawberry blonde, amber, copper or rust shades. Make sure to get shampoo for colour-treated hair and avoid washing frequently to keep your colour strong as long as possible between touch ups.

Cool black hair colours like espresso, licorice, blue-black or true black will look great on those with warm undertones. If you’re fair or olive skinned, the contrast will take your yellowish undertones and give you an almost porcelain-doll look to your skin. If you have deep colour skin, you can wear cool black shades for sure.

If you want warm black shades like dark mocha, cocoa, or brown-black, then make sure you have cool undertones to your fair or medium skin colour. If you have deep skin colour, then you can also use mocha or cocoa shade to warm things up, no matter what undertone you have.

Wildin’ out

Do you want to go crazy with your next hair colour? Any colour of the rainbow can look great if done correctly. There are few pointers you should keep in mind. Warmer colours like pink, orange and yellow will look best with cool-toned skin. Cool colours like blue and purple will be particularly flattering if you have warm yellow undertones in your skin. If you have deep skin colour, go for more saturated pastel colours. Remember that nontraditional colours will fade quickly because of the lifting process used before colour is applied. Make sure you use specialized products to extend the life of your crazy shade.
