It can be difficult figuring out how to choose the best hair color. Even if you know you want to go red, or blonde, the next question is, WHICH red or blonde? The trick is not to choose the color you like best, but to choose the color that LOOKS best on you. This article will give you tips on sifting through the sea of beauty supply products and learn how to choose the best hair color for your complexion.
Do you look better in shirts in pale pinks, violet, or light blue? Do you look best in pink and mauve lipstick, or other beauty supply products? This indicates a cool skin tone. An ashy blonde or deep red would look best. A black with a blue tinge would look wild, but nice. Dark brunette would work well too. If you look better in rust, olive green, or brown, you probably have a warm skin tone. A golden blonde, medium red, or light brown would look best.
Many beauty supply products stores have ½ inch thick locks of imitation hair that is colored to look like the dye kit they represent. To determine which one will look best on you, hold it up to the underside of your wrist. Try out several, and narrow down which ones you think are best.
If you still aren't sure, ask a friend, or your stylist for advice. Or, take a break. After narrowing it down to a few colors, come back another day. You'd be surprised how well you see things with fresh eyes.
Are you aiming for professional, sexy, cute, outrageous, or an everyday look? Just as you did when you chose your hair cut and style, consider whether the color you've settled on is going to be appropriate for your lifestyle.
Often the reason hair color looks fake is because it looks flat, that is, all one color. Natural hair has a midtone, darker tones, and highlights. These are often subtle, but it's enough to look natural and "real." If you choose a hair color that takes this into account, the effect will look natural too. Good luck trying to find the best hair color!
