Color Craft: Finding the Right Hair Color for You
With temperatures warming up, this is one of the best times of the year to think about a new look, and changing your hair color is one of the easiest ways to make it happen! The trick is finding the right color to complement your style, and these tips can help.
Skin tone is the most important consideration when choosing a style. Skin tone types are cool or warm, which is then divided into seasons. Autumn and summer are warm, and winter and spring are cool. Generally, cool tones are lighter skin with pinkish undertones, and warm tones are darker or olive skin with golden undertones. When choosing a hair color, select one that is the opposite of your skin tone. If you’re not sure about your skin tone category, ask your stylist.
The next consideration is upkeep. If you have dark hair and are thinking about going blonde, you will have a lot more touchups as the color grows out than if you choose a color that’s just a shade lighter than your own. Alternatively, you might consider going with a highlighting technique like balayage, which looks more natural as the color grows out, requiring fewer touchups.
Your hair condition is also a factor. If you regularly change colors and have damaged hair, a drastic lightening may be too damaging. Consider opting for a highlight or a darker color instead.
Finally, do what feels right. If you feel good in bright pink, go for it! If you’re nervous about a change, choose a color that is closer to your natural shade. Remember that your color reflects your style and personality, and a new look should make you feel comfortable and happy.
