The Right Hair Color

Friday, September 27, 2013

Do you love to color your hair?

Have you decided what color suits your hair that will match your outfit theme for the day? Have a look at the tips I have gathered below to know what color should you use that will make you it look natural and will go well with your color!

The best thing to know first is to determine what will match your skin color. There are three types of undertone colors according to a hair specialist, its either warm, cold or olive. Defining if you have warm, cold or olive undertones is to look on your veins in the wrist under the sunlight. If it is blue, then you have a cool undertone; if it is green, you have a warm undertone; if it is a mix of blue and green, you are definitely considered to have olive undertone. Normally, Asian, Middle Eastern, Latino women have warm undertones. ;)

After determining your undertones, it is the right time to pick the hair color that will suit you. ;) Take a look at the table below and see what colors matches your undertone.

Cool Warm Olive
A light ash tone, burgundy or cool browns will do and avoid coppers, auburns, or any gold colors. Most women of color have brown eyes, but if your eyes are not brown, the guidelines above still apply. Colors that are a shade darker than your skin with a warm tone, such as a bronze or caramel color will suit your warm undertone. Do not go too light gold, as you may wind up with orange hair. If your eyes are dark brown, black, or hazel color, you go with black, medium brown, or golden brown hair. A wine or auburn color would enhance your natural color. If your eyes are hazel, blue, or green and your natural hair color is light brown to medium blonde, add light or golden highlights or choose a medium brunette color on the warm side. If your eyes are blue or green and you have naturally blonde hair, stay with golden blondes and very light brunette shades. Vivid red tones and warm reds will work well for you also. If you have brown eyes, you should opt for dark brown or brunette shades. If your eyes are hazel, blue, or green, go with a light to medium brown. You should use a sandy brown to cover any gray. If your eyes are blue or green, chances are that you already have light hair naturally, and you can go light brunette or blonde
Choosing the right hair color can change how your face shape looks and will not look exaggerated if you are aiming for a natural look. Also, it will enhance your face features and remember hair is like the crowning glory, everyone will notice it so be sure to pick the right color so you will feel satisfied as well. =)
