Choosing the best haircolor for your hair, whether you are a man or a woman, is easy once you know what to look for. Because there are so many different options when choosing hair color; warm and cool, color, and shade, learning how to pick the right hair color is crucial. Use these simple tips to pick just the right shade that will look best and most natural.
The first step in choosing the best haircolor is to check your skin tone. If you are an olive you want darker hair colors. If you are pink then you want ash tones to neutralize redness. Bold colors are best on dark skin tones, while pale skin is easily washed out by dark colors. If you are yellow hued then avoid lighter colors and head towards mahogany and deep browns.
Next is determining when you have a cool skin tone or a warm one. What color clothing suits you best? If you look your best in reds, oranges, bright golden yellows, olive greens and rust colors then you are suited for warm hair tones such as strawberry blond and golden brown. If you look best in colors such as black, royal blue or deep greens you are best suited for cool tones like platinum blond, burgundy and black. If you look best in purple, grey or teal you should look at neutral tones like sandy blonde, chocolate brown or mahogany. For an even simpler trick ask yourself if you look best in gold jewelry, silver jewelry or either. Gold suits warm skin, silver, cool, and either is neutral!
Lastly, get to know the needs of each haircolor. The best haircolor is the haircolor that not only suits your skin tone, but also the haircolor that meets your maintenance needs. Brown hair is the easiest to keep up and is best for damaged hair as it reflects light well making hair appear healthy. Red hair requires more upkeep as it fades fairly quickly, especially in damaged hair. Blondes require regular maintenance and can be pricey to keep up. Black requires a little less upkeep but is the hardest to change back into your old color if you decide you don’t want it.
