The Right Hair colour Advise:

10 May

Getting the shade that compliments your

skin, eyes and that you feel good in – that is the trick!

{Oh my good is this the right shade!}

Are you cool?

Your skin tone and eye colour play a big role in helping to determine which hair colour will be best for you there are two main categories, depending on the above: cool and warm.

Cool category:

eyes: deep brown or black brown; Grey blue or dark blue; hazel with white, Grey or blue flecks;

skin tone: very dark brown; true olive (most Asians and Latinos); medium with no color in cheeks medium with faint pink cheeks; medium with golden undertones ;pale with no color in cheeks ;pale with pink undertones ;brown or bronze when you tan;

Natural hair colour: blue black ; deepest coffee brown ; medium ash brown; medium golden brown dishwater blonde; salt and pepper; white.

If you were two or more of these, then you fall into the cool category. Naturally cool people should avoid gold, yellow, red and bronze tones in hair colour. These warm tones have a tendency to make you look sallow and drawn. The best hair colour shades, depending on your skin tone, are shiny raven-wing blacks, cool ash browns, cool blondes in shades ranging from mink to platinum and icy white. You’re also fortunate enough to be able to wear many exciting “unnatural” hair colours like lipstick reds, burgundies, and orchids, purples.

Warm category:

eyes: golden brown ; green, green blue or turquoise; hazel with gold or brown flecks;

skin tone: brown with pink undertone; brown with golden undertone; pale with peach or gold undertones; freckled;

Natural hair colour:

Deep brown with gold or red highlights red; strawberry blonde; grey with a yellow cast; natural golden blonde.

If you were two or more of these, then you fall into the warm category. You should avoid blue, violet, white and jet-black hair, ash based hair colours which will seem to “wash out” your natural colour. Depending on your skin tone and your preferences, you’ll find dark, warm browns, rich golden browns and auburn, warm gold and red highlights, and golden blond shades look best on you. Highlighting is a great way to add warm tones to your hair. see previous blog on natural high lights using high lift blonde matching shades with your natural colour.

What ever your colouring:

I think the key thing here is does the colour you are choosing for your hair make your eyes pop! if it compliments your skin tone and your eye colour then it’s a go!!
