Choosing a Hair Color

If you have always thought about coloring your hair but were worried about choosing the right color, there is no need to wait any longer. By understanding a bit about your hair type, as well as what you wish to have your hair look like after coloring, you can comfortably make a decision on the right color for you. Less of a drastic change in your overall look, but achieving sometimes better results, hair color highlights (and lowlights) read on for the inside tips on getting your hair highlighted.

First and most important when choosing the perfect hair color for you is to determine whether you fall into the WARM or COOL category. Why is this so important? Think of it this way... Have you ever bought the wrong shade of makeup foundation. All of a sudden your skin looks orange. Or too ashy. You must have chosen a color that clashes with your natural skin tone. Just like when picking a foundation shade, you need to look at your skin tone to pick the right hair color that will compliment your tone not clash with it.

If you have dark skin (caramel to chocolate), there are a few great color options for you. Besides basic black and chocolate brown, other colors can look great on you like cinnamon, deep auburn, golden browns, and caramel blond like Beyonce. Dark blond hair can look great if you have warm, medium-dark skin. Brown eyes are best with dark blond and golden brown hair. Blue eyes are good with cinnamon and auburn hair.

Highlights are used to enhance and brighten the base color, and are usually applied more heavily along the top of the head and around the face for a brightening effect. Lowlights are darker in color or tone than the base color, and give the hair depth and the appearance of fullness when applied to the underlying layers of hair. With a multi tonal or color style there is a natural look to the color, and the awful root growth problem of many single hair colors is minimized.

Warm hair colors will be those with a yellow, golden, or amber cast and cool hair colors are ash blonds, ash browns, and black. You will look best in hair colors with the same tone as your skin. For example, warm skin tone will look best with warm hair colors. If you have pink skin that burns easily, and blue or green eyes, you'll look great with blonde hair, but avoid strawberry shades. If you have sallow skin with yellow undertones? Stay away from deep golds.

Hair color looks best when it is either slightly darker or lighter than the natural color. This may not sound very adventurous, but a small change of intensity can actually be quite satisfying and eye-popping. The slight variation is also the easiest to revert to should you desire the old color back. However, a bigger change might be desired. For this, it is necessary to compare skin tones, eye color and general coloring to come up with a complementary shade.
