Hair is the frame of the face, and quite often an extension of your personality. Choosing the right colour is fundamental to making sure the colour matches both your sense of style and your skin tones. |
There are many reasons to choose to tint your hair a different colour. Perhaps you are covering up some tell-tale gray or white hairs that have cropped up over time. Maybe you've just grown tired of your natural colour and want to freshen it up with a whole new colour. Many people simply want a slightly lighter or darker shade than their natural colour.
Whatever the reason, choosing a hair colour is more than just finding a shade you like. You need to take into account the tones that will complement your skin, as well as the natural undertones of your hair.
Quite often, dark hair colours have reddish undertones, and lightening this type of hair often brings out the red. Colours like golden blonde or other warming shades can actually increase the red pigment on this hair type. If this is the look you want to achieve, it's perfect, but if you were hoping for more blonde than red, stay away from warm golds and caramels.
Ash colours will reflect a lighter shade. These shades are cooler, without the warmth of reds and will work well in hair that tends to go red or orange. It's the ideal shade to lighten a deep brunette, and is often the tone found in highlighting formulas.
The depth of change in the colour you choose, while it is a personal choice, should also take your skin tone into consideration. White blonde is not suitable for deep skin tones and dark eyes, as it tends to wash out your natural face colour. Not everyone can make it as a redhead either, but many people will get a boost in their facial colouring by adding a little tinge of red to their colour.
Deep black can be mysterious and alluring, but very pale skin can't always hold this contrast. Those with olive skin are better suited for this bold look.
Whether you do it yourself at home, or seek the services of a stylist, tinting your hair is an exciting way to change your appearance and brighten up your face and skin.
