The Right Hair Colour

As long as you stick to colours that complement your skin tone and don't stray too far from your natural shade, getting the right hair colour is simple. Your skin tone, eye colour and the level of contrast between your complexion and features all need to be considered when choosing the correct shade for you. This is why Perfecting You have launched their new Online Hair Colour Adviceservice.
 
A Perfecting You Stylist can advise you on hair colour but there are also a few tips below to get you started. 
 
Skin Tone
Knowing whether you have a warm or cool skin tone is essential when choosing hair colour. Warm skin tones will need to stick to warm golden, honey, chestnut, auburn or copper shades, whereas cooler skin tones should look for ash blondes and browns, platinum, white or burgundy tones. Click hereto find out more information about getting your colours analysed to find out your skin tone.

Is blonde right for you?
If you were blonde as a child, the chances are that you will probably look good as a blonde adult. However, if your skin tone is warm, choose golden, honeyed shades and if it's cool, choose ash or platinum blonde.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Golden Blonde - Kate Hudson                              Ash blonde - Gwen Stefani
 
A good rule of thumb is never to go more than two shades lighter than your original shade. (For professional advice about which hair colour you should choose, click here).
 
Something to remember when dying your hair blonde - it can be very expensive to keep it looking fresh. Blonde is the hardest colour to get right with a home dye kit so it may mean regular trips to the hairdressers to keep your roots from showing. To get the most natural effect, it is best to opt for highlights rather than an all over colour as it will look sun kissed with more depth and texture as opposed to appearing monochromatic. Highlights also last longer than an all over colour. They will probably only need to be touched up every two to three months, whereas an all over colour will show root growth quicker and you may need to visit the hairdressers every six weeks.
 
Tips for Brown Hair
Again, it is wise to stay within two shades lighter or darker than your original colour. Skin tone is very important so if you have a cool skin tone, give flat, ash and coffee coloured browns a try.
 
  
However, if you have a warm skin tone, give mocha, chestnut and caramel browns a try.
 
 
  
Your hairdresser should be able to show you the colours that are warm and the ones that are cool. Self colour hair kits also give a colour description on the box so take note of the words that they use to decipher whether they will be warm or cool.
 
Sometimes, brown hair can look dull, especially if it is dry and hasn't been looked after. A few lowlights or highlights will liven it up and will add texture and depth. (For professional advice about which hair colour you should choose, click here).
 
Once you've decided which colour you want, you need to decide whether you are going for a quick solid colour change or a gradual switch over. Here are the most popular methods:
 
Permanent Hair Colour
This is the most effective way to achieve brown hair as it can be used to make your hair dark brown, light brown or any other brown shade in between. It uses chemicals to permanently alter the hair strands that the permanent dye is applied to but does not affect new growth (which is why you get re-growth).
Demi-Permanent Hair Colour
Demi-permanent is a good option if you’re after dark brown shades but won’t help with lighter brown shades as it can’t lighten hair. It is gentler than permanent hair colour and the colour will wash out in about 25 shampoos.
Semi-Permanent / Temporary Hair Colour
Both semi-permanent and temporary hair colours are a good option if you just want to see if you like brown hair before fully committing to a total colour. Semi-permanent hair colour will give you a darker brown shade for around 6 to 8 shampoos before fading out while a temporary hair colour lasts for 1 wash.
 
What About Red Hair?
Red hair is the most eye catching and daring colour to go, but it is important to choose the correct red. Red hair is usually associated with warmer skin tones but cooler skin tones can pull it off as long as they look for the bluer, burgundy shades. If you are thinking of colouring your hair red, stick within 3 or 4 shades of your natural hair colour because otherwise, it will fade too fast.

This season, Pantone have suggested that a key trend is to mix warm and cool colours together in an outfit.

Before hair coloring we should aware about hair color quality. It shouldn't have with more chemical because lots of use of chemical can be very harmful for our hair.

These are great advice. I think that hair colour is something that can be impulsively done or given a long thought. Either way, it's fun to experiment because it gives a woman a sense of adventure and free spirit.
