How to choose the right color for your hair!
To get a natural result that suits you well, it is not enough to know what your favorite color is. Before deciding what color to dye your hair, you will need to consider several factors, including the undertone of your skin, the natural color of your hair, and the color of your eyes. These are in fact, fundamental aspects that you should take into account to obtain an ideal result that best enhances your face and your colors.
So let's see a series of tips from which to be inspired in choosing the right hair color for you!
Check the color of your skin
The first step is undoubtedly to identify the undertone of your skin and thus determine if you have a complexion with warm or cool colors. A foolproof method to find out? Check the veins. That's right, the color of the veins - and specifically, the predominance of blue or green veins - can help you tell if your skin tone is warm or cool.
Go out into an outer space, turn your hands with palms facing up and look at your wrists. Try to understand what the color of the veins looks like through the skin.
If your veins have a blue tint, it does not mean that you are of noble blood, but that the background color of your skin is cold, on the contrary, if the color of the veins seems to have a green tint, it means that the background color of the your skin is warm. This is the starting point to then proceed with the list of the most suitable colors to choose from to obtain a top result.
Those who have skin with cold undertones - which generally correspond to a diaphanous complexion, white or pink, and in any case tending to pink tones - should prefer decisive and equally cold tones, which thus enhance the starting colors by creating fascinating mix of contrast . For women with lunar or porcelain skin, for example, reds, jet black or cold and icy blond are among the most suitable colors that promise a truly chic result. Women with dark skin but with cold undertones can instead opt for a strong dark brown, with mocha shades and more intense brown-blacks.
On the other hand, those with warm undertones - and therefore tending to yellow rather than pink - should focus on warm and golden colors. From warm chocolate, to golden brown and caramel, to coppery red. For the lighter ones, always with warm undertones, the most suitable are the various light browns, honey blondes - and in general all blondes with golden shades rather than cold or ice - and reds with golden reflections.
Now that you have a clearer idea about the colors that will enhance you, let's move on to analyze other aspects to get closer to the perfect hair color for you.
Consider the color of your eyes
The color of the eyes and that of the hair go hand in hand, it is therefore essential to take this into consideration as much as that of the skin in choosing the right color.
If your eye color is dark brown, the shades of dark browns and intense dark browns will give you a lot. For example, try a coffee color and you will get a refined and super chic result.
With hazel eyes, perhaps even with green veins, the ideal color is a warm golden brown, a caramel or a brighter honey color.
Light green eyes go best with cold colors, while dark green or warm green ones recall warm and bright colors. Here then, cold and ashy blondes, dark browns or intense reds for the first case, and golden or copper browns and warm blondes for the second.
If, on the other hand, your eye color is blue or gray, the ideal will be a hair color with cooler shades, such as ash, cool blond or dark browns.
Do you also want to revise the cut after the color?
