The Right Hair Color

For the first time hair color users, the biggest dilemma is of course choosing the right shade of hair color. This process can be made easier by learning the basic things that should go into your decision making at the time of choosing a hair color.

Till a few years back, the use of hair color had no more importance than to cover up gray hair, however today the scenario is quite different and hair color is sought by younger generation to sport groovy hairdos. And since most girls today begin using hair color at a very early age, it becomes all the more important to make the wise choice if you don’t want to end up as a laughingstock.

The first choice that you need to make is whether you want to use a permanent hair color or a semi-permanent hair color. And that will depend on what your objective is, if you’re doing it to cover your gray then permanent hair color should be your choice while when you’re doing it for highlighting purpose you can always opt for semi-permanent hair color.

The shade choice should be influenced by your skin tone and the color of your eyes. While lighter skin tones can just experiment with almost all different shades, the ones with warmer skin tones are better off with shades of red, golden and brown. And for those who have a pinkish skin tone ash, cool brown and sandy shades are the best. Also it is important that you take your decision about the shade of the hair color keeping in mind the natural color of your hair, since the same shade of color can produce different shades when applied to different shades of natural hair color.

The basic idea is that whatever hair color you choose, it should enhance your beauty by complementing your skin, your eyes and your overall face. But when you are not sure or are unable to decide on the shade of the hair color, let your hair stylist do it for you, for he has more experience.

And one last note: don’t go by the price of the hair color rather by the quality since cheaper hair colors tend to use chemicals which can severely affect your skin and your eyes, apart from your hair, over the long run.
