The Right Hair Color For You at Legends Salon
How to choose the right hair color for your skin tone
We all struggle at one point or another to find the right color for our hair. Maybe you are tired of your old color and you feel it just isn’t doing anything for you anymore. Maybe the problem isn’t the color but the style. Or maybe you need some highlighting to bring out your skin tone. Whatever the reason is, contact your hair salon to help you decide what the next step should be. Don’t try to do it alone!
A good hair salon will help you determine not only what color would work for your hair but can help you actually determine what your skin tone is. You can also determine your skin tone on your own. Look at your wrist color at the upper part of your hand. For example, if your skin there is an olive complexion that means you are a spring so you will be more of a gold tone.
According to the book “Color Me Beautiful,” by Carole Jackson, your color is a season. For instance, gold-tone complexions tend to be autumn and spring while cool tones are winter and summer. If you go with a color that is cool and you are an autumn or spring, then it will wash you out. If your veins are more yellow, you have olive skin and you should go with hair color that has golden, caramel tones. Try paper-thin highlights of golden caramel around your face to make your eyes pop. Bluer veins denote fair skin. You should use cool tones like ash if your veins are blue.
It is determined that 75% of the world’s population is winter but, if you aren’t sure, have your hair stylist help you determine what your tone is. Your eye color will also help in determining your best hair color and your hair salon should know this as well.
As long as you keep your natural hair color involved, you will have the best color for your skin. The best way to determine your natural hair color if it’s been a few years since you have seen it is to look at a picture of yourself when you were younger. Around the age of fifteen or before you started coloring your hair. This will show the real color your hair should be. Nature gets it right every time and this is the color that best suits you!
