It takes courage to decide that you want to change up your look and go for a new hair colour, so you want to be sure that it’s the best colour for you. With an almost limitless amount of shades and tones to choose from, it can be hard to make the right choice. The important things to keep in mind are that you want to match the colour to some of your existing features, such as your skin tone and eye colour. The team at Rebecca Oates Hair Salon in Bicton have put together this little guide to help you narrow down your search for the ultimate new hair colour.
Your skin tone will be the main determinant of your choice in hair colour and can help to put you on the right path when considering the dizzying amount of colours you can choose from. Examine your undertones and check the colour of your veins in the overall look and colour of your skin.
For those with warmer skin tones, choosing a warmer toned colour can really help to make the colour shine through. A nice buttery blonde is a good option for those with warm skin tones, or if you’re wanting to go down the brunette path, colours such as caramel when looking for that new perfect colour.
Cooler skin tones, on the other hand, need to look for hair colours which can help to complement this. Think of darker and cooler brunette colours such as a dark espresso or a beige blonde when looking at what may pair well with your skin tone. Or if you’re looking for something a little more fun, cooler skin tones can also be great for green, blue and purple hair colours as well.
Considering your eye colour is another essential part of how to choose the best hair colour for yourself. Being that it’s often one of the first things people notice about you, your hair colour needs to be in sync with your eye colour. If you have blue or more grey tones in your eyes, you’re probably better suited to cooler hair tones. If you have more brown or hazel coloured eyes, some of the best hair colours to consider would be darker shades of brown.
The length and style of your hair as it stands is also something that factors into your decision-making process when looking for that ultimate new hair colour. Of course, you can let your hair grow out a bit more before making a change, or perhaps you want to have a little trim and style before having a colour. The length of your hair can completely change your look and so you want to think about what length may work best for the colour that you’re wanting to try.
