A new hair color is a quick way to update or recharge your look and it can be fun and uplifting to do. The right shade can compliment your skin tone, brighten your eyes and enhance your natural coloring, but we all know how devastating it can be when the color is all wrong! The most basic rule of hair color is to make it look as natural as possible and as a general rule of thumb, don't go more than two shades away from your natural color. The secret is to select a hue that complements your skin tone. Here are some shades to look for in home-color-kits (or to request at the salon).
Skin Type: Pale
Hues for You: Warm reds and browns or golden blondes, which will brighten your face.
Avoid: Pale blondes, they'll wash you out.
Skin Type: Olive
Hues for You: Dark browns and black, both look striking against your skin tone.
Avoid: Reds, they can clash with your skins yellow undertones.
Skin Type: Pink/Ruddy
Hues for You: Cool reddish hues, which will bring out your skin's pretty flush.
Avoid: Pale blondes and black, the contrast with your skin is too extreme.
Skin Type: Dark
Hues for You: Warm browns (like mocha and mahogany) or yellow-blondes (like honey) will give your face a great glow.
Avoid: White blondes and cool reds, which will detract from the warm undertones in your skin.
