Hair color correction is a big money maker in salons nationwide. The reason: over-the-counter coloring products have given consumers the impression that hair color is easy and extremely affordable. One look at a professionally-colored model on a commercial or glossy magazine page, and many people clamor to the closest drug store to purchase a $5 box of color with the hopes of receiving a $50 salon look.
Before coloring your hair, keep two things in mind. Ensure any color you use is appropriate for your skin tone. Going too dark or light for your skin tone can make you appear dull or washed out. Skin tones are categorized as warm, cool and neutral. Warm looks best in warm colors, cool looks best in cool colors and neutral can work almost any color.
Second, be careful with how far you vary from your natural color. If you have dark brown hair and want to go blonde, choose a warmer blonde for best results. Going extreme can cause damage to your hair and may take several colorings for the hair to reach the desired shade. Going from dark to light also takes longer to process and requires much more maintenance.
Hair Color For Brown Eyes
The key to choosing the right hair color for here is to always avoid boring, dull browns. Brown eyes work great with pretty much any shade of brown and even many blonde shades, especially warmer tones. Look for dimensional color to prevent making both the hair and eyes appear lackluster. Darker brown eyes work perfect with darker shades of brown. Adding dirty blonde highlights truly makes brown eyes stand out.
If you want to go even darker, brown eyes look great with black hair. If you have a cool skin tone, black may not work well for you. Try to avoid pure blacks with no shine. Black hair only works for brown eyes when it is shiny.
Hair Color For Blue Eyes
Traditionally, blue-eyed girls are associated with having blonde hair. This doesn’t mean that’s the only color that looks great on them. Blue eyes paired with cool, fair skin look best with warmer shades of blonde, chestnuts and coppery reds. They also rock cooler shades as well. Adding golden or reddish highlights compliments eyes and skin tone.
The best hair color for blue eyes paired with warm skin tones are beige or ash colors. Darker blondes and browns such as chestnut, blue black and coffee also work well. Blue eyes can even work reds. Add even more color with purple, red or blonde highlights.
