How to Choose Hair Colour – An Insight


How to choose hair colour? Well, selecting the right hair shade is very important. What do you mean by the right shade? Well, a correct shade is the one that suits your skin tone, undertone, eye colour, and most importantly your personality. You must always go with a hair shade that suits your personality. You might like any shade but there is a shade for every skin tone. We all want different hair styles, looks, and colours. But it is important to know which shade suits us.

This can be done with a variety of tests. One of the best tests is the jewellery test. Take two pieces of jewellery; one silver and one gold ring/ necklace. Try it on! If your skin looks radiant with gold jewellery, then you have a warm skin tone. If your skin looks beautiful with silver jewellery, this means that you have a cool skin tone. If both the jewellery pieces look good on you, then you have a neutral skin tone. People with neutral skin tones can try any hair colour. Every colour looks good with neutral skin tones.

This is one way of determining your skin tone. Now, to determine your undertone, you must take up the vein test. Have a look at your veins! If you have green-coloured veins, then you have a warm undertone. Similarly, if you have blue-coloured veins, then you have a cool undertone. If you can’t determine the colour, you have a neutral undertone.

Now, that you know your undertone, there are certain shades that come under warm and cool skin tones and undertones. For instance, if you have a warm skin tone or undertone, shades of brown will look best with you. Similarly, if you have a cool undertone or skin tone, shades like red, purple, icy brown, etc., will look good on you. After you have known the shades that go with your skin tone and undertone, it is important to select a good hair dye.
