Hair Color Tips

Hair Color Tips – Blonde, Brunette, Red… and more unique colors.

Pick a hair color that will compliment your skin tone and make it glow. There are two common skin tone types, warm and cool. If your skin has a bluish gray undertone and you don’t tan easily you most likely have a cool skin tone. If your skin has a peachy golden undertone and you do tan easily you most likely have a warm skin tone.
Tip: Never go more then a couple shades away from your natural color unless you’re able to keep up the hair color maintenance.

Cool skin tones: Pick soothing shades of blonde, i.e. ash blonde, beige, and honey.
Warm skin tones: Pick rich shades of blonde, i.e. golden, bronze, and caramel.
