6 Small Yet Basic Things To Keep While Choosing A Hair Colour

#1. Your skin colour and shades of makeup

The most obvious consideration has to be your skin colour. And in addition, it is vital to also consider the shades that you use for your regular makeup. Women who use shades of subtle pinks, browns and reds for makeup always look nice in blonde highlights, natural browns, medium reds or caramel colours. And, women with a dusky complexion may want to experiment with a single or double streak of dark red or brown like mahogany, toffee, maple brown and other warm shades.

#2. Professional commitments, if any

Believe it or not, but your profession has a lot to do with the hair colour you choose to go for. You wouldn’t want to scare your clients away with a vibrant pink hair like the one Sunny Leone got done, right? Moreover, it will not be professional either unless your boss is chilled out. So, keep your professional activities, your boss and your office culture in mind while choosing the colour.

#3. Your personality

A lot of women are very conscious of their dressing and look and what it conveys about them. If you too feel so, then you must choose a hair colour that complements your personality. If you love going a little edgy, you could opt for strong contrasts to your natural colour and if you like to keep it simple, then go in for subtle highlights and natural shades.

#4. Hair texture and hair style

If you have frizzy hair, do not go for contrasting highlights or blonde colours. They are bound to put the spotlight on your frizzy ends. If you have nice and thick curls, going in for very dark and contrasting shades to your natural colour will add to the bounce of your hair and make them look voluminous. On the other hand, going in for similar colours will make them look messy. So, consult your hairstylist about your hair texture and style before taking the plunge.

#5. Quality of water to wash your hair

Tips for hair colour

Anything which is not natural has the scope of little damage, if not huge. When getting your hair coloured, if you think you bathe with hard water and cannot do much about it, try sticking to colours that match your natural hair colour. The more you go away from the original shades, the more evident it will be for others to see the colour wearing off after a little time. 

#6. Word for first timers

If this is your first time experimenting with hair colours, then do not go for permanent colouring. Stick to a semi-permanent colour. Other than this, it is best to follow a thumb rule: always go two to three shades away from your natural colour, not more than that.  

Keep these tips in mind while you are finalising a colour for your hair to make a safe choice and look stunning at that!
