    How to choose the best hair colour.

    Wondering how to choose the best hair colour? With so many colour trends out there, so many colour choices and so many ideas, making the choice can be a little overwhelming. If you have never coloured your hair before, it is even harder to know which colour to choose. Although you should always choose the colour that you love - whatever that may be - there are a few things you’ll want to consider when choosing the best hair colour.

    Choosing the Right Hair Colour

    To make sure that your hair colour suits you perfectly, here’s what to consider.

    Your skin tone

    This is quite a general guideline. Traditionally, the advice was that fair skin tones work best with lighter hair shades and darker skin tones work best with darker hair tones. This approach is pretty dated, though. You can go as light or dark as you like, whatever your skin tone. With that said, looking a warm skin and hair tones vs cool skin and hair tones can help you choose a shade that accentuates rather than clashes. Contrast is great… as long as it does not look out of place or make you look washed out.

    Your eye colour

    A bold contrast between hair and eye colour can look amazing. It can also look a bit off. Just like skin tone, you get cool and warmer eye colours. You also get a massive range of hair tones - some natural and some bright and bold. Some eye colours will work with every shade. Brown eyes are neutral and there is almost no risk of clashing. Blue and green eyes can work with many colours but may not work for colourful tones such as purple, green or pink. Adding in your skin tone, and you’ll see why it’s important to find the right balance.

    Your hair type

    Finally, it’s also worth taking your hair type into consideration.Highlights look different on straight, waving, curly and natural hair types. Likewise, red, blonde and brown tones look different on each hair type. Bold colours can also look darker, lighter, duller or brighter depending on your hair type. Rather than assuming your hair will look just like it appears on the box, it’s good to remember that it will look different on every person. 

    There are a few ways to find the best colour that suits you perfectly. You could try an app that lets you upload your photo to virtually try on colours. An even better option is to do a strip test. This will give you a very good idea of how the colour will look with your skin colour, eye colour and hair type.
