Things to Consider When Choosing a Hair Color

hair colorAs the seasons change, you may be feeling the tug to change up your look. One of the easiest ways to do this is to change your hair color. However, choosing the right hair color isn’t always as easy as picking out a shade that appeals to you.

There are a lot of things to consider when choosing a hair color. Here are some of them.

Skin tone

Before you decide on a hair color, it is important that you have a basic knowledge of what cool and warm shades look like and if those shades will work with your complexion.

If your skin contains cool undertones, look for hair colors that have the words “chocolate”, “honey” or “warm” in them. You want a hair color that is rich and warm to avoid making you look washed out. If you have warm skin tone, you may want to choose hair colors that have the words “ash” or “cool” in their titles. Hair colors in a cool tone will complement your warm skin tone.

When looking for a hair color that will flatter your complexion, look for a shade that is opposite from your skin’s undertone.

Eye color

One of the most important things to consider when choosing a hair color is your facial features – your eyes most especially. If your hair and eye color does not match, it could be a giant disaster.

If you have grey or blue eyes, cool shades work best for you. Try ash blond or light golden blonde. If you have hazel or brown eyes, go for darker shades of brown. Try a rich espresso brown or a chocolate brown.  


Sometimes, you can tell whether or not a person has dyed his/her hair through their eyebrows. For a more natural look, opt for a shade that suits the natural color of your eyebrows. Choose a hair color that is two shades darker or lighter than your eyebrows.
