Choosing The Perfect Hair Colour

So, you fancy colouring your hair and trying out a new colour? Exciting stuff! BUT, choosing the right hair colour might not be as easy as you think. It’s not as easy as seeing a colour you like and asking the hair colourist in Sawtry to make your hair that colour. Instead, there are factors you need to consider when choosing the perfect hair colour.

For example you need to think about your complexion, clothing colours, time of the year, current hair condition and more. In this blog post we look at some of the factors that you need to consider when choosing the perfect hair colour.

Match You Hair and Skin Tone

When choosing the perfect hair colour you want to compliment your hair colour to your skin tone. For example, if you have a pink complexion and lighter skin then a warmer hair colour will work beautifully with your skin tone. However, if you have more olive skin, why not opt for a lighter hair colour? We wouldn’t recommend you go more than 2 steps lighter or darker that your current hair colour, so you have a happy medium. Unless you are feeling really brave and want to make a real impact!

The Impacts

Different hair colours will have different impacts on your hair. For example, if you have dark coloured hair it can look thicker and fuller. However lighter hair colours will accentuate textures and layers in your hair. Think about the colour of your hair with your new haircut or style as well. Would you like a single colour all over, or different shades to give your new hair dimensions?

Hair Condition

If you have weak or brittle hair we would recommend that you avoid any big colour changes as this can further damage your hair. When you colour your hair to a lighter shade you are stripping the pigment from your hair. We would recommend that if you have weak or damaged hair you go just one shade darker or lighter than your current hair colour.

Your Personality

Your hair colour is about you. You will be the person that sees it the most and you know the reaction you want from people when they see it. If you want to choose a colour that stands out then go for it, don’t be afraid of judgement because if you love the colour you will look fabulous and confident with it anyway. The perfect hair colour will leave you feeling happier and more confident in yourself.

Remember Your Age

As you age we recommend that you opt for lighter hair colours. Our skin ages over the years and we are more likely to get grey hairs. Lighter colours hide these greys better than darker colours that can make the greys look more prominent. Choosing a lighter hair colour will also reflect your skin tone perfectly, creating soft looking skin.
