1. Hair Coloring – The 3 Features of Good Hair Colors


Sometimes you may not like your new hair color and unfortunately your hair colorist did not give you the perfect color. It usually happens when a colorist does not take proper precautions to help you choose the right color. Whether your hair is color treated or color treated with chemicals, there are some things you need to consider when coloring your hair. Below are some of the important features of good hair colors.

One: Matching Chemical Colors

When you go to the hair salon to get your hair colored, always ask your stylist to explain the chemical choices. What does it mean? As a professional hair stylist, he or she should be able to help you pick the right hair color that will best work for you. Chemical colors come in categories of: temporary, semi-permanent, demi-permanent, and permanent. Each one of these colors has unique benefits. The temporary ones are often shades that require no extra work-you can just apply, go home, and forget about it. The semi-permanent are usually shades that require a hair salon application. demi-permanent colors come out so naturally that it is nearly impossible to tell that you are coloring your hair. Each season, you can use the semi-permanent colors to enhance your natural hair color and choose a tone that is completely different from your natural hair color. If you are a brunette, demi-permanent bronzers will work great for you. It adds dimension and adds highlights to compliment the lighter shades. If you are blond, permanent highlights will work great for you too, but be careful, the colors will turn out to be too bright. The final tip is that, never use a color that is too light or it will give you golden highlights and sunburn.

2: Choosing the Right Shade

When picking the right shade for you, you have two options: natural or subtle. With a natural shade, you will simply choose the one that most closely resembles your natural hair color. The subtle shades are always more fun, daring, and artistic. To find the right subtle shade for you, simply choose any color that is lighter than your natural shade. As a rule of thumb, if your natural hair color is blonds, you should choose blond shades.

With a subtle shade, you can easily wear red, brown, blond, or gray. The key is to pick a shade that is complimentary to your eye color. For example, if you are a brunette, you can wear a subtle red.

3: Highlights or lowlights

The final step is applying highlights or lowlights to your hair. This is where choosing the right color shades becomes very important. Highlights are usually shades of blond or auburn. However, to be effective, they need to be added by a professional. Lowlights are usually shades of brown or pure black. By choosing the wrong color, you may look dull or sick especially if you have an eye color such as green.

For Different Hair Colors

Now that you know how to pick the right hair color for you, the next step is learning how to choose the right color highlights and lowlights. As mentioned earlier, there are different color types. There are types of blond hair colors, brunette hair colors, honeysuckle hair colors, and black hair colors. Then there are also violet colors, blue gray hair colors, lavender hair colors, and golden brown hair colors.

Now that you know how to choose the right color highlights and lowlights, you will be able to look sexy, smart, and sexy all season long. The choices are never limited to those who have ‘fuchsia blonde’ or blond hair. With so many options, you can find the perfect color to enhance your beauty and give your hair that gorgeous look you have always dreamt of.
