Hair Coloring Tips
Adding color to your hair is a great way to change your look up and give your hair a new life. There are literally hundreds, if not thousands of hair color options to consider. You can go for basic blonde, brown, red or black or you can play with different color options to give your hair a unique color and effect.
Highlighting is also a great way to add subtle shades of color to your hair and they look amazing when hit by the light. The great thing about highlights is they add depth and definition without changing your natural color profile too much.
Before changing your hair color, there are a few options you should consider:
Know what you want
Before coloring your hair, decide on the end result. For example, do you simply want to liven up your look, have a drastic change, cover up gray or just add some depth to your hair? Knowing what you want will help you and your stylist decide on the perfect color treatment for you.
Choose a hair color that suits you
Before you dye your locks, play with different color wigs and see how the color looks on you. When you've found a shade that compliments your skin tone and you love it, you can go ahead and take the more permanent route with hair dye.
Book an appointment with your hairdresser
Although it is possible to dye your own hair, it is always better to leave it to the professionals. Hairdressers are trained in color application and a reputable stylist or salon will get the job done properly, with the right color, tools and appropriate after-coloring treatment to ensure the health and vitality of your hair.
If you're going lighter, don't go too light
If your hair is very dark, don't expect to go platinum blonde after only one treatment. Also, don't expect a simple, once-off visit to the hairdresser. Dying your hair lighter than its natural shade takes a lot of maintenance and upkeep, not to mention a lot of time and money. Be sure to consider all these factors before you go for blonde.
If you want to go lighter, but aren't prepared to put up with all the maintenance and upkeep, don't color your hair more than three shades lighter than its natural shade. This way you can lighten your hair without breaking your piggy bank.
