Picking a new colour for your tresses? Here’s how to


Since it’s easy for women get bored with almost everything (read: hairstyle, wardrobe, footwear collection, bags), they love makeovers. And talking about makeovers, what better way to look different and edgy than changing your hair colour? Simple as this may sound, you need to consider quite a few things before you choose a hair colour, so that you get the look you desire. Here are a few basic things to remember.

#1 Your skin tone
The most obvious consideration has to be your complexion. Additionally, it is vital to also consider the shades that you use for your regular make-up, if you’re more into smokey eyes, or a natural, dewy look. Women who use shades of subtle pinks, browns and reds regularly always look nice in blonde highlights, natural browns, medium reds or caramel colours. Whereas women with a more dusky complexion may want to experiment with a single or double streak of dark red or brown like mahogany, toffee, maple brown and other warm shades.

#2 Professional commitments, if any
Believe it or not, but your profession has a lot to do with the hair colour you go for. Even though hair trends like pastel, rainbow and candy floss hair have been the rage lately, these colours hardly say boardroom meetings. You wouldn’t want to scare your colleagues, or clients away with vibrant pink hair. Such eccentric hair colours can be inappropriate in environments that require especial discipline, like educational institutes, as well. So, keep your professional activities, your boss and your office culture in mind while choosing the shade.

#3 Your personality
A lot of women are very conscious of their dressing, how they look and what it conveys about them. If you feel so too, then you must choose a hair colour that complements your personality, because if you are going to be nervous all the time, then you can’t carry anything well with confidence. If you love sporting an edgy look, you could opt for strong contrasts to your natural colour and if you like to keep it simple, then go in for subtle highlights and natural shades.

#4 Hair texture
If you have frizzy hair, do not go for contrasting highlights or blonde colours. They are bound to put the spotlight on your frizzy ends. If you have nice, thick curls, going in for very dark and contrasting shades to your natural colour, as that will add to the bounce in your hair and make them look voluminous. On the other hand, going in for similar colours will make them look messy. So, consult your hairstylist to know more about your hair texture and the kind of style you want to keep your hair in before taking the plunge.

#5 Quality of care your locks receive
Anything which is not natural has the scope of enduring a little damage, if not huge. When getting your hair coloured, if you think you bathe with hard water and cannot do much about it, try sticking to colours that match your natural hair colour. The more you go away from those shades, the more evident it will be for others to see the colour wearing off after a little time.

#6 Word for first timers
If this is your first time experimenting with hair colours, then do not go for permanent colouring. Stick to a semi-permanent colour. Other than this, it is best to follow this rule of thumb: always go only two to three shades away from your natural colour, not more than that. Keep these tips in mind while you are finalising a colour for your hair to make a safe choice and look stunning at that!
