If you’ve never used hair color before and are wondering where to start, hair color experts will tell you to pick a shade that is one or two shades darker or one or two shades lighter that your own natural shade to be on the safe side. They believe that the color Mother Nature gave you is what really will look best on you. They also believe that a good rule of thumb is to avoid both ends of the spectrum, colors like the deepest blacks or the lightest blondes unless you are very comfortable with your features.

Hair color can damage your hair.

A quote from Oprah’s hairstylist Andre “be sure your hair is in tip-top condition before you color it. If it’s damaged before you put chemicals in it, it’s only going to look that much worse afterward.” A very short hair cut may be your only option.

It is a fact that knowing your skin tone is very
important in helping you choose the perfect
hair color. There are several methods that
may help you to understand which skin tone
you have, Are your skin tones warm or cool?

Is your skin tone warm or cool? One way to tell is to check the color of your veins. If they appear more blue then you have “cool” tones and if they appear more green then you have “warm” tones.

It may also help to compare the veins in your arm to someone else’s.

Jennifer Lopez


Try the “proven method” of cosmetic counters. Try draping 2 scarves next to your face, a blue and an orange. If the blue scarf looks best next to your face, then you have cool tones. If the orange scarf looks best, then you have warm tones.

Be careful that you have your true face color (no makeup or tan) to get the best results.
