Finding the Right Color

Choosing a new hair color that compliments your skin tone can be a bit tricky. You want to find the right color that will enhance your eyes and skin tone. The right hair color can compliment your eyes and brighten your face. A particular color may look great on someone else, but you might find that it doesn’t work well for you because of your different skin tones.

For warm tones, colors with bases or red, red-orange, orange, yellow, and gold work best. For cool tones, colors with bases of blue, blue-violet, violet, green, and neutral work the best. Also, remember that staying within a few shades on the color spectrum of your natural shade looks the most natural. If you want a drastic color change, it is best to do it in stages, perhaps with highlights/lowlights added.

Before adding any color, our stylists perform a consultation to determine which colors will work best with your skin tone and eye color. Your stylist will discover your needs and offer solutions to best complete your request. There are many different options for coloring your hair, depending on the desired result for color tone, intensity, and level. Depending on which hair color system used will also depend on your commitment – how often you can return to the salon to best maintain your hair color.
