What Hair Colour is for you?

 By: Alistair Summers
If you're deciding to colour your hair, you should always put in some consideration first. It's always recommended that having your hair done professionally is a better option as (let's face it) they probably know what they're doing better than you do. Of course this can be very expensive so if you are committed to a DIY effort then here is a bit of advice on how to avoid disaster.

The first rule of thumb is that the colour on the box is not necessarily what the end product will look like. Everyone's hair is different and your natural colour will play a part in how it comes out. It's vitally important that you don't go more than a couple of shades away from your original colour. Otherwise you will probably end up paying for a trip to the hairdressers anyway.

The way you can determine what colour to go for is based on your skin tone. Dark, Olive and Pale skin tones are suited to very different colours so pick one to suit you.

If for example you are planning on dying your hair dark or black consider how this will match up with your skin tone. Those with darker skin can more easily get away with darker colours as pale complexions can become washed out in contrast to dark hair. If you have a very dark skin tone then you should probably not go for blue/black as this extreme colour can also wash out your complexion.

Red colouring is very different in that there are shades available to suit almost anyone. It's simply a matter of choosing the right one. For a first time effort avoid going for extreme reds as this can easily end in disaster. Darker plum colours might be subtle but can have a great effect. If you're feeling bolder then deep scarlet colours can look very sexy. While everyone can get a bit of red, generally those who pull it off best have quite pale complexions. The vividness of the red brings out the pink in their complexion giving them a radiant look without needing foundation.

Whichever way you want to go with your hair colouring it's important first and foremost to take care of your hair. Conditioners like Aussie Conditioner will keep your hair looking vibrant while Nicky Clarke hair products can add that finishing touch.

Just remember to get some advice before you dive in to colouring your hair so you can avoid the same disasters that others have had.

There have always been stereotypes associated with hair colour. The most obvious of course being that blondes have more fun but aren't smart enough to realize it. Aside from that the most common consensus is that blondes are sexy, redheads are hot headed and brunettes are good girls. I'm sure most of us can dispel these stereotypes with a few examples of girls we know. I happen to know a few brunettes who certainly don't fit the bill.
