Doing Hair Color the Right Way
There's nothing wrong with wanting to mix things up with your hair color - unless you get the wrong color or dye it badly. Here are some tips for making sure your dye job makes the right kind of splash.
First, it's important to make sure you pick the right color for your skin tone. Not all blonds or browns are created equal, and red is something that you really have to do right.
If you were born with blond hair and your hair just got darker over the years, you'll still probably be able to pull off blond now. People with rosier skin tones should be fine with blond as long as they don't go strawberry blond. People with more gold tones in their skin (or with sallow/yellow toned skin) should stay away from gold shades of blond (and since it's trickier to get the right color, it's a good idea to go to find out.) It should also be noted that going from brown to blond is tricky. We've all seen people who have bad blond dye jobs - it's a good idea to go to a stylist to make sure that your blond comes off classy and not cheap. (Unless you're going for cheap. Then by all just bleach it yourself.)
If your hair is brown and your skin is pale, you may want to pick a lighter shade rather than a dark shade. If you get into really dark shades, it can look unnatural and even make you look old. You should be especially careful if you have a warm skin tone, as going too dark will wash you out.
Red is not as hard to pull off as you might think, but you should make sure to pick the right shade. Talk to a professional or look at pictures of people with red hair and decide how people with similar coloring to yours are pulling off their shades. A good rule of thumb is not to go more than 2 shades darker or lighter than your natural hair color (or at least not to do that on your own). An extreme change is a lot more likely to result in a bad dye job. If you're coloring your hair yourself out of a box, use something semi-permanent rather than permanent. This will gradually wash out or fade out instead of needing to grow out. After you dye your hair, it's a good idea to use color-care products like L'Oreal Color Vive shampoo to make it last longer and to keep your hair healthy, as the chemicals in dying products can make your hair more fragile.
