How To Choose The Best Color for Your Hair

The color that looks stunning on your dark-haired best friend may not look as flattering on your light auburn tresses. When looking to add a temporary bold color to your hair keep a few things in mind:

Blonde Hair:

Temporary tints vividly color shades of blonde — the lighter your blonde, the brighter the color may appear. Lower the level of “bold” by opting for tinted highlights, like the peek-a-boo technique for just a pop of color. If your complexion is cooler, consider tints in blues and purples , while warmer complexions can rock the reds, pinks and oranges.

Red Hair:

Shades of red and auburn look best in contemporary colors that play to their natural color’s strengths. Opt for pinks and purples but avoid oranges, which can make your hair look brassy. Look to enhance your shade of red with the right temporary tint for a standout look. 

Brunette Hair:

If your hair is any shade of brown or black, a hair tint naturally won’t appear as vivid as it does on lighter hair colors. However, it will create a stunning jewel-tone look that’s chic and unforgettable. Shades of red and pink temporary tint will stand out best in darker hair, while greens, blues and purples  will have a more subtle effect.
