What Color Should I Be?

When I first got it cut

When I first got it cut

So I recently cut my hair into this short little pixie cut, which I LOVE, but now I'm kind of bored with the color and want something different. I am open to red, lighter blonde, or even a light brunette. I've never been red before and kind of want to try it, but am afraid that it'll bring the pink out in my skin too much. Any suggestions??

I actually quite like your colour but if you want to change i think you could try mahogany which is softer. As you said red might bring out the pink in your skin tone.

Also if you considers chesnut with a few highlights (on top only)of deep red ,cooper or strawberry blonde to get a bit contrast and enhance your haircut,would be nice.....think about it and ask your stylist for opinion

Red

Yes. Go red! But get a berry red, a red with pink undertones

Nice
by: Karina

Well this is something that you should do as a trial and error form of experimentation. It would be always better that you do strands of your hair first and see how the color actually goes along with your hair and then later on do it fully. Beverly Diamonds Reviews

Few suggestions
by: N.F.

How about something like Amy Adams red with golden brown. Fairly light perhaps?! OR something like Isla Fisher's red brown but darker (I really like that one). You can also go rich dark brown with red highlights peeking through like Jessica's hair. Will they work?

Give it a little boost

You can add some dark chocolate brown lowlight into your current color. And ask your stylist for color fresh treatment to give your color new shine. That will change your look without making drastic changes.

Need advice to choose a better hair color

by Anasheh

Please help me to choose a better hair color for my hair. I now have a shorter hair below my ears.

Choose a better hair color


By: Flo Briggs
You are a very pretty girl and you can look good with almost any color. I do agree that the color you have now is not your best look. You have many choices, I will give you some of them. You could bleach your whole hair and make it Marilyn Monroe blonde color. You will look stunning and especially if you style it wavy.

Another choice will be to lightening your roots a few shades and make your hair a medium gold blonde and then do panels of red and light blonde only around the face. Or color your whole hair dark brown and do panels of bright red.

You must choose a high-end salon to do this job; otherwise the color change could be a disaster and always remember you pay for what you get. GO DO IT, I wish you the best!

look alike!



Your face reminds me of Leighton Meester! You're stunning :) - Her hair looks great in this colour but she has also lightened it and was able to pull it off.

Good luck choosing!

What hair colour is best for me
by: Anonymous

I'm golden brown and my eyes are dark brown
I have red undertones in my skin.
I have short bob hair and starting to get grey this year.
My hair color has always been champaign blonde.

But my grey is starting to come around the edges. And in. The long strains on top.

I need to tone it down a bit now.

What would be a good colour

Blonde level 10
by: Anonymous

I like your short pink hair. Its very cute. With your skin tone you have many choices in blond. I think Level 10 light gold blond most likely suits your needs.

Once your summer fun ended, you can start adding lowlights in level 8 and move gradually toward your natural brown colour for Autumn or get ready for some other exciting winter shades close to your own base colour.

If your eyebrows are a dark color keep your hair dark and add some highlights and layer to spicen you up!

Would I, suit blonde hair
by: felicia

Yes I, see your picture you have nice rosy undertones and a nice light blonde would look fantastic with your blue eyes. You could use a light neutral blonde or even opt for a nice light golden blonde. Remember some golden blondes will pull red tones so if you do not want that avoid golden tones.

I used to use Clairol Hydrience in light golden blonde. It did not get red on me at all and it was very pretty and natural looking.

No matter what you opt for do a strand test. If doing it at home use 1 teaspoon of colorant to either 1 or two teaspoons of developer. Snip a 1/4 inch piece of hair from an unnoticeable spot in your hair (close as possible to the scalp). Wrap the strand with tape and put mixture in glass bowl. Mix with plastic spoon (never any metal). Wait amount of time it states for a full head application. Pull the strand out, rinse then blot dry and preview your strand. This will help you see what you get so you do not get any unwanted color or tones. Call company to be sure on developer and colorant mixture amounts for a strand test as some companies products vary.

What hair colour suits me? - Help!

by Natalie
(England)

Could anybody tell me what hair colour I would suit? My original colour is a rather mousy brown but I want something a bit more interesting...hence the reason I went blonde.

However I'm not sure if I'm now a bit too blonde and should go back a darker brown. Plus...I'm a student and the upkeep of highlights can be quite expensive. Any advice at all would be helpful! Thanks

Brown hair with few highlights
by:

The simplest is to choose a shade close to your natural base colour to avoid noticeable regrowth when you can't afford the upkeep. You can also choose t-section highlight instead of whole head which will be more expensive to maintain. With t-section, you cover the top and sides, framing your face and giving it a lift. I think you should aim for result of having brown hair with some easy to maintain highlights.

Want new color and style - what do you suggest?

by Pam Hesse

Dark ash brown hair color

Dark ash brown hair color

I want blond highlights, but at the salon, the highlights turn out looking grey. You can see my natural color is dark ash brown, almost black. The highlights you see in the photo are natural gray and my hair is very straight.

I need a makeover with hairstyle and color, something more youthful. I'm 58. Any suggestions?



Soft look with lowlight highlight
by: N.F.


You will look great with highlight. The best color solution for you is to have a mix of lowlight highlight effect. With 5/1 (light ash brown) as base color and 8/1 (light ash-blonde) as highlight. This will create a natural look with a nice transition from your base color which is dark to light. Any lighter than level 8 could create too much contrast and I really don't recommend it.

Your stylist can place the colors in a way that blends nicely with your natural hair color even when the roots start to show after couple of weeks. You still need to touch-up, but it wouldn't be that obvious with this method.

I also think you should change your stylist or ask your salon for a more experienced colorist/stylist to color your hair, because your highlight shouldn't turn grey after color application.

White (grey) hair is normally a little coarser in compare to naturally pigmented hair and sometimes very resistance to hair coloring and this often create problem. If stylist not take this into consideration while preparing the color application, the resulting color could look faded and you still see the ashen grey color underneath. This could be the reason for what you experienced!

I think you look great with short hair.

What hair color, pls, help! - Pale skin with blue eyes

Dark brown with long curly hair

Dark brown with long curly hair

Hello, greetings from sunny Greece! I am so glad I've found this site and I hope that finally someone will help me decide.

I have very pale skin (can't get a tan), blue eyes and dark brown, long curly hair. Should I stick to my natural hair color and enhance it (a bit darker) or should I maybe try auburn?

Here's my picture (my hair is much longer now).

hair color for pale skin with blue eyes
by: Sheryl from USA

I also have a med brown with blue eyes and pale skin. I would never go darker on you, your hair is naturally dark enough...lighter, lighter. I would suggest 2-3 shades lighter highlights, to give you some depth, and 3-4 shades lighter just around your face. I think you can get away with a reddish tone with your skin but it would need to be very very subtle. I'd recommend a lighter brown in same tone as your natural color, and then a wheat or honey throughout with it being heavier near your face. It will make your blue eyes sparkle!

Good Luck! Hope I'm not to late on advice.

Definitely Medium Brown
by: Kristi in Virginia

I agree with the other lady. Medium browns would look great on you. Like you, I have pale skin (ivory) with blue eyes (mine are more of a blue/green color) and my natural color is medium brown. If I was you, I would say a medium reddish brown (but more on the brown side) for you.

If you have a lot of pink in your skin, don't go too red or else it only makes your face look pinker. Hair stylist always mixes a 5B (neutral medium brown) and a 5RB (medium reddish brown) on my hair and it comes out looking great every time. Don't go dark because when you get older and especially with fair skin, it will wash you out. Warm up your complexion a LITTLE bit. Definitely don't go blonde. That will wash you out as well. Hope that helped you that.

Brown?
by: Anonymous

If i were you id try a medium brown with slight bronze tint in as well. The bronze-ish color will enhance your eyes and provide dimension, while the dark-medium brown hair looks natural still

Natural with Shine Enhance
by: N.F.

Greeting from England. You would look great with both colour choices and its a matter of personal preference. I personally think you should enhance your natural hair color with focus of adding more shine, because curly hair normally lack shine. Curly hair also looks great by placing few lowlights around the face and sides to create depth. That will add the illusion of defined curls and make it appear more exciting. Maintenance is minimal because hair growth are not visible.
Keep your curls moisturised at all time and enjoy the sun!

What colour best fit my skin and hair?

What colour best fit to my skin and hair?



Warm colours
by: SHS


You have beautiful warm tan with a slight olive background skin tone. For your style with straight dark short hair in level 4/5, it's best to stay with dark colours, but adding richness and depth with lowlight. With lowlights it's important to create a natural look, so ask for a professional multi-tonal colouring with warm colours ranging from light chocolate to dark coffee and espresso positioned in a way that can accent the haircut. For example lighter shades can be placed random and darker shades can overlap with one another and make a soft transition to your own natural colour.

For that, you also need to choose a different hair style! The best length for your face is below ear with some layers.

My New Hair Color

by Saniya Goriwala
(Thailand)

I really want a new hair color... I like my curly hair, but I need a new hair color to freshen up my look. So please do give me some suggestions. I want my face to look brighter.

Go for some soft highlights


by: Anonymous
I recommend you get some rich natural highlights with medium or light ash blond. Just in T-section from top of your hair is enough to fresh up your look. If you don't like it, it will blend naturally with your current hair color as it grows and you don't have to maintain it. Don't go for any wild colors.

Brighten up your eyes


by: Anonymous
Pick a color to brighten up your eyes. You can try highlights of another brown or blonde. You can also try auburn brown or red. that's what i did, cause i too have curly brown hair.

Sania...looks wow....
by: Anonymous

Well Sania......first of all you've got really beautiful hair...and i would suggest you to go for a slightly silverish colour...and that too very less...of it....get a nice extension...in silver blonde. It shouldn't be reddish..or golden... think that will look awesome.
Good luck.
