Considerations Before Choosing a Hair Color

  • Skin Tone: Lighter skin often pairs well with cooler colors, while warmer colors may suit darker skin tones.
  • Eye Color: Your eye color can be a great indicator of what hair colors may look best on you.
  • Previous Hair Treatments: Some hair colors may not be compatible with previous chemical treatments.
  • Hair Health: Always perform a strand test to make sure your hair can handle the coloring process.
