Have you ever wondered why women look great in their hair colour?
Some guests like to choose colour that makes them stand out in a crowd, while others will choose something that is long lasting or more classic. Either way hair colour can make you feel like you had a good change. Guests that visit the salon will often ask the stylist what colours look good on them? This is a great question to ask and a conversation we love having because there are so many colour choices and not all are a match for your skin. Here are descriptions to bring out some of your best features.
Spring Colour Category:
Complexion: The skin is light and clear and has a golden yellow or peach tone. Many spring types blush easily, and they tend to have freckles.
Eye Colour: The eyes are light-colored from light blue to green. Quite often, golden spots enliven the iris.
Hair Colour: The hair is usually blonde. However, some spring types may be dark-haired or have red hair.
Hair Colours for the Spring Type: Nature puts a golden sheen into the hair of spring types. You should therefore avoid ashen tones and choose warm colors instead. Ideal options are golden blonde, flaxen, honey blonde, golden brown, copper, warm light reddish tones like golden red or strawberry blonde. Warm light to medium brown tones also work well. Make sure that the hair color is not too dark. The dramatic look only suits cool skin types.
Summer Colour Category:
The summer type has a tender rosy skin with a bluish to violet hue (undertone).
Eye Colour: The eyes are blue, bluish green, gray-blue or green. Some summer types also have brown eyes with glints of blue, gray or green.
Hair Colour: The natural hair color of summer types is blonde or brunette. The ashen base color can sometimes look a little dull.
Hair Colours for the Summer Type: Silvery or platinum blonde colours add dazzling highlights to hair, which needs a little more radiance. One or two shades darker lowlights also create a livelier picture.
In case you decide to tint or colour your hair, ash blonde, ash brown or platinum blonde are your colours. Red hair colour for summer types should have a bluish hue like Bordeaux or mauve. You should avoid red hair colour with a mahogany, copper or golden blonde tinge because these colours would add years to your face.
Fall Colour Category:
Complexion: The skin colour may be quite light even though it appeals with a deep bronze tone. In any case, the skin has a yellowish golden hue. Autumn skin frequently shows some freckles. This skin type is not so common even though it is seen in people of African, Asian or Southern European descent.
Eye Colour: The eye colour shines in all shades of green, blue and turquois. On rare occasion you also see light blue eyes.
Hair Colour: The hair may be dark brown with reddish hues or red in shades from copper to mahogany.
Hair Colours for the Autumn Type: Accentuate your hair colour with warm red and copper tones. All warm brown tones like golden brown, coppery gold or chestnut are also flattering. If you really want to colour you hair blonde you should reach for golden blonde shades. Ash blonde colours do not suit the autumn-type skin. A clever alternative are golden blonde or coppery red highlights. Blonde highlights are however not very popular because they look artificial.
Winter Colour Category:
Complexion: The skin may be very light. Sometimes, you may notice the faint greenish hues of blood vessels. In any case, winter skin shows cool bluish undertones. Word-wide, winter-type skin is particularly common. Many people of African, Asian and Southern European descent are part of this group.
Eye Colour: The dark brown, gray, ice-blue or intensely green eye colour clearly contrasts with the white of the eyes.
Hair Colour: The natural hair colour is black to bluish black or dark to medium brown.
Hair Colours for the Winter Type: The rich tones of winter-type hair naturally radiates warmth. Therefore, it rarely needs anything but the occasional conditioning rinse for more lustre. However, if you want to emphasise your natural hair colour you could enhance it by giving it a bluish-black gloss. Aubergine and mahogany hair colour accentuates dark hair. Colour treatments in your own natural hair colour highlight the natural beauty of your hair and add more shine.
Lightening winter-type hair often leads to awkward reddish tones, which do not suit your type. Do not consider highlights either because they also tend to look reddish after lightening and make you look older. If you still want to color your hair you should use ash tones. Avoid yellowish golden shades of hair color because they detract from the radiance of your skin.
