We all know that Asian women usually have black to dark brown hair. Of course it is advisable that we stick to our original hair color but then, coloring tresses is now considered a trend. That’s why most women nowadays explore the beauty of hair coloring. You must be careful in choosing your hair color though for it can have a big effect on your over-all look. So here are some tips on picking the right hue.
If you are a low-maintenance kind of woman, it is better that you stick to your original hair color or opt for something dark such as brown. Dark hair reflects light best so hair damage such as breakage and split-ends won’t be as obvious. Brunettes don’t need much hair treatments since their hair don’t usually look dry and brittle. However, it is advised that you stay away from hairspray and go for hair serum to make it look shiny and healthy.
If you really want another color though, check your skin tone first. Skin tones can be cool or warm . Expose your arm in the sun and look at the veins. If the veins appear green, then you have a warm skin tone. If it appears blue, then you have a cool complexion.
If you have a COOL complexion, the following colors can look good on you:
Jet Black: Jet black hair is one of the most striking colors, and it typically works best on darker skin tones, unless of course you’re going for a real statement. In that case, lighter skin tones can make jet black work, too. Steer clear of the black hair color with blue undertones, though, as it can make you look sickly, especially if you have blue undertones in your face.
- Dark Golden Brown: Deeper skin tones or olive skin tones can go for a dark golden brown, which has just subtle hints of a warm honey gold in the brown color range.
Make sure that when you decide to have these colors, intense care must be maintained. Avoid sun exposure and harsh shampoos to lengthen the radiance of this color. Hot oil and treatments are a must to maintain the shine, while blow-drying is something to be avoided.
Be prepared to sit for long hours in the salon and endure a bit of pain when you opt for something light such as blonde. It is because to be able to lighten your naturally dark hair, bleaching must be done. Keep in mind that light colors need high-maintenance. You will need regular touch ups to avoid dark roots. You will also need regular hair treatments for you will be prone to dry hair.
