How to Choose a Hair Color for Spring and Summer 2022As we shake off the winter blues in order to embrace the warmth and fun of the spring and summer seasons, it may be time to change up your look or to spend a little more time on your hair. A new hair color may be just the ticket to a brand-new look! When it comes to choosing a new hair color, there are many considerations you should make, including your skin tone and the overall look of your features as well as what is on-trend for the year. If you’re stuck thinking of how you could change up your hair color with semi-permanent hair dyes at home, here is how to determine your best hair color, and some of the best trends to try.
How to Choose a New Hair ColorWhen you are choosing a new hair color to try, there are a few questions you should ask yourself in order to determine which will look best on you. The first step you should take is to get a good look at what your skin undertones are. Determining if you have warm, cool, or neutral undertones is a snap, according to Byrdie, and you can use a few different methods. One of the most popular ways to determine undertones is by looking at the color of your veins. If they are blue, you have cool undertones, while green would indicate warm. A mixture would indicate that you have neutral undertones.
After you determine your undertones, you can select a hair color based on this information. A cooler toned hair color would look best for cool toned skin, while warmer would look best on warmer. Whether you go bold with a bright neon or pastel, or you keep it safe with a natural hair color, your undertones will be a great guide to selecting a hue that will flatter you.
Moving from Dark Hair to Light and Vice Versa
Whether you have decided on a color lighter than your current hair color or darker, there is one hard and fast rule for dyeing your hair if you want it to look natural. That rule is to make sure that your new hair color is only two tones away from your current or natural hair color. By not making too drastic a change, your new hair color will look as natural as possible.
Of course, if you want to go bold and try a trendy colorful hair dye, this rule won’t apply. The Lunar Tides Hair Dye line from Medusa’s Makeup is a one-stop shop for cruelty free and vegan hair dyes that won’t break the bank and will definitely make a splash when it comes to your appearance.
