There comes a time in your natural hair journey where you just want to switch up your look. Some of us opt for a cool haircut, while others dive into the world of hair color. For the later, this can be a serious decision. Dying your hair is a big change, not just for your look, but also for the feel of your hair. Here are some important things to know about coloring your curls.
Regardless of your skin color, any color can be for you. It’s all about color tones. The first thing you should pay attention to is your skin. Everyone’s skin has undertones, whether they be pink, yellow, red, or olive. You want to choose a color that won’t wash out the natural colors in your face, but enhance them instead. As a rule of thumb, go with opposites. If your skin is warm toned (pink, red) go with a cooler color; if it’s cool-toned (olive, yellow) warmer colors will be better. Looking at photos of people with your skin tone and the color that you’re going for is also a big help!
