What will suit you?
Hair color in nut shell....
Generally people are suited to warm colors or cool colors. The easiest way to determined which one you are, all you have to do is get a brown and a blue top or towel and place it over your shoulders.
Which one brings out your features? If it's the brown you're best suited to warm colors, if it's blue then your best suited to cool colors.
In regards to how light or dark to go. Ask herself this:Realistically how often can you maintain it? 3 weeks, 4 weeks, 6 weeks, 8 weeks or longer.
What I'm saying is if you're dark naturally don't go Blonde if you're only prepared to get it colored every 6 to 8 weeks plus.
Ask your colorist their recommendations and put the color samples up against your face to give you a visual as to what is best.
Hair Colors are graded from 1 to 10. 1 being Black and 10 being Platinum Blonde that is just how light or dark it is. To determine the shade that is different again this is where we use a color chart the same one you'll see in a paint shop!
Only colorist's don't have the easy task of everything going on a white canvas, the color you see is the color you get.
You have to take into consideration what shade are you now and what shade does your hair reflect naturally? Then you have to counteract accordingly. Not as easy as it looks!
My advice: Let the professionals do it.
