Hi! So my hair is a naturally ashy brownish blond color, I have been using box dye for about a year because of budget cuts. I want an exciting change, my hair is currently a dark brown, but as the color fades my hair takes to red very well, so it fades to an almost coppery chestnut color. I have a diamond shape face, and my complexion... I have freckles, but I am not fair skinned, more of yellow undertones than pink and I have light eyes that are blue green. I have always been tempted to do a red color (such as Kate Walsh's red), but have always been sketchy. What would the best hair color be for my skin type and what would be a fun way to spice it up from the usual brown so that I have a new kick to start the new year?! Thank you! Kelli

Hi Kelli, it sounds like you have a cool complexion (olive, slightly beige with yellow undertones) so any hair color that has a cool overtone will suit you. Examples of cool hair colors for you are ash browns and blondes, copper reds, light blondes (think platinum and strawberry blonde) or anything from a dark to a light violet if you're after something different. If you really want to know what will suit you then I recommended visiting a professional colorist who can confirm your skin tone in person and discuss with you the types of colors that will suit you. Good luck! Kind regards, Serah Schuster - THS Hair Consultant.
