If you change your hair from a lighter shade to a darker one beware because you can easily go wrong and end up looking terrible. I have a friend and (I havenâ€™t told her this), but she recently changed her hair color from blonde to dark chestnut brown hair, and itâ€™s made her look all pale and sicklyâ€” kind of like the walking dead.
So to prevent that happening to you, take a leaf out of Ashley Tisdaleâ€™s book and make your new hair color work for you. There are a few things you should bear in mind if youâ€™re planning on changing your hair color from light to dark and to make it easier Iâ€™ve listed 5 "Donâ€™t Look Like Death" Hair Color Tips below.
5 â€œDonâ€™t Look Like Deathâ€ Hair Color Tips:
- Probably the most important thing to think about is whether your new hair color will suit your skin tone/complexion and eye color. To find out, talk with your stylist and try our hair consultation.
- Think about whether your new hair color will be too harsh; in other words, does your hair color complement your current wardrobe, or does it stick out like a sore thumb? (Dark hair and dark colored clothes can clash.)
- Another big factor is whether or not your new shade will make you look youthful; for example on some complexions dark hair can draw attention to acne scarring, dry skin and other skin ailments.
- Think about the level of sophistication youâ€™d like to achieve with your hair color. Often dark hair is considered to appear more sophisticated. Try a little touch of blue black all over or in highlights for extra shine and mystery.
- If youâ€™re going dark youâ€™ll probably need to put a hair color filler in your hair first. This is a red pigment that holds dark colors and stops the hair looking green or ash.
Like any hairstyle change, going from a dark to light hair color requires a little bit of extra thoughtâ€” â€˜cos you donâ€™t want to look terrible after your makeover. Think about these tips, and most importantly, talk to your hairstylist too.
