Hair Coloring Secrets

Adding highlights or color to hair can brighten your whole face. Here are some foolproof hints for beautiful color:

*Women with pink skin tones should use ash tones to neutralize and complement coloring. Avoid shades of red or golden blonde.

*If you have very light skin, try shades such as burgundy or very dark brown. Dark, rich shades highlight very pale skin tones.

*To brighten your complexion, apply subtle highlights around face and bangs.

*Dark-complected women should use colors similar to their natural skin tone.

* When highlighting for the first time, visit a professional stylist. The stylist will help you pick a color that looks natural.

Don't be afraid to try a new look. Follow these suggestions for brighter, beautifully colored hair.
