There are no actual rules when it comes to which hair color you should wear. However, understanding the way different colors look on different complexions can help you make the best decision on what color will suit you best. Our personal style is directly related to hair colors we choose for ourselves. With so many colors to choose from the decision becomes difficult to settle on just one color. Lucky for us we have the option of simply buying wigs that come in different colors and styles that will satisfy any color craving we may be having at the moment. Understanding your skin tone and knowing what tones compliment your complexion will lead you towards your next best hair color.
Some of the most popular hair colors we see today are the traditional jet-black, platinum blonde, or pastel colors. If you are thinking of trying a hair trend you’ve seen on your favorite celeb or influencer, the first thing to do is to make some quick comparisons. Ask yourself, “What is my skin tone?” and “What is theirs?”, if you share the same complexion, or close to it, then you’ll know whatever hair color they wear will likely look just as good on you, but if you are pretty much opposite complexions then you would need to adjust the color darker or lighter to get the result you would like. Going darker or lighter essentially means going warmer or cooler with your hair color to help compliment your complexion. Which leads us to understanding what it means to go warmer or cooler.
Blonde is one of the most popular hair colors because of the vast range of tones you can choose from. This is where asking, “what is my skin tone?” becomes most important. Knowing whether to go lighter or darker depends on your complexion and can be the difference between a complimentary color, and a color that washes you out. If you have a warmer complexion stick with red, yellow, and auburn hues and if you have a cooler complexion stick with blue-based and ash tones. An example of a cool tone hair color is displayed here. Another helpful tip is: If you are someone who wants to go with a lighter hair color, having a wig with dark roots will help the color look the most natural, you can see this displayed here.
Most of us are indecisive and have a hard time choosing which hair color to go with. Fortunately, wig wearing is another popular hair trend that allows you to not only save your hair from chemicals, but gives you the flexibility to switch up your hair colors as often as you’d like. If your looking at different wig styles and your eyes catch a style you like you can almost always find that style in the color you want.
