Hair is the frame of our face that is why a beautiful, well-kept hairstyle is very important; and the colour even more so. Are you aware how much hair colour affects the beauty of the face? How important it is for it to be consistent with your skin tone and eyebrows? It can make you seem older or just looks to be taken for granted. Of course, there is the matter of the hair stylist: he not only has to be good, he should be a sort of part-time psychologist in order to grasp all the facets of your personality and advises you on the best hairstyle for you and your lifestyle. Mistakes still happen, but it may be easier to avoid them, if you take some time and are familiar with your options in advance.
Don’t exaggerate the red
I am sorry to still see so many orange and red heads, that’s just not the way. For some strange reason, this seems to be the trend with middle aged women, as if all there is left in the world is henna or a wild shade of red. No, it doesn’t suit all women, it actually suits natural redheads best, and they’re a rare find. What you can do is get a coppery or red highlight, but keep the base a chocolate brown, which is much more wearable.
Same colour through-and-through
Lighter ends of your hair make you seem younger, and keep the hairstyle looking natural, flowing and in step with the trends. A monotonous colour ages you, especially black. So always get highlights near the face and let the hair stylist do it professionally (run far away from the store-bought product that promise homemade miracles).
You keep using the same shampoo
The first drawback is that the skin gets used to the product and the second one the fact that every life period requires its own special care, as well as every hair colour its own shampoo. Check out what the market has to offer for your hair colour and find a line that suits your shade; get your hair stylist to help you with some advice.
Going dark in the summer
This is quite a nonsense, because the sun and sea will prevent your colour from lasting longer. Another problem is that the hair will become tired, so if it’s not 100 % necessary (meaning you’re completely grey), don’t colour your hair in the summer; just wait for the days of less sea and salt, which will help the colour last. However, the summer is the ideal time for mild, light highlights … the sun will highlight them additionally and your look will be completely natural.
You don’t change your makeup
This is a big problem: a new hair colour demands a new makeup. Nothing lasts forever, so your makeup also requires certain changes, which should keep up with the hairstyle. Always try to maintain a natural and easy colour scheme, and remember that blondes have their own set of colours, women with black hair theirs and brunettes yet another. Every woman actually has her own palette.
