Hair Color/Styles 101

Choosing the right hair color and cut can be a difficult and stressful situation. You ask yourself questions like will I be able to pull off blonde hair with bangs? Will I look like a mole person if I dye my hair back to it’s original color? The answer is simple; you need to go with a color that matches your skin tone and accents your sparkling eyes.

I found a really helpful link on that helps you find your perfect hair color according to your skin tone. In the article it also mentions that eyes are a big key to finding the perfect hair color as well.

The article states, ‘“The color of the eyes is another indicator,”’ says Garrison. If your eyes are deep brown, black-brown, gray blue, dark blue or hazel with white, gray or blue flecks you look best with cool tones in your hair. However, if your eyes are golden brown, green, turquoise or hazel with gold or brown flecks you will look best with warm tones in your hair.”

Now to choosing the right hairstyle. It all has to do with your face shape. I found another website that helps you determine your face shape and then gives you examples of which hairstyle you could rock the socks out of.

I for one have paler skin with pink undertones and have a mixture between a round and square face shape. In the picture above is my current hair style but I’ve been blonde, brown, red, and I even had an ombre one time. It’s hard to tell but I also have a blue streak in my hair, it’s in the underneath part of my hair. I’m a rebel what can I say? I like that the color I have makes me look tanner without me having to actually get into a scary tanning bed (don’t watch one of the 294763 Final Destination movies if you’re scared of tanning beds, it’ll mess you up real good). Some hair colors will fortunately give you a lucky glow like that.

And yes, that is my puppy brother Chico who passed out from boredom during that photo shoot.

Rock whatever color you want though is the main point. If you want neon purple hair and some short Beyonce bangs, do you boo boo. Do what makes you feel comfortable because you’re beautiful no matter what you do to your hair. Also, don’t be one of those scary people that are obsessed with their long luxurious hair, it is just hair and it will grow back. Experimentation can be fun! If you do have long hair though and you’re wanting to cut a lot of it off I strongly recommend donating to Locks of Love. It’s one of my ultimate goals to one day do that. I’ll provide the link below.

I hope this helped you out in determining the perfect hair color/style for you. Until next time, have a fabulous day!
