A new season means a new hair color. Updating your hair color can help you start the season with a fresh new look and a major confidence upgrade.
Here are a few pro tips for finding your ideal color and achieving a look you'll love.
Learn From Your Past
And no, we're not talking about bad dating experiences!
Have you branched out and tried other hair colors in the past? Learn from your mistakes and triumphs. Look back at photos from over the years to refresh your memory about how different colors looked on you. Sometimes, all it takes is an old social media post to remind you that blonde highlights weren't the best choice or that rich chocolate brown made your blue eyes pop.
Use An App
Yes, there's an app for that! Hair Color is an app that lets you try just about any color your could think of, without making an commitment, other than some space on your iPhone. Just upload a photo of yourself and select a new hair color for a side by side comparison of your current look and potential new look. When you're finished, save the photo and text it to your friends to get a second opinion.
See Real Life Options
If a virtual try-on isn't cutting it, look at your options in real life. Trying on wigs can give you an idea of what you'd look like with a new color and style. If you've been wondering how you'd look with long, glamorous curls or a platinum blonde bob, this is your chance to find out. Be sure to take plenty of pictures to look through later!
Look For Inspiration
Are you meant to be a redhead? Would blonde hair suit your coloring? Is it time to go back to brunette Look for some inspiration to help you narrow down your options. Search for celebrities that share your coloring and features and look for photos of them with different shades.
Salons will often post photo galleries online as well, giving you plenty of pictures to compare. Take your inspiration photos with you to your next hair appointment to share your ideas with your stylist.
Consult Your Stylist
The best way to update your hair is by getting an advice from a pro. Sit down with your stylist to chat about what you're looking for and what colors will work best for you. Your stylist will be able to help you come to a decision and execute your color plan. Make an appointment with the stylists at The Salon by Lora Brown to get started.
