Will the color look harsh on me? If you choose a hair color that is natural looking, it will not look harsh on you. For example: If you are young, and want to enhance your own hair color. Your stylist will choose a color very similar to what you already have. Younger people can get away with more drastic changes in their hair color because they generally have vibrant skin tones. Although, if a young person chooses a black color for instance, and their hair color is not naturally black, this can sometimes be very harsh looking on them also .

The most common problem seen with hair coloring at home and in salons is choosing a color that is too light for the natural shade of your locks. Realistically, color can only lighten hair beautifully by a few shades. If you go any lighter than a few shades, you need to choose a high-lift product such as bleach or a professional highlighting system. Failure to do this often results in hair color that is much too brassy or even orange.

Hair consists of a shaft, which we see, and its root, which is below the skin in a follicle (little pit). The shaft is dead. The living part is the follicle and the few cells just emerging from it at the base of the shaft. This is how the hair grows, by cells at its base subdividing, pushing upwards, hardening and developing pigment. Typically, each of our hairs grows at about ½ inch per month and lives anywhere from 3 to 5 years .

Selecting the best shade or highlights depends on various factors. It completely depends on facial shape, complexion, haircut, facial expression, eye color, hair length, as well as personal taste. These colors can be various shades and intensity. Depending on intensity or tone colors can be warm or cool. Warm tones are shades of oranges, reds and yellows and cool tones are shades of blues, violets and greens. People who are cool should not use warm tones because that might lower down their features. The best shades for cool people are purple orchid hues, burgundy and lipstick red. People who are warm by nature should preferably use simple gold highlights and golden blondes. Cool tones suit the people with olive complexion and a medium complexion with no pink to a faint pink at the cheeks .
