HAVING TROUBLE DECIDING WHETHER TO GO DARKER OR LIGHTER?
Here's some tips that will help you find the perfect shade...
GO BLONDE IF YOU...
Have lots of pink in your skin: A cool, baby blonde is gorgeous with rosy skin freshens the face yet prevents the skin from looking too flushed. Conversely, rosy skin (or even just a face full of bubble-gummy makeup) will clash with warm, brown hair.
Want to cut your hair short: When a short haircut is really hot, it's always on a blonde - this is probably partly due to highlights' ability to play up a style's shape.
Need a lift: Going blonde can adds brightness to your look—and your outlook.
GO BRUNETTE IF YOU...
Have very thin hair: Darker strands add dimension and the illusion of thickness to fine, airy hair. To add extra depth, colour the under-layers a slightly richer shade than the top.
Have an olive complexion: No skin tone is better suited to chocolaty strands. A rich brown will counteract your complexion's tendency toward sallowness, as well as make your eyes and teeth look whiter.
Can't deal with high-maintenance hair: Keeping up with lightened locks is costly and time-consuming, while going darker can require as few as two visits a year. Brunettes also have an easier time colouring at home because you're not removing pigment (as you must to go blonde) and don't have to worry about brassiness.
