Hair Colors for a Younger Look
When we say hair color, it does not only mean hiding the grays. There are many color palates that can transform your look, back to the good old ‘looking-pretty’ days! Yes, before we begin we would like to share some tips that can be useful. Opt for a good haircut that will make you look younger. Trust me with a bad cut, even the best of hair colors will not help, so make sure you get that right. Cover your grays, these hair color ideas for gray hair can help you. Even if the hair is thinning, graying, keep them nourished and healthy. Once you get this on track, you can crown them with some cool shades of hair color.
Earths and Browns: Most of us think natural is the best, and hair colors in brown shades give just enough warmth, to keep you looking younger. In case of browns choose something that is not extremely contrasting to your natural hair color and skin tone. Two shades lighter than your original hair color will give you a decent warm look. Opt for smooth chocolate shades, honey brown, golden brown and light brown to ash brown shades. The pigmentation on the skin tends to fade away as we age, so brightening up the pale look is important. These shades will give you just the right amount of glow.
Subtle Reds: Yes, you still can play with some hot red shades of hair color. Though some care needs to be taken when choosing them. Bright funky reds are a big no! Do not even try highlighting a chunk of hair or few strands in dark and funky red. Use subtle tones and warm tones close to brown and not contrasting to the hair color. Auburn shades and shades in reddish brown can give you a chic look. With a stylish hair style, reds can do well to create a younger look.
Golden Blondes: If you have lighter colored hair, blonde shades can be your hair color for a younger look. Here again make sure you do not create contrasts. While choosing the shades, do not color in pale blondes and very light tones. Keep two shades darker or lighter from the original hair color. Shades like honey blonde and golden blonde, and dark natural blondes can go well for highlights giving you a sun kissed appearance. For low lights (darker shade than your natural hair color) you can try beige natural blonde or dark natural blonde. Stay away from ash blondes and platinum blondes. Try to get low lights when you have light blonde hair, darker shades will create depth in the overall look. These colors will add the glow to your face and instantly brighten up a dull and old look.
