Men can look Younger with Hair Color!

Hey Guys! Our gray hair can make you look distinguished or it can make you look old and tired. Sometimes it lends credibility and other time it lands you a date at the retirement home for a 4 p.m.dinner.  I know guys who gray prematurely and find themselves mostly gray in their mid 30′s, and I also know guys in their late 40′s that have not shown any signs of graying–not fair, but true. Whatever you decide to do about it, you should feel comfortable with the decision.

Men and hair coloring have been taboo subjects. For some the conversation is just as “off the table” as the “don’t ask, don’t tell” gay policy for the military. But regardless of its status, men’s home hair coloring business is booming. According to industry experts, it grew by over 10% during 2012.

What is the right color for you!

Any of us could color our hair pink, green or black (if we wanted to) but depending on our hair color, the process varies from a simple one-step hair color to a more complicated double coloring process. This said, here are the colors that are easiest to achieve with one-step colors. Generally, for those with black hair, it’s easier to achieve shades of red and dark brown. For those with brown hair, coloring to achieve other shades of brown, blond, caramel, and red tends to be more straightforward.

Finally, men with blond hair can easily get their hair lightened or altered to browns and reds.Your choice of color should also be based on the analysis of your skin tone.
There’s no general rule in determining which hair color will suit your skin tone best.

 However, men with darker complexions look better with “cooler tones.” The most flattering coloring options for men with darker skin tones are golden highlights, golden with red highlights, golden brown, honey brown, chestnut, copper, auburn, mahogany, and warm tones of gray and white. On the other hand, guys with pale skin should opt for warmer colors. For more flattering results, choose colors such as plum, burgundy highlights, ash, platinum blond, brown, dark brown, black, slate, salt and pepper, and white.

Here are some tips about home hair color and read them wisely!

Your “natural” color is lighter than you think. Always go for a color that’s a shade lighter than what you think you need. The longer the stuff stays on your head the darker it becomes. So pay attention to time. Use a mirror and make sure you get the back of your head as well. Just because you can’t see back there, doesn’t mean the rest of the world cannot either. The dye will stain your skin, meaning anywhere it touches including your forehead, ears, hands. It also stains wood cabinets and even tile (don’t ask how I know.) The older you get the lighter your hair should be. If you are thinking of dying your hair, don’t wait until your head is completely gray or the change will be very drastic. “Whoa, what happened to you?” is not what you’re going for. Once you get started, you’ll need to do it every few weeks. It’s a commitment. Spend a few dollars and have a professional do it. You won’t regret it.

Good Luck!

Time was when your hair color choices were blonde, red, brunette, and black, but those days are long gone! Each basic hair color comes in a full array of choices from platinum blonde to jet-black. Moreover, the modern consumer must choose from non-traditional hair colors that range from hot pink to chartreuse. However, the wrong hair color choice can give you the blues and leave you red in the face!

First Hair Color Choices
The best method in choosing a hair color is first to choose the results you want from it. Depending on whether you are covering gray, highlighting a natural hair color, or using hair color to completely change your image, knowing what you want helps you to narrow down hair coloring choices.

Before you get down to choosing a hair color, first decide on your commitment to hair coloring. Temporary hair colors wash out in a shampoo or two, semi permanent products typically last for a couple of months, while permanent dyes may either give you grow-out pains or necessitate frequent root touch ups.

Choosing a Compatible Hair Color
After you’ve decided on results and made your commitment, it’s time to get out the color wheel. Beauty experts tell us that we’re either “cool” or “warm” depending on our skin tone, eye color, and natural hair color.

  Cool Category Warm Category
Eyes Dark Brown, Black-Brown, Gray Blue, Dark Blue, or Hazel with white gray or blue flecks Golden brown, Green, Green-Blue, Turquoise, Hazel with gold or brown flecks
Hair Blue black, Deep brown, Ash brown, Ash Blond, Platinum Blond Deep brown with gold or red highlights, Red, Strawberry Blond, Gray-Yellow, Natural Golden Blond
Skin Very dark brown, True olive, Medium pale, Medium with golden undertones, Pale, Bronze Brown with pink or golden undertones, Peachy or with peachy undertones, Pale with gold undertones, Freckled, Ruddy

Although this is good advice, if you’ve just finished a tanning session, if you have some complexion problems (Rosacea, liver spots, blemishes), or if your hair color is already not what nature intended (in other words previously tinted or more salt than pepper), it may be difficult to determine by examining your skin tone and hair color. Don’t despair! There is a shortcut!

Examine your wardrobe. Cool hues are green, blue, and violet. Warm hues are reds, oranges, and yellows. Chances are, your wardrobe is a mix with either cool or warm hues in the majority. Clothing colors that look good on you and make you feel comfortable probably indicate if you’re in the cool or warm category. For instance, if olive drab makes you fade into the woodwork, then cool tones like ash blonde (ash tones contain green) are probably not for you.

In addition, most commercial hair colors have aids on the box, yet if you have a hard time deciding which group is your group, you may want to seek the advice of a professional hair stylist.

Hair Color Tips:

  1. Highlighting is a great way to add tone to monochromatic hair (jet black, pure brown).
  2. Beware of hair colors that have green, blue, or purple undertones, like “ash”. If you mix them with warm tones, your hair color will turn out green.
  3. The levels (one to twelve) you see on hair coloring boxes are the lightness or darkness of the color. Level one is black (darkest) and level twelve is light blond.
  4. “Complimentary colors” are opposite each other on the color wheel. Blue-orange, violet-yellow, etc. If you want to neutralize unwanted highlights, choose the complementary color. For instance, red will cancel out an ash undertone, and an ashen color neutralizes any red highlights in your hair.
  5. Be sure to check if your hair color is a “progressive dye”. Progressive dyes continually add more color with each use. For instance, if you’re coloring blond hair black, your first use of a progressive hair color may not give the result you expected. However, continued use will turn your hair jet black.
  6. Hair colors, like perms, are chemically based so if you’re pregnant, be sure to check with your doctor before coloring your hair.
  7. Henna hair dyes are organic based hair colors that don’t mix well with chemicals. Stay out of the pool and the ocean after coloring your hair. Neither sea salt nor chlorine mixes well with chemical hair colors.
