Trying to figure out what hair color will look best on you? Take this quiz to quickly discover the perfect shade that will flatter your features and make you glow!
What is your natural hair color?
Knowing your natural hair color is the first step to finding your perfect shade. If you have medium-brown or darker hair, you may look great with golden blonde highlights or auburn lowlights. If you have light brown or darker hair, try a honey blonde hue for a subtle change. Blondes can go for an ash blonde tone, while those with almost black hair might want to go for a chocolatey brunette color. Be sure to consult with a professional to figure out what shade will be best for you!
What is your skin tone?
Your skin tone is an important factor to consider when choosing your hair color, as it can determine which shades best suit you. A professional colorist can help you determine what skin tone you have and suggest the best options for your hair color goals. If you have fair skin, cool tones like mocha brown and platinum blonde tend to look best. If your skin is olive or dark, warm tones such as golden blond and chestnut brown are always good choices.
What is your eye color?
Your eye color can often help you determine which shades of hair color could work for you. For example, blue eyes often look best with neutral tones such as dark brown and ash blonde, while green eyes go nicely with golden blond or light copper shades. Brown eyes can pull off almost any hair color—from warm reds to cool blues. Once you’ve found your perfect shade, let the professionals at Salon PDX help you create the look that suits you best!
Which look do you prefer – subtle or dramatic?
Depending on the look you’re trying to achieve, you may prefer subtle highlights or a bold full-color change. If you want a look that’s low-maintenance and natural, we recommend subtle highlights that blend in with your natural hair color. For something more dramatic, go for a full-color change or try adding in some brighter tones such as blonde balayage or red ombré.
What type of cut are you looking for?
The type of cut you choose will also affect the hue or shades of your hair color. You can play it safe with a classic bob or go for longer layers if you want to show off highlights or flashier colors. Plus, the length and shape of your cut can accentuate different features such as your eyes and cheekbones so consider what effect you want to create when choosing a style.
