Match Your Hair Color to Your Skin Tone
If you were a blond in kindergarten, then try matching your present-day color to that hue. A color darker than a couple shades from your natural color will simply not look natural, and it may wash out your complexion. If you color at home and aren't looking to cover too many gray hairs, then look for semipermanent shades, which allow for more trial and error. Gray hair tends to be resistant to color, so opt for a permanent shade if you're more than 15 percent gray. If you goof the color at home, then a semipermanent formula will fade with two to three washings with a clarifying shampoo formula. If you mess up a permanent color, then it's best to just suck it up and go to a stylist for a fix, instead of coloring with another box.
