There’s nothing more exciting for many than deciding to change the colour of their hair. Whether it’s blonde to bright red or a subtle change in tone, a new look can be extremely invigorating. There are quite a few websites or apps, where you can upload your picture, and try different styles and colours digitally. Gone are the days when you had to sit in the chair at your local salon, cross your fingers and hope for the best.

Although you may love the idea of a bright teal ombre effect, it might not actually suit you or your lifestyle. The results will also depend on the natural tone of your skin, original hair colour and condition. There are some general rules you can go by when choosing a colour:

1. Warm Skin Tones
Skin tone is a crucial factor when it comes to the best colour for you, for instance pink or olive skin tones look great with shades of auburn or golden blonde.

2. Cool Skin Tones
Cooler skin tones perhaps with blueish hints are best with cooler hair shades. Ash blonde with a hint of blue, or red with a tinge of purple will be sure to catch the eye.

3. Keep it Natural
Keeping your colour relatively natural, within two shades of your own light or dark shade, is the way to go. Much darker than your natural skin tone and you could look washed out, too light will have the opposite effect. A trendy dip dye can be a nice compromise, for a more gradual change.

4. Take Your Time
You may be itching for a big change right now, but it’s better to wait, and proceed cautiously. Go for a gradual approach, especially if you are planning a drastic colour change. Keep it well conditioned too, as this will pay dividends in the long run.
