Summer is one of the most popular times for women to change their hair color. Unfortunately, summer is also one of the harshest seasons on the hair. No matter what hue you choose, it is important to find a shade that works with your lifestyle and coloring. It’s also essential to take care of your hair properly throughout the warmer months so that your color stays beautiful.
Narrow color choices down by deciding if your natural eye color and skin tone are in the warm or cool area. Blue, dark brown or grey eyes are generally considered cool, as is dark brown, olive or very pale skin. Green and hazel eyes along with golden-toned or freckled skin is considered warm.
Try to determine your general schedule of events for the summer. If you plan on spending a lot of time in the pool or at the beach, choose colors (and coloring products) that will withstand harsh chemicals and conditions.
If you want to go lighter all over, with a full head of blonde highlights, don’t simply settle for just plain blonde. Choose a lighter hue that complements your skin tone; this may mean a more golden or dirty blonde color.
