Choosing the Right Hair Dye


Choosing the Right Hair Dye

Dyeing your hair is one thing that can make you feel very apprehensive. As the right hair dye will define your future look. Deciding on a hair color is no amateur job as it needs the knowledge of skin tone, undertone, color combinations; and if done wrong they can also ruin your look. It is suggested that if your skin undertone is warm then you should pick a cool tone hair color and vice versa, as it will neutralize your skin tone and will enhance your facial feature even more. Your skin color also defines what’s gonna look best on you and what not so make sure you’re aware of everything about you before you decide on a hair color.

Picking the right hair dye is always a tedious task but don’t worry as Indique is here for your rescue. If you are not able to decide which hair dye you should pick then we have a color guide for you to pick from. Just perform these steps and you’ll be all set to get your colors right and treat yourself to a new look.

This is another crucial step in your hair dye journey as once you decide it you have to make sure that you are 100% in that decision because once your hairs are colored you can’t change them for a month on an average.

As you’ve decided upon your color goals it’s time to decide your color family. Though there are many colors out in the market it’s best that we pre-decided what color our hairs are going to be. So to help you ladies further we segregated the colors into 4 major categories. Pick from the category and move to the next step.

Blonde | Brown | Red | Black

Color your hair

Now, You’re all ready to get your hair colored, and to help you further we even came up with the shade guide based on your skin undertone. Now for ladies who don’t know what your skin undertone is, I have the best 3 step process to identify it.

Step 1: Find a room with amazing lighting and a Mirror

Step 2: Pick 2 clothes 1 with Red shade and 1 with Yellow. Now place them both under your chin and see which one looks best on you. If it’s RED then you’re of Cool undertone and if it’s yellow then you’re warm undertone.

Now let’s do a rain check and perform the same test with a different object

Step 3: Pick 2 pieces of jewelry one gold and one silver. Perform the same process and place it on your face or neck depending on the jewelry. If silver suits you more then you're cool skin tone and if gold then warm.

VOILA, you’ve found your skin undertone. And now you can pick a color based on your skin tone. Now ladies all you have to do is go to your choice of color section and find your color combination. You’ll find all hair color suggestions based on your skin undertone, shade, and color family. Make sure you consider all factors before picking a hair color from the chart.
