If this is your first time colouring your hair, then go for a semi-permanent hair colour. Also, always go for a colour that is either two or three shades away from your natural one; it will complement your hair tone.
Talk to your stylist to understand what exactly your look will be, so that you can accordingly decide the colour for your hair. The colour of your hair should match the entire look; it should be complementary to the whole and not stand out.
Here is a guide on how to choose the right colour for your hair.
As weird it may sound, but this is the most important thing that you should consider before getting your hair coloured for your wedding, or even otherwise. Women with a dusky complexion can experiment with single or double streaks of dark red such as mahogany, toffee, maple brown or other warm shades whereas women with a lighter complexion can try caramel colours, natural browns, blonde, medium reds and pinks.
If you’re a woman who gets conscious of her dressing, overall look and all that it signifies, then you should choose a colour more suited to your personality. Women who are a little spunkier can opt for strong contrasts to their natural hair colour while those who like to keep it simple can go for simple highlights and more natural-looking shades.
Just like your personality, the kind of hair you have is another factor that you should consider while choosing your hair colour. If you have frizzy hair, you can try getting blonde or contrasting streaks since this will highlight your frizzy ends. If you have nice and thick curls, opt for darker and more contrasting shades to your natural colour since this will make your hair look voluminous. Don’t go for exactly the same colour as it will make your hair look messy.
Quality of water
Water is absolutely essential when it comes to keeping your hair healthy and clean. Choosing your hair colour also depends on the kind of water you available at home. Opting for the wrong colour can lead to your hair getting dry and spoilt, and you may also face split-ends. If you have hard water at home, go for colours that are similar to your natural hair tone. If you choose a colour that is far from your natural colour, everyone will be able to notice it when the colour starts to wear off. Trust us; it will certainly look very odd. If you have soft water then yes, you can opt for colours that are further from your natural colour.
