How to Choose the Right Hair Color For Your Hair. There are some people who are just blessed and lucky and who can look great with any hair color, but for most of us we need to generally stick to one hair color or another to look our best. There are a few tips that you will want to be aware of and which will help you understand what hair color is going to work best for you.

Skin Tone

One of the first and most important things you need to do if you want to be able to decide what hair color to go with is to determine what skin tone you have. Is it an olive skin tone that you have, or is your skin more golden?

Cool and Warm Categories

It is easy to figure out whether you have a cool or warm skin tone. If you have eyes that are deep brown or black-brown, gray blue or dark blue, hazel with white, gray or blue flecks, and your hair is blue black, deepest coffee brown, medium ash brown, medium golden brown, or dishwater blonde, you are considered as being in the cool category.

If you have golden brown eyes, green, green blue or turquoise eyes, and your skin tone is brown with pink undertone, brown with golden undertone, pale with peach or gold undertones, or ruddy, then you are  most likely a warm skin tone.

If you have a warm skin tone, you should avoid dark hair colors such as jet black and black-blue because they will wash out your natural color, and depending on your skin tone and of course your preferences, you will find that dark warm browns, rich golden browns and auburn, warm gold and red highlights and golden blonde shades work best on you.

So if you have a warm skin tone you are going to want to go no darker than a dark warm brown, which still has warmth in it. If you go jet black your skin will look white, whereas people with a cool skin tone could get away with black hair.

Of course the easiest route is to head to a professional hair salon where there will be hair experts and who can tell you which hair color is going to work best on you. Remember, when you are choosing a color for your hair it is not just as easy as picking up any box of color and getting that exact color. Depending on the undertones of your hair, your skin tone, and other factors, it may end up being a completely different color.

Mens Hair Style Tips. Men are different to women in that their (men’s) main concern is paying close attention to the type of clothes they wear and also the type of shoes that will help accentuate their clothes. A majority of men simply do not pay much attention to men’s hair style and will make do with whatever a corner barbershop offers by way of a hair style. However, a proper men’s hair style can do a lot for a man’s personality and short men’s hair style in particular will help in creating sophistication and class in any man’s appearance.

Short Hair Is Easy To Take Care Of

A short men’s hair style is also easy to take card of and is ideal for hot summer weather. It also helps to make the wearer look clean and a bit more mature and there is also a certain degree of sophistication attached to keeping your hair short. Finally, short men’s hair styles also help to make a man look younger though when choosing to keep short hair makes sure to keep the entire hair on your head short all over rather than opting for short at the bottom accompanied by long hair on the top.

There are many variations that you can try if you want a good short men’s hair style and one option is to have bangs pushing forward while another option is to use gel in order to push the hair up and backwards. Hair gel can help your hair look a lot spikier though with medium hair the look can be made to look a bit messy.

To get the right look, it is often necessary to undergo an entire procedure and often a particular men’s hair style will even require needing to take a shower and then forgetting about combing the hair. Instead, you may have to apply some gel or paste in order to create a messier look such as when a woman runs her hair through a man’s hair.

Some people prefer long men’s hair style and will allow their hair to even grow to longer than shoulder length. Such men’s hair style is more relaxed and embodies a carefree attitude. However, it must be said that a short hair style is the most popular among men. People that have receding hairlines should choose to cut their hair very short in an attempt to disguise their baldness.

In any case, it is necessary that you don’t try and shave off or trim your hair as this will make it obvious that you are intentionally wearing your hair as short as possible and this fact will not help create a good impression in the eyes of the beholder.
