Choosing the Right Hair Color to Color You Gorgeous
Robert Jones is so often asked about hair color. What color should your hair be? A good rule of thumb is, if you want to be saf, stay within two levels of your natural color.
In other words, if the depth level of your hair is a level 4 then don’t go any lighter than a level 6 and when darkening do not go any darker than a level 2. If you are confused, don’t worry – your hairdressers will understand the lingo – if they don’t, get out of the chair immediately and start running because they should not be coloring your hair!!!
Robert says that it can be a total blast to play with hair color, just be sure to take into consideration the health of your hair and, if you are thinking about a drastic color change, you might want to try on a wig of that color to see if it works for you!
Here is a picture of one of Robert Joneses’ favorite models in a variety of hair colors and lengths. It’s up to you to figure out what is hers and what is not. What you need to see is how she can pull off multiple looks because you can, too! Notice the subtle steps in depth level really work on her, demonstrating my point of two levels up or two levels down to be safe (not that you all want to be safe)!!!
DARK with bangs a la Cleopatra. What do you thing? Is it really her’s?
MEDIUM BROWN and super long…is any or all of it her hair?
LIGHT BROWN with subtle highlights and medium length…is this the real her?
PLATINUM just for fun!! Is it really her’s? Yeah…NO!!
Keep in mind, you might have to change your makeup choices a bit! For instance, if you darken your hair you will want to intensify your color choices a bit so you don’t appear washed out. If you lighten your hair you will want to lighten up the intensity of your color choices so you don’t look harsh.
So call your best girlfriend up (cause you know she will have an opinion) and head out for the best wig store in your city or town. Don’t forget a camera so you can take pictures of yourself in each one! Also, ask the person helping you for the color number of the wig…if your stylists know much about wigs and extensions it will help them know the shade.
