Hair Color Shades that Compliment and Flatter
There are specific hair color shades that can enhance, compliment, and flatter your present hair color. They are a wonderful way to mix things up when you’re sick of the same old, same old. Since light refracts from your hair, adding touches of similar colors (complimentary colors) to your hair also increases shine-ability and adds pizzazz!
What are complimentary colors? They are colors that accentuate other colors by making both colors appear brighter. They also blend into primary colors without looking obvious. Contrasting colors on the other hand, are bold colors that are easily seen and do not necessarily blend.
The easiest way to add flattering colors to your hair is by adding more hair colors to your hair. You can be as subtle or obvious as you like. It's a decision that should be based on your own personal preferences.
You can also enhance hair colors by using colors that add more than one color. Golden hair colors for instance, can add gold or red highlights to your hair.
Use the examples below as a guide for your best hair color shades.
Best Hair Color Shades that Compliment Your Hair
Most of the time, complimentary colors are achieved by adding highlights or lowlights to your present hair color. You don’t have to modify your base color, you simply add to it! So if you like your hair color, you don’t have to change it. You will also enhance your present hair color just by including a few additional hair colors.
Use semi/demi permanent colors or permanent hair color shades as highlights or lowlights to embellish and compliment your base shade. (If you're unsure of how to add your own highlights
, check out this three part video.)
