What You Need to Know About Changing Your Hair Color

If you were to stroll down the hair color aisle at a big box store, you might be led to believe that changing your hair color is as easy as apply, rinse, and dry. But really, there are lots of factors to consider, and you’ll learn about all of them if you choose to take hairdressing courses at a beauty school. A professional knows the ins and outs of choosing the right hair color to complement one’s skin and eyes, for example, and how to evaluate the overall health of the hair.

Your hair color should complement your skin and eyes.

Before committing to a drastic makeover, you should ensure the hair color you choose will flatter you, based on factors like your eye color and skin tone. For example, if you have a medium to fair warm skin tone, with green eyes, consider a stunning red color. Generally, lighter skin tones pair well with lighter hair colors, like honey, butterscotch, and strawberry blonde. Olive skin tones and dark eyes do well with an earthy, rich color with gold or honey highlights. Dark skin tones and dark eyes pair well with a hair color that contrasts, such as a darker or lighter color.

You should know the required commitment for maintenance.

Some hair colors and styles require far more upkeep than others. Always know the required maintenance before committing to a makeover. Ask the stylist whether it will take more than one appointment to finish the initial work, and how often you’ll need to return for touch-ups. You should also ask about any recommended changes to your hair care routine.

The health of your hair can influence your options.

In hair design school, students learn how to assess the health of a client’s hair. Very healthy hair can withstand a drastic, full color makeover. If your hair has already been chemically treated or aggressively styled, it may need a rest before a major change. Instead, consider a low-ammonia hair color glaze, ombre, or balayage style.

You get bummed when doing your hair.

Does fixing your hair feel like a chore? If so, chances are that you’re frustrated with your style. Many people who are experiencing style burnout only do the bare minimum to do their hair, or they simply cut their losses and pull their hair back every day. If you don’t have a least a little excitement about doing your hair, it’s time to change things up to keep things interesting.

You just went through a major life change.

Often, the best time to try a new style is when everything else feels different, too. Maybe you just started beauty school, or maybe you moved to a new a town. Starting a new job, ending a relationship, getting married, or losing weight are more significant changes that people go through that make them interested in updating their looks. A new haircut could be the perfect way to celebrate the new you.

How Often Should Bangs Be Trimmed?

If bangs are part of your signature look—or if you’re in hair school and getting ready to have clients with bangs in your chair—then you may be wondering how often they should be trimmed. A bang trim is an important technique that students master in beauty school, and if you become a stylist, you can expect to be doing them on a regular basis.

The frequency of bang trims depends on a many different factors, from the speed of hair growth to personal preference. Generally, every two to three weeks is a good target for most people. However, people who prefer longer, side-swept bangs may get away with longer times between trims, while those who have fast-growing hair may need more frequent touch-ups.

Picking a Red Lipstick for Your Skin Tone

Red lipstick will never let you down when you want a bold, “look at me” statement for your makeup. But picking the perfect shade isn’t always easy. At makeup school, you’ll learn about the subtle differences in lipstick hues that determine whether they’ll pair well with certain complexions. For inspiration, look at celebrities. Sofia Vergara has a warm complexion with neutral undertones, so a blue-red lipstick is perfect for her.

On the other hand, people with fair complexions tend to do well with lipsticks in shades of raspberry and cranberry. Women with dark complexions look fantastic with a high-pigment, orange-red lipstick. Use a bronzy-brown lip pencil to create a smooth transition between lip and skin. Women with dark complexions with warm undertones, like Jennifer Hudson, can use an opaque blue-based red with a matte finish.
