Is Your Hair Color Aging You?

We may not have discovered the fountain of youth, but there are so many things we can do to look our best as we age.  It is a fact that good skin care, such as protecting your skin from the harmful rays of the sun and using high quality products with retinols, vitamin C and hyaluronic acids can shave years off.  Eating healthy foods and drinking lots of water also is key to looking fab through the years.  But did you know that the wrong hair color can also either add years or take years off?  Here are some things to keep in mind, and of course, consulting with one of our talented hair pros is highly recommended, as they will be able to determine the perfect color based on your skin tone, eye color, and they will also take into account the natural shade of hair color you were born with (which is usually perfect).  So read on for our tips…..

Going Too Dark:

Going too dark can sap color from your face.  As we age we need to keep the shade rich, such as a beautiful chestnut, caramel, multidimensional brown or soft copper depending on your skin tone.  Hair that is too dark can look opague or have the “shoe polish” look.  Adding in some balayage or highlights will brighten your face.

Going Too Light or Ashy:

Blonde is beautiful but very ashy shades can appear to be gray and age you.  Butter, golden blonde or cool blonde shades without ash are best. There is a fine line between too warm and too cool.  As we age our skin gets more sallow so adding a few free form strokes of balayage around your face can “wake up” your whole face.

Healthy Hair Matters:

Just as picking the right shade of color matters, so does having healthy hair.  Over coloring, using the wrong products (harsh shampoos, sprays or products with drying alcohol) and washing hair too often can make hair dried and fried.  Even if you pick the perfect shade of hair color, it will not look great on abused hair.
