Wigs are not only functional, they are an easy answer to changing your look.An understanding of your own coloring and how color abbreviations work is beneficial, and one should also be sure to take accurate measurements before buying. Here are few tips to take into consideration when selecting a wig color:
Understanding Your Coloring
People are said to have either warm or cool coloring. The two categories are influenced by skin tone, eye color, and natural hair color. To see the undertones of your natural hair color, look at your hair in sunlight with a handheld mirror. Glimmers of red, orange, or yellow mean that your coloring is warm, while blue, green, or purple tones indicate cool coloring.First time wig wearers should stick to wig colors and styles that are close to their current style and color. This will help them get used to a slightly different look and will make the transition between styles more comfortable.
For the most natural look, choose a wig color that’s close to your own or slightly lighter. As we age, our skin tone tends to look a little washed out, but choosing the right hair color can help us look younger.
Avoid going more than two shades lighter or darker than your natural hair color.Choose a wig color that looks great with your skin tone and eye color. Going too light or too dark will be dramatic, but might not be the best result for you.
If you want a dramatic change, consider making gradual changes by going lighter or darker a little at a time. The great advantage of wearing wigs is that you can easily get to the wig color you want without chemically damaging your hair.
If you were blonde,go a little darker wig color than the shade you used to be, in order to look best with your current skin tone.Golden highlights brighten your complexion and make you look more youthful.
If your hair is auburn, choose copper highlights wig color. Natural brunettes look best with caramel, and blondes look best with honey tones. Synthetic wig fibers and human hair products are pre-blended with these natural looking highlights. Wearing wigs enables you to achieve salon colors much easier and less costly than salon color applications on your natural hair.
