Overview
An individual making a permanent change to his or her hair color should take the time to plan and think about what hair color he or she would like. Making the mistake of choosing a new hair color quickly and without the right amount of thought may result in much time and money spent correcting the problem. Several factors can assist in choosing the right hair color that will suit you best and ensure that you're pleased with the final result.
Choosing a Color

Step 1
Consider whether you would like a bold or subtle look. If you are going for a subtle change, you should choose a hair color that is similar in shade and tone to your current hair color. If you would like a bold and noticeable change, choose a shade that is several levels lighter or darker than your current hair color.
Step 2
Look at magazine pictures or pictures online to decide what shade and tone you would like to achieve. The final color that you decide on may not be identical to this initial color but you should begin with a goal in mind.
Step 3
Look in the mirror at your skin tone. Your skin has a lot to do with choosing the right hair color as your hair color should complement your skin. If your cheeks have natural hues of pink, for example, you may not want to choose a hair color that has red tones.
Step 4
Observe your current hair color in a mirror. Look at the underlying tones to see if the hair color is an ashy or warm tone. If the color that you would like your hair be in the end is darker but warm and your current hair color is warm, it will not be necessary to have any golds or reds in the hair color that you use to dye your hair.
Step 5
Visit a professional hairstylist before making your final decision. Many licensed cosmetologists will even offer a free hair coloring consultation. This individual could help guide you on your decision and advise you on which hair color would be the best for you.
