Picking the right hair color

Choosing the right hair color for you really depends on four things.

1. Your skin tone
2. Your eye color
3. Your natural hair color
4. Preference

You will need to decide if you are one of these skin color tones.

1. Warm = Your hair is naturally red, reddish blonde, or golden brown; your skin will be peach or gold undertones, copper, caramel or golden undertones.
2. Cool = your hair is naturally dark brown, golden blonde or bluish black. Your skin is pale with visible pink or no undertones.

A quick way to figure out if you are a warm or cool skin tone is to look at the veins in your arms. If they are a greenish tint you are a warm tone, if they are blue then you are a cool.

Try deep, rich colors like dark brown, mahogany and auburn for warm/golden skin tones. Warm yellows” do best with copper, cinnamon, ginger, russet and strawberry shades of red hair color

Shades of brown (light/ medium), burgundy, ruby and light reds are good for cool/blue-red skin tones.

Every skin tone is different just as your natural color is different. Henna hair dye blends with your natural color to give you a one of a kind color.

How our colors work

Harvest Moon Hair dye works by binding to the protein of the hair and covering the natural color you start with.

So our colors do not go lighter. If you have black hair and use light brown you will not see any color change. If you start with white hair, the color you get is the color it will be.

We do sell samples to use on small areas that you can do a patch test with. This will help determine the exact shade you will achieve.

Remember if you have multiple shades of hair that are darker and lighter the lighter areas will match the color you are using.

So if you are using red and you have brown hair with gray, the gray will show the red better or as highlights.

If you are brown and have gray hair and you use brown, the gray will be brown and match the color of the rest of your hair.
