Is it time for you to refresh your ‘do with a new color? If you’ve been dyeing (pun intended) for a change, may we suggest some hair color combinations that will transform your haircut?
Though there’s nothing wrong with a simple one-color dye job, having your hair color done with a dimensional or multi-colored approach will definitely do more for your tresses. When your colorist strategically applies a different shade or hue as lowlights or highlights, this creates a more textured look that brings out the best of your hairstyle. The same can be said if your roots are lighter or darker than the rest of your head—it’s all about using the right hue to play up your hairstyle.
That said, if you’ve only been dying your hair with one flat color all this time, this is the sign for you to definitely explore more stylish hue combinations that would elevate your look. Here, we round up all the trendy and cool hair color mixes that range from subtle formulas that are fresh and dainty, to bold choices even K-pop stars would be envious of.
