If you are dark skinned, you may prefer to go for the darker shades of colors, like the deep reds or browns.
If you are pale skinned and light eyed, you may consider getting golden or caramel tones or even a subdued blonde look.
If you are trying out hair color for the very first time, you should consider the more subtle look that gradually moves from one shade to the other. You may even consider two to three shades depending upon your complexion.
When deciding on the shades of color, you may choose at least 3-4 shades that are lighter than the darkest color that will be visible on your hair, achieving the desired Ombre effect. Remember that everybody’s hair is different, and it may take more than one coloring session for you to get the proper Ombre dyed effect.
