Let’s face it after a while hair colors become old and boring. While you may have loved your hue when you first received it, after spending months (or even years) staring at it in the mirror, it’s only natural to want something new. Luckily, coloring hair has become more sophisticated and innovative than ever. This means, there are plenty of new and exciting colors just waiting for you to give them a try, and they’re better than ever. Rich and filled with vibrancy, today’s coolest colors are full of life.

How do I choose a hair color?
The first step to choosing a hair color is determining if you have warm, cool, or neutral tones in your skin. If you tend to look best in warm colors, you have warm tones, while cool colored clothing suits cool tones. If you look great in both, you have a neutral tone. Warmer hues such as buttery blonde, caramel, rose gold, and warm chocolate are great options for warm-toned women. Meanwhile, for cool hued skin, opt for platinum blonds, silver, taupe, merlot, burgundy, and mocha. Lastly, neutral-toned ladies have endless options, looking great in anything.
What is the best color to cover grey hair?
The best color to cover greys will depend on what shade your hair is, how much grey hair you have, and if you have warm or cool-toned skin. Blond highlights are a great way of disguising greys and making them less noticeable. It also allows you to keep a different base color, rather than jumping into a complete change. Alternatively, you can go blond all over, whether it's something icy or even a soft silver. When it comes to darker colors, choose ashy brown, mocha, burgundy, or even copper.
