Best Colours for Blondes, Brunettes, and Redheads

WARM?  COOL?  NEUTRAL?

Is your hair warm, cool, or neutral?

Warm:
- has golden undertones
- creates the effect of sunlight hitting your hair

Cool:
- no golden tones at all

Neutral
- a combination of both.  try tips for hilighted hair at bottom.

What colours do you (want to) look best in?
warm (yellow, tomato, red) - recommend warm shades of hair
cool (lavender, royal blue) - recommend a neutral colour
