Choosing the Right Hue

One reason why people have shied away from dying their hair black is because of how harsh it may make them look. If you’ve had that experience, you’re not alone. The color black is like other colors in that it has different shades and undertones. Choosing the right undertone is key to finding the shade that works for you. If you want to stay true to the neutral look, you can choose a jet black or a soft black. If you’d like to mix it up a bit, ask us about adding different undertones such as red, purple, and even blue! So when you show off your dark, flowing hair, the light will pick up glimmers of color with every turn of the head.

Choosing a Style

Obviously, when choosing a new do, picking the color is only part of the journey. When you decide to choose a new style, it can be a daunting task figuring out what’s right for you. Luckily, because black goes with just about everything, it’s easy, and fun, to pick one. If you prefer a simple style to get up and run out of the door, you can choose a pixie cut. If a sleek, Kim Kardashian-esque look is what you want to achieve, a simple lob cut with a middle part is just as simple. The possibilities are endless with black!

Is Black Difficult to Maintain?

Like with maintaining other colors, black can seem hard to keep up with at first. But once you’ve got the proper tools at your disposal, and are aware of the dos and don’ts, your sable strands will hold up stronger for longer. In addition to washing your hair less and using color-safe products, there are other things you can do as well. It may feel uncomfortable, but rinsing your hair with cooler water preserves the color and health of your hair. In addition to that, it is important to keep outside factors at bay such as UV rays and chlorine if you swim. If you want to have silky, dark hair all year round, make sure to wear hats when you’re outside and swim caps if you want to swim.
