Sometimes, to look younger after 40, all you need is the right coloring. SSPDaily tells about it.

Basic rules for choosing hair color for women over 40

The main rule is very simple: you need your hair color to make you look younger, so choose only 1-2 shades lighter than your natural color. But various techniques to hide gray hair with a dark shade, on the contrary, can add age.

You need to be especially careful with black hair color (except if a woman is a burning brunette with fair skin). In general, one of the key rules in choosing a shade is skin color. For example, olive goes well with chestnut and dark blond, while golden-haired women are better suited to honey blonde. Dark-skinned women can safely experiment even with a dark palette.

What hair color rejuvenates after 40 years

Stylists call chocolate, warm red and honey tones the ideal palette for women over 40. But when choosing the right shade, be sure to start from your color type, eye and skin color.

Also, don't forget to take proper care of your hair, as shiny and smooth strands also help you look younger.

At this age, it's important to divert unnecessary attention from facial wrinkles, skin imperfections, and other signs of aging. Therefore, you should not choose red and red shades. They only emphasize dullness and redness. Lively chestnut, golden blonde, and ash colors have a rejuvenating effect.

What hair colors always age

Stylists recommend blacklisting the following coloring techniques if you have already crossed the 40-year mark:

  • bleaching (if the hair is not colored after it);
  • monochrome blond (which differs from your main color by 3-5 tones);
  • highlighting using three colors of different gamut (for example, chestnut, blond and red);
  • raven black (if the woman is not a naturally white-skinned brunette);
  • pronounced copper shades, red (emphasize skin imperfections);
  • purple tone (makes the skin pale and dull).

What hair color helps blondes look younger

If you have blue, gray or green eyes and light, cool skin, pay attention to the entire range of cool blond (except ash).

For skin with a warm undertone, you can choose shades of wheat, caramel, honey, and cappuccino.

What color will refresh the face of brunettes and brown-haired women

For brown-eyed, green-eyed, and blue-eyed beauties with fair or dark skin, warm rich colors of dark chocolate, coffee, and cocoa are suitable. It is better to avoid monochrome black.

What hair color rejuvenates redheads after 40

If you are a "sunny bunny" by nature with green eyes and pale skin, choose amber, caramel, and golden copper shades. But for dark-skinned girls with copper hair color and brown eyes, chocolate, dark brown and coffee colors are more suitable.
