With so many hair colors out there, what is the best one for you? Is it Jen Aniston’s highlights? Is it the beautiful red Rene Russo wore in The Thomas Crown Affair? How about the shiny, nearly black shade of Courtney Cox’s long locks?

When deciding on the right hair color for yourself, there are a number of options to consider. As a professional stylist since (yikes!) 1984, I can help, even without seeing your hair. While choosing the right color can be practically, emotionally, and financially based, you should actually consider all of these when making the right choice. Let’s get started!

Let me begin by saying that I am a current working stylist, behind the chair five days a week. Most of my clientele pay me to color their hair, while I have a few that color it themselves at home. I will address both of these options here, and help you to ask the right questions to get to the best choice for you.

I believe it’s best to have your hair colored by a professional. You’re not surprised are you? Here’s why: I’ve seen many “home” hair colors go wrong, and I assure you that it’s more cost effective to have someone like me do it right the first time. Corrective color can be very costly, not to mention the damage that can be done by having to color more than once in a short span of time.

If you absolutely must color at home, I recommend using deposit-only color, (which contains no ammonia and doesn’t lighten the hair), and choosing a color that is at least one shade lighter than you think you want the first time. Don’t trust the picture on the box! It’s not what it appears most of the time. It’s much easier to darken the color if it’s too light than the reverse.
