Knockout!
Choosing the right hair color

MANILA, Philippines?The affair, on its seventh year in the Philippines, is held in 29 other countries. It was established in the United Kingdom in 1958.

L?Oreal Professionnel continues to set standards for advance product research in the beauty industry, giving consumers the best salon products and services, plus world-class events that inspire hairdressers to hone their skills and aim to be the best.

L?Oreal Color Trophy, recently held at the Grand Ballroom of Crowne Plaza, proved how far Filipino talent has grown in terms of innovative technical artistry and expertise with cut, color and style.

Since most Filipinas have black to dark brown hair and many of us do love coloring our tresses, here are some tips on picking the right hue.

Opt for brown hair if you are a low-maintenance kind of girl. Dark hair reflects light best and hair breakage won?t be as obvious. You will need less hot oil and treatments since your hair won?t look dry and brittle.

You may, however, want to stay away from hairspray and go for hair serum to add some fab sheen.

If Lindsay Lohan?s flaming red hair excites you, check your skin tone first before getting a similar crown. Women who get away with this attention-commanding color are either fair-skinned or dark, and never in between.

Avoiding sun exposure and harsh shampoos will lengthen the radiance of this color. Hot oil and conditioning are a must, while blow-drying is something to be avoided.

Does coloring your mane blonde or adding blonde highlights sound appealing to you? If yes, get ready to sit for long hours in the salon and enduring a bit of pain. Since your hair is much darker than your color choice and blonde is way lighter, bleaching will be involved.

Blonde is a very high-maintenance color, since you will need regular touch-ups to avoid dark roots, and visits to hair spas since you will be prone to having dry hair, which is never attractive no matter what color it is.

I think getting three shades of blonde would be more attractive since it will add dimension to your tresses, and you won?t end up looking like you?re wearing a wig.

Makeup to match your hair

Brunettes should pile up on black mascara. Also, don?t be afraid of using fun jewel tones on your eyes. Balance this look with a natural-colored blush and nude lippies.

For redheads, light shades or no eye shadow at all are best, so as not to deflect attention from your locks. A pink light gloss would be perfect for your ?do.

Unlike brunettes, blondes should go easy on the eyes. A curl lash would suffice, matched with the most exciting shade of red for that extra sex appeal.

No matter what shade you?d like to pick, it?s important to have fun with your ?do. With L?Oreal?s wide range of shades and hair experts, looking great is just a salon appointment away!
