How to Transform Your Look with the Right Hair Color

How to Transform Your Look with the Right Hair Color

Switching up your hair color is one of the most effective ways to update your look without a lot of effort. But even though coloring is a relatively simple task, it's crucial to do some homework beforehand to make sure the hue you choose is the right one for you.

The wrong color can look unnatural and make you seem washed out, tired, and older, while the right color gives you the fresh, vibrant look you’re going for.  Finding the right product is also key.

How to Find YOUR Color
It’s got nothing to do with the latest trends, and everything to do with your skin’s undertones.

For the best shades to complement — and not clash with — your skin tone, look to the inside of your wrist in natural light. People with veins that are green in appearance have a warm undertone, while blue or purple veins indicate cool undertones.

Another method comes from San Diego-based stylist Cheng Tan, who asks her clients what kind of jewelry looks better on them.

“If you like golds, you should pick a warm tone,” she says. This includes golden blondes, honey browns and caramels. Those who like silver jewelry, tend to be in the cooler skin zone, and should go for colors like ash blonde, black or auburn brown.

Now comes the tricky part: Finding the right product. Cheap, drugstore brands can leave hair looking like dull straw, but regular salon visits for coloring and touch-ups can be pricey.  So, for us, that’s where eSalon comes in.

How eSalon Works
eSalon custom prepares individually blended, high-end, salon-quality hair color for clients to use at home.

The eSalon system allows you to find your exact match, with a short set of fun questions formulated by eSalon’s top colorists. These professionals then prepare a formula to match your hair characteristics. The high-quality color is mixed, then shipped right to your doorstep within three business days.

It costs less than $20 per application — slightly more than drugstore brands, and MUCH LESS than you'll pay at a salon.

Right now, eSalon is offering new clients treatments for only $10.00 (that's a 50% savings), plus $4.95 shipping and handling. Every eSalon order also features a 100% satisfaction guarantee; if you're not satisfied, they'll refund the entire amount — including shipping.
