How to find your perfect hair colour

The best way to find your perfect hair colour is by finding shades that flatter your features, work well with your skin tone and complement your personal style.


There’s more to skin tone than simply light/medium/dark. You can determine whether you have cool, warm or neutral tones by looking at the colours of the veins on the inside of your arm. If they appear blue or purple, then you’re probably cool toned, if they’re green then you’re likely to have a warm skin tone and if they’re not obviously one or the other, then you have a neutral tone.

Eye colour

Certain hair colours can intensify your eye colour, so if you really want your eyes to pop, choose a colour that complements them.

Eye colour: Blue

Recommended hair colours: Icy champagne blondes, cool-toned brunettes and natural-looking reds.

Eye colour: Green

Recommended hair colours: Vibrant coppers and chestnut browns.

Eye colour: Hazel

Recommended hair colours: Chestnut and chocolate browns and rich auburns.

Eye colour: Brown

Recommended hair colours: Golden caramels and dark espresso browns.

Your style

One of the reasons that hair plays such a big part in our identity is that it’s a way of showing our personality. Are you someone who likes to keep up with the latest fashion trends or do you prefer to stand out from the crowd? Grungy or classic, out-there or minimal, think of your hair as an extension of the rest of your outfit and find a hue that feels the most ‘you’.

How much does it cost to dye your hair?

Depending on location, the level of your colourist and the type of colour treatment you want (e.g. tint, highlights or balayage), the price of dyeing your hair can vary massively. As a rough guideline, you can expect to pay in the region of:

Full head tint  £40-£80

Half head highlights £80-£130

Full head highlights £100-£200

Balayage £100-£250

Note: In some salons, a complimentary blow dry is included in the price of colour treatments but others will charge an additional fee for this, so make sure to check when booking.
