3 Amazing Hair Colour Charts From Your Most Trusted Hair Brands August 21, 2015

Getting your hair colored is a big decision. Don’t think I’m trying to be dramatic; it’s true. The color you pick is going to stay with you for a minimum of 45 days. Of course, this depends on which brand of color you use, how well you take care of it, how often you condition it, what kind of hair care products you use and other such things. It also depends on how fast your hair grows. So, it only makes sense to be absolutely sure about the color that you dye your hair in.

While picking a hair color on a whim may work sometimes, mostly it is a well-judged and analyzed decision that proves to yield a better result. So, let us try to understand what exactly these different colors are and how they are devised.

The actual process of devising and defining hair colors take place in secret laboratories and have millions of dollars invested in it. But what we see when we look at a hair color chart is basically a version, a standard, or a combination of the four basic hair colors: blonde, brown, red and black. The different shades and tones of hair colors are merely slight tweaks of these four parent colors. Take a color like burgundy for example. What is it? It’s just a fusion of deep red with a deep brown, isn’t it?

Now, let’s take a look at a couple of hair colour charts from renowned brands. It will help you understand and identify the combinations and fusions of the four basic hair colors.
