Undertone Or No Undertone: How To Pick Your Next Hair Colour

Master the art of your Hair Colour selection by understanding the differences in each Hair Colours undertones.

When it comes to Hair Colouring, the world is your oyster. While creating the My Hairdresser Colour range our vision was to have a plethora of pigments for our customers to choose from, with the unique ability to blend two Colours and create a personalised shade that was perfect for you. We don't like limitations, and we wanted our Colour range to reflect that, so when dreaming of your next Colour here's how to pick whether or not an undertone is for you.

The My Hairdresser Colour range consists of 3 different styles of Colour:

Natural shades are pure Brunette or Blonde Hair Colours with no reflects. All Hair Colours have a Natural Brunette or Blonde base that determines the lightness of a Colour. The undertone, or reflect, is added to give the Hair Colour a Cool or Warm style.

Hair Colours with a single undertone, have one pure reflecting pigment that gives the Hair Colour its defining hue. These are Hair Colours like 9.1 Light Ash Blonde or 5.3 Golden Brown, where Ash and Gold are the undertones.

Hair Colours with two undertones have a primary and secondary reflect giving them a bigger, more dominant Colour style. These are Hair Colours like 7.46 Rich Copper Red or 5.53 Chocolate Brown, where Copper Red and Mahogany Gold are the undertones.

So how do you decide which one is right for you? Discover whether a Natural, Cool or Warm Hair Colour shade meets your needs.
