This time of year, some women consider going darker with their hair color, and there’s a simple way to tell if this change will suit you. Hair becomes two to three shades darker when wet. Wet your hair, put on your daytime makeup and comb the hair next to your face. You will instantly know if your complexion looks brighter, healthier or clearer. Then, reevaluate your complexion once the hair is dry. If you prefer the way your wet hair looks against your skin, it is a good indication that it will probably look better darker. I frequently do this easy test at my salon, especially on blondes, to show how much better a client’s skin can look with a little more contrast between her complexion and hair color.
