Here’s why: As we get older, our complexions become duller and paler, and having the wrong hair color can worsen the effect by washing you out, says Kari Hill, a colorist at Meche Salon in Los Angeles and Haircolor Ambassador for Loreal Paris USA. Why it works: “As we age, cell renewal slows down, making skin less luminous than it once was,” says Diaz.
This vibrant color gives the appearance of younger, radiant skin because it reflects light onto the face the same way healthy, youthful skin would. You may unsubscribe at any time. Why it works: Multi-tonal highlights complement cool, blue undertones in the skin and brighten the face, says Hill, making it a great option for fair-skinned folks looking for a more youthful look without going too far outside their comfort zone. The mix of golden and honey tones mimics a healthy glow and gives your hair the dimension and shine of thicker, more youthful hair.
Why it works: Light copper flatters this skin tone by softening the appearance of lines and other signs of aging around the eyes, says Red Door Spa National Training Director of Hair Amy Michleb. Why it works: “As we age, we naturally lose volume in our face, creating areas of concavity and hollowness,” says Diaz. Having lighter pieces of hair that frame the face draws the eyes away from any of those hollow areas, particularly in the cheeks.
