  • Your Perfect Haircolor!

    For your special night you want to look perfect. Your hair is your crowning glory so find out what colors look good with your skintone.

    Skin Base: Light/Fair
    Tone: Peach
    Avoid ash tones as they have a tendency to make light skin even lighter and look washed out. Look for colors that are more vibrant as they will make your skin look radiant. Go for reds of any kind, golden blondes with reddish and caramel highlights. Warm coppers and browns will look great if they have a ginger or warm reddish tone.

    Skin Base: Light/Fair
    Tone: Pink
    Avoid red tones as they will give your skin a ruddy look and only emphasize the redness in the skin. The ash colors will work with the pink tones in the skin as they offset the pink tone to soften the skin. Warm tones in the browns and blondes will complement and give a sun kissed glow to the skin. Try cool platinum, sandy, buttery, and most dark blondes. If you want to go brown, most will work as long as you do not let them get too warm or red.

    Skin Base: Medium
    Tone: Pink
    Ash tones and cool reds (reds with caramel highlights or auburn reds) will complement best. Always remember, when trying to complement pink skin tone, it is best to stay away from vibrant colors and brassy or gold tones. This means your best colors may be light and dark auburns, frosty or sandy blondes, and caramel browns.

    Skin Base: Medium
    Tone: Olive/Yellow
    Warm reds and golds look fabulous here! This skin tone pops when paired with colors which are more vibrant. Spice up your look with colors like cayenne or pumpkin reds, or butterscotch blondes. You can go with subtle or heavy highlighted colors. Rich colors look wonderful here as well. Try dark brown or ginger brown. Warm and gold tones work best. Basically, this skin tone can wear just about anything, but avoid ash tones!

    Skin Base: Medium
    Tone: Neutral
    You will find that most tones look good on this skin tone as well. There are little restrictions here. Try to avoid ash tones as they will only make neutral skin look bland. Since the sky is the limit here, you can have fun and experiment with any color!

    naomi-campbell-picture-5.jpgNaomi Campbell
    Skin Base: Dark
    Tone: Red
    Natural tones work best to bring out the radiance in this skin tone. In this case, warm and neutral tones will work to enhance the natural color in the skin. Colors like dark, medium and lights browns (keep them on the reddish side), honey ginger, medium reds, and auburns will work great here. Definitely avoid the ash colors and brassy or gold tones.

    Skin Base: Dark
    Tone: Olive
    Avoid ash tones as they do not work well with dark or olive skin. You want to compliment the skin and not neutralize it. However, you will find that most tones look good. Olive is complimented nicely by most colors. Have fun with this and go from blonde to brunette in a flash! The important thing here is to take advantage of your ability to wear any color.

    Top 10 Influential Fashion Films


    This video is about a street poll on the influential role film has played in fashion. Stella McCartney, Paul Smith, Vivienne Westwood and other UK designers such as Lulu Guinness, Philip Treacy and Oswald Boateng join design legend Giorgio Armani and international talent such as Marc Jacobs, Zac Posen, John Rocha and Michael Kors to give their opinions. The overwhelming winner was Breakfast at Tiffany’s in which Givenchy established one of the most important wardrobe staples: the ‘LBD’ (little black dress) and the large black sunglasses. It is interesting to note that the majority of these iconic films, are vintage, proving the classics in style will be influencing fashion for decades to come.

    The Top Ten
    1. Breakfast at Tiffany’s
    2. American Gigolo
    3. Funny Face
    4. Bonnie and Clyde
    5. Desperately Seeking Susan
    6. My Fair Lady
    7. Pulp Fiction
    8. The Great Gatsby
    9. Thomas Crown Affair
    10. The Graduate
