Know when to go lighter or darker. The rule is as follows: For permanent dye, choose a color a smidge darker than what you want because of the strong developer, says Ionato. With semipermanent dye, however, err on the lighter side of the color you're looking to achieve. "Semipermanent formulas don't have a developer, meaning they get darker and darker the longer you leave them in your hair," says Ionato. "It's safer to choose a color that's a bit lighter from the get_go."
Ash Brown : Going ash brown is a great option if you want to try but not commit to the gray craze. Ideal for cool skin tones with pink undertones, ash brown has bits of blue and gray that give the color its ashen, nearly_gray base.
