LETTER TO GRAY-HAIRED AUTUMNS

Dear Silver or Gray-Haired Autumn,

If you choose not to color your hair in favor of letting it stay natural, you will find that a few of your Autumn colors may not look as harmonious as they were with your brown, dark blonde or red hair.  Guess what!  You may now add some Winter and Spring colors to make up for the colors you eliminate.

 

Eliminate Beige, Mustard, Pumpkin and any color near your face that you feel does not look great with your hair.  You may add the colors listed below as guidelines for additional colors.

 

Be sure you wear lipstick colors that are a tad brighter or deeper than before since gray hair has less contrast with your skin and you don’t want to look “washed out”.

 

The colors below will be complemented by your normal Autumn makeup.  You may now add lip and cheek colors in Mocha, Salmon and Brown-Burgundy.

 

If your hair is silver, white, or mostly gray, you will find that silver or pewter jewelry will now look great.  In fact, your gold earrings may clash with your hair.  Two-tone gray hair (with lots of brown or red still mixed in) can wear gold or silver.  Earrings of mixed gold and silver are a good investment as silver will pick up the new tones in your hair, while the gold allows you to wear gold bracelets, buttons or other gold accessories.  Enjoy the new you!
