Blue and Yellow-Based Hair Color Swatch Examples

A student of our online course, Yvette Frontany, is a hairdresser, colorist, and color educator. She wanted some help categorizing hair color into blue-based and yellow-based colors and sent some swatches we have labeled below.

Hair color change when dyeing your hair depends on several factors, including your natural hair color, the color of the dye you use, and the condition of your hair. The hair that will look best on you will match your undertone whether that is blue-based or yellow-based. Part of the skill of hair colorist is knowing how hair dye and lightener will react with the hair color to create the final look.

Here are some hair swatches to help train your eye to blue and yellow-based colors. Thank you Yvette for your questions!
