Cognitive theorists will claim the best way to make a decision is to flip a coin. ("You'll know the right answer as soon as it's in the air.") We say: try telling that to someone trying to choose their next hair color — when the limit to shade options and techniques simply does not exist. It's no wonder "what color should I dye my hair?" has become just as popular a question as, "should I get bangs?"
That's why the next best option in picking your perfect hue is looking to other important factors, like your individual personality. "Your personality is so important when choosing a hair color because your hair is the bow on top of who you are," said Frédéric Fekkai, veteran hairstylist and founder of Fekkai brands. "You have to consider every aspect of your life from your physical features — face shape, underlying skin tone — to your daily routine — for example, do you rush in the mornings? Even what you do for a living can be helpful, as not many lawyers if any have pink hair."
Whether you're a go-getter, risk-taker, or infinitely more low-key, this easy quiz will help you pinpoint which exact hair color is best for you according to your personality type. Between money piece highlights or "shadow roots" (and everything in between) there's still much to choose from — but it definitely beats a coin toss, every time.
