can yellow work for gray hair?

If you have gray, silver, or platinum hair, you’ve probably heard that wearing yellow is not the best for your hair color.  I tend to disagree.

Yellow can work for gray hair if you ensure it works with your own coloring. 

First off, wearing a color suited to work with just your hair — and not considering your skin tone and eye color(s) — is wrong.

Secondly, not all yellows are bad.  Myth dispelled? Well, you decide.

I’ve adjusted the yellow sweater the woman is wearing to come up with four different options which are based on my Color Types.

(A) Animated: a bright/saturated version many call sunflower,

(B) Dynamic: a toasted version similar to mustard,

(C) Clear: tinted version similar to a yellow rose

(D) Subdued: a toned and lightened version similar to a butter color. 

Some work and some don’t based on her silver coloring. Which one(s) do you like?

There is no right or wrong answer…I’m curious to know what you think!
