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 Personalities.
- (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.
But the real key is ensuring it aligns with her own color personality. Meaning, if she is mostly introverted, the bright yellow in A will never work for her.
If she is considered warm and friendly, she would enjoy wearing the mustard in B or even the tinted yellow in C.
