Once you’ve discovered which colors suit you best, it’s a matter of matching that up with the colors you like the best. Don’t forget that rules are made to be broken and that goes for colors too.
If your skin has a warm undertone, you’ll look best in ivory, warm red, yellow, orange, brown, and yellow-green. If you have cool undertones, you’ll look better in green, blue, purple, pink, red, and blue-greens.
Most strawberry blonds are going to be warm-toned and will look better in green, yellow, orange, and warm reds. This doesn’t mean that you can’t wear pink or blue, just that you will have to be careful about what shade of pink or blue you wear. A pale pink, for example, would probably look better on you than a hot pink.

Good haircare starts with a good cut. Make sure you get regular trims and apply a hair mask once every two weeks. If you’re going to spend a lot of time in the sun, make sure you cover your hair with a scarf or wide-brimmed hat.
Invest in sulfate-free shampoo. It may cost more than your normal shampoo however, you’ll probably find that it lasts you a bit longer as well. Rinse with cool water as hot water can lead to frizz. If you still want a hot shower, rinse your hair in cool water afterwards.
Keep your hair washing to a minimum and always use protective products with heated stylers. Curling irons, straighteners, and blow dryers are all notorious for damaging hair so dry your hair naturally whenever you can. Also, use a dry shampoo in between washes.
