  1. Before you start bleaching your hair – make sure your hair is nourished and in the best possible shape. I recommend ALL my clients use a Monat brand Shampoo/Cond before starting as they're naturally based and truly helps to nourish and restore your hair to make sure its in its best state possible before you start applying bleach. Trust me, it will save you a lot of money in the long run. If you want to learn more about Monat, read this section on my website: ellebangs.com/ellebang-monat/ – Yes – I am affiliated with Monat, because I truly believe in their products.

  2. I am stil struggling finding out my skin tone, I see blue and green vains. I think I am neutral, I own gold and silver jewerly and got already a lot of different haircolors.. But as you also mentioned, I am still not sure and trying to find out and be sure if I am neutral undertoned.

  3. I love that you do these information videos. Really helps when you're in the hairdresser's to avoid that blank stare when they ask you what you want. I can imagine it must be difficult for them when I tell them to just do what they think would suit me!
    I struggle so much because I think I have very cool skin. It's fair with a pinkish undertone. But my eyes are my favourite asset about myself, being a really golden hazel and black hair brings them out so much. However, it totally makes my skin look like death. Lighter hair makes me look more alive, but makes my eyes look so blah.

  4. I have cool toned skin. Very light, but not quite ivory. I have rosacea. My eyes are blue and my hair is between light and medium brown with a lot of red tone to it in the sun. I feel as though nothing looked good on me.

  5. i dont know my damn hair colour! its like a mix of blonde and brown, blonde newr the frindge , top of forhead and brown in the middle parts with some blonde, and blonde in some sections at the below and brownish grey at the top wtf is this colour, blonde? brown?, ashbrown?, ashblonde im so confused…i dont know my skin colour either its pretty pale but apparently im a neutral skin tone cause i dnt get sunburnt or tanned… and every colour i think suits me well…my skin.. i dont know my eye colour either its like greyish blueish yellowish

  6. SERIES OF DREAMS IS A OLD BOB DYLAN SONG. SINCE YOUR VIDEOS ARE A SERIES OF EDUCATIONAL TOOLS TO HELP US REACH OUR DREAMS AS WE MOVE FORWARD. YOU AURA IS GREAT. I DONT REALLY SEE AURA COLORS ON ANYONE I TEND TO HEAR THEM IN YOUR VOICE AND YOU COME ACROSS SO GENUINELY AS SOMEONE WHO REALLY CARES AND WANTS TO HELP US.

  7. I wish I could pull off blonde hair.. I look like the living dead washed out with blonde. A hairdresser once gave me ash highlights, I looked 20 years older- charged me $250 when I asked her for "golden caramel" highlights and gave me ash brown. That was 2 years ago and since I gave up on blonde. But since I'm graying very fast now, I'm getting tired of covering them up once a month. I know I'm neutral with warm undertones (MAC foundation NC20). Gonna keep watching your videos hopefully I find out soon.

  8. When I was a kid I was told I was a cool (summer, winter; dark hair, blue eyes, tanning skin). But now that I'm older, some tan has just "stained" my skin over the decades & that leaves me a bit confused.
    I've always wanted to go blonde (I did once, the stylist did warm golden, it was ugly on me & washed me out) & I've just sort of accepted that I may have to wait until I go white…then deposit the blonde.
    Plus – the UPKEEP! Eeeek!

  9. I had the hardest time figuring out my face shape even after looking through other articles etc, I was confused if I am heart or square. After watching your video on face shape on drawing on the mirror, that's how I realized that mines heart shape. Very easy to grasp your infors. Please show us some more tones with skin colour so we will know how to differentiate. Especially on tan skin. Also a chic hairstyle to wear at night for dinners etc..

  10. I actually think exactly the opposite often works best!! You should match up to your natural non made-up complexion and not to your painted, bronzed or tanned face. Warm skin tones look better with cooler hair colours. The contrast helps to balance the yellow or pink tones and frame the face. If you're a balanced skin tone (ie not especially warm or cool) then you have more choice. Im very yellow based (warm). I do NOT suit a warm hair colour. Cool black is best and is my natural colour or else a cool dark brown. I'd look awful and jaundiced in a warm brown hair colour if I were to follow the supposedly professional advice here! My mum's hairdresser did the same thing and I argued the point. When he changed her colour to cool brown he admitted I was right!!

  11. I thought I was cool tone but after you saying that I really felt the same way. I think I'm neutral.
    Thinking of making the switch to blond. Dealing with this red/gold.
    You look beautiful by the way !

  12. Great Video. Very Helpful.

    New to coloring but think I am warm toned because I have olive mediterranean skin. I believe my only options are dark brown or one shade lighter. Would that be regular brown or chocolate brown ? I don't want any red highlights either. Anyway of getting rid of the red ?

  13. Elle your videos are so informative! I've been reading that if you're warm toned you should have cool tone hair so the color isn't fighting with your face and vice versa for cool skin. It makes your skin and eyes pop? I've always thought and heard different! Is this a new trend or something?!
