10 time proven and trusted hair color tips for 430

Whether you're going for a bold new shade or just want to make sure your hair is in good condition, these 10 tips are guaranteed to help.

  • Don't be afraid to try new colors.

  • If you've been dying your hair the same color for years, consider adding a little flair with highlights or lowlights. These require less maintenance than other coloring techniques and can be used as an easy way to add dimension without committing completely.

Are you craving a change in your hair color?

((You're going to want to give a lot of thought to this question, because your answer will tell you exactly how long it will be between appointments.))

  • Are you craving a change in your hair color?

  • What’s the last thing that happened in your life? (If you just had a baby or got married, for example.)

  • How do you currently wear your hair? (Curly or straight?)

  • Are there any products that work well with what you have now and can help maintain that look until it’s time for an appointment with me!

Be mindful of your lifestyle.

You should also be mindful of your lifestyle. While a drastic change may be tempting, it’s important to consider that you might not have time for frequent touch-ups or may not want to commit to a new color if you are an athlete.

If you work in a professional setting and want people to take you seriously, black hair isn’t the best option either.

Choose the right salon for you.

If you have the choice, it's best to choose a salon that is close to where you live. If you live in an urban area and not too far from downtown, that might mean a salon near your house.

If you're out in the country, your options will be limited. But if there's no other option than driving 20 minutes away for color services, then it may be worth it to do so!

Of course, convenience is also important too. You don't want someone coloring your hair who lives far away and has never seen what shade of brown suits your complexion best—you'll want someone who knows exactly what works for you personally before they start mixing up their concoctions!

In addition, make sure this person has a good reputation as well; many salons and stylists will advertise themselves as trusted by celebrities or big name brands (which may not always be true), but some people may just say whatever gets them business--so ask around first before handing over any cash!

Make sure the color is vibrant and rich, not brassy and harsh.

Brassy hair color is that weird orange-y, yellow-y tone that happens when your hair gets exposed to too much heat or sunlight. It also has a tendency to look like dishwater blonde on darker shades of hair.

The fix? A toner! Toning is the process of adding in a few extra steps after coloring your locks, and it's a great way to avoid brassy results.

After you've colored your locks with whatever color you want (say, 430), add another layer of dye that's just one shade darker than your base coat. This will neutralize any unwanted brassy tones and give you gorgeous results every time!

Getting the perfect shade isn't as easy as it looks.

Choosing your perfect shade of hair color is not as easy as you might think. You should choose a color that makes you feel good, compliments your skin tone and eye color, compliments your hair texture and lifestyle.

It is important to go to a professional stylist for advice on the best shades for you. You can also take online quizzes to determine which shades are most flattering for you, but keep in mind that these quizzes often contain inaccurate information or don't take into account other factors such as your lifestyle or skin tone.

Some shades will look better than others on you.

  • Some shades will look better than others on you.

Color has a major effect on the mood and personality of the person wearing it. It should complement your skin tone, eye color, hair type and lifestyle. For example, if you have fair skin with freckles and blue or green eyes then you should avoid reds because they will make your features appear washed out.

If your favorite color is yellow then maybe choose an orange shade instead of an apple red for a more flattering contrast to both your skin tone and eye color.

Give yourself a break between touch ups.

Give yourself a break between touch ups.

It's important to give your mane time to rest between color appointments. If you're trying to maintain your 430, give it at least three months before re-homing yourself in the salon chair for another go round.

Not only will this minimize damage from repeated processing and bleaching, but it also allows you enough time for new growth that might need a touch up as well (it happens).

If your stylist is telling you not to come back in until next month or so, believe them! They are trying their best not to ruin all of the hard work they put into making sure your hair looks amazing when they send you on your way with fresh color and highlights.

You don't have to commit to just one color.

You don't have to commit to just one color.

From brunette to blonde, from dark to light, from one color to two colors or even more—you can go with your heart and express yourself in whichever way you want! Feel free to experiment and play around with different shades until you find something that fits your personality perfectly.

Shade changes are gradual, so be patient.

  • Shade changes are gradual, so be patient.

It's easy to think that your hair needs more color in order to look good, but this isn't always the case. Sudden changes can lead to one of two results: either you'll get a new color that looks great on you (leading you to think that it's all about getting the right shade), or you'll end up with an awkward transition between your previous color and whatever shade of dye is on its way in—which makes even diehard fans of unnatural coloring cringe at the sight of it.

Since most people don't want their hair looking like they overdosed on Pepto-Bismol (even if they do), it's best not to mess around with drastic shifts in tone too often and aim for gradual ones instead—such as going from platinum blonde highlights into dirty brown underneath them

Have an open relationship with your colorist.

The first thing to keep in mind is that your colorist is your partner in this process. They will help you find the right color for you and make sure it works with your skin tone and hair texture. They can also help with finding a good shade, tone, gloss and any other details they think would be helpful to get the look you want.

A good relationship with your colorist is key to great results!

One of the biggest secrets to getting great color is to find a good relationship with your colorist. A good colorist will always be honest with you, no matter how many times you've been in their chair before and they know what works on you.

They'll help you find the right shade, product and tools for your hair type and style (and don't forget to ask them if they think any ends need trimming!).

430 Hair Color for Brunettes

430 hair color is a beautiful brunette shade that's perfect for anyone with warm, brown-y undertones.

It will give you the most flattering look on hair with orange or red undertones because it pulls out those shades and makes them pop, while also blending with your natural color to create a harmonious look.

For this reason, 430 is one of the most popular shades for brunettes!


We hope these tips were helpful to you and that they can help get you closer to your dream hair color.

Remember, it often takes a few tries before you find the right shade of hair color for yourself. Just remember that this is a journey and there will be some trial and error along the way!
