We don’t know about you, but our hair and makeup routines could never be complete without the right makeup palette. Why? Because it’s much easier to apply complimentary makeup shades and tones when they are selected by professionals and packaged together in a one-size-fits-all palette. So why do we pick new hair color shades without the chance to see the beautiful colors laid out in a complimentary fashion? Lucky for us, hair color palettes are here, and our favorite makeup shades inspired the colors.


For fun hair and makeup pairing, we recommend you start with a hair color palette made up of hair glosses. With a gloss, you can change your color just as easily as you change your makeup—and with the same level of commitment. A hair gloss, like Shades EQ, is a 20-minute service that you can get as often as every 20 washes! Play up the makeup you already love with your hair color, or find the makeup shades you didn’t know you needed.
