    Default Blonde or Brunette- Help me decide!

    I have major issues with liking to change my hair ALL the time. Long to short, extensions, dark, light. I guess I get bored. I'm a blonde now, but I am starting to get the need to change. If I go back to another color it will be awhile before I can go to blonde again. It took us 6 months to get it to the blonde I like.

    So, thoughts? Some people like the blonde, others hate it on me. I like it a lot. Like I said though, I like to change things up and I don't want to cut it again.

    Here's a link. I think you do have to be logged into Facebook to see it. I'm not 100%. I hope everyone can see them. In there I have super dark, to blonde. (And I am even blonder now. An ashy blonde with almost platinum tiny highlights. So lots of dimension.)

    Oh, and there may be some on my photography site for those who can't see the FB ones. (There is a blonde on under my bio page.)

    I like the color you have in pics 6 and 7 out of 11 in your profile pics. The color is very flattering to your skin tone.

    I think it looks great! Especially with the color of your shirt in that one, rich jewel tones, lovely!

    I agree! If you're getting it done at a salon, ask if they can dye your eyebrows too. When I went reddish brown the eyebrows made a BIG difference!

    I've been dark dark black brunette and platinum blonde at different stages of my life. Streaked, frosted, etc. And at each time, I did it because of what I wanted to look like, not what someone else wanted me to look like.

    Wear your hair the length and color that makes you feel best. What others think is not that important. Although you husband seems to have a good solution, but I'd not recommend it for you!

    I like the lighter brown, but what's important is what you like. What color made you feel the best, and happiest?

    I always change because I want to. Never because of someone else. I've had people tell me flat out they HATE my hair blonde. I just laugh and say "oh well, I LOVE it!" I just ask because I want a change, but I'm stuck as to what to do. I figured asking what people thought looked/liked best would help give me some direction.

    I have to laugh looking at the pics. I've done some very drastic changes. I wish I could make them more often but my hair stylist would have a fit. I have had my hair break off before (not with my current person) and that is not something I'd want to repeat. I was convinced I was going to have an inch of hair left. It was awful. So, these days I have to try to be more patient and keep colors longer. Which stinks.

    The one that everyone here seems to like best was an accident. I had gone really blonde, I hated it because they did not make it ashy but an ugly brassy color (no amount of toner fixed it). So they dyed it bright red then put the brown over it. What a day that was. As it faded it looked better, which is what is in the pic.

    You look a lot like Zara Phillips (and I think she is beautiful)! I like both colors, maybe the blonde a little more.

    The caramel color is very nice on you and makes your skin glow warm and healthy. I feel the light blonde really washes you out, so my vote is the caramel color.
    Rhode Islands are red;
    North Hollands are blue.

    I love the colour in this one: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...size=506%2C550


    I'd like to do that myself! I'm naturally blonde, currently red and short. I too get SO bored! I usually cut before I colour, myself.

    I liked the warm brown on you. I would start with low lights all over so you can keep some light tones of the blonde in your hair but the low lights will help warm up your face!

    I really like Pic 11 of your profile pics. You're lucky being able to be blonde or brunette, these days my hair colouring is to cover up the greys
    where am I, what day is it, am I still having a good time?
