Gahhh, darker, or lighter? - January 11th 2010, 01:24 AM

Yup. I want my hair to be darker, and richer, pretty much. BUT I don't know if it'll look better darker or lighter. And I don't know how I should go about doing that..like should I just dye it a darker brown? Should I add red tones? Blonde tones? Ugh. I'm going to the salon this week, and I've got to decide. Pronto. Opinions would be greatly appreciated!

Red tones would look better than blond tones, they might suit you with a darker brown as well.

Judging by how your hair shines in the light there, I'd say darker, but hey, what do I know? :P

Our complexion and hair color are very similar, so judging on what I would do for myself - red tones If you had a light brown as your hair color, blond would be the way to go, but dark brown hair requires a red tone in order to look good. For dying it completely - I would say darker But that one is more a matter of personal opinion there, if you like it better lighter then just go for that

I personally love your hair the way it is. lol. But if you want to change it then I too feel that darker with red would look better


I'm still alive.
Must have been a miracle
It's been one hell of a ride
Destination still unkown
It's a fact of life: If you make one wrong move with a gun to your head
You better walk the line or you'll be left for dead.


I'm a runaway train on a broken track
I'm the ticker on the bomb that you can't turn back
Thats right.
I got away with it all and I'm still alive.
Let the end of the world come tumbling down.
I'll be the last man standing on the ground
As long as hot blood runs through my veins
I'm still alive.

Hmmm. I've had blondeish highlights before, and they just looked too light for me. I've got some seriously dark eyebrows lol.
I don't want to put too much red in it. But I'm scared that if I dye it all one shade it'll just look...blah.

Oh, thankyou so much! I loove really chocolatey brunette colors, so I think I'm going to opt with the darker hair. I'm going to ask my hair stylist for her opinion too - she's blunt enough to save me from any total disasters


I'm really, really, really pale right now. I don't know if the darker hair will wash me out or make it better.
