Re: To dye or not to dye? - October 24th 2010, 03:29 PM

Haha your hair color is pretty close to my natural hair color. kinda the reddish undertones and stuff.

I like it the way it is, and im sure it would look great if you dye it aswell. But if you dye it, please please PLEASE get it done professionaly.. Like, honestly. I made the mistake of dying my hair soooo many times just by getting the little kids from rite aid or places like that, and my hair is ruined. its finally almost fully grown out to my natural color.


You could get low lights and highlights, that just kinda amp up your natural color. again, i highly suggest a salon. instead of using money on at home dye, save it. put it in a little jar or somthing and save up to get it done at a salon. itll be worth it.

hope this helps (:

i think your hair is amazing just the way it is, but i also think you could totally rock out with a light-medium brown. or, you could live on the wild side and get pink streaks or something.
either way, i think your hair looks beautiful. so, i like it the way it is, but i also think if you want to change things up there are a lot of different options that would look great on you.



Great works are performed not by strength, but by perseverance.

Your hair is gorgeous.
If you were to do something, you should get some streaks or lowlights.
You should ask your stylist about different colors that you can try.

I adore your hair colour! I'd get some high lights & low lights, but that's about it.
I really regret dying my hair - now I've done it once, I have to do it all the time and the colour fades almost instantly anyway.

Would you want to do something extreme or go a completely different colour? If you're nervous, you could go a couple of shades lighter/darker to begin with. My hair i naturally a mousy brown, and when I went blonde, rather than bleaching it straight away I gradually got lighter. It definitely stopped it being such a shock :P

Thanks guys.

The reason I wanted to dye it is just that I want to look different, not like me anymore. I'm going wait a few weeks anyway until I get paid so I have a while to think it over still

Its beautiful now. But I honestly believe that you could dye your hair any colour and you'd still look beautiful.

what sort of red is it? I used a permenant dye to get mine bright post-box red, and it took me a year to get rid of it; it shows through other colours if you re-dye it It should be alright if it's semi-permenant, but you'd probably be lft with a reddish tint to your hair.

I dyed the back of my hair red and it went ginger/light brown over time. I think all those colours would suit you
