Not sure about color - February 13th 2011, 06:04 PM

I've been blonde my whole life and I really want to try something new. I'm thinking about an auburn or a brown color. Any suggestion on which and what shade?

I think maybe I light brown? Just so it's not a drastic change? Yet still a change?

I would start with a light shade so its not too dramatic right away and if you don't like it you can put it back Have fun!

Red is always a good choice. And not just because I'm trying to turn as many THers as possible into redheads.

I'm a fake redhead Well, not so much anymore. It's kinda strawberry blonde now.
But anyways. Nicoleeee, I love your blonde hairrrr! Whatever you do, DON'T bleach it. I did that and I screwed myself over. >.>
But I think red would be beyond gorgeous on you. Especially if it was really vibrant. ^^

I think a light shade of red or brown would work. I'm very hesitant to recommend a darker color due to a nasty experience I had with hair dye when I was twelve. (My hair's a darker blonde than yours is and I accidentally got a single shade too dark of a ten wash dye. It stuck for three months.) However, that's just me. Do what you want; it's your hair.

Actually, I am going to dare to be different and say that a chocolate brown would look really nice against your skin tone

You can't go wrong with dark brown.

It looks absolutely fantastic!

Since the OP has successfully dyed her hair and it looks great, I'm going to close this now. PM me if you want it reopened.
