What suits you? I've just gone from bleached blonde to in-between and although I feel less stand-outy it certainly looks more natural and more healthy.

I've been brunette a few times too and liked that.

It's just in-between feels a bit boring...

Brunette - always. I had highlights once and had to dye my hair back straight away. I've often wondered what it would be like to be completely blonde but I think I'd rather wear a wig to see rather than bleach my hair.

In between. Just gone from very light blonde to in between (my natural colour) and agree with Woowoowoowoo in that I feel less stand outy but feel it suits me better.

I have very, very light hair, almost white blonde.

People never believe me that it's natural and I have has people insist that I 'must' dye it to my face.

I'm blonde and <controversial> I wish less women would bleach their hair. Blonde hair is so unusual in nature but it has become so blah with everyone getting highlights or bleaching. Everyone thinks mine is fake too.

I would much prefer my own dark brown to blonde, however because of the grey roots I now have highlights, I tried the bleach blonde, but I didnt like the roots and I think it looks tacky and felt a bit like mutton
(was 41) I think the highlights are deadly boring and feel totally blended in with the crowd, I used to have a rainbow of colours so it feels even more boring to me, however I love the fact that my silver greys now blend perfectly with the highlights and I dont have to do the roots so often anymore.

I'm charcoal brown - almost black - and I love it.

My mother coloured my hair various shades of blonde when I was young, I look at old childhood photos and think I look odd, but she still thinks it looked nice.

I'm a dark blonde but I bleach it's short and edgy in style though, not a fan of long over-bleached just looks knackered!

Bright blue. I'm blue da da dee da dun Dow da ba dee...

Woowoowoowoo Thu 23-Jan-14 22:16:32

Yep mine was looking pretty knackered ScarletLady02 - I'm missing it though.

Brown, black or red. I can pull off a dark blonde, my hair still goes light in the sun but it looks off on me. Jet blue black otoh works - I've got quite a dark undertone but very pale atm (tired and no sun EVER it feels like) and blonde washes me out a bit, and my eyes and eyebrows are ludicrously dark so it always looks dyed. I looked better blonde as a child as my skin was darker though.

Its red atm but has faded to a dark auburn - time to do it again smile Hate it when my hair looks a natural colour grin

I'm as dark brown and you can be without be without it being black.

Dark is just far sexier imo. I have a perpetual smokey eye and pale skin. I like it.

red - very red - I have been blonde and I looked dead!

BuntyPenfold Thu 23-Jan-14 22:23:07

I hate the way the brown shades go reddish.
My natural colour was light brown, not auburn at all, and I can't recreate it.

ThoughtFox Thu 23-Jan-14 22:25:02

I quite fancy bright red, but in fact it's dark brown.

RoseRedder Thu 23-Jan-14 22:26:42

dark brown

I look odd with blonde, my face just seemed to vanish into a nothingness

Rule of thumb I'd stay stay in you spectrum unless your going for one of the electric blue, red , purple colours

Woowoowoowoo Thu 23-Jan-14 22:34:51

I love that browny blondey caramel ala Kim K at the mo but just can't crack it.

Woowoowoowoo Thu 23-Jan-14 22:35:15

Yes I just said ala Kim K.

Since you ask, I can confirm that I definitely prefer brunettes. grin

I hate my natural hair colour (too dark, too boring) so keep it bleached blonde or at least highlights.

The key is getting the right tone but I've gone all sorts of colours depending on my mood.
