Am trying to decide if I want to have highlights again. My issue is no matter how much I spend they never seem to look good when I do my hair at home, stunning when I leave the salon blow dried though. I also wonder if you should wear your hair shorter if it's been bleached so it doesnt look like old straw. Anyone taken the plunge recently ?
I think you look younger the closer you stay to your natural colour, I have dyed my red hair dark brown since my early 20s. I went blonde in the summer, and last week I dyed my hair red again, almost exactly my natural shade, maybe a shade or two brighter and I look younger than I did blonde or brunette, in fact, I've had loads of compliments, more than I did as a blonde.
