You're purty! Do you not fancy just going back to blonde? I think I'd do long blonde hair if I had the chance. You have quite delicate features so I think you could take a shorter cut if you wanted. I have a friend with quite similar facial features and she has shortish blonde hair, with layers sometimes around the chin and sometimes bra-strap and it looks lovely (though she has quite thin hair). Eg a bit like Reece Witherspoon when her hair is shorter.
No idea about colour but I have recently had my looong hair chopped to mid length. It's still long enough to be versatile but avoids the long face look you can sometimes get with long hair. Mid length suits all face shapes too
I have a similar face shape to you and I find that mid length hair suits me better than really long. At the moment I have it just touching my shoulders with lots of layers through the bottom and I really like it. I've tried most styles from waist length to pixie crop via a graduated bob but I think length suits me best.
I'm going against the grain to say stay brown-it really suits you! but you are gorgeous anyway you could maybe go for shoulder length with a heavy fringe and some different tones if you wanted a change.
Hiya, I'm the OP but had to NC and can't get my old name back! Thanks for the advice, I do feel like its just a block of colour but I don't know how to change that without growing the dye out? I'm tempted to go for shoulder length, maybe like a long bob. I can't imagine being blonde again,haven't been that for years and years! Plus I think I might be a bit too pale for it.
So does anyone know how I get rid of the blocky colour and get some tone in there?
Visit a good hairdresser who will add highlights/lowlights and layers to the length you want. I'd say, keep the length, but with 'movement'. It'll look lovely but, no home dye jobs.... You need a professional
