Fancy a image revamp - any ideas?

I have had a pretty rubbish year relationship wise and feel like investing in myself to cheer myself up. I've attached a pic - anyone got suggestions of colours/styles that might suit me? I'm open to suggestions.

At the hairdresser on Saturday - usually have highlights but could do something different

You've got a great face (very pretty) so could probably get away with anything you fancy. I am also booked in to the hairdresser's on Saturday for a restyle and I'm trying to decide between a choppy bob or crop. I doubt I'll come out looking quite as fabulous as these pictures but hey ho grin

namechangingreg Thu 05-Feb-15 17:50:02

Ooh I like the choppy bob! Wonder if I should go shorter but not brave enough!

GoGoNinjaDinosaur Thu 05-Feb-15 18:00:58

Meh, it's only hair it'll grow back grin. Maybe a side swept fringe like choppy bob lady if you don't want anything too drastic? Hard to comment on colour from the photo but it looks good as it is.

You have a great face and would really suit a short choppy pixie cut

I agree with noddy. Or even a longer crop if the first one's too scary?

namechangingreg Thu 05-Feb-15 18:27:06

This is the usual highlighted look I go for - thinking of going blonder and maybe bobbed? It's naturally curly though so I worry it'll frizz.

sunflower49 Thu 05-Feb-15 18:31:22

You are very pretty.

I think blonde and quite bright red highlights?

I personally wouldn't go shorter BUT that is me, who has crap hair that takes ages to grow so biased opinion smile

Twinklestein Thu 05-Feb-15 18:48:44

Very pretty!

I love the colour and length in your 18:27 post, I think it's just right.

If you didn't want to do a bob you could try something like this

namechangingreg Thu 05-Feb-15 19:33:09

Ooh I like that - twinklestein!

From the first photo, I confident that you have winter colouring. So I don't think that highlights are a good idea, you look a bit washed out in the later picture. I prefer you with bold lipstick and matching nails.
Try a funky hairstyle with Mac Ruby Woo lipstick maybe?

squoosh Thu 05-Feb-15 20:12:21

Well I love your hair in the second photo especially. I don't know about going blonder though, I think it might make your skin look quite sallow.

TheyLearnedFromBrian Thu 05-Feb-15 20:17:59

I like you darker - blonder hair definitely not as right, you look sallower.

You also have a longish face, and especially in the second picture, the longer hair drags it down a bit. So I'd definitely go for the short crop - I reckon it will look amazing - you have a brilliant face, such amazing eyes.

Twinklestein Thu 05-Feb-15 20:39:38

You don't look washed out in the slightest in pic 2 OP. Matching lipstick and nails is just no...

namechangingreg Thu 05-Feb-15 21:25:01

Hmm mixed opinions. I might be brave a lop off a bit, but a crop scares me. Had one aged 10 and kept getting called sonny grin

Maybe no lighter then, just a few highlights and some darker tones?

Homeiswherethefartis7 Thu 05-Feb-15 21:50:32

I really like your current look however really do like the spiked flat top with a permed back section. Go for pastel colours on the high face brings out the colour of ones eyes.

A nice necklace with a pendant would not go amiss too!

namechangingreg Thu 05-Feb-15 22:53:42

Not sure what the high face is? Not keen on pendants either. I am quite pared back with jewellery ( ie don't wear any!)

Nextwednesday Thu 05-Feb-15 23:07:56

I think you would suit darker rather than blonder.

Nextwednesday Thu 05-Feb-15 23:08:50

Mind you, you are amazingly pretty so would probably suit anything.

Nextwednesday Thu 05-Feb-15 23:09:38

Most of us me who want a makeover really need one.

cerealqueen Thu 05-Feb-15 23:20:04

this would look lovely, length at the front to frame your face

Sorry to hear of bad times, onward and upwards!

cerealqueen Thu 05-Feb-15 23:24:04

Sorry, lost link, will try again!
