Would you consider this person blonde or brunette most?

I know it's ombre so it's technically both, but if this makes sense, would you consider someone with this hair a blonde mostly, or a brunette with blinde in their hair. Lol I am so sorry this is worded really strangely, I've had baby brain all day. Also, any idea what level of hair this blonde is? Thank you so much xx

Hair grows from the base so regardless of what colour she has in it she is a brunette.
If the tips were pink, would you consider her a pink head?

Brunette - because of the dark head.

Lots of shades of blonde here but the lightest looks like ash to me.

Pink head lol

I'd describe that as brunette.

I know that the top of her head is dark. I'm just asking from a first glance perspective would you consider her as a brunette or a blonde. It's ombre obviously, but she does have more blonde in it than brunette.

And no, I obviously would not consider her a 'pink head' if she had pink tips, but if her pink hair was the same ratio to this girls then yeah I would probably consider her mostly pink haired.

Blonde. And it's gorgeous!

That hair is super pretty, hats off to her stylist. From a first glance she seems mostly blonde, so I would probably consider her mostly blonde. As for the level it's quite light and ashy, probably a level 9 or not far off it. Love a good balayage.

Mostly blonde. With high contrast ombre you get the best of both worlds I suppose, but the blonde would capture my eye more than the brown. Beaut x

Brunette with massive roots.

Newtssuitcase Wed 20-Sep-17 07:59:07

She's clearly a natural brunette but her hair is blonde surely.

Laladog Wed 20-Sep-17 08:22:36

Squashit it's balayage ombre

How is it brunette? It's about 75% blonde

Spam88 Wed 20-Sep-17 09:25:20

I'd say brunette because that's the sort of 'base' colour with the ombré added to it.

Newtssuitcase Wed 20-Sep-17 10:08:54

This thread is bizarre she clearly has blonde hair at the time of the photo being taken. To describe her as brunette is bonkers.

AmysTiara Wed 20-Sep-17 10:11:26

I'd say definitely blonde

gingerbreadmam Wed 20-Sep-17 10:12:53

id say brunette. are you thinking of going that colour?i would think the blonde would be bleached to get it that light and then toned.

dont try this at home.

mummyretired Wed 20-Sep-17 10:16:35

Brunette. I'd always think of the natural colour if it's visible.

Trills Wed 20-Sep-17 10:31:54

Can you explain the context of the question?

In what circumstance are you expecting us to categorise her?

I don't generally go around thinking "that person is blonde, that person is brunette".

ALittleMop Wed 20-Sep-17 10:34:34

its a mixture
don't understand why you ask or why it matters?

ALittleMop Wed 20-Sep-17 10:34:56
