Doesn't dirty blonde sound SO much better than mousy?

If someone is mousy I think they are a bit 'plain' dirty blonde sounds so much better!

But they aren't the same thing

Dirty blonde = darkish hair with blonde highlights

Mousy = naturally blond hair that has veered darker

Well anna my hair is both! It was blonde and veered darker towards mousy and I got the blonde put back in, in the form of highlights.

Anna8888 Thu 21-Jun-07 08:11:04

bozza - that is definitely dirty blonde

MamaG Thu 21-Jun-07 08:27:54

Anna yes but they're similar

am dirty blonde myself <preen>

The very best dirty blonde of all is the one where the highlights are natural sun streaks

MamaG Thu 21-Jun-07 08:34:28

<excited> thats meeeeeeee!

(and you too, I suspect!)

Not enough sun for that in Yorkshire. Actually I got fed up after 12 years of blonde highlights and went for a chestnut all over. I liked the colour but the mousy/grey roots coming through were not good. So I currently have blonde highlights over a reddish brown.

yes fio, the work filter banned me from accessing it. Why was that I wonder?

must admit, my first thought on seeing it, was jealously at her lovely taut stomach
