Hair Colors

I have been wanting a change for awhile, not because I don’t like my hair dark, but it has been a shade of brown for over 4 years now. I used to be completely blonde (the first time I dyed my hair EVER) and while I didn’t want to go to that extreme, I wanted something a bit more golden. So after a lot of foil (A LOT) I am one step closer to the hair color I hope to have. I think one day when I settle on a hair color, it will be dark brown/black (for some reason I’m always drawn back to this color).

And for those of you who are curious (because I’m always curious about what other people’s natural hair color is), here is my natural color:

All through high school my parents would not let me dye my hair. The summer before college, they finally allowed me to, so I dyed it blonde since it was a color I always wanted to try. It’s not that I don’t like my natural, sandy blonde color (as it is called), but I get bored easily (could you tell?) Anyway, we will see how long I am this golden blonde color!

    I am right there with ya. I have had my hair every color under the sun. Unfortunately, I look best as a blonde which is not easy (or cheap) to keep up with. I am loving this new color on you!

    I had no idea you were naturally blonde! I think your hair looks so pretty in this new medium brown tone. My hair has also been every color and then a few years back I finally got tired of dying it!

    Wow! I had no idea you were blonde! I do love this new color on you and it’s perfect for spring and summer! I used to dye my hair red – like super red – but got tired of the upkeep!

    I love the brown! You look good in any shade though- the blonde is fun and the dark brown/black is sexy (for lack of a better word), but the in-between brown is gorgeous too!

      Thanks Rachel! I definitely LOVE my dark hair and I think I will always go back to it. Just wanted something new and fun for spring/summer! Plus I am thinking I won’t want to dye my hair as much as I get older, so one last time ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I like the new color but love your natural color too. I used to dye my air but quit when it just got too darn expensive for me to maintain.

    You look gorgeous with every single hair color! That’s so unfair haha. I think I like the light blonde and your natural color the most, but the dark is gorgeous on you as well.

    I used to be the same way with dying my hair, but I’ve actually kept it the same shade now for several years. It’s boring, but easy haha.

    I love all colors! Your natural color is really pretty but I like the new color the best. :) I think it’s fun we can get crazy with our hair. I have gone from dark brown to red to blonde and now am addicted to extensions. I am scared to see what I do next! Ha!

    My natural hair is Sandy blond too. My Mother never let me dye it either. She always said People pay to get their hair your color! I think it’s just not ENOUGH color. Not brown enough to be brunette, and too dark to be a true blond. It’s the perfect dyable color. I’ve been EVERY color (pink, blue, red, orange, glow in the dark yellow, mint green, blue stripes with red tips…everything but black) but I always go back to California blond. (Never again platinum, check out some of my fall posts if you want to see that disaster.) I think you look great with every color, but this one will look fab with a hint of tan this summer. You look lovely! (As usual!)

    I think you look lovely with both dark and light hair!! My current shade is my natural hair color, but I was a redhead for over a year, and I’ve also dyed it dark brown. I want to try lighter for the summer…

    Your natural color is so pretty, I never would have guessed the dark brown isn’t your natural color though! You’re lucky you can pull off every color!! :)

    I just went through a TERRIBLE experience trying to get my hair from black to medium brown (my natural color) so I’m glad your hair change went so smoothly!
