Blonde or Brunette?

That is the question!

Every year I say this will be the "year" I will go back to brown or some version of it, and every year I chicken out. Because the truth is, I love being blonde! And I think it suites me well. My natural color is a dark brown, and I haven't seen that since I was pregnant with Kay. I was blonde before I had her, then when I got pregnant I thought it would be better to dye it back so I wouldn't have to maintain it. Then once she was about 18 months, I slowly started adding more and more blonde back in and have been blonde ever since. I really do love being blonde, it's me...it's my personality, but I also think I could use a change. I don't think I want to go full on all-over-color brown (at least not yet), but rather weave in some brown low lights. I really wish I had a good picture of me with brown hair, but that was long before I owned a digital camera. You all know what I look like with blonde, and I know its hard to compare when you have nothing to go off, but thoughts?

Should I do it and go for a change? Or should I stay with the blonde I love so much?

P.S. My hair appointment is Friday, so I have to make my decision before then!

I say you work in a little brown. Go for a subtle change

I say go for it. Add it in slowly and if you don't like it, then it will be easier to get back.

If you love being blonde, stay blonde! :)

You're gorgeous & I know that you'd look good in any hair color. I'm partial to blonde (prob. b/c I am one!) but it's nice to have a change every once in a while. Besides, you can always go back to blonde if you don't like it!

Just do a little lowlighting for the winter, that way you don't have to do a total change. I'm sure it would look great either way.

I feel the same way! My hair is naturally DARK DARK almost black!! But I've almost always had HEAVY highlights and a shadow underneath! I was just thinking the same the yesterday, I would love to go brown so I wouldnt have to get my regrowth done. But I LOVE my blonde!!

So my advice is if you want to do a little change but some chunks of the brown!? or a shadow underneath??

A little brown won't be such a shock and you can always go back blonde if you feel too hum drum!

I say go for a BIG change, especially since it's FALL! You can always go back...I've been a blond my whole life (well, dirty, dishwater blond!) and a few months ago I just decided to go for it and get my hair colored a rich, auburn shade. It's was definetly a huge risk, but I love the new color! I still love being blond, and will definetly go back to it someday, but it was so nice to make that big change!!

My vote is for blond, with some low lights. I always go darker for the fall:)

I just went brown for the "fall" or "winter".....I love it! Feels warm and dramatic. I'll likely start adding in more blonde come spring....but for now, I'm digging the brown!

Jamie said...

I say do it. It is just hair....you can always go back blonde!!

Try going back subtly. I have been blonde forever and I think I need to darken it up a little. Sometimes you just need a change.

I say just jump in and go for it!! Auburn is a pretty color!! Your roots won't be as noticeable either ;).

I honestly couldn't imagine you as a brunette. But, if you're wanting to go blonde, i agree about adding it in slowly. do some low lights and go from there.
