    Help Going Black?

    Advertisements
    My hair has always been light and I like it (strawberry blondish) but DH really wants me to dye it black possibly with red chunks and I am just not so sure. I wonder if it will make me look too pale, not to mention what to do if I do it and hate it.

    So two questions

    Black (and or red) or keep it how it is?

    and the length it is now to grow it back out long?



    Here is what my hair looks like now:


    And here is what is used to look like:


    Insights please I am going crazy!

    I like your hair long and light!

    Just my opinion...

    I'm not a fan of black hair on paler skin. I did it before, when I was like 15.... I way also going through my "goth" stage....

    - It's your hair! Do it how YOU like it.

    You're welcome.

    I would grow it longer but keep it light. I'm not a fan of the super dark hair with lighter highlights.

    You're very pretty by the way
    Never do anything halfway unless you want to be half happy.

    Is this a dream? If it is, please don't wake me from this high. I'd become comfortably numb
    until you opened up my eyes to what it's like when everything is right...I can't believe you found me ♥

    if you want to go dark, i'd say go with dark brown highlights first then work your way towards the dark instead of just doing it drastic right away...that way if you don't like it dark, it won't be so extreme. i'm not a fan of black unless people have the skin tone for it, but to each their own! i like it long and light though.

    I like the longer length!

    I went through a lot of changes this year and so did my hair. I am a natural blonde, went slowly darker then to black, now back to how it was originally.

    It's really hard to go from black back to blonde!

    That is my problem I have no idea how I like it. I am the most indecisive person ever, especially when it comes to my hair.

    Thank you!

    I am thinking black would be too dark. Maybe I'll just add red to what I have now instead.

    I would do dark brown before black, it's so much easier to pull off. And if you don't like the black, it's the worst color to get out of your hair.

    My eyebrows are dark brown almost black so I know as I get older my hair will turn dark brown I wonder if I should speed up the process.
