    Blush Allllright. Be honest... [update: photos of roots!]

    Advertisements
    Last night I had my friend dye my (dyed brown) hair Auburn/Red. I've had a variant (Mohagany that faded red) of this colour before, not as bright, but I loved it. I like this colour, too... but here's my dilemma...

    Issue: my natural colour is a mousy/cold/ash blonde... which had grown in a little. Mistake! My roots are fire-engine/Ronald McDonald red.

    I have engagement pictures on Friday
    (I know, I know... I was going to stay on the cautious side and not dye my hair... but I went balls to the wall and dyed it because I'm stubborn.)

    I already made an appointment with my hairdresser to fix the roots. But... looking for some honest opinions on whether I should keep the hair colour the same, or get the whole thing toned back down to more of a brown tone for the pictures.

    Before:




    Now:
    (Keep in mind... no makeup in this one!)




    Roots:

    I definitely think that you can pull of the red! I am biased though and love red hair. I guess my main concern is do you want your engagement pictures that you will have for the rest of your life that shade of red or something more natural? I personally like the red, but you are going to be with those engagement pictures forever.

    I like the color on you! I say just fix the roots (although from the pic I don't see anything wrong) and keep the color!

    You know, I am generally not a fan of fake red (maybe I am biased with my real red hair ) but you actually pull it off very very well! I really like it on you. I think you should keep it!

    The red looks great on you! Ask yourself though, are you going to look back at these pictures and wish you had more of your natural hair color?

    Keep it red!! I think you pull it off really well. And honestly, I don't see much wrong with the roots other than potentially being brighter in a different light setting.

    This.

    When I would dye my hair red, my roots ALWAYS seemed brighter the first day after, but eventually it all ended up looking the same.
