There's a recent picture of me. As you can see, I have medium/dark brown hair, blue eyes, and SUPER pale skin. I'm planning on dying my hair for the first time ever, but I don't know if I should go lighter or darker. Not blonde or black, but a dark or light brown. Either way, I'd include highlights and lowlights so it wouldn't be so flat. :)
Darker: Pros - Might make my eyes pop (I've always thought dark hair/blue eye looked pretty!) Don't have to worry too much about roots, won't damage my hair as much. Cons - Might make me look really flushed (because of my pale skin)
Lighter: Pros - Safer, would make me look "nicer" (I read that somewhere), might go better with my skin. Cons - More high maintenance, Might damage my hair, no "pop" to it.
I'm also looking for style suggestions, I've had this hairstyle for about four-five years now...I'm ready for something new! Bangs, layers? Short, long? What do you think? Thanks!
ADDITIONAL DETAILS: (Don't have to read! Just some things that might be helpful, if you know a lot about this stuff.)
I have an oval face.
I normally wear contacts
My hair is naturally wavy, and I almost never style it.
I have a "cool" skin tone
I'm willing to go a lot shorter...but it needs to be passed the face, at least.
My hair is VERY thick
And another question is anyone knows about colors and skin tones, I was thinking about red-ish highlights in my darkish brown hair. Would that work with a "cool" skin tone?
I just asked like 3 questions :/ Sorry! I'm new, and curious. If you can answer any one, it would be much appreciated. :)
Ok so first of all, you are sooo pretty. I would kill to have your big blue eyes! I personally think that you should dye it darker because like you said, it will make your eyes pop even more. Buuut on that note, maybe you should just change your hair style first. That way you arent extremely changing your appearance. A suggestion for how you should get it cut would be to get long layers. Having the shortest layer starting at your shoulder. That way you dont really have to style it. You can just shower and go haha. So ya, I hope this helps!
Thank you! This helped a lot! I think I'm just going to add some high/low lights to my hair, but I'll probably aim to go a little darker. I'm still looking at specific styles, but long layers sound good. :) Thanks again!
Hmm, I'm not much into shaved sides. But Thank you for the suggestion! I appreciate it. :)
Well i'm sure that what ever you decide will look great! And nooo problem c:
Lighter would suit you prefect and even a shaved side
No problem :)
