I am super bored of my hair. I like something that really commands attention. I usually go red, but this summer I'm thinking blonde. And yes, I would keep the dark brows. I dont understood skin tones because I always get told something different. I'm pretty dolled up in this picture, but its the only nice recent shot I have. I need help.

well I know my initial plan was to use a color striper. My stylist used it around christmas and it was super effect/non damaging. I just don't know what my skin tone is, warm, cool, natural. it makes it hard for me to choose.

@Sarhstdr, your red hair is gorgeous! I had a friend who was a natural redhead and very similar coloring to you-her hair was colored a brighter red with blondish highlights and it looked fabulous!

 

Will you be going to a salon or attempting to color your hair yourself? I'd recommend seeing a professional so they can decide and mix the best color combination for you and fix it if your hair looks too brassy or dull. I have a LOT of friends who go to blonde shades and it can sometimes take a while to get the color at the intensity you want! My hair is so dark I won't even attempt it and am happy with my extensions instead lol but definitely see a professional who can cool down or warm up your coloring if needed, I'm sure it will look great!

thank. I'm so overwhelmed with the replies. I will be going to a pro. I just like to be 100% sure what I want/talking about when I go. Thanks for the compliment.

Your skin is very fair and has some slight pink undertones and really you could do so much with it. A dirty blonde, golden blonde, and light blonde would all go well but your eyebrows are what might hold you back. And because of that you need some dark in there so it doesn't look odd. Blonde with low lights is another option.

Though this isn't the best image of her, I think going for a blonde like what Emma Watson has in this photo could work. She's on the fair side of the complexion scale and her brows are darker in this photo:

She's rocking a much more golden blonde shade and if you notice it's not just a solid shade. Her roots and under layers are darker, and like Ariela said, low lights can help warm up and deepen the blonde to where it won't be so stark against your brows.

 

There's also this image of model Agyness Deyn who rocks a much lighter, cooler blonde with her fair skin and dark brows:

I actually like the red hair ( even though I'm not fond of red hair usually) maybe like a golden blonde swfupload_372375053786814998.jpg
