Me summer '09 Probably the closest I've been to my original in a long time.

Me Dec. '09 Pretty much blonded up!
I am so pale in this pic...blah, I was in Branson FREEZING!

For years I have dyed my hair blonde. I know my original color has changed over the years becuse I see my roots and they don't look like they did when i was ...oh, 17. I think I was around 17 when I first started highlighting lightly...then, all the way!
I was born with red hair. Not the fire engine red but strawberry red. I hated my hair growing up. Kids are so cruel when you have red hair and freckles.
When I got older I changed the red hair but the freckles are still here. I have actually grown into them though and they don't take power over my face like they did back in the day. Plus you can't get rid of them so you might as well love them.
Although my memaw told me if I rubbed a wet diaper on them they would go away, I didn't do it! She also said buttermilk would take them off...didn't do that one either! Stuff stinks!
Back to my hair. I have tried to find my root color in the store....not happening. So I thought I would get some auburn lowlights and grow my natural out. NOW I might turn around and blonde it out agaihn in no time but for now I am wanting a change.... SO here are a few pics I could find that show what I'm talking about. It wasn't easy to find them.

1. I like her color, not so much all the auburn being underneath but it looks goos.

2. I love hers!! Only maybe I would go a little heavier on the auburn.I like this cut too.

hair color 3 by plastiquegal.

3. Hers is cute but it is more darker with blonde highlights. Maybe I won't go this heavy.

So leave me a comment and let me know what you think. Should I go more like 1, 2 or 3?

*winners for the coupons and book will be announced tomorrow night or Saturday morning so if you want in you best get in while the gettings good!!

ALSO, Something fun is coming in February!!

I like 1. But I'm pretty conservative (read: anal) when it comes to my hair. I'm thinking you might like a little shake-n-stir with your appearance though. I say do whatever makes you feel young and sassy. :)

I like 1 if you want a little change, 3 if you want more dramatic.

Rhonda said...

I am not reading any comments until I tell you which one I like the best #1 is my firt choice and #3 is my second but not so dark..#2 is ok but doesn't look natural...If you can try to get it done by a professional.

I sooo understand the red hair freckle thing! Pardon my presumptions since I truly can't say I know you beyond what i have read in your blog, BUT ....
You seam like a fun,Full of life, life loving, spunky, Vibrant person. I honestly think 2 would fit your personality . It's such a fun, Go gettem' girl , grab the bull by the horns, kind of look. Besides, if you don't like it you can always have it redone in a few weeks. But , number 1 would look fine too. Number 3, NO ! Your right, it's not you at all.

Ok, I think #1 is not enough, but in #2 the red is too dark. If you lightened the red a little, I think that would be a better choice. Enough to know you have changed it up, but not too much. #3 is too dark and too much dark. So, that is MHO.
