I have had such a busy week so far and it's only Tuesday!! Sheesh!
I am so happy because the humidity has FINALLY calmed down a bit. Today was absolutely gorgeous out. Puppy and I could actually go for a nice walk in the sunshine without him panting like crazy for water. BF and I have been keeping him indoors and walking him in the evening because it's been insanely humid and hot out.
So.. I have been thinking long and hard about my hair. I absolutely LOVE being blonde, but I am soooooo hating the brassiness that comes along with it. I just got my hair done not too long ago... trust me.. I LOVE LOVE LOVE it, but I hate that I go through so much blue shampoo just to keep the brassiness down. Not to mention, the blue shampoo that actually works on me... dries my hair out like no tomorrow!!! I have to limit how much I use because it's really drying. I am really trying to just use my sulphate-free shampoos, but then my blonde goes brassy again...sucks!
Naturally, I would say that I'm a dark blonde, light brown. I don't think I would say I'm any darker than that. I have been putting darker lowlights through my hair lately to break up the blonde. I have been getting them blended throughout my hair which I am really really loving galore. I have to admit, that I am really liking the darker pieces. I am almost thinking about taking a little leap and going a bit darker, or maybe a lot darker. I'm not sure, what do you all think?
BF likes me blonde, but I'm not just going to stay that way because he likes it. He will have to love me no matter what....LOL
Here are some hair colors and looks that I really like. Do you think any of these would suit me? Right now, I'm pretty white-ish blonde with lowlights throughout.
Carmen Electra (1st pic) and Lauren Conrade (2nd pic), are sporting the more Ombre look. It's still pretty blonde, but just at the ends. I love this look, but that would mean that keeping it really blonde on my ends would maybe be too damaging?
I love Alessandra Ambrosio's hair. I have always wanted to do my hair like hers, in terms of color. I love how it's dark, but there are still skinny blonde pieces blended throughout her hair so it looks more natural. I'm really leaning towards this color, but it will be a lot darker than I'm used to.
I really like Ashley Simpson's hair here. It would look super awesome with a tan. I really like the color, but do you think it would fade too reddish-y?
I like Ashley Tisdale's look here, maybe with less highlights, but it's super cute.
Again, this is more of an Ombre look, probably like the 1st pic, since it's Carmen Electra, but I feel like the darker color is more ash-y, which I love.
Again, this is more of a darker blonde color. I really love the highlights and lowlights blended together so naturally.
Now.. my hair isn't this dark naturally but I really love the richness of this color. I don't really love reddish colors on me, although they look amazing on lots of people. If I'm going to go dark, then I want it to be "rich" in color. What do you all think? Would this totally wash me out?
Or... do you think I should stay light blonde?
You all NEED to give me your imput. Again, I really love colors on the more ash-y side. I am worried that going dark is totally going to fade like crazy after like the 1st wash, but in doing that, I would have to have my hair appointments pretty close together so Cayla could keep depositing the dark color, until it actually stays.
I have been blonde for so long that I just feel like tweeking it and making a change for a little would be good for the health of my hair. I am worried that going darker would wash out my face and make me look sickly, but who knows... air brushing, bronzer and self tanner are my friends these days, so maybe that would help?
Comment below and give me some feedback if any of these pics would work. If you have any pics that you think would look nice, send them my way!!
