Blonde is played out. What about a dark red like a deep maroonish color?

It's really just for a change. I have many friends who have had chunky blonde highlights and they looked okay and sometimes hot and funky(which is the look youre going for, not natural and nice). I've always preferred red though. Sarasara, I think you can do blond highlights..not sure about which shade though but you have to get the right shade. I do think would look best in darker hair but I'm sure you already know that .

If you want a guy's opinion...you'd look hot with blonde hair.

Personally, I'm not crazy about blonde hair with darkish skin. You look lovely with dark hair.

Also, I think your eyebrows will not look right with blonde hair.

I don't think you would look good blonde. But the caramel/auburn suggestion would be lovely for your hair. Especially when your out in the sun it would be very striking.

I think blonde would be a big mistake for you. It will likely make your skin tones look muddy, and overall, be pretty unnatural. Also damaging as heck to your hair to lighten so many shades up.

I agree with the caramel highlights idea, though -- you'd get the lift you're looking for but with a more flattering, natural look.

A few years ago a top model with very dark hair/eyes and deep olive skin tones went very blonde for a Clairol ad campaign. I wish I could remember her name now so I could google it -- she looked AWFUL as a blonde, and she was a gorgeous woman. She went dark again ASAP.

I found this link. Perhaps she is one of them?

Yes, thanks! It was Yasmeen Ghauri. Even the hair color itself looks unnatural.

Natural and some lighter hair, but not blonde blonde:

thanks everyone for the responses-and compliments

I know the pictures aren't very clear,but the blonde color the model had is NOT at all the color I had in mind,in terms of the shade as well as it was all over. Plus,like Josephine and some others said,I have no intention of making it look supposedly natural,like the model was trying to,instead I want it to have chunky pieces with a lot of dark hair showing. I have tried caramel and honey highligts which I liked,but Im a person who likes a change a lot,and thats why red is also out of the question because it turns a horrible color which needs to be bleached,according to a hairdresser.

I know that pictures aren't the exact thing but is my skin tone warm or cool,because I can't really figure that out,especially since some said that I have an olive skin tone which I thought had nothing to do with my skin color My complexion looks most like the first and last pictures I guess...

I have also looked for wigs in the haircolor I want but for some reason the only blonde wigs in the Middle East are the very golden ones that I dont like

Thanks for the responses

the blonde you pictured is too blonde for your skin, in my opinion. but going a carmel-y color would probably look fantatastic. like beyonce's to be exact!

Just an FYI: If you are going lighter, whether it's highlights or all over, it WILL require bleach. If you don't bleach before and then tone, you will need a high-lift color (bleach) to lighten. You will actually have to bleach longer to achieve blonde than red. HTH

It sounds like you have your heart set on the light blonde highlights, so go for it if it makes you happy. With the right attitude, you can pull off the chunky funky highlights.

Ya i guess that's true and when I want something I usually go on and do it even if the whole world tells me not to,so I guess I was trying to get everyone on NC to change my mind by saying no :P

You have red undertones in all those pics, so I would not say you have an olive complexion as olive has yellow/gold undertones (and I personally think of olive as a little darker.) To me, you look more cool than warm. You are also so cute, and I think you should keep the dark hair because it suits you (as it should - it's what God gave you.) Going blond is so cliched. If you have to change colours, I'd go with a deep red or a lighter caramel type brown, but I think you should leave it as is!
