Honestly, if I could even somewhat pull off overall blonde hair, I would have done it back when it was really in a few years ago. I think it's hot and fun for a change.
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

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!

I think blonde is so cliched that I color my blonde (although it is a drab dark blonde)hair red - go figure.

Actually,a lot of my friends keep telling me to dye my hair black because they prefer "arabian beauty" or something like that,and from what I know guys all around,not just in the ME prefer blondes.Not saying that they all do,just saying that the cliche seems to be all around the world,and I know many MErn men who prefer brunettes.

About the henna,I have tried it and it does make my hair softer,but I cant stand its stinky mess and whenever I want to change my haircolor after that the hairdressers tell me my hair might go green
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

ARGH DON'T GO BLONDE!!! I'm only saying that because I desperately want your hair color....sigh....I do think the caramel highlights would look better than full-on blonde, though.

Light blonde highlights are going to look skunky on your dark hair. If you really want highlights stick with warm, caramel highlights.

by caramel highlights do you mean this color? (Doesn't show well at the roots but shows in the ends)


Is it too late to say no?
Blonde to me is an easy way to try and make one feel prettier or more excepted.
Dark is much more reliant on your own features. And you are uniquely beautiful. Don't change your color. At least not to blonde.

ETA, if it is something you really want I would also support that because ultimately that will do more for you than any hair color will. But be sure it's for the best and right reasons.

Sarasara...you are GORGEOUS!!!! What is all this business about being scared about a crush!?! Any guy should be THRILLED to go out with you!!


ETA: To the original question..don't go blonde. Anytime I see women who are darker complected with blonde hair..I think "cheap". You are too pretty for that. It will detract from your overall look. I think you should go with a deep red with some other highlights that will play up your coloring.

Thanks.And no it isn't too late. I change my haircolor very often and never had very light highlights,and I'm very curious to try it,is mostly my main reason.

Thanks.But I just found out he likes another girl :P
I think you are very pretty and your hair color suits you perfectly well.

But if you want to try it, just do it! It's fun to change hair color.
You can always go back to your original color easily.

Not necessarily that many highlights, maybe chunkier if you want to be bolder.

Isn't this color a bit orangish on me? Yasmine's complexion is much darker than mine

Maybe pictures I posted may be darker than usual,because my hair color in the last picture actually has many blonde highlights but it looks brown here.My skin color looks a lot like my avatar.
OK hers might be a little orangey. Check out my highlights album (pw in sig line): http://public.fotki.com/curlilocks/curlilocks_quest/

I think our complexions are similar, and I have had caramel and auburn-ish highlights. If you want more drama than mine, go a little lighter or chunkier. I did mine very thin. These are ones the salon did--too orange for me:

I don't like Yasmeen's highlights in that pic - too light for her.

Sarasara, you are so beautiful and the dark hair looks striking on you and makes your beautiful eyes stand out even more!

Personally I'm not a big fan of highlights or light hair. That comes from my personal experience (aka big hair mistakes! LOL). A lot of times, women who have naturally dark hair look off/odd with lighter hair. Like...the color just looks completely artificial, not just on their skintone, but it just doesn't look like a natural, 'God given' hair color. It just looks too yellow or dull.

I saw a girl on the train who went completely blonde, and you can tell her hair was naturally dark...her hair looks like baby chick fuzz yellow.

Then again, it all depends on who does the highlights for you, and the shade of color used....because when the stylist hit it on the nail and the color looks GOOD, the women look fantastic.

So, IMHO, I would forgo any hair color changes for you, or if you do want to add a bit of spice, do some subtle highlights a few shades lighter than your natural color.
