Default Marilyn Monroe hair

Last night, I was looking at her hair in photos and videos. How do you think I'd look with her cut and color? Keep in mind, I had that hair color when I was a little girl but obviously not so much anymore...looking of honest opinions. If you you need more photos, I have a fotki album, password is:bunny although the pictures haven't been updated in a couple of years, they'll still give you a good, or better idea, if needed...self

What old Marilyn Monroe pictures were you looking at? I'm curious as to exactly what hairstyle you are referring to.

Thank you Koukla 72 for both the compliment and the insight! Those were good points you made something to really take the time to consider.

There is definately a resemblance but you might want to consider a more modern take on her style. By that I mean a cut which would look good by simply air drying or diffusing. You would notice your features more with shorter hair and why not get some subtle blond highlights which require minimal effort to upkeep?

I think the color would be too platinum blonde.

I agree with bronzewaves about the cut. All over bleaching would be very damanging, but you could do some platinum higlights, to give you the effect you are looking for, with only some damage.
