Default Cut and dyed Friday- Second thoughts!

Lately I've been incredibly bored with my hair... mostly with the color. I wanted to do a drastic color change, and thought I'd go with red. I have read that red hair complements pale complexions, and was told that the shade of red I will be dying my hair will basically make my curls "pop" (if that even makes sense...).

I will also be getting my hair cut to chin length. It is a bit above my shoulders, so the cut won't be too drastic.

What shall the verdict be--- to dye, or not to dye? Should I choose I darker color? Would the shade go with my complexion? Opinions are quite welcome =)

i think that red will look so good on you! That shade looks like it would work, or maybe a little bit darker. I have a pale complection and dark brown hair/eyes too, and I have ALWAYS wanted to dye my hair auburn!

I think a redder color would suit you.

Here's an idea though: if you want to try red, you can use Color by Robert Craig to change the tone of your hair. It is very gentle, will not lift your natural color but just add a color to it. This way, if you don't care for it that much, it will fade or grow out without harsh color lines or damage.

Post new pics after your salon trip!

ETA: if you're not brave enough to try at home, have the stylist use a glaze-type product (no peroxide or ammonia).
