Coloring my hair: Stay blonde or go brown?

Hi Ladies!
It's that time of year again when my roots are growing out and I've decided to treat myself to some color therapy. I'm a natural blonde and dyed my hair brown over a year ago. I'm trying to figure out what to do and would love opinions before my appt on thursday. Sorry about all of the pictures! All are taken before I was CG when my hair hated me and thus why it's straightened. One is me super blonde, one totally brunette and the other after full blonde highlights to the brown. I've also attached a picture of Taylor Swift with what I think I want to do. What do you guys think that I should do? It's almost Winter so I want my hair to be warmer and it's hard to upkeep superblonde especially when I won't be outside a lot. My hair is also naturally an ashy blonde, not real vibrant. I'm also light skinned but I LOVE the look of light skin and dark hair (I think SJP, Scarlett Johansen and Rachel McAdams do it perfectly!) Thanks again.







Can totally identify. I love the color in the second picture. I suspect your natural color is a little lighter than the Taylor Swift picture, but very similar. I think it would be beautiful--very subtle.

you are gorgeous and I can only imagine you will look beautiful with any color, I however LOVE brunettes. Do you have blue eyes? to me there is nothing more beautiful than a blue eyed brunette but regardless of your eyes, I think brown will look great on you!
I'm glad you understand Kathymack! Most people don't get why I would want to touch it but it is at this horribly awkward stage in regards to color. Of course, I guess you do always want what you don't have

I do have blue eyes! Sometimes green, they change pretty frequently. I also like blue eyes, brown hair and light skin; there's something illusive about it.
I think most women would kill for your natural hair color--in fact I think an awful lot of women spend good money for it. Also your eye & skin color usually look best w/your natural hair color......

Anyway, I think you can probably tell what my vote is.

I agree, pic 2 looks best. You are totally gorgeous, but I didn't really like the super blond on you (3rd pic). I think a red-ish color would looke stunning on you, like this:

Fine, very porous 3a
Boycotting all brands owned by L'oreal

Go brunette, and send us pictures.If you don't like it .contrasting highlights would be awesome. Hey you"re young, might as well be flamboyant.I personally think your siggie is cuter than miss overexposed taylor swift.Being blonde, I get overcome with urges for drama,my eyes are dark, howeverand havent found an alternate,that goes with my skintone.I also like that redhead idea.(ahhhh, living vicariously)

Thanks for all of the help girls! I was getting nervous about going darker until I read all of your comments! I'm thinking that I will color close to the 2nd picture (similar to Taylor Swift minus the grey tone). My appt got moved to tomorrow and I will absolutely post pics!
Here's the promised pictures. Not what I wanted (that's a whole another thread, literally). We'll see how it turns out when curly....

This morning curly


After


I like it! I like it straight too. Interesting to see how the color will look when its curly.
