I voted brunette. I'm a mousy, boring ash brown.

I used to dye my hair a lot. Red always stuck around forever. Dark brown faded within two weeks. I can't remember the last time I dyed my hair red, but you can see that the ends are still reddish. I even dyed my hair dark brown on top of that, but the red refuses to fade. No worries, though--I like it better than my natural color.

Actually, I like my hair color. It is plain brown most of the time, but it can look almost blondish in some lights and almost reddish in others. It used to look a lot blonder when it was long.

I think that natural black hair is very common in most asian countries. Likewise, natural blonde hair is common in scandinavian countries and certain european countries like germany and poland.

In the US, my hunch is that most women have some shade of naturally brunette hair, especiallly judging by robust sales and use of hair dye.

My hair is naturally a very dark brown.

When I was living in southern Italy, I never saw a natural blonde unless she was foreign born.

I think actual black hair is not very common. Most people have a dark brown hair, that can look black, but really isn't.

Please excuse any typos. For the time being, we are blaming it on my computer.
I also read somewhere that no one actually has true black hair, it's just dark dark dark brown. Don't know how accurate that is, though.

Anyways, I have dark brown hair.
3b/c...or thereabouts.

I was born with yellowish blonde hair that darkened to a dirty or dishwater blonde color.

I personally love dark hair

Blonde hair is overrated in my opinion.
3A/2C combination of ringlets and waves
i also read the definition of brunette and it was "dark hair" so technically black is brunette

Among the NC community, there is someone with the most gorgeous 3a/b hair who never adds any chemicals or heat to it and she has what appears to be naturally black hair. I think that she is latina. I can't remember her name, but started a thread raving about her hair once. She is shy with extremely beautiful hair and a gorgeous face too.

Among celebrities with naturally black hair, I think of Zhang Ziyi, Lucy Liu, Gong Li, etc..

Not all asians have naturally black hair, but the vast majority of them do.

My hair is very dark brown but not exactly black. Lately though, I would call it "beige" because the gray and overprocessed highlights have taken over!
