I like dark auburn hair, so I chose "red".

But I also like jet black hair. There are so many women here who have gorgeous jet black hair. Our receptionist is one of them - her hair is just amazing. And of course my husband has jet black hair, which is another reason I love it.

I have naturally blonde curls/waves. So I voted blonde. :P

But in reality I would love to have dark black shiny hair...love it! Of course I would look ridiculous with black hair. Blonde hair is hard to maintain, it looks dry easily, mine bleaches out in the sun, then it grows in darker blonde...it's hard to maintain a nice even color. I've been so tempted to color it dark. But I have to admit I get more attention from guys when it's at its blondest. But I'm also single, childless, and lonely so obviously my blonde hair isn't attracting the right guys!!

My mom's hair is beautiful!!! She has red/audburn curls with blonde highlights. She is 56 and has never colored it before in her life...gorgeous.

yeah, he's truly evidence of the ugly duckling syndrome and it's reverse. Prince William is turning into his father as he ages. Its' too bad really.

Yeah, it was a bit dicey for a while there. It seemed to me he was looking too much like Prince Charles' mini-me. Lucky for him he grew into his looks.

I voted black. I've always wanted long, jet black, straight hair. My stepdaughter and nephew and most of their friends are going thru the black hair phase and tho it doesn't look as good as natural black hair, I still love. If I was younger, I'd be right there with 'em.

she really does have beautiful hair, curly or straight. I think Liz Kiefer (Blake Marler) from Guiding light has really pretty curly red hair too.

I tend to favor darker shades as well. A nice shiny dark brown or black is very, very nice.

I LOVE red hair, just because it's so unusual, I guess. It's very striking. After that, definitely deep, dark hair.

Like a lot of you, I find red hair to be so beautiful (such as Julianne Moore's shade). If you have thick red curly hair, then you have hit the jackpot! (disclaimer: this goes for women. Red hair doesn't work as well on men, IMO)

After that, jet black, or very close to it (Jennifer Connolly, Catherine Zeta-Jones color). I'm glad that my hair is so dark (not quite black, but pretty darn close to it) -- it has a lot of natural shine.

The reds are most striking.

Ditto. I think Ina Garten from food network has the shiniest straight hair I've ever seen.

I'm split down the middle - I love dark shiny chocolate colored hair. It just glows. But I also love sparkling blondes, specifically a pale wheat color. I do like cooler shades in hair color.
