Hairstyling/Hair Colour



When I was younger my hair was a light blonde. As I grew older it started to darken. I've had it highlights put in my hair every once in a while for the past few years, and now I'm not a big fan of how it looks. I've been thinking about dying my hair. The only problem is, I don't know what color. I have blue eyes, very fair skin, and freckles. My sister said maybe an auburn or dark brown, but I have no idea what I should do. Please help me.

Thank you(:

 The colour you choose would depend on your eye colour and skin tone, as you suspect. Blue eyes usually signify a cooler complexion, so if you choose an auburn or red, it shuold be a cooler red, not warmer. With very fair skin avoid too dark a colour as it can make you look Goth. While this may be fine, you have to be ready to carry this look all the time. Probably a medium red/brown, or brown. Mid range and deeper reds look great with blue eyes also. What you may want to do is go to a wig shop and try on some wigs. Don't worry about the style. Remember, you're just looking at how the colour reflects off your skin and eye colour. That should give you an excellent idea before making the move.
Best of luck to you.
