Hairstyling/Should I dye my hair blonde or brown?


Hair Colours
Hair Colours  
KEEP IN MIND that if I were to go blonde it wouldn't be the same blonde as I have in the first picture, it would be exactly like the third picture. My natural hair colour is somewhat ashy medium-dark blonde and I have dark brown eyes.

Thanks for your help!

 First of all, bear in mind that pictures are not always a good judge of how colours look on someone, as the results can vary depending on lighting and other factors, not always giving a true representation of how something really looks on you. Based on these pictures however, I would recommend brunette rather than blonde, as the brunette appears to bring out your features and skin tones better. If you look at the pictures, with the blonde hair your features and colouring fade away and get lost. With the brunette colour your features show. I believe that as a blonde you would have to wear more makeup and with the blonde washing you out, the makeup is mostly what you would see. If you want some brightness and dimension, some small blonde chunks (not big ones) would give a burst of brightness and not wash you out.
Best of luck to you.
