What's Your Color?


What's your color? Very important dicussion here. Hair ladies. What is your color? Do you like to highlight, lowlight? No light. Natural, natural with a little help.

A year ago, this was the Twins and Me at Christmastime. I love it. Of course, I love that pictures say a thousand words and I love the boys expressions in this picture on Christmas Day 2007. And I'll say it I liked the brunette hair, it was fun and might I say lovely.

It was not me. :) So I tried the "other side" as some would say - the dark side for about seven months. I truly embraced the 'new' me. The plan was to embrace the 'lower maintenance" i.e. lower cost. I loved M's work, but the day I left the salon feeling just plain and I was carrying a 'Bar Tab" for $263.00 I knew something had to change.

I'd be me and go back to the 'goldie locks" as I was called of blonde days. It's been a great return. And as the children said when I made the switchback. "Now your hair matches your skin." I'm just sayin' sometimes little six year olds just say it like it is. And that's it, I am blue eyed with fair skin and my fair blonde hair is me. With a little help from my new girl V who does not send me home with a $200+ "bar tab."

Tell me your Hair Color Story or just your Hair story. Go ahead - all of us girls have something to say in this department.

I'm a natural strawberry blond and have never colored my hair. Can't way I never will, cause if this ever fades I will want it back!

I am gradually moving from the Pluck The Grey Hair stage to the Must Make A Decision stage. I'm a brunette who has never once, not one single time, colored her hair. Hmm....

Right now I am in my winter phase, so my hair has low lights. In a couple of months when I am so tired of this I can't stand it the high lights will come back. You just never know what it will look like. :)

I used to dye my hair burgundy way back in college. And for some reason, my roots never showed when it would grow out. Not really sure what that means... I am naturally a brunette with some blond and red highlights (and now with a few gray highlights). My hair looked odd when I used to dye it because then it would be all one color.

I'm a dark-headed brunette. Always loved the color until I started getting grays....just had it colored for the first time. I would have fallen over dEAD if that had been my bill. I thought $65 was a lot. Will go hug my stylist now.

My hair is naturally brown. But, I have so many gray hairs now. So, yes, I dye my hair blond. I think I look better with blond hair than brown. I also do it myself, but you can probably tell that from how it looks, lol!

I am a brunette. When I DID play with hilights, I wound up WAY blond because I hated any kind of roots. My hair looked BAAAAAAD.

I dyed it back brown and haven't touched it since. 5 years ago I guess?

The gray is coming in pretty heavy and it will just have to stay. I am just not a hair person.

Naturally, I have medium-brown hair with some light reddish-brown highlights. Since I started going gray at 15, I have been dying my hair. I believe my hairstylist uses ColorSync WNB.

I just went back to dark brown...fairly close to my own hair color and I've got some very subtle blonde highlights on the top...so far I'm loving this, but I have been a blonde for so long now, I wonder how long it will take me to get tired or bored of the brown...even though lots of people have complimented the change....and hubby absolutely loves it!

I am a natural brunette and I have never colored my hair. Unfortunately, I am now going pretty grey. It is time to make a decision and do something but I have not idea what to do. Some people say highlights but I am considering getting as close to my natural color as I can. ANy advice would be appreciated.

I like your hair in this picture - it looks very pretty!

I've never dyed my hair, so sorry, no stories here!

Tammy said...

Ok, first...I have NO idea what low lights and I have an idea what highlights are.

I'm 40 and a brunette. Started getting grey hair about 5 years ago and they just keep coming. I started with some sort of temporary wash in stuff and now get my brunette color done every couple of months.

Said I never would, caved and love it.

I am a brunette. In my younger California days (college) I did highlights. Which basically turned my hair red because I have a ton of auburn in my hair. Between the salt water of the pacific and my highlights my hair was a mess. I had my hair all chopped off right after I tied the knot and cut all that bleached out crud off. My hair was so healthy and pretty and brunette and I decided right then and there that I didn't want to be anyone other than who I really was hair wise. Now I do have to color away the gray and she puts a special color on my hair to keep the auburn from gettin brassy. But I know one thing for sure I would look AWFUL as a blonde! SO fair skinned scotch irish brunette here!

TAG YOUR IT! Go see my blog to find out why!

It's so nice to feel "right" about it all ... I am a red going gray (cinnamon sugar) and I don't have the desire to seek professional help because I don't think anyone can get me my real color, and I don't think I would feel right in anything else. So, I am slowly accepting the grays (can't pluck em anymore there's just too many). And your twins are DARLING!

I think that's a really good picture of you all! The boys are so cute! I highlight blonde, my hair color as a child. I found a more reasonable hair dresser too. I've found that you can pay alot, and still not have a good hair style/color. Then I get annoyed! :O)

I'm a natural girl. :) I've been every color in the book, but I finally gave up because I hated the upkeep. I suppose with all of the gray hair I'm getting, though, I'll need to something soon. :)
