I'm a Redhead!



Those of you who follow me on Twitter/Facebook will already know that earlier today I was contemplating dying my hair.  I feel like I'm so pale right now and my blonde hair was too light for my complexion.  I will go back to blonde eventually (that's my natural colour anyway) but for now I want to experiment a bit!  I've always been a blonde so this was a real plunge to take!  I am naturally dark/dirty blonde but my mom is a brunette so I picked up a box of Clairol Nice'N'Easy in Dark Warm Brown (eek!).  It's non-permanent so it fades after 24 washes...which is just as well, because it turned my hair RED!  I actually really like it though...I never thought of myself as a redhead but this is Bree Van De Kamp red, which I love!  I think this would look strange on me if I were tan, just as well I'm so pale!

So, what do you think?!  Let me know in the comment section...which do you prefer, blonde or red?  I don't think I'll keep it like this, just because I never planned on it but in the meantime why not have fun with it?!  And finally, what colour do you think I should go for next??  Brown?  Blonde?  What shade?  I'm thinking brown with highlights.  Let me know what your opinion is!

Stay Stylish!

xoxo
Anna

  7. Hey Anna! It look gorgeous! I really love this color, following you on twitter too, so i didn't believe as i red "red hair" hehe.. it's cute! I think you can try a light brown with some undertone?:)

  8. Wow,.. I think your hair looks pretty good.
    It doesn't think it makes you look pale. Looks different, but good. More dimension.

    The colour,... like mine. :D

    What does Jonathan think?

  10. Wow.. OMG it looks amazing Anna! It makes you look totally different, glowing and younger! I cannot believe you got such a good result from a box dye done as an experiment!!

    I have not coloured my hair in years but this is totally making me want to take the plunge again! xx

  12. OMG, it looks so good. I honestly thought you weren't going to be able to pull it off, but you look amazing. I bet it looks better after you style it like you usually do.

  13. it looks very brown on the first photo and I LOVED that color! :D the other photos make it a biiiiit orange .. so I jut have to see it in your next video but I was iffy when you said on twitter you wanted to dye it but then you did and I saw the first photo and I gasped ! :D

    but I do think that if you don't like the red after a while you should defo dye it the brown color on the first photo !!! :D SOOOOOO PRETTY

  16. Anna it look so pretty one you. I did this too at the beginning of the winter. I went from light blonde to this color to dark chocolate brown. I got so many great compliments and I liked it for about 2 weeks then I just didn't feel myself so i'm gradually going back to blonde. right now i'm brown with highlights. My eyes are blue though so maybe you'll keep it. You are beautiful either way--- have fun with it.

  17. Oh wow! It looks good, I really like how the darker hair compliments your dark eyes!!
    I loved the light blonde, but the darkness goes with your eyes so very well, and the skin as well, it's awesome!
    In the first picture it looked kind of like a light brown with a slightly reddish-warm undertone, which I personally find fabulous on you! In the other pictures sometimes a very warm red seems to come through, which I don't quite love with your skin.. (I'm darkblonde naturally myself, warm undertone, and got warmer red-brown hair by accident & it washed me out soooo badly, so I'm biased ;) )- but when it doesn't come out that warm, it looks awesome!

    Next I'd vote for dark blonde, maybe with some highlights in the Garnier blonde color you had before, what d'you think?

    xoxoxo

  18. you look freaking fabulous!!!! amazing!!!

  19. WOW it's really fantastic! <3
    But you are pretty with blonde hair ,too!
    Maybe you dye it in summer blond! It would be nice for the summer days :)
    But this colour is so cute! Don't make it darker! It's a very very beautiful haircolour like it is now! ;)
    enjoy your new hair <333
    :o)
    next time maybe a darker blond ,than bevore, with highlights :)

  20. I think this hair color makes your skin look fresh and glowy, and it really makes your brown eyes pop. I like the auburn color, but I'm a brunette, so maybe I'm partial.

  21. Your red hair looks lovely, Anna, and what a fun change!

  23. Wow, looking very Jessica Rabbit! haha What a difference.. really makes your eyes pop, beautiful. Deep down I think you're a head turning blonde lol I think light brown with lots of caramel highlights would look great on you.. that would look absolutely gorgeous with a tan also. xx

  24. one word STUNNING!!
    You look insanely beautiful x

  25. blonde was deffo nicerrr but that does look good(: x

    ReplyDelete
  26. Anna, this colour was made for you!! Your complexion looks so radiant in contrast with the auburn. It makes your face look so chiseled and contoured like a supermodel! Absolutely stunning. I think you should think about keeping this look for a while. You look gorgeous as a blonde, but this is such a fun look to milk for a while. Now you have me contemplating going red! ahahaha.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I was doubtful of red as I'm a natural brunette and think red fades too fast and can be too brassy, but you look great! I think you'd look even better as a brunette, can't wait to see when you do it. It's great to experiment!

  28. That looks absolutely gorgeous, Anna! Suits you much better than the blonde:-)

  32. Your hair actually looks very nice this way bcuz your eyes r brown. But I liked you blonde too. Next, I would go with brown w/ blonde highlights!!!!:) x

    ReplyDelete
  33. this really does look amazing on your!! maybe get a few low lights on something if you get bored,the colour was made for you it looks so natural wouldnt guess its from a box dye! xxx

  34. OMG ANNA! u look gorgeous with red/brown hair!!
    i think it does make you look a lot healthier, and it makes your hair look in good condition too! i think you would look soo good as a kinda light brunette with warm blonde highlights too! xx

    ReplyDelete
  35. Anna, you look absolutely incredible with red hair, but I think that you are just as beautiful as a blonde. I'm convinced that you would make an amazing model, as you are so stylish (& you have the greatest cheekbones ;)

    Thanks so much for all of the wonderful advice on beauty & of course all things fashionable.
    Love the change!

  36. Yook look so cute- but I will miss blonde ANNA ♥

    ReplyDelete
  37. you look great with darker hair!! x

    ReplyDelete
  38. You look gorgeous. But It could be pretty with a darker shade. But go slightly darker, since you have dark blonde hair! ;) <3

    I have tried Nice´n easy products and they ALLWAYS turn out different than it looks on the package!! :S
    In October i used the dark brown one and it was supposed to last for 24 washes!
    And the color it´s still in my hair! :'( , and my hair got black...like a really ugly black!! You could see it didn´t look natural :'( and the color it´s still in my hair! :'( .....and now it´s like almost march!! :O never going to use them anymore more!!
    But i went to the hairdresser and got my hair highlighted, cuz she coulden´t color my hair( because then she had to use a really harch chemica to take away the color!) and then use a color on top! :S The highlights helped a bit, but the don´t blend in to the rest of the hair!! :( Just horrible :'( :'( :'( <3
    If you have brown hair never use the nice´n easy darker shades (24 washes)! Rather use the 6-8 washes, cuz the last longer than that!! ;) Just letting you guys know :) <3<3

  41. I LOVE LOVE the red hair on you. You definitely should keep it red for a while!

    ReplyDelete
  42. you look a bit like hilary swank... i like it!!

  43. I wish I were pale! LOL! I live in such a hot place, so I am too tan, and I hate it. I envy you, Anna! And I love your hair red, but I will miss blonde Anna!

    ReplyDelete
  44. You look amazing, Anna!! Totally different person! I would try also light brown, I think it would look the best on you :-)

    ReplyDelete
  45. oh noooo, what did you do to your hair??????????????????????? keep it blonde, please, you look younger with blonde hair...didn't you know that dark hair makes one look older? anyways you are cute

    ReplyDelete
  46. You look crazy pretty with the hair in this colour! Please keep it. You really, really should keep it.

    But if you must change try Casting Creme Gloss 530 Praline by L'Oreal. It's an ammonia-free (important as you have dyed your hair befor - we don't want bad reactions!) hair colour that gives hair shimmering tones and a glossy shine. It's a beautiful rich brown with undertones similar to your hair colour at the moment.

    But again - I think you should keep the colour you have now.

    Btw What Lipstick are you wearing? I MUST know. It's gorgeous.


    Love,
