Hair Talk Thursday

August 18, 2011
I’m going to let you in on a little (not so) secret about me: I love to experiment with my hair. Over the years, I’ve had a lot of different hair colors and styles, never able to stick to one for very long, some more successful than others. Let’s take a little walk down memory lane, shall we?Ā 

Why, you might be asking yourself, am I posting about hair? Because I need your opinions, friends! I have a hair color scheduled for Saturday and I’m at a loss about what to do. For the past nine months, I’ve been growing my hair and bangs out, which isn’t going to change. And up until the wedding, I kept my hair color the same, too. And to be honest, I’ve been pretty happy with the color. I’ve got that “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” feeling going on right now.

Joey, on the other hand, has always been a fan of strawberry-blonde for me (like the photos below…try to see past the horrible bangs in the second photo). So I’m throwing it out to you all: stick with what I’ve got going right now, or move towards strawberry-blonde?

I desperately need opinions!

Happy Thursday! It’s almost the weekend!

    Personally, I love the color in the third picture. I guess that's not very helpful, now, is it?

    I don't know if I'm going to be much help, but I adore the dark hair + smoky eyes in the first photo. You look like a gorgeous model!
    If I had to pick a favorite everyday look, I'd go with photo #5. I like the blonde look.
    Have fun Saturday šŸ™‚ Show us what you decide!

    Honestly, you will look gorgeous with any hair color! But, I think my favorite is the 3rd from the top – chestnuty/brown. I love the paler complexion, lighter eyes with brown hair combo!

    As a natural strawberry blonde, I must confess that it is very easy to tell when someone has dyed their hair that color, and I can't say it always looks great, even if it is a skillful dye job. (Maybe because this kind of hair usually comes with freckles and very pink skin). I'd advise you to stick with the blonde-brown spectrum; it looks wonderful on you!

    I'm with Lisa–I love the third photo with the green shirt. šŸ™‚ Maybe you could start with just a few highlights or undertones of the reddishness and see if you like the gradual strawberry blonde? Rather than going for it all at once. I think it would look wonderful with your complexion, though!

    Wow! You sure know how to have fun with hair! I can't believe how stunning you look in so many different styles!

    I recently did a similar post on my blog! Except mine was about how my hair damaged. Yay! I think strawberry blonde would look really good on you!

    Above all, you pull off a broad range of colors and they LOOK AMAZING! Not everyone can do that and I'm talking about myself. Anyway, I really love the color in that first picture and my second favorite is the 3rd photo. Although I might be biased since I'm a brunette. šŸ™‚

    I wish I was brave enough to try out new hairstyles like that! You look great with all the colors but I love the strawberry blonde idea. I have to say that I love you with the dark hair, too, though!

  • Reply lindsay August 18, 2011 at 4:49 pm

    My first choice (without any hesitation) is the first picture!! I'm in love with your hair/make-up in that picture! It gives you some major style points. And goes amazing with your complection.

    My second choice would for sure be strawberry blonde with some thicker/longer bangs, like the very last picture of the model you posted! I love the color and cut!

    My least favorite would be the 3rd photo, with the brown hair. Nothing wrong with it.. you look beatiful no matter what.. but that one just seems the most boring to me. just bein' honest šŸ˜‰

    Sorry for over analyzing. I'm a hair stylist, so it's in my nature. haha. Well, what ever you do, I'm sure it will turn out gorgeous! You should post a before and after pic on saturday, after you get it all done!!!

    here's an idea…strawberry blonde hair (you'd look great with it) and a recipe for strawberry blondies (blondies with strawberries incorporated somehow? although, strawberries aren't really in season now).

    Mom's Comments: Since you're asking (and I've been able to witness first-hand ALL of your hair colors), my favorite has been photo #2 – so natural. A close second, however, is your color right now. You looked beautiful on your wedding day.

  • Reply Courtney Hughes August 18, 2011 at 5:37 pm

    Although my favorite color is the third from the top, as a natural strawberry-blonder….I think we have more fun ;)and I you should try it! You've done about everything else and they all look fabulous, so why not try it?

  • Reply lolamako August 18, 2011 at 9:55 pm

    Oh my, first and third pictures! Love the darker hair, and the bangs looked amazing!!!!

  • Reply Taylor August 18, 2011 at 11:45 pm

    I think strawberry blonde or some kind of auburn would be a perfect look for the fall!

  • Reply Jill Graff August 19, 2011 at 1:36 am

    We're going red together, remember?!

  • Reply Rosabela August 19, 2011 at 10:09 am

    It's hard to pick one – all colours look great on you, but the one I think looks stunning on you is the first one. You look like a famous movie star. šŸ™‚

    I think it's great that you're taking care of your hair. With 3 little ones at home (3, 2 and a 1 month old) I'm having a hard time trying to take care of myself. I put my kids' needs first. As long as I eat and get a good night's sleep, then I consider myself lucky (and happy).

    Looking forward to see which colour you pick for the wedding. Good luck! šŸ™‚

    I think the color in picture #3 looks absolutely gorgeous on you!
