Going from dark brown to Strawberry Blonde

dark brown to strawberry blonde

2017 is the year of the big change and one of my biggest change is my hair. I’m going from dark brown to strawberry blonde.

Like I said in yesterday post, I’m changing my hair colour. No more boring dull lifeless brown with a bit of faded blonde in. Hello to vibrant bright strawberry blonde. When I was talking to my husband about going strawberry blonde, his response was ”so you’re going ginger!” My response was ”what wrong with ginger?” ”Nothing” he replied ‘‘In all the year I known you, you never wanted to be anywhere near blonde, it always red hair colour for you.” True I’ve always been completely crazy for red hair but I like to think of myself as a little older and a little wiser.  Keeping red hair on a brown hair girl is not an easy task as the colour fade very quickly.

That was why I made the decision to go strawberry blonde, the colour should keep longer and if it does fade. It doesn’t really matter as I can always put on a new colour on top. Who inspired me with going strawberry blonde? There was a number of people such as Isla Fisher, Emma Stone and Christina Hendricks. I love their hair.

Before changing my hair colour, a few people said going from dark brown to strawberry blonde would suit me as I have quite the pale complexion. In face if anything I agree with them. Going dark would make me look like a vamp, so the only option is to go light.

Now I’ve coloured my hair I know I made the right decision. The colour worked well with my pale complexion, I think it give me a boost and doesn’t give me a washed out look.

    I don’t know if I’m not really good at hair colours, but I see it more as a natural redheaded colour. In my vision strawberry blonde must have some pink shades as well.

    What lovely colour very soft and pretty, it really suits you very hard for hairdressers to get exactly the colour you are asking for believe me I have had a fair few mistakes in my lifetime! luckily now my daughter is a hair colourist and is amazing at it, she always has a new colour herself as they specialise in colour at her salon and they do wild stuff like rainbow hair etc, a useful hint for you is that Bleach the company she woks for sell colours that you can put on at home to keep up the colour they put on in the salon you can actually get it in boots so its very handy if it fades at all

    You look beautiful! Good for you for taking a chance and changing your hair. I remember when I went from very blonde to dark brown! It was such an amazing time for me and I felt like “a new me!” I hope you feel the same.

    I’m thinking of changing my hair color too. I want something fun like purple, green, or dark brown with a burst of color on my bangs. My husband wants copper red or blonde (I hate to remind him I did all those when we were young, it’s not my fault I wasn’t good enough for him then.) 😉 hehe.

    Wow, that color looks great on you! I thought it was your natural color. It defiantly suits your skin and eye color. I’ve been a “redhead” for half my life already! I do switch it up from darker to lighter red though.

    I used to lighten up my hair in the spring/summer and darken it during fall/winter. Now I’m just old and gray. LOL

    Oooo! It is pretty! I have a niece with strawberry blonde hair, but she has brown eyes and freckles. It’s a cute combination but she hates it (of course). She thinks she looks like a ten year old!

    I think “strawberry blonde” suits you and looks very natural. I’m dark blonde/ light brown naturally (mousey) but have had highlights in my hair since always! I had a Saturday job in a hair salon at 14/15 & I used the “lightener” wella setting lotion to get my hair fairer! Around my mid 20s I left it natural but by 30 I went back to highlights and 20 years later I am still fair

    While I don’t want to change my hair color, per se, I do want some highlights added this year. I intend to do it as soon as I have the money.

    Good for you! It’s so liberating to make a big change like that. I recently cut 13 inches off and went from dark brown to very blonde. It’s so fun to switch it up every now and then and you look great!

    I have always died my hair but last year my resolution was to not dye my hair anymore. My color (auburn) has significantly grown out and now I am almost back to my natural hair color of black but I want to dye it again! I miss it.

    The hair definitely suits you and I agree dark hair on pale complexions tend to look too harsh. I think you made a great colour choice.
