blond or brunette?

Photobucket 

I've never been really adventurous with my hair... crazy words coming from a hairstylist right? :) Shortly after Eric and I got married I did cut 15 inches off... and I loved it. Of course, I don't really have pictures to show off... blogging has really changed my life when it comes to documenting and picture taking :)
Anyway, I've really been craving a change (without chopping the hair) and this is the result! I know it's hard to tell by pictures, but I added quite a bit of brown through my blond locks, and it's changed my look quite a bit! More than I was expecting :) I've always been blond, and I love it so much, but I'm thinking I could add a lot more brown. I guess we'll see what I come up with next... and hope the husband still loves me if I'm no longer a blond! ;)

It looks great! I can't believe you're a stylist who isn't obsessed with changing her hair! I work at a salon and someone's always trying something new. :)

Bon Bon said...

I have a blonde friend who constantly goes darker in the fall: she's done brown and red. It looks stunning, especially with some baby blues! xoxo

Natalie said...

It does look great! I would be interested to see what you would look like as a full brunette...I think it would make your eyes really stand out :)

Megan said...

You are SO pretty!! I've been missing you while I was away this weekend!

Steph@ Living The Young Life said...

umm from one hair dresser to another i love love it!!! i do this alot in the fall... and i got a little more and more till i get the brown just right.. then in the summer its blonde again.. of course the blonde in me is always there but i still like to see some demention in the winter months.. it makes ur skin color look not so pale..

Jessica said...

ooh i love the brown in your hair!! I wish I could do my own, I'd def be changing it all the time! I'm in need of a change too- thinking about chopping it off again and going back dark for the fall/winter..

Our Little Bubble said...

looks fab! always good to go a bit darker in the fall. how about some medium auburn added into dark blonde?? I'm sure it'll look great whatever you choose!

Jen said...

You're sooooo cute. I think it's great, especially for fall! And I love your hairstyle too.. the bangs, the length, everything!
xoxoxo

Jen said...

Oh, and when we meet... you're doing my hair :-)

Ashley said...

I love love love that look on you. I had my hair similar in college, and I've been wanting to go more blond with dark brown underneath for a long time. It looks great!

Megan and Justin said...

love it! i can definitely see the brown!

whitney tomlin said...

I love it! And I definitely think you could rock the brown. It'd be a fun change for fall :)

Vivian said...

You look PERFECT! STUNNING!!

Cara said...

I agree, blogging has changed my life when it comes to pictures.
Thanks for stopping by on my blog. I always love meeting new friends :)

monster cakes said...

Ooh me likey! I've always loved the darker underneath look. And I TOTALLY know what you mean about how strange it is to hear bloggers talk on vlog posts for the first time. Even when I listened to it, I thought, is that really what I sound like? haha I don't think I normally sound quite so... girly? I dunno. Anyway, I'm so glad you like sweet potato fries as much as me. Mk that's all for now. Have a good day doll face! xo

Crowley Family said...

It looks great! I think you should try going all brunette and if you hate it just dye it back. I go back and forth all the time.

Autumn said...

I love the depth it adds to your hair :)

Marz said...

Beautiful!! :) And now you can have the best of both worlds ;) I am so envious of your perfect bangs. You have the "Reese Witherspoon" bangs I'm always trying to get!

Lauren said...

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your hair!!!! :) I think you should put more brown in it! You're gorgeous! <3

Mrs W said...

do it, take the plunge and dye it dark! You'd look beautiful regardless!

Shelley said...

Very pretty! I love it!

Emma Frances said...

So cute! And you could definitely pull off even more brunette if you wanted to! Also, I want to see pictures of your hair after you chopped of 15 inches. You should look for some!!!

I have been growing my hair out for a LONG time now because my husband likes my hair long but he finally said I could chop it off if I wanted. {He saw some pictures of me from when we were dating and I had short hair and he remembered how gooood I looked. Haha.}

French Lover said...

You look great! And I'm pretty sure you could rock a rich chocolate brown, too! I've been wanting to change my hair up, too! And your husband will love you blonde, brunette or ginger just the same, trust me :))
Bisous!

Jennifer said...

looks great!

Pop Champagne said...

your hair turned out really well! I think the brown strands look lovely layered like that, awesome!

Amanda said...

You look gorgeous! Brunette or blond will work for you...unfortunately, for me, I won't ever be a blond, but I've always wanted to be....

dottie said...

I love it with Brown in there! Do it for winter! Then lighten back up for Summer. You can rock both worlds girl!

Sara Shoemaker said...

I love it! I have long hair right now and am totally clueless with what to do with it lol I wish I could style it like yours. Love the brown peeking out, very pretty!

McKenzie King said...

i love it! especially with fall and winter right around the corner. it's so cute. but let's be real, you look gorgeous blonde and besides, blondes have more fun. proven fact. but change rocks, so rock the change.

Melanie said...

How the heck did I miss this post! Ok. First of all, thank you for like the sweetest compliment EVER! I really think some of those hair coloring fumes got to you... lol!

You are STUNNING pretty! It's really not fair, you are one of those girls that has the perfect face for any hair color. I have this seceret want for being a blonde, but let's just say it would be scary! Hubby Eric has the best of both worlds, HOT blonde & a gorgeous brunette!

P/S I think you should try Total brunette someday. We could be Bloggy Brunette Besties! I will stop now. Lol. Bye my luv.

Chelsea said...

I am such a fan of this. It really looks so good, girl! I love shadow boxes. It makes you hair look really thick and healthy, too!

Such a pretty person.

Gorg! I rarely do anything with my hair b/c I don't like having to spend so much money on the up-keep of highlights and the like. My grays are coming back through my dark brown with a vengeance, though. Grrr!!

Jennifer said...

Oh I love the brown underneath! I've always liked that look. I took a leap and went to brown 6 months ago. I've always been blond too...except that one time I accidentally went red...long story. I think you could pull of anything!

Mandi said...

It looks so good! I love it! You are definitely still gorgeous.

Hollie Ann said...

15 inches?! I doubt mine is even 15inches long ;)I'd have to do a buzz cut! Hahaha. BLONDE!! :)

Hollie Ann said...

PS-I think you're still "blonde" But I love the not totally bleach blonde look!

P! said...

Oh. YES! I LOVE the change! You look rockin', lady! That is gorgeous. Got my approval. :)

Sarah said...

Looks beautiful! I know what you mean , sometimes I crave a change too. Since I know I would be a horrible blonde, Im stuck as a brunette =)
