    Ive naturally got almost black hair, but really pale skin
    And for a whole I've been wanting dark ashy blonde hair, kind of like drew barrymore's colour, with some high lights and low lights and darker roots

    I'm scared to go in for it incase I really don't suit it so I wanted opinions first


    This is my hair colour as it is right now

    You don't know if you suit it until you dye your hair and look in the mirror.

    In all honesty i dont think it would suit you.

    It would make you look incredibally washed out.

    And against your eyebrows it would really look odd.

    Ive been all colours from

    Red
    Purple
    Blue-black
    Black
    All shades of brown
    Bright blue
    And im currently bleach ash blonde.

    However my natural hair colour is quite fair and i have pale skin and blue eyes.

    Maybe you should try a really warm chocolate brown which i think would suit you nicely.

    Ive been brown before and weirdly even though my hair is dark, it REALLY just didn't suit me at all got rid of it straight away

    Only colours that have ever fit are pink, black, black and blonde and dark pinky purple

    But I want something completely different I'm so sick of dark hair

    You could ask your hairdresser what they think, they'll probably have some idea about what colour would suit you. My natural hair colour is light brown and I have pale skin and blue eyes, and I know blonde hair wouldn't suit me at all, I suit darker colours for some reason.

    Black hair and pale skin is way cooler than blonde hair, doing that would make you a dime a dozen. You probably would suit it but not as much as the black.

    most people who had blonde hair when they were a young child will suit dyed blonde hair but thats not always the case, i would ask the hairdresser

    Tbh, I don't think blonde would suit you. Like parry said, you'll look a bit 'washed out'.
    People can sometimes look better with a hair colour that is not their natural one, but you should not go all the way to the opposite. I'm naturally a blonde and I know I would never suit your hair colour.
    If you want a change, or something a bit 'softer' and less gothic, you're better off going for a medium brown and then add highlights of several beige tones.
    You'll have to go to a very good hairdresser and have them use many colours (for the best result) and it will most likely be very expensive but I think you'll look great with it.

    try a wig first? if you're still at school and have access to the drama dept then you could borrow a wig and look in the mirror? there aren't many ways to try it out. You could do a one-day wash-in-wash-out thing, but I'm not sure it would work effectively on your hair colour. DIY dyes always seem a bit dodgy. But I'm a guy, I have no idea what I'm talking about.

    I think that'll look good but seriously you are very unique by having natural black hair and pale skin. However i think a light brown would really suit you.
