    My hair is naturally dirty fair but I've had it dyed everything from dark brown to the platinum blonde it is now. I'm thinking of having it a warmer shade for summer though. Any suggestions?

    Apologies for the terrible photo by the way; good lighting is impossible in my halls' room :/

    maybe try a honey blonde if you want to stay light for summer? then gradually get darker again going back into winter?
    hope this helps!

    Maybe have some bright colours put through it? Pink or purple? Adds a bit of interest Or if you want to colour all over, perhaps an auburn shade?

    I've been considering putting pink or lilac streaks through it for a while but my hairdresser always puts me off it because they fade really quickly (?). I really liked the lilac idea but she said that they tend to turn grey after a couple of weeks. So have you ever had a similar colour/ does it look really bad when it fades?

    I had pink and purple semi-permanent colours put through my fringe a couple of weeks ago which washed out fairly quickly, but a permanent colour shouldn't fade too fast as you have such light hair. Perhaps using a purple/silver shampoo would help? I'll ask my hairdresser about the colour fading next time I see her!

    Keep it as it is, you don't really see much of the vintage 90's lesbian look these days.
