    Hey all,

    So, I've been toying with going blonde for a while but the thing is I have quite dark brown hair and eyebrows (like almost black). My skin is very pale - there's a picture on my profile, although my hair isn't red any more, it's back to dark brown, and it's a lot longer without a fringe.

    Colorwise I want to look something like Sophie from Mamma Mia or a bit darker (like a honey blonde).

    Spoiler:

    Has anyone done this before? Do you think it would look really awful? I'd do it a salon, of course.

    Thanks.

    Personally, i think your face would look better with brown or black hair; i'd say in fact that blond hair would make you in the average looking, but darker hair would be sexy! (btw i'm a girl so it's not a weird comment or anything =P)

    That was the other thing I was worrying about...guh. Maybe I'll try one of those websites where you can upload a picture and "try on" different styles.

    haha! or you could go try on a wig or something, like those for Halloween...that could give you an idea of how you'd look!

    I wouldn't even bother spending 50+ quid at the salon, that hair colour you currently have doesn't look that dark.

    You could do it for under fifteen quid at home, with some Jerome Russell B Blonde (For medium to dark hair), and a semi permanent dye to put over in whichever blonde shade you wish.

    I did this, and I loved it! xx

    Ditto to this. Your hair looks nice dark brown. A girl in my maths class had died her hair blonde and looked so much better brunette. Blonde hair in my opinion is hard to pull off unless it's natural.
