    basically with uni round the corner i really can't afford to be heading home to the salon every 6 weeks to get my roots done [i don't trust strangers with my hair so i won't be finding a hairdressers at uni...]
    and there's no way i could bleach my own hair without it going yellow
    and there's definitely no way i'm going back to my natural colour

    so i was thinking of dying my hair dark - because i figured i could probably do that myself without messing it up tooo much
    i've already been warned away from black because apparently i'll look 'washed out'
    but do you think this brown would suit me? or am i still too pale..

    Honestly I don't think blonde hair suits pale people, then they look totally white and ghostly :p: I'm really pale myself (to the point where I pretty much always have people asking me if I'm feeling OK) and have dark brown hair. I wouldn't say it wahses me out or anything, more just sort of frames my face and gives a bit of contrast

    I usually find myself oddly attracted to pale women who have dark hair. So in my opinion, yes, you'll look great with that dark hair.

    if u are really worried that it might not look good, buy a black hair spray [boots sells them] and try it on, if u like it dye ur hair, if u dont just wash it off.
    p.s if thats you on ur page, then i wd say you look fine like that too

    You should look fine, dark hair looks really nice on people with pale skin (though perhaps I'm a tad biased :P
    I reckon you'd be right to stay away from jet black, as it looks unnatural on the majority of people. Dark brown should be fine tho
