Blonde vs. Brunette: The Lifelong Battle of What Color to Dye My Hair

I need your help!

I’d love a hair makeover for the premiere of our film at SXSW this year, but I’m not sure what style and color to go with!

I’m currently blonde, but have a paranoia that my blonde hair is actually a green-orange brassy tone and that makes me look like a crack whore or Sarah Jessica Parker (the next time someone tells me I look like SJP I will PUNCH THEM IN THE FACE!)

My natural hair color leans more towards brunette, but it’s more so a mousy gray blob color that deserves to NEVER SEE THE LIGHT OF DAY EVER AGAIN!

So my options are: have a professional make my blonde hair look less crack-whorey or dye my hair dark brown.

OH! And should I do bangs?

blonde or brunette

    Not sure if already got your hair done, but I really like your hair blonde with no bangs. Your eyes are gorgeous and I think that style compliments them best!

    I vote brunette with the bangs. The word bombshell comes to mind looking at your photo. It, also, makes me think of Charlotte Gainsbourg and Lou Doillon, who are two very bombshell-y French women.

    from these pictures brunette for sure! it looks AMAZING…so much depth .Blonde i think needs to be cooler tone…as its not as striking… blonde looks a bit washed out now so needs adjustments. But brunette looks mesmerizing.
