I LOVE LOVE LOVE the red on you,it really suits your complexion and makes your eyes blue-er (if thats a word lol)

the only thing about red is,it is mega hard to dye over,I dyed my hair red about….hmmm 2 years ago??(roughly) and have dyed my hair brown over the top of it more times than I can count,but it keeps a reddish tinge to you hair. I only found out after that reds the hardest colour to shift ๐Ÿ™

So I solved that problem by just having bright red highlights and very very dark brown hair (done by a salon) which so far seem to have shaken off the red tinge!

I think the red really suits you though,it stands out more than your natural brown,looks good ๐Ÿ™‚

thats what I have, and all underneath my hair  is red,so you just get flashes of red every now and then(although its wearing out now so its goin a wee bit orange lol) I dont think it looks silly at all it really does suit you (and red is SO the hot colour this winter-according to my hairdresser lol) Your quite fair as well (like me) so it suits your skin tone,

Noooo, you do not look like Ronald McDonald!!!  I like it.  I think you are panicking because it is brighter than you are used to; however, from what my friends have experienced, red dye fades quickly, and hair stylists have told me that it is hard to keep a red dye vibrant.  A pp said that it will be hard for the red to be covered up….hmm…I’m not sure I agree completely.  I agree that you will probably have a warm hue to your hair until it grows out, but I think you can dye your hair brown, get rid of the red, but still have the warm effect.  Does that make sense?  There’s cool and warm hues.  In the sunlight, you will see a warm, honey, reddish hue to your hair….that won’t go away, but you can add color on top of it to subdue the red (not that I think you need to subdue the red–I’m just saying if you want to you can).

Phew, what a long and complicated post.  Let me reiterate: I like it ๐Ÿ™‚

I like the red, not at all Ronald Mcdonald! I agree it’s probably just one of those things where you aren’t used to it so it looks like a huge change. Also I agree with FutureMrs.Wood that it probably will fade a little bit anyways!
