Sure! I believe you can but it would take alot of trust in your hairdresser. Personally I love you dark hair with your skin tone. OMG thats a real squirrel..those things turn into little blurs of fury around here if you get too close. Congrats for being so brave. Thats for the haircoloring decision and the squirrel πŸ˜€

I’m sure you could! I think a light brown would look really pretty too

I would advise against it. I have similar coloring and went blond once and it was too drastic. That being said, why not get some highlights and gradually lighten over time? I think that will give you and other people in your life time to adjust to such a drastic change. Also, watch out that your hair can actually get the shade you want. When I tried to go straight blonde, I ended up with orangy undertones as is common with dark hair.

How are you getting a squirrel to eat out of your hand??

I think blonde would work. BUT: Whenever one of my friends switched to blonde, I thought it looked very strange. I think it was because I was used to it being brown. People who met her after going blond thought it was her natural hair color. So I think it really depends on the person’s perception.

I think you could, but I might choose a natural, cool blonde.

 

I think a rich brown would be the best though.

I agree about trying some highlights , something soft and natural looking to start and brighten you up a bit.

Tho, you are so beautiful, I personally see no need to make any changes.

Anyone seen Janine Turner lately?  She’s gone all the way blonde and itbis not flattering on her all.

Anyone can go blonde, but I agree with doing it slowly.  Start with a full head of foils first, you can gradually lighten the base colour as well as the foils.

It would be too drastic to do in one hit.

Try wearing a wig of the same lenth as your hair and seeing how you like it. Best bet without doing anything perminant. you could always do it and then die it back if you dont like it too!! easier fix hair when going fro light to dark. Most hair salons do a thirty day time line that if you dont like it you can come back and get it changed

You can go blonde, yes. But I would advise going to a Master Stylist to have it done. If you’re going blonde, it’s worth spending a bit more money to ensure quality. The MS will be able to show you color swabs and explain what will be most flattering on your skin tone.

Also, you can lighten your eyebrows to make it more cohesive.

Also Also- love the squirrel.

While I’m sure you CAN go blonde, I think with your coloring that you look beautiful with dark hair!!  Is that your natural color?  If so, it’s going to take a LOT of processing to get to blonde and be really damaging, trust me.  I’m a natural dark blonde, and just highlighting my hair (for years) has done pretty significant damage.

And…..what’s happening with that squirrel??

I have hair much lighter than yours (a medium brown) and I DO NOT RECOMMEND. I was fully blonde for approximately a year, and it was horrible. It was expensive, time consuming, and damaging. If I wanted “real” blonde, my hair probably would have fallen out, so my blonde was a honey, darkish blonde. Even then, my roots looked awful any time 2 weeks after it was dyed, and it was just such a hassle.

i think your natural color is beautiful.  a good friend of mine is filipino and has four sisters.  she is the only one who wears her hair natural and her sisters all have some degree of lightened or highlighted blond hair.  i think she stands out in photos of them together as having the most beautiful hair.  it isnt because im partial either πŸ˜‰ 

also, i want a squirrel friend.
