    I would DEFINITELY not do it, my old roommates hair was slightly lighter than yours and she dyed it red.  She really regretted it.  I love your natural color, if you want a change maybe darker it a tad?  I personally do not think the red is flattering on you – sorry ๐Ÿ™

    I think the red really makes your beautiful green eyes really pop.  Very flattering.

    Pale skin, blue eyes and red hair are just a natural fit. ๐Ÿ™‚ That’s my personal look so I love the red hair!

    I think your skin tone compliments the red really well. ๐Ÿ™‚ I also think the brown looks good, too. You have very shiny, healthy looking hair so I have to say I really like both.

    Go with red for a while! Why not? Red is the hardest to maintain which means it washes out the quickest so if you decide you don’t like it, it is very each to change it back.

    I went red before, but it faded back to something close to my natural color. Here is a before and after:

    I like them both, but the red is really flattering on you. My natural colour is dark brown and I went to red a few years ago. No regrets whatsoever! air makes my pale skin look nice instead of goth-like low it was before.

    @countrygirl12:  What color are your eyes naturally? Are you wearing contacts in one of the pictures? In the brown hair pic your eyes are a pretty blue.  In the red head pic, they are a beautiful green.  Both are so pretty!  I say Go for it!

    You could always get some mahogany low lights.  You’re pretty both ways but I prefer your natural hair color better.

    I’m also a brunette; I’d love to have played around with hair color but I work in a pretty conservative, male-dominated industry and I already feel like I attract enough attention as a woman.

    Red looks great on you! I’m also naturally a brunette, but I’ve wanted red hair since I was a little kid, so I started dying it when I was a teenager

    if you go red, make sure you pick the best shade for your skin tone.

    I voted red! It is hard to maintain like others said… but it looks beautiful on you!

    I LOVE the red, it looks really really good on you.   My hair is naturally a meduim to dark blonde with a whole bnch of natural highlights from the sun that are anywhere from yellowish gold to almost white.   I’ve never dyed my hair, and I’d LOVE to try red like yours, but I’m afraid it will be ugly and I’ll never be able to get my colour back  :/

    In your case, I’d absolutely do it.  If and when you get sick of it, you can just find a colour that’s closest to your natural colour and dye it back brown  ๐Ÿ™‚
