Now that the wedding is over, I’d love to do a little change with my hair. I’m usually one all for drastic changes, as I’ve cut my hair progressively shorter as time has gone on, and at one point it was very bright red (which I loved!). I have thought for a long time that black hair would look beautiful against my skin tone, and with my pixie cut, but I’m not sure. It would be super difficult to get rid of if I decided I didn’t like it, and my hair grows fast so the upkeep would be a lot. Also, I was thinking of doing maybe a more brown based black so I don’t look washed out, but I’m not sure since I’m always so paie. Here are some photos of me with other colors for reference: (note they are all different lighting, sorry!)
This is me with the very bright red color:
A darker brown:
As close to my natural hair color as I have a photo of (I think it’s mostly natural except for the highlights)
And this is my hair at the wedding:

I think black could work, but a really dark espresso brown might be even better!

I was thinking dark brown before I read your worries about black. So yes, I wouldn’t dye it all the way black, but probably dark brown.

I hate, hate, hate black hair dye. It’s evil. I do like the look of black hair though so I dye my hair with the darkest brown, it looks nearly black but the color comes out so much more easily when I want to change colors.

I’d do a really dark brown. You have such cute hair!

I was just going to say the same thing as a few PPs did, that a very dark brown would look hot! Black might be a little too intense since you’re fair skinned? I’m sure you’d rock it anyway, though. 🙂

I don’t think black would best suit you. I agree with the PPs that say a really dark brown if anything.

Here’s me with black hair in 2009 and my natural red in 2010 (don’t ask me how I got the red back. I was lucky. I think the black wouldn’t hold anymore). The up keep of it SUCKS hardcore. As you can tell in the 2009 picture – my hair was fading already and I think I just dyed it recently. I hated it. Loved the color on me though.

Oooo black would actually look super cute! So would dark brown. But your highlights in your natural hair looked cute too… Your hair is so versatile, I’m jealous!
What about a wash-in/wash-out black hair colour? To test it out?

You would look awesome with black hair

I would do a super dark brown that is almost black. I have naturally pale skin with very dark brown hair, so the combo does work.

First off… LOVE your eyes lol. They are gorgeous. I have brown eyes too and am a fan of it.
I think we have similar skin colours…. I have darker brown hair and love it. I wouldn’t go black… maybe a dark ash brown? Black may make your skin tone a bit too pale.

i love the way black hair can look but from personal experience if you EVER want to change color its going to be hell! trying to get black out sucks so bad! i would opt for a dark chocolate brown instead – i think you would look lovely with really dark hair.
if you do choose to go black – be sure to get it done professionally. Boxed color is just really really hard to get out of your hair.

Yes, black would look great on you. I’m a little envious of how well you rock short hair!
