I personally looove how you look in the 2nd pic, with the shorter hair cut and that auburn-y red/brown. I think you could also pull off a true red, but I would just be cautious about it being too brassy. I also like you with the darker red/brown hair because I think it’s a nice contrast to your eyes!
I agree with everything hilsy said! 🙂 Love the cut in the second picture. It looks great on you!
I say you can pull of the Kate Walsh…it’s PWC and summer is coming – do something different than the unexpected 🙂
You can always go back to your engagement hair if you don’t like a brand new ‘do. I say now is the time to experiment!
@hilsy85: thanks! I kind of agree about the dark hair with blue eyes thing… thats why I have kept it dark for so long!
@pink.sequins: yea… I am feeling sad that Kate Welsh is losing in the poll which tells me I do kind of REALLY want to do it. And its just hair dye… red washes out so fast that I need to go in every 8 weeks anyways so at most it’d be 2 months of carrot-top if its a tragedy lol.
I love that haircut!
I definitely think you can pull of the Kate Walsh color. Try it! Worst that can happen is it doesn’t work, and color can always be fixed. Trust me, I tried coloring my dark hair platinum blonde….with a kit….from the Dollar store. 6 hours and $297 later, I looked like myself again!
Coming from a true redhead, I think you could pull off a true red if you really want it, but I think I still like the darker red on you.I like the way it brings out your eyes.
Plus you would probably have to color your eyebrows if you went a true red so it matches better. Kate Walsh’s are decently lighter (fyi- she’s not a REAL redhead! she actually colors her hair lol) but most redheads you see have fairly light eyebrows, so I think it makes a huge difference. My eyebrows are a slighter lighter red than my hair, but my mother’s are white blond.
Coloring your eyebrows isn’t a huge deal, but it’s something to consider because it is an extra step so just wanted to mention it!
@Linz1231: lol! Sounds like something I”d do.
@FutureMrsSitler: hmmm i didn’t consider the eyebrows thing. How does one dye their eyebrows? I wonder if my stylist would do it for me when she did my hair lol. But I feel like eyebrows prob wouldn’t last 8 weeks….
I have no real commitment to any hair color the older I get, but I have to say (as someone who has been blonde for most of my life) I LOVED my hair when it was red. Mine was a deeper red than the KW picture but I also have to say that it had to be retouched at about 3 weeks. It never lasted as long or looked as good as other colors, so it’s something to consider. When I tried a brighter,lighter red, it started to look pink in a few weeks, so that went immediately. Luckily my daughter’s a stylist so could do it for me as needed, but if you’ll be paying for it, it may end up costing more than you’re willing to spend.
I agree with everyone on the shorter cut and reddish brown. Very flattering!
