The Right Color

I’m getting my hair done tomorrow. I was thinking of going darker. I saw this picture over on Simple Lovely sometime ago and have been holding onto it. A little darker on top and little lighter on the bottom. I was totally going to go for it. But now that I’m pregnant I’m kind worried about making any change. I know better than to cut my hair.. that was done with #1. And I suppose I could change the color if I hate it. Darker is just on the brain. But then I know me and I like bright when I’m feeling all washed out in the winter and looking a little tired from lack of sleep.
This one is quite lovely too and much closer to my current color.
Maybe we should all take a vote?
Have you seen any fabulous color jobs lately?

    I also love that first pic and it should be good for growing out if you are around the dark shade naturally. Doesn't hair do weird things when your pregnant, keep that in mind and DO NOT cut it short. ax

    Actually blonde hair will make you look washed out more than brunette shade will. Unless you have some kind of tan still going in the winter, blonde hair and pale skin looks very washed out. Brown would add more color to pale skin in the winter. That "ombre" hair is very pretty..just takes a very good stylist to create that look.

    I like the bottom picture but not the top one. I think top pic looks like summer color washed out, makes her look older. Try getting more lowlights with your highlights. Then you can have a touch of brightness with darker blonde. I have very blonde {naturally} hair, and the lowlights add depth and richness but not too much dark, esp. in wintertime & not too drastic. (ps. I got a mullet with baby #2 & not on purpose,the hair dresser told me it was 'trendy' cute…not at all! it was awful!!! hahah!!)

    I love your inspiration shots but my advice is to do nothing drastic when you are pregnant. I cut my hair off with number one and when my face got pudgier, I looked like an apple- terrible! I went darker with the second and when the pregnancy tired/pale face set in, I looked terrible again. I like having blonder hair when I am pregnant- just makes me feel less dumpy or something…silly but true. I would stick to what you know you love. But that's just me:) So excited for you and have a wonderful weekend!

    If you have brown hair- let it grow out! The darker roots look is fab-wish I was brunette…

    Love the color of her hair in that 2nd pic! Nice honey and brown tones!

    I think theyre both gorgeous but my vote goes to #2. #1 looks gorgeous but then again the model is gorgeous and her hair is in waves so the color looks better. I imagine this with straight hair as looking like you NEED a new color. I hope you'll post a picture of whatever you did! xoxo

    Both a goregous. Rich dark tones can be beautiful and not washed out at all.

    It can be such a dilemma to change the hair or not! xox

    I like No.2 as well. The warm tones make her complexion brighter and more alive. My opinion is that if you have a pale complexion v. dark or v. light just make you washed out. Warm browns seem to connect with any warmth you have naturally.

    I just did the top "ombre" dye job about a week ago because my roots have become insanely dark since having kids. I do like it, wish my hair was longer though (only shoulder length)and the root maintainacne will be much cheaper this winter. I did have my guy add a few blonde highlights to frame my face, just wasn't ready for the complete dark just yet. I plan on blonding back up this spring though. good luck!

    Although at first glance I like the first one more, I also feel it will be hard to pull off…I say stick with number two, it looks lovely and natural. Love your blog!

    Love the top one. Do it! I want the same but my hair is much shorter and it might not look so good!
