the streaks don't work with your pale complexion.


I'm done being meterosexual for the day now.

I say streak it, but do lots of thin streaks and get them a white-blonde color.

Or, if you're fairly bold, do one thick white streak a la Bride of Frankenstein. That'd be awesome.

Edit: P.S.: Attention whore! ;)

This is just my opinion, but I don't like the "hard", "edgy" look you seem to be going for.

Get rid of the streaks, pull your hair back away from your face, and smile!

I think that you would go from being pretty to really pretty. ;)

I already left my opinion in your LJ but I still think just leave it a nice brown color.. The red makes you look washed out.

I'd work on the hair styling before working on the hair coloring. You have a nice face and you're not framing it well with that parted down the middle hair style. You need to frame your face better to accent your beautiful features.

I don't like the hair color much, the red with blonde mix just doesn't seem right, but whoever is in that pic has gorgeous eyes. 'Regular' non-streaked brown hair would probably look good.......

professionally. in return for pictures, which makes it even scarier. pm me or im me on aim if you want to know the whole deal :p

the reason i asked here is because these are the kind of people im gonna see all the time. i know your appearance should be how YOU want it, but i also dont want everyone who sees me to think im ugly. im doing red no matter what though, and ive done it a million times before so i know itll look fine. its just the combination that im worried about. ive seen it on other girls but i dunno...

The red is too light for your complexion. I'd recommend a much darker shade; highlight that with a lighter red and a bit of blonde. You want layers of colour, not stripes.

Go for it. Worse happens you dye it again. Of course, this is coming from someone who's hair changes color every few weeks. ;)

I'd recommend not getting streaks...
I think it would look better with just a single red.

why not get Jennifer Anniston's style of color? hers looks good.

or consider going plain golden blonde.

whatever you do, go to a decent salon and get it done. in your picture it looks like you used that streaking kit they sell at Walgreens.
