Light brown on top and dark brown on bottom?!

by Cat

my natural brown color

my natural brown color

sooo, I naturally have medium to dark brown hair and I really want to go lighhttt brown on top and dark brown on bottom? I recently just got blonde highlights though (not in the picture) and i'm kind of sick of them so...

Also, I get wayy tan in the summer so I want to make sure it wont look tacky or anything, and I want to make sure that the light brown wont clash with my eyebrows being darker...any suggestions?!

Depends! :)))))

My hiar is exactly the same and im just kinda wanting a change! but if you are wanting kinda of a drastic change then do like a dirty blonde on top and leave your natural on bottom! but if you are wanting a little then you have a great idea! and u are very pretty!

maybe you should do the opposite way, the top stays dark and the bottom dyed to lighter blonde.

Ok listen
by: Jordan

I totally no how you feel. M hair is just like yours and im so tired of it. Look at Victoria Secret model pictures and you can find some good ideas for hairstyles!!! lights on top are good but if you go BLONDE BIMBO it will look horrible!! say with a natural look to whatever you decide and remember its just hair you can always die it back but The blonder you go the harder it gets to go back see ya

My hair isn't as dark as yours but i reckon jus get slightlty lighter highlights coz thats what im thinkin for mine, my friend had similiar done n it looks real nice coz it still kinda looks natural coz they fade into each other the natual n highlights n then its easier to go lighter if you like just get lots of thin highlights but only a slight colour change (Y)

Add some light brown
by: Mercedes

Your hair already has such a beautiful colour to it. My suggestion would be to add light brown highlights to it, but only a few shades lighter than your natural hair colour... it will give you a more natural look as opposed to doing blonde highlights.

My suggestions for your hair
by: Shannon Sears

Missy your hair is absolutely gorgeous not to mention your beautiful too. I honestly suggest not light brown, not light blonde or any of those. I think you would look good with a tint of redish brown highlight. I only suggest that only if your that complexion year round. but if you don't like redish brown then a not light brown but a tint darker then a light brown would look good in your hair if you wanna do brown highlights.

If you want to lighten it put some caramel highlights in it. It will lighten up your color and bring out the bronze of your skin when you tan. It will be lighter but not skunk looking.

You really shouldn't change it, that's the nicest hair color ever. Not a lot of brunettes have this exact shade, it looks amazing. You'll regret changing it.

Jan 03, 2010
by: jane

I think your hair looks absolutely beautiful and you should've kept this color because it makes your eyes looks lighter and your eyelashes look heavier which all in all makes your lashes look larger . I love y our hair in this picture and think that you should dye it back to this color. I think i am going to dye my hair the same color of your hair because i get lighter in the winter and really dark in the summer like you and this really looks like a hot color on you .

Suggestions for you :D
by: Oanh Kim Nguyen

if you want to do something in between with light brown and medium brown i have three suggestions
1. medium hair top and light brown at the bottom, not light at the top and dark at the bottom.. bad idea!
2. dark brown with light brown streaks works also, kinda like a highlight.
3. the outside layer medium brown, and the inside layer with the really light brown..

Listen to this: GOOD ADVICE
by: the person who gives great advice :)

hmm. now im not going to tell u wt to do w/ ur hair. i mean its ur choice! but, if u want advice well here goes: I believe that ur hair looks veryyyy pretty the way it is in the pic. but if u want to do something to it i would suggest a dark to medium brown on the botttom( something darker) and maybe a light brown or caramelish color on the top or just get highlits in those colors. Oh and ur eyebrows will look great no matter wat color ur hair is. Leave them be and just tweak ur hair a bitt if u really want a change! hope i helped ya! good luck!

Beautiful Hair
by: stephanie

You should try something new with your hair. Because you already have blonde highlights, or at least had them when you wrote about this, you should highlight the crown of your hair a light blonde color. Color most of the hair except for a little bit of your natural hair color peeking out. Leave your natural hair color on the underneath of your hair alone. Maybe you could consider this. Thanks for listening! :)

please dont die your hair. mine was the SAME exact color & i got bored with it. i dyed it SOOO many colors. black, blonde, purple, red. blonde on top & natural on bottom. & now i just want my natural color back & i cant get it. without growin it out & it being super two toned. i recommend you keep your color & just add little highlights.

Hair :p
by: Mikayla

Well, I have about the same eyebrow color as yours. I have naturally light light brown hair and it went fine with my eyebrows. Then, I dyed my hair dark brown and it went perfect! So, what I am trying to say is light brown eyebrows pretty much go with any hair color!

Love love love your look. You're one of the most beautiful girls I've seen. And cute. Cute's always important. And you hair color, perfect. If you really wanted to change it, I'd suggest using the temporary colors that wash off just to try it out first because you don't want to downgrade a beautiful thing.

low lights
by: Anonymous

I went to high school with you! Random, I just googled images of carmel/blonde highlights to bring into my hair colorist and your picture was on the first page. Funny!
But you should try low lights, light brown, maybe subtle Carmel and your natural color also.

I am a hair dresser and I hope this can help you!!!
by: Michelle

You would look pretty but the only problem is if you go supper light on the top it wont look natural and wen it starts to grow out you will be able to see the brown really well! Another thing is you have a very good chance of ruining ur hair, since your hair is so dark. So I would try maybe a really light brown or a dark blonde, not supper light colors as highlights all over the top to make it look like you completely died it blondish. If that makes any sense!!!? and make sure if you choose to do this to have different shades of blondish brown so it dosent look flat and fake! I hope I helped and I hope you understood what I said!!!!! :)
