New Hair Color!

EDIT: OMG Heath Ledger is DEAD?!?!?!?!?! NOOOOOO, I loved his movies.... RIP Heath Ledger.

Howdy y'all!

Ok, last night my friend MyMy dyed my hair. We bought Matrix shade 8A - Medium Ash Blonde. I thought that since my hair is really dark, it would turn into a light brown color.... I was WRONG! It came out really light light brown, near strawberry blondish.... it's so hard to describe!!! LOL I dunno, hopefully my roots will fade so that it doesn't look that light, but it definitely is different.... I haven't made up my mind if I like it or not, but I definitely will work it out. I just thought I'd drop a note to let y'all know.

Btw, we purchased this hair color at a professional salon supply place. Her mom owns a nail salon so she's able to buy items from there. I'm not sure if it can be found at Sally's or not... sorry y'all.

Also, I did buy a few items from the N Collection. I bought:

Rich Flesh e/s
Remotely Grey e/s
Modest Tone e/s
1N l/s
3N l/s
Light Flush MSF
Warmed MSF

However I haven't used the MSF's yet. I loved the eye shadows. They are great for a nice neutral eye, as well as smokifying it. I did use some of my new products to a party last Thursday. I wore it to the Sigma Chi & Alpha Phi Alpha Black & White Party. So much fun! Damn, single life is AMAZING :) I wore all black and added some white accessories. I bought some new Michael Kors boots on sale, they are currently my fave at the moment.... this is before I dyed my hair, also for comparison...





FACE:
Studio Fix Fluid
Studio Finish Concealer
Armani Powder

Now onto my hair... Hahaha ok, I've worn it for a day now. Its growing on me. I like how it's different from my old hair. I want to dye it more brown, but what do y'all think? Do you like it lighter or darker?

LOL my friend MyMy did my hair at her house, and we had to go out to pick up her sister... so I had to be all ghetto and go out with a plastic bag on my head hahahaha



What the hair looked like wet.... My skin is so gross right now. I have no clue why I started breaking out again... stress.



Taken at around 6:30 AM today.



The flash makes it look a lot lighter...





So honestly (but not necessarily rudely) tell me what y'all think. I'm going to keep my hair like this for a few weeks or so just to let my hair get over being dyed, but do y'all like it light or dark? I'm off to study accounting! Have a great night.


Peace <3

  3. ooh - looking forward to seeing the new hair! I've always wanted to go lighter, but ever since I tried bleaching and dying my hair in hs, I stay in the chocolate brown/deep red territory, haha.

    ReplyDelete
  4. sooo looking 4ward to see the hair and yeah if u have N collection love to see a review...thanx x

    ReplyDelete
  5. I WANT TO SEE. LOLz. You're a cutie so even if the hair color isn't right - you'd still be good looking no matter what.

    ReplyDelete
  6. I want to see! So exciting!! Did you find at Sally's?

    ReplyDelete
  7. hmmm,
    i like your darker hair better b/c this new color looks orange, idk if its cuz of the flash or not...
    and when you do your black eyeliner, the light hair looks really strange.
    maybe you should try colored contacts? :D

    ReplyDelete
  8. I think you should keep it whichever color you like. When I dyed mine i heard several comments from friends like "no, u look better with black hair" or "if you make it anymore lighter you'll just look cheap" - it kinda made me feel bad but at the end of the day its my hair and i think i look better with the color i have now. and plus now I think i am making more heads turn (to look at me). I get sick of my black asian hair so its a good change to go a little lighter. Hope you like your hair too! u look good either way. -Baby

  9. hey girl! you look so cute in your outfits! and cuuuute boots! when i first saw your new haircolor i was like, whoaaa, but i went back to your pics a moment later and thought it actually looked good on you. i think at first, i just needed to get used to it cuz it's a lot lighter than your usual colors. to no surprise, you can totally pull this color off, especially during summer months. damn, you can pull off anything!

    ReplyDelete
  10. wow that must be a powerful hair dye that made your hair 4-5 shades lighter. honestly, i prefer your old hair color. i don't know, i just think you look gorgeous with medium/dark brown hair, it makes your eyes pop. beside, i'm not a fan of hair colors with orange tone. but hey, everyone gets tired of their hair color sometimes (including myself), enjoy your new hair color! :)

    ReplyDelete
  11. I like it keep it!!!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Girl the color you want will eventually show. I've died my hair many times before and within a week the color comes out the way you wanted it. I really think both light and dark are fine on u. I just honestly think it looks a bit dramatic since it hasn't really been a week to show its real color and takes time to adjust.

    ReplyDelete
  13. I think it's a change, and change is good. IMO the darker hair does contrast and bring your beautiful face more into the spotlight, but this is cute too. I have black hair naturally and every time I lighten it people freak out, but you know we get bored too! LOL. Anyway just enjoy it, and if you hadn't tried you would have always wished you had! I think the roots are a tiny bit brassy, so if it doesn't go with time, you can buy that L'Oreal Natural Match in a neutral tone similar to your color. It only deposits color doesn't strip, so your hair won't suffer, and it'll take out the brassiness. Have fun!

    ReplyDelete
  14. the dark hair was better.. but the light hair aint that bad. i dont know if its the camera or what, but your roots look lighter than the rest of your hair. I think youd look nice with your old hair color and some highlights like light brown highlights? or maybe you should keep that light hair color and dye the underside of your hair a darker color. would look cute (;

    ReplyDelete
  15. WHAT HAPPEN??? It looks orange. YIKES!

    ReplyDelete
  16. i liked your dark hair more

    ReplyDelete
  17. what was your hair color before?

    ReplyDelete
  18. I think the color is awesome! You should definitely keep it. It's almost like the color of my hair but lighter lol. I'm planning on going lighter again sometime.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Yikes, that some uber strong hair-dye if it turned your hair that shade of blonde/light brown. To be honest, I liked your hair on the darker side...idk, maybe it's because the flash is washing out the color and it's making your hair look orange-y.

    Anywhoo, those are some hawt-ass boots!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Id put a brown on top of it, it looks...cheap, and ur overall look is fashionable but this color brings it down a lot. Orangy colors also have the effect of washing a person out. Maybe try highlights if u want to go lighter without being drastic.

    ReplyDelete
  21. i think it will just take time to adjust...when ppl dye their hair light ppl usually go YIKES! 'why you do that?' but after awhile they get used to it

    ReplyDelete
  22. hi! the lighter color looks fine and it is a nice change, but i do think that the darker hair complemented your gorgeous face more.

    i love your boots!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Honestly, you really can pull off lighter colors but I personally think if you go too light you may look washed out & pale/colorless. Im liking it... i think? , but I'm used to you with darker hair so I can't really say at the moment. Maybe some highlights would make it look better. I like the hairccolors that jessica alba wears, like a medium honey brown would look lovely. Experimenting is fun so I think do as you please. If you like it then that's all that matters. Now that I looked at it more it really does suit you well. Maybe the flash just made it look a bit orangish. you've got great hair so please dont dry it out by dying too much, make sure you dont die for awhile as you said before, maybe the color will get darker as you wash it. i heard that if you want the color to really adhere to your hair your suppossed to not wash it for a few days to prevent color wash out. I think you'd look really nice with a color like this: http://www.aolcdn.com/red_galleries/jessica-alba-400a0524.jpg

  25. Keep the hair, looks great, a good change. I wanted to dye my hair again. I dyed it black and had it black for 2 yrs now i think. I use to dye it red, and it fades to brown in my HS/university yrs. N the dying would continue every 4mths. Then i got bored, and thought it be more appropriate if i was back to my Asian roots for work. Plus it was kinda annoying dying my hair every 4 mths to keep the colour.

    ReplyDelete
  26. i think the lighter hair makes your face a little washed out (unless it's just the flash in the camera?). but it makes you a bit pale, i think... the dark hair looked better on you.

    from the looks of your picture... your boots look soo cutee! where was it on sale at? i know you're like in texas or something... but just curious.

    ReplyDelete
  27. one of the worst things to do to your hair is to box color it & use patene pro v for shampoo & conditioner. so next time just go to the salon ..

    ReplyDelete
  28. hey babes i like your hair darker...the new hair looks abit orangish..you still pull it off very nice, but i still love the dark on ya :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. I liked your hair before. I think this would have been fine if it wasn't on the orange-side. I think if you like it but want to get rid of the orange, I suggest toning it. This kinda washes out your skin. But it's not that bad.

    ReplyDelete
  30. oO i do like it! it's definitely different so at first it takes you a bit back to see you with different colored hair, but i do like it. the only thing i'd say is that it makes your face look a bit pale? i'm not sure what it is exactly, perhaps the contrast is what causes it. nevertheless, i hope you're able to give us a review on your N collection soon! :D tell us if you decide to change it...

    ReplyDelete
  31. thanks for your honest opinions everyone! truthfully, i haven't made a decision on if i like it or not. i'm going to wait a few days to decide. i think the thing that makes my hair crazy looking is the roots. they came out really light and orange, whereas the rest of my hair is more of a light brown... so cross your fingers that it'll fade out a bit.

    like some of y'all have said, if i keep dying my hair its going to get really unhealthy so i want to be positive with my next course of action before i decide...

    my hair color before was a medium brown color... don't remember but my roots started to grow out like whoa. i agree that the hair color washes out my skin, and my eyes don't seem to pop out as much. oh well, i'll still give it a few days.

    and to my anonymous who sent me the blonde and blue pic, thanks a lot hahaha i thought it looked really cute. i'm going to post it if you dont mind :) just let me know if you want me to take it down.

    ReplyDelete
  32. hi stephs!. I think you just need to apply a toner (a violet or blue-based toner) to tone down the orange brassiness. The violet/blue combined with orange will give you a nice light brown. That way, you don't have to go darker again, but you have more of a light AND natural color. You can also try a violet shampoo first if you don't want to buyt a toner. They have it at sally's.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I LIKE that hair color!

    I dyed my hair a similar color last August, but it didn't turn out looking so swell on me :( Probably because I'm too pale to pull it off.

    I did notice that it really emphasized any zits I had, and my skin looked a lot creamier once I went back to my usual darker color.

    ReplyDelete
  34. The makeup and outfit are totally cute! I was going to go out and get a few of the lippies, 1N or 2N I can't decide, and also the Soft Ochre paint pot. Did you try soft orchre? I think it'll look fab.

    As for your hair..I prefer the old hair color. I'm not much of a fan for the orange-y colors (kinda too aZn for my tastes) But I agree that you should wait a few days and see how it goes, you don't want to over dye your hair!

    ReplyDelete
  35. hey stephie...the color will eventually fade...i had my hair that same exact color...this will be a cool time for you to experiment with other colors when putting on make up since you have lighter hair...you may want to lighten your brows to bring that washed look down...bringing more attention to your eyes. smokey eyes would be a great look on you..bringing more attention to your eyes....

    ReplyDelete
  36. I bought matrix's color in red and its damnnn red! its a very strong dye. I bought mines at Davidson and you have to have a cosmetic license to buy anything from there. The hair dye and hair curlers are pretty cheap. Anyways, I liked your dark hair better. maybe u can do your top the old color and the botton your new color? thats just my opinion thouh. I did my top a light blonde and bottom dark brown and people said I looked weird at first but it turns out good now!!

    ReplyDelete
  37. i think darker hair lookos nicer on you, becaused your new hair makes your skin tone look... weird. haha, i dont know how to explain it.

    ReplyDelete
  38. oh I think that new hair colour suits you! I wanna go lighter again too but a little more red... as in rose mcgowan red

    ReplyDelete
  39. Did you switch foundation or something? It looks a little off and thick. (Not to be mean or anything - just pointing it out.)

    ReplyDelete
  40. no i didn't switch foundations. i just put on way too much powder lol, i was rushing and i got a ton of powder on my brush... whoops :D

    ReplyDelete
  41. Hey... I like you better with darker hair but this color washes you out..

    ReplyDelete
  42. yay for new do! i just had mine cut today too..anyhoo, i like you with dark hair, but change is always good, ..i was thinking maybe, chunks of highlights would be nice too. but i say, just go with whatever you're comfortable with and what you really like! :)

    ReplyDelete
  43. You look great with the light hair. The pic from 6:30am looks good considering it is the day after! I think the flash distorts the true "in person" color from your last pic. I hope you keep it b/c it you'll be able to create new makeup looks with your new hair color for all of us to love love love!

    ReplyDelete
  44. THAT LOOKS HOT!
    my friend has dark hair and she use Loreal Ash Blonde but it came out dark brown
    so i guess you've just got yourself a good hair dye!

    i think i might go brown too... what do you think?

    ReplyDelete
  45. I love that pic of you with blue eyes and light hair. I wish someone would do that for me.

    ReplyDelete
  46. the lighter/orange roots are probably b/c that's virgin hair, so it's going to get hit by the dye a lot more - I like the color, but it might be better for spring/summer. I think the dark hair played up your features better, but that's just my opinion...I know it gets boring having dark hair all the time :)

    oh, my BF was looking over my shoulder as I was paging through blogs and saw your ghetto plastic bag & hair dye pic...and all he had to say was "where did she get those Cheetos?!? I need to find them!"

    ReplyDelete
  47. i like the color of the bottom half of your hair, i think if the top darkens out a bit to that color, it will look even cuter :) i like lighter hair on you too, i think its like one of the other girls said, in a week or two the color you really want will come thru and you'll probably like it more. i have very dark hair so i'm biased when i say it doesn't look bad, but i do like the darker hair better! you always look cute though! take care! oh and ps my skin is out of control right now too! whats up with that?! grrr

    ReplyDelete
  48. the light hair looks alright, but i would still say dark brown looks better on you. your hair (and actually your entire look! - esp your gorgeous eyes) in the jan15 sultry green post is...*melts* hahaha you are so pretty in that picture! that look is one of my all-time favorites on you! =D you should definitely consider going back to dark brown =)

    ReplyDelete
  49. hey girl. i like your hair a LOT better light. just fits you better overall and goes well with your features. niiiice!

    ReplyDelete
  50. i love the hair (: definately something different & it enhances your asian-ness more. haha <3

    ReplyDelete
  51. I think change is good! I prefer the darker shade on you though, but the new color is good with spring/summer (slowly) coming.

    I actually decided to dye my hair black recently, and it's looking too dark in my opinion. I haven't had my hair dark since I was in grade seven or so! So it's a change I have to get used to. I'm still deciding if I like it or not either.

    And I looove the neutral look on you! I'm glad you're enjoying the single life! :)

    ReplyDelete
  52. Hm... I'm not really feeling it. You know what might be a terrific color, but also a nice change? Ashlee Simpleton's new dark burgundy hair. It's a red without being so RED. Because it's so dark her long hair looks luxurious. I so want that color...

    ReplyDelete
  53. think the new hair is cute! it's definitely different. then again, i'm the kind of person who welcomes every change they make, so maybe i'm biased. it probably will darken though with time as the dye fades. as a comparison, i think the darker shade suited you more but it's always good to have a change every while :)

    ReplyDelete
  54. Your hair looks awesome Stephie! You look a lot younger/more fresh and awake/alive with the lighter hair. Its great!

    ReplyDelete
  55. i think i prefer u overall wit darker hair- the highlights looked good on u. buuut, u stil look good! :) thanks for updating on th N collection.

    ReplyDelete
  56. It's stunning! Not many people can pull that off, in my opinion, yet you do it amazingly. In summer I dyed my hair for the first time and it was that colour, I really liked it but I changed my mind after a few months. hehe.

    ReplyDelete
  57. I love it, but it sort of washes out your face (well, in the picture).

    ReplyDelete
  58. Hey Stephie! I actually like your new hair color! It's something different for the New Year and it's nice to change things up a little. And when you said that the flash makes your hair look really light, it actually reminded me of a picture that my friend took of me getting ready for homecoming in like, 9th grade and the flash made my hair look super reddish haha, I have to show it to you: http://public.fotki.com/alicemarys/dwhs/the20female20proces.html

    Anyway, love the picture with the bag over your head, lol! Have a great week

    ReplyDelete
  59. Glad to hear that you're enjoying the new single life Stephie! To no one's surprise you look great in both hair colors. I'd have to say that I prefer the darker original color though only because it does make your features stand out more. Maybe going dark again with a lot of fine highlights to add dimension? Or if you don't want to dye your hair again add some gorgeous lowlights to the color now and it will look really glamorous too! Either way you always look perfect =)

    ReplyDelete
  60. ah.. it turned ginger looking.... your friend my my should have put your hair in foil, it evenly distributes the heat, and evens the colour. as the top part of your head gives out heat first.

    but my preference, is if you dye the roots a bit darker and it will look better.

    for skin breakouts i find using Dr.Hauschka Lavender Bath as your cleansing water in conjunction with the clinique 3 step really works.

    It helps reduces the redness in your skin. and using the dr hauschka oily skin kit once a week.. doing a 1 hour facials helps too.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Hi! Honestly, it's not my favourite of your looks. I actually work at a beauty supply store that specializes in Matrix. Matrix colours (So Color)are lift and deposit colours. A level 8 would be too light to lift your hair enough to get a nice golden brown. That's why it turned orange. If you want to cover it I would suggest using an ash again to counter act the orange and I would go with a level 6 this time. If you want to limit damage to your hair choose the Color Sync line. It's semi permanant. Good luck.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Hi Stephie!

    Glad to see you posting again. :-) I think you look good with both colors, but I prefer the darker hair on you.

    ReplyDelete
  63. I like it lighter but I think it's the wrong tone for your skin, I get the same problem.
    Your hair obviously give out a lot of warmth when died lighter so using a cooler shade usually helps but you used an ash based color so it should have worked out quite well.
    Get advice from a trained hairdresser there are toner you can put on your hair to take out the reddish tones.

    I've had people tell me that Aveda's blue and black malva conditioners can help but I've never used them myself so I can't say they work or not.

    Also if you find your breaking out you can get glycolic based toners that work a charm and keep you skin smooth and clear.

    ReplyDelete
  64. OMG! You have the same haircolor as I had before o____o but mine was like more orange =/ I didnt really like it and waited for like 1-2 months to see if the color will get darker but in the end it was still too light so i died it a darker brown =/
    Hmm I think that you look better with darker hair =/ but if you want to dye it again wait at least a few months so you dont damage it too much ^^'
    P.S. Sorry for my bad english x_x

    ReplyDelete
  65. Hey not bad! I do think the darker hair suits you more though. I've dyed my hair a similar colour before as well (I was trying to go light light brown) and the roots were super duper lighter then the rest and it didn't grow out at all. I dyed it back to dark brown a few days later and my hair was really damaged. If you plan to dye your hair again soon I would recommend waiting atleast two weeks. I would also hot oil your hair every other day (sounds like a lot but it'll help!). REALLY condition your hair like never before!
    You know, I think you would look really nice with BLUE BLACK hair. It would make you look dramatic and everything pop out. And what doesn't match with black?!
    Either way, you're very pretty and from your clips you seem like a really nice and sweet gyal!

  66. i think yu look better with yur old hair when it wass dark ;]

    ReplyDelete
  67. to be honest, i think it's a little too light and orangey... i agree with some people up there, maybe you need a blue-ish toner to get rid of the brassiness...???

    i think chicas with your skin tone looks way hotter with darker hair plus it's so light it almost looks a little too fakey...??

    you should try like a darker plum-ish color, it'll also bring out ur eyes. ur still cute and pretty but i like you with darker hair =D

    ReplyDelete
  68. oh i forgot to add... a darker color will look so striking cuz you have a lighter skintone. that's all. heh.

    ReplyDelete
  69. actually i own my own hair shop, and my opinion is i think the color looks real good on you! but you should def tone your roots down...by a professional. :) and highlights would look cute as well!

    ReplyDelete
  70. and oh yeah, your hair wont fade out darker, its just going to get lighter!!!

    ReplyDelete
  71. hey stephie!! its maria from abb.. bubblypenguin... i didnt know you had your own blog!! actually i didnt know a lot of the abbers had their own blog!! im so late!! lol..

    well.. if i tell you honestly dont be mad okay.. well the new color makes you look super pale!! and i think it makes your face rounder too.. like in a chunky round way.. and your eyes seemed to shrink.. sorry if its too critical.. but you're still gorgeous!! =]

    i had my hair light brown, like very very light brown, almost blonde but it wasnt bleached at all and now whenever i dye my hair black (the blackest shade) it'll turn back to that ugly light brown! and the worst part is that its not my whole head cuz when i dyed my hair light brown i purposely only dyed a blotch and a few strands here and there.. so imagine my hair with streak like strands after a week of dying my hair.. ahh.. i dyed my hair black like 4 times already and the color just loves me so it keeps coming back for my loving!! lol..

    ReplyDelete
  72. you should model, maybe not catwalk but printed materials...meant as a compliment

    ReplyDelete
  73. I don't know if it's the light of the camara or what but it looks a bit reddish. Also, it makes your skintone lighter. On my opinion...I would tone down the red, hence making it darker. Just an idea...

    ReplyDelete
  74. I think you look better with dark hair, because right now.. it looks kinda orange-y.. or maybe it's just the flash!

    ReplyDelete
  75. hey love!

    it looks alright! but it wouldve looked reeaaall good if you went to a salon! :) i really like the thought of light hair on you!

    the light hair makes you look sexy!

    while the dark hair makes you look sweet! :)

    so i say yes to the lighter hair! :D

    ReplyDelete
  76. Not to sound rude but your dark hair was MUCH more flattering. This just looks like a really cheap dye job from like the 90's when all Asians had orange hair because "dark/black hair was so not cool." Trust me, even if you're kinda liking this now, you'll look back a few months or years from now and see that it was a HUGE mistake to keep it. Please go back to your roots (or as close to it as possible). That goes to all Asian girls; dark hair is MUCH sexier and more importantly, classier.

    ReplyDelete
  77. That orange brassy color does not compliment your cool skin tone. If you want to go blonde you'd have to go for a cool blonde, such as Ash Blonde. Stay away from brassy tones. If not, i think you'd look great with jet black or very deep dark burgundy tone. That suits your cool skin tone a lot more. Maybe you can dye it darker and get bleached highlights?

    ReplyDelete
  78. hi, I like your blog and read it everyday. I'm a big fan of your makeup tutorials.
    By the way i like your new hair color. Last year I dyed my hair to this orangish color. But it was too difficult for me to dye it in every two weeks. Becasue it becomes trashy dark yellow after 4-5 washing. I hope your hair color will last.
    Check out my blog if you have time.It's Turkish, but i can translate posts.
    Take Care,

  79. Hey, Stephie.

    Those boots look HOT! Glad you had fun at the party :)

    Regarding your hair, I think you suit darker hair. However my sister reckons you should go light, LOL. She says you'll look so hot, haha!

    I love the look of blonde but I hate the thought of the regrowth etc. I'm too lazy to maintain it so I just have brown/black hair.

    ReplyDelete
  80. Oops. It was meant to say lightER hehe like blonde/white :D

    ReplyDelete
  81. hey yeah im sooo sad heath died. i was so shocked!
    neway i like the hair that colour but honestly darker hair suits you better cuz that shade is so 'asian' if u get me? im asian too n when i dyed my hair that oh-so-similar colour everyone said i look like a typical orange-haired asian (whatever that meant lol) and maybe cuz half the asian population in london has that hair so unless you dont show any dark roots then i guess it could work for you. (hope you didnt take this as being rude, cuz it wasnt meant to sound like that)

    ReplyDelete
  82. The new hair color is something I have to get use to! It's def. a big change and I want a ashy brown tooo but yours came out too light! lols Do you think you can post one without flash ?! flash and non flash makes a big difference! You can always try the japanese Dye, Palty. I love and it's made for Asian hairs!

  84. The new color is definitely NICE. It's up to your preference whether you want to have dark hair or light hair; but since you're starting a new year, I'd say keep it!

    The only reason why it looks so funny is because you just dyed it! You'll need to wash it off for a few weeks, and that nice gorgeous color of yours will town down and you'll look super stunning.

    (If your root color remains the same or different color than your ends, I'd say you'll probably have to fix it)

  85. thanks everyone for your input!

    to clarify, i didn't mean to go blonde or brassy at all. my original intention was to go light brown, so i thought a light color would turn out darker, which it didn't. i didn't dye my hair because i didn't like my dark hair, i thought it was time to try something new.

    i'll be keeping this hair for a bit, i do think the next time i dye my hair will be one of the last times in a while, just because its extremely unhealthy to dye it often.... perhaps i'll dye it medium or dark brown or blue black to neutralize the red/brass tones in my hair.

    p.s. i don't want to go blonde ever, it just isn't me... although this color came close but that wasn't my intent :P

  86. I love your old hair color better. You looked really pretty with your old hair shades. I like this new look too but I love the old one more!

  87. i personally like the change. you are so young, you should experiment with colors and different hair cuts. i wish i did. im dying my hair as im typing this comment, lol, what a coincident! but i got a bronze brown, just a tad ligher than my natural hair color. girlfriend, i aint dying it for fun. I GOT GRAYS!!! so yea, this is just to mask the evidence of massive stress at work.

    the lighter hair color washes you out a bit, but i think its cus we are not used to it. plus it will get darker in a week. this gives you more excuse to wear more vibrant color on your face!

  89. Hey Stephie, I like your new hair. It's definitely a change from your old hair color. I think dyeing it a bit more brown will also be good. It's great experimenting with hair colors! I've gone from platinum blond to jet black myself, and it's so much fun! Hope you have a great time with your new hair style. ;)

  90. I like your old hair color better, but you still look pretty with your new hair :)

  91. i think the darker shade brought out your features more. but this one is pretty too. (:

  92. to be honest.. your old color really made your hair rich and healthy looking, especially in your mod look pic; whereas this blonde color kinda makes your hair straw-looking. i agree that it washes your skin out alot. i mean if you loved that new color, you wouldn't need our opinions.. =) so you may know already that it looks a bit off. can't wait to see more videos of new makeups ideas! =)

  93. i love it i think it suits you :) I bet u feel a bit washed out but u dont look it. It always happens when u go lighter it just takes a lil getting used to. You look wonderful! My roots get that light too all the time because of the heat of my head my stylist is constantly having to put a darker color in at the roots for a bit to tone it down but i couldn't tell u how to do it lol. Anyways. Enjoy it its wonderful. New life new hair :)

  94. Hi Stephie,
    I really love your websites and tutorial videos! (:

  95. i like the dark hair color more, but i think the new color is pretty cool too. i just think if you used a lighter eyeliner color, because the black you've been using (which looked great with the dark hair) seems a bit severe for the new shade!

    but you are still gorgeous as ever!

  96. I think you still look good with the new color, girl. I just have a preference to darker hair :)

    Hope school is going well for you sweetie! Take care.

  97. Def. a light brown would be nice i think you should see if the color washes out to a darker shades. i agree with you on saying that your roots came to be a little extra light. :) good luck with the hair.

  98. it's way TOO brassy now and doesn't match you well, i think you would look better with black hair

  99. I really loved the darker hair color on you (what product did you use for your previous color?), but you're still super pretty!

  101. Have you ever tried henna? It would be great on your hair, look natural, healthy, and still give you a nice red.
