Which way do you guys like my hair best, naturally wavy, or straight? I want it to grow, and it's not having any of it. -.-

Also, colourwise. Do you think dark brown would suit me? I'm quite pale, so I'm not sure! My mum says no. :/

thanks everybody x

Hi,
I just noticed your message.

I use paintshop pro to edit people's photos on the dance forums now and again.

By chance you said you wanted to know what your hair looked like dark brown... So I thought I'd see what paintshop pro could do and I've attached the results... Hope you don't mind. It's very rough, but you get an impression.

From that photo I'd say it doesn't look too bad, except your eyebrows will be much lighter. It's hard to tell if the brown would be too intense from such a closeup picture.

To answer your question about straight or wavy, I don't think either is better or worse, just different. Wavy makes you look younger and more natural, straight makes you look a bit older and more sophisticated.

I personally like it better wavy and darker. I don't know if I like it as dark as ^, but what's the worst that could happen? You do it, hate it, and get some highlights? It's only hair, it all grows back.

I think the shade of blonde quite washes out your face though, I like it better with a little color to it.

Just because you're pale doesn't mean you need to be extreme blonde! Far from it! I'm quite pale with blue eyes and my hair is just a shade away from black right now (my natural color is a light brown.) I like it a lot and my hubby loooooves it. You don't need to go anywhere near black though. A dark brown, like you suggested, would work nicely for you I think.

I don't have much of an opinion on the colour, but I definetly prefer the look of the natural/wavy hair to the straightened look.

LOVE the natural wavy look on you!

Also, I am very VERY pale. So pale that I have found literally one make up brand with a shade light enough for me. Even the lightest of bare minerals is too dark for me. I know have extremely dark brown hair. In certain light it looks almost black. I have gotten more compliments on my dark hair then I ever did on my natural blond hair. I personally think you can totally pull it off.

Definitely like the wavy/natural more on you. Also if you're trying to grow it out, the healthier you keep it the better it will grow, so less heat styling will also help keep it healthy!

Thanks guys! Natural look it is then! It will help it grow if I don't use much heat on it, so I'll stick with that for a while!

As for the brown, the edited photo would be way too dark for me. I'm growing my colour out, and my hair is a light brown colour, so we'll see what that is like, then we can always go darker!

thanks a bunch!

My hair looks mega dark here! It looks okay though, well, I think so! So, I think I'll dye it!
