Thinking about going Blonde? Think Twice!
Have you been turning your head every time you see a blonde with long straight hair walk by you? In fact, now as you lay upon your bed at night; you’re starting to have thoughts of going blonde yourself. Hey, slow down and let’s think about whether this would be a good choice for you.
Admittedly, if you are thinking about lightening your hair; you are definitely positioning yourself up for a change in your life. Boredom coming from the reflection of the mirror can easily bring some dissatisfaction and discouragement. Ask yourself, what is the significance for thinking this way?
Here are a couple questions to ask yourself before you dive into the kingdom of blondes:
• What true color is my hair now, and is it complimenting me or taking away from my looks?
• What is the real reason, I have become so dissatisfied with my color?
• Would blonde go with the color of my eyes and my skin?
• Do I want a natural looking blonde?
• Am I seeking to cover my natural color because I feel my gray is unbecoming?
Whatever the reason, it is a good idea to ask yourself some balanced questions. What does a good friend of yours say about your idea? Usually, they are our best critics and see you differently than you do yourself.
Blonde is not for everyone. It is amazing when I see someone who has been a blonde for years suddenly appear with a warm golden brown. The improved difference is quite striking; I have always wondered why they didn’t do that in the first place. But, there is an old saying “once a blonde, always a blonde,” and don’t you believe it for a second.
There are several reasons why some stay as blondes, and one is because of seeing themselves with the blonde color has become a habit. They tell me jokingly, “I don’t even know my natural color anymore.” That just happens to be the truth too. Blinded by this habit, they do not realize just how much prettier they would look if their hair matched their brows and eyes. What a difference that makes.
Many of the movie stars get away with dark eyes and blonde hair because of the entertaining they do that requires heavy make-up. This doesn’t make them more beautiful, classy or elegant than you, just more in the public eye. What kind of look are you searching for? Should you decide on a blonde, would it match the color of your eyes? Would it flow? Or, would it wash you out? Would you require more make-up than you are used to using, and if so; are you ready for this ritual every time you venture out?
If you have brown eyes there would definitely be the contrast with the blonde hair. There could be attractiveness with that difference; with a goodly amount of make-up. Brown eyes could look good with blonde if it has the right tones. If it is too pale yellowish, you will look just like everyone else. Depending on your skin tone a strawberry blonde or a neutral blonde could be your answer.
Either way, you will have to get used to wearing a little bit more make-up. Even with gray eyes, you need make-up. Frankly, I haven’t seen anyone who doesn’t need the improvement of some make-up on their face. Gray eyes need color and if you put a bland pale blonde next to them, it could wash you out. Everyone knows that blue and green eyes go hand in hand with the color of blonde.
If you are truly headstrong about going blonde, the best idea for you is to select a natural hair color. Take a visual survey as you go about doing your errands and at work today. Look at all those same color blondes. With a professional eye I can tell you, it is almost like wearing a uniform and joining the same union. Everyone looks the same.
Many women have their color so extremely lightened there isn’t any color left in their hair shaft. Unfortunately, the majority have very dry and usually unhealthy. Something tells me you do not want to go in that direction.
