So I Dyed My Hair

...and I hate it. It didn't turn green, orange, or disastrous but it's so freakin drab/boring looking. I wanted a auburn/reddish brown. I remembered that every time I've used a reddish hair dye the red came out way too intense and took like two weeks to fade to the color I wanted, but I still picked up a dye that looked pretty noticeably red because I wanted something fun and new. Now I have drab shit brown hair with red that only shows up in certain lighting. My mom and boyfriend told me not to dye it, but I'm obviously a dumbass. My mom actually ended up saying she likes it a lot and I should stick to this for a while. I have a feeling when my bf sees it, "What the fuck did you do to your hair" will be the first thing out of his mouth.

So I went from this color that I liked but was starting to get bored of...

To this blahness that gives me an oh so lovely Plain Jane look

The red shows up in the sunlight...but I don't spend my days sitting in the sun to show off my hair color's full potential. My heels completely sunk into the grass which is why the pants look too long

I have a little haul from yesterday that I'll post either later or tomorrow. I haven't taken pics yet. I finally found a pair of black pants in a size 3 long. I can easily find jeans in long lengths(but I wear skinnies 99% of the time so I can wear regular length ones), but everytime I find black pants they only come in one length. Since my shoes are rarely under 4 inches my pants need to be pretty long.

I needed to post just so I could complain. I know it's not drastic but I still don't like it :(. Can you recommend any red/auburn hair glaze type thing that'll boost the red? I don't want to be too rough on my hair by redying it especially since I want to grow it out.

  2. I think it looks nice, I find the colouring in Clairols dyes crap tho, I bought medium brown and left it on for 15 minutes, which is recommeded, and it turned out like jet black! xxx

  4. I actually think it looks nice and ready for fall to come at any moment now :D You totally remind of jessica alba! But if that seems super drastic change for you, maybe you should go to a salon and put some highlights in it? I still think it looks pretty good :) And how tall are you? I feel like a shorty even though I'm pretty tall compared to people over here! I can wear regular length pants and have to roll it up when I wear flats or they look normal when I wear heels :D

  5. I like this hair color. It really suits you and doesn't look like 'plain jane' at all. I would kill for a gorgeous chocolate brown hair color although everyone seems to like my strawberry blonde.

  8. lol. Awww, I must say I adore you with darker hair.

    I'm never permenantly dying my hair again!
    The color didn't show up how I want at all. That was months ago, but some of it is still left in my hair.

    Try L'Oreal? Or go google some brands and see what people say.

  10. Wow. I went darker with my hair too! NOT SURE if I like my hair dark but other ppl said my features "pop" more. I think your features definitely pop more with your new hair color. And who knows? You can always add a few blonde highlights to break the color. :) Remember, girl, it's just hair. Let's have fun with it!

  18. I honestly think it's VERY pretty. The color does something for your eyes. I can't explain it, but you carry it very well. Just give it time; it'll probably grow on you soon enough.

  20. To be honest, you really could not look bad in any color. Your face is so pretty you can pull off ANY color. This looks gorgeous on you. If your not happy with it, at least you know you can always change it again, enjoy it while you have it because it does look nice on you! Change is nice once in a while :)

  35. I don't know Tiff, it is a nice colour, it's just that there's not much range or variance of colour. If you add highlights in, then it would suit you better. But do whatever looks and feels good to you!
