Do next week I'm going in to get my hair trimmed , long layers , my hair is naturally very thin & wavy , I'm Mexican so I have a nice tan going on . My hair right now is a dark auburn ( me in the left picture ) I want to do something very different , I really like the hair color on the right picture , do you think it would look good on me ???

I dont want to go in there and come out looking like a clown lOl .

I don't think blonde would work well with you. I think you'd look great with like a dark red color.

Love it! And the maintenance would be as costly, nor would you need to do it ever month or so. And you wouldn't need to lighten your eyebrows! Which you would need to do of you go full on blonde.

Caramel highlights on brown hair look great, not sure about on auburn though.

 Blond will be high maintenance.You will have to touch up the roots at least once a month.I think your hair is pretty as is but if you want something different I would go with highlights.

That looks more doable :)

Quoting _abeauty92: Yikes ! I see what you are saying , the first time I bleach my hair for highlights they were copper-ish lOl what do you think about the 2nd picture I posted?



Quoting ProudMommy51006: Just because your hair is so dark, I worry with one treatment it may look more orange.





Quoting _abeauty92: Can I know why ?







Quoting ProudMommy51006: I don't think it's a good idea

You don't look tan at all. You look as pale as my western european descent butt. lol I don't really think hispanics look good with blonde hair usually.

I agree with this. 

It is very hard to get the blond you want when you have dark hair. I had to bleach multiple times and still didn't get it quite right. I went red after that.

Maybe if you have it professionally done it won't be so hard??? Not sure because I always dye my own hair.

yes, I think you would look good with blonde hair.

However, just to warn you it might take a few sessions to get your hair to that color. When I was dark haird and wanted to go blonde they told me I would have to bleach all my hair and then come back so they could add color to it. I didn't want to walk around with bleach blonde hair so I opted for highlights instead.

As a hairstylist, I wouldn't recommend it. Your hair looks very thin and fragile, bleaching would damage it
