Honestly, would this be a mistake? *PICS* UPDATE

I got some hair dye in a color I used as a teenager. I love it, but I'm a little afraid I'll look ridiculous. So lay it on me ladies, is it a bad idea? And yes, I know that's a terrible pic of me lol.

Update: I exchanged it for a rich auburn. Not sure if that will look good either, but it won't be quite at shocking, and it was the only other one I really liked.

I'm super bad at figuring this stuff out. That color would look awful on me, though. :(

That's a funky orange that I would never use. A deep red/burgundy would work though.

I think it would wash you out. What about a deep red?

I suck at it too lol. I can tell on other people, but not myself.

Yes, grown adults who have weird hair color look so pathetic. Like they can't just grow up already.

Yes. But I think anyone dying their own hair is risky.

I don't know, we have similar coloring and I couldn't do it. Maybe a deeper red or a burgundy?

Go darker red if you are going to go that route.

You are too white for that color, you could maybe do highlights thigh, you would have to strip your hair, then do that color to get it that shade. Do you have experience doing it at home?
