So I asked for Carmel brown and it looks almost auburn in the sun. In the bathroom the light makes it look almost orange. I'm kinda having a hard time adjusting to it. I actually like the color, but was wondering what you thought of it?? Sorry for the squinty sun face, just trying to show you what it looks like in the sun.

I like it.  The results of the color are greatly affected by your base color, so if you have a lot of red in your hair to begin with the caramel color may come out with more of a reddish tint to it.

Dark browns ordinarily have a lot of red underneath it, so they may have had to keep toner on longer but otherwise, I like the way it looks.

Thank you! I've always thought auburn/Carmel looked great on other people....it brings out my hazel eyes. I'm just not the type to do drastic things to my hair...lol

Very true. DH comes home in 10 days from overseas so we'll see if he likes it :)
