Should I Change My Hair Color?!

Hey everyone! First off, sorry for not blogging more! I am officially the worlds worst blogger because of my lack of updates. Go ahead, shun me now! Anyways, I was just on twitter and wrote:


"so i'm having a crazy moment right now and really want to change my hair color! not too drastic... just a little lighter with a red hue."
"do you think i'm out of my mind? cause i kinda do.. but i still wanna do it! maybe i should sleep on it? LOL"

This sparked over 100 @replies in seconds and I decided you all are the best people for me to talk to about this! In the end.. it's just hair. I can always change it if I don't like it. I only live once and have always been kind of fascinated by the thought of changing my hair color. I've had really dark brown (almost black) hair before, and I've gone a little lighter than my natural color as well. I've never had the urge to go blonde, tho. Maybe it's cause Elle is such a gorgeous blonde and I'm scared I would look like a mousy blonde (I also like being a little different from her) or maybe it's cause I just don't think my face could handle blonde. Either way, I don't really want to test it out.

I've toyed with the thought of red hair since I was 7 and got a barbie doll with dark brown hair, but it had a slight red hue in it. Seeing as I had dark brown hair, I took it as a sign that I needed some red in mine. My mom, however, didn't take it as a sign and said no. I haven't really thought about it since then.

Today I was lying around looking at pictures from last nights AMA's and (again) fell in love with Miley Cyrus's hair. Now her color from last night is not what I'm looking to do to my own head, but I was so intrigued by the way she's always changing her hair. Almost as if it's another accessory. I love it and wish I had the guts to do that! Well, I think I might have worked up some guts, cause here's what I'm thinking....

1) I'm getting my extensions taken out soon (like, within this week or the next one) and I think I should give my hair a little break. I haven't had shorter hair in years, so I think I should try it out for a little while. Even if that little while is just until I go back to LA... LOL.

2) When I'm ready to get extensions put back in.. die my hair a dark brown with red hue (like the included picture of Miley) and rock it out :)

So whatdaya think - should I go for it?! (it's not like it's that different! LOL)

***I have to admit, I was a little skeptical of mentioning Miley as my inspiration. Most of you know I do support Miley and don't think it's my place to "hate on her" or anything like that. She's living her life, I'm living mine. However, I do know that if I just tweeted the picture and said "I want my hair like this!" I would get so many "you wanna be just like Miley" or "Ewww.. why do you like her?" comments. So I decided to write this in a blog post instead of twenty 140 character tweets and just let you all know that yeah, I am a Miley fan. But I don't want to change my hair to be like her. I happen to love the color and thought it would be an easy way to show you guys what color I'm talking about when I say "brown with a red hue."

do it Blair!!!! you'd look beautiful

Melanie said...

i just sent you an email about my experience with wanting to do this and a suggestion :)

Niki said...

You should definitely do it! Try, like, a red auburn colour. :)

Monique said...

You definitely should!!!! it'll look cute! follow me on twitter @MoniqueBajouka plzzzzzz

Emily said...

You can try Lush Caca Rouge Mama henna treatment. It's all natural and moisturizes your hair. It won't strip your hair like dye will and it's gives a gorgeous red sheen to your hair, especially in the light. I think it's a great idea to play with your color.

xx

hope you consider! hennaforhair.com is a great resource. I love doing research on beauty treatments.

I think you should, I mean, it IS only hair!

Since it's not too drastic, you can just dye it back in a heartbeat!

I've dyed my hair dark brown before and when I wanted to go back to blonde I had to visit the hairdressors about 3-4 times until it was light enough!

But with this colour it will be fine! Go for it!

:)

do you have a pink undertone in your skin? if you do, I say no but if you don't, go for it! I wouldn't make ur hair as light as Mileys though, a little darker brown maybe!

Anonymous said...

Blair, I think that would be SO cute. Will you please twitpic or make a video of you with no extensions when you take them out? I think all of your viewers would love to see you with shorter hair :) I think a darker (not too dark) with reddish would look so adorable on you. Love it! xo

Anonymous said...

i've always wanted to do the saame thing! i think it'd look so pretty [:

Anonymous said...

Blair i think it would look pretty but i love your dark brown hair. if you go to a website called picnik.com its basicly a fun photoshop website where you can add text and effects. if you click on the "touch-ups" tab and click on "highlights" you can color over your hair and change the color. when your done just screenshot the picture. i hope you try it out cause i think you would love it blair!

Melissa said...

I really like it, and think it would look great on you, but mabey you should go for a more suttle red hue! I adore you! :)

i hope you do videos letting us see your short hair! please!!!

ѕіовнаи ѕтеωаят said...

give it a try!! Like you said, you only live once. Who knows? You may love it and decide to never go back... :)

Yeah, I would def try a semi-permanent option first. They have no ammonia in them, so they won't ruin your hair, and I actually find my hair to be shinier, more manageable and overall healthier with the dye in.

It washes out after 28 washes, so it's a great option to try something, without taking a drastic step. If you don't like, you just have to wash your hair, instead of damaging it.

Plus, the Garnier brand carries a really pretty rich brown/mahogany color, that looks great on me and all my brunette friends.

Sabrina said...

I think you should go for it! I have had the same idea about the same type of red tint color being added to my dark brown hair but have always been scared to. Be my inspiration, rock that hairr :)!

YEAH! GO AUBURN! I would LOVE to have bronzy hair ;p

OMGHHKP DIE YOUR HAIR! IT WOULD BE SOOO PRETTY (:

Sweet Susy said...

go for it girl!
like u said if u dont like it u can always change it
=)
Good Luck

Jaesey Rae said...

Dooo it! I have naturally dark brown hair and starting last summer I've been dying it a slightly lighter brown with red undertones and I love it! I think that dark brown kind of gets boring after awhile and I wanted to change things up!

Courtney: for the record. said...

I say go for it! I've had long hair for almost 10 years and this past summer, one day I just woke up and decided that I am going to cut my hair today. And I did. To just below my chin. A major change, but all changes don't have to be major to make a giant impact. Hair should be fun. That's why they invented hair dye and extensions. They are the solution to those "what was I thinking?!?!" moments.

missDiorC said...

Definitely go for it!!! but try it without extensions i think you should rock your natural length!!! <3

Sight of a Solitary Raven said...

there is always the fear of putting red in and it looking brassy
especially since you are going from darker to a red than lighter
but whatever try it
if it doesnt work its always easier to go darker than lighter!

Rosa said...

The colour looks way hot!! You should do it, like you said its just hair. You can change it back if you don't like it- I think its hair dye stripping?, if you never do it then you never know :P

Katie said...

I love Miley Cyrus's current hair color. I'd say go for it!

Check out my beauty channel on YouTube if you get a chance! I just started making videos :)

i have ALWAYS been obsessed with miley's hair. even though it's all extensions, it's still gorgeous. you should def. try this color out. its perfect for fall/winter and you can always go back to your color now no problem. change is good! do this while you're young and have fun and experiment with hair colors/make up/ clothes/ etc..

Anonymous said...

I think your current hair is beautiful, but if you want to go a differesnt color then you should! You only live once. I think Miley Cyrus's hair looks gorgeous in the picture! Go for it Blair! Im sure it will look beautiful! :)

Carla said...

I think that you would look good in that color!! If you do yo would should do a video of the process!! Just a tip and you may know this but to keep the color from staining your skin take some vaseline around the edges of your hair and ears!! Happy Thanksgiving to you, your sisters, puppies, and family!!!

Fiore Jewelry said...

it's a beautiful color, and dying your hair can be fun. I'd say do it! ^-^

Raashi said...

Blair, I think you could definitely pull this color off (: Good luck making the final decision!

Elainea said...

You should DEFINITELY go for it! I've been fascinated with the idea of red hair for a really long time as well, and I admit, I love Miley's color here too. Do it!! :) Like you said, if you don't love it to death, you can always find something a little more fun.

taycout said...

I think u shud do it. it wud be awesome to see you with different hair and its always fun to change your hair. its always easy to just change it back, maybe try temporary? im gunna venture out and do mine like lauren conrad blond on bottom and darker shakes on higher layers

Caty said...

Honestly? I don't think the Miley color would be great on you at all. Subtler, sure, but that's far too red and I don't think it would suit your skin tone too well.

Remember that if you have cool undertones in your skin, you should stick to cool undertones in your hair. Warm undertones for skin, go with warm undertones for hair. If you have cool undertones and go for a warm color, it'll make you look ghostly. If you have warm undertones and go for a cool color, it'll make you look really pink all the time (I made that mistake once). But I agree with you when you say it's only hair. If it looks awful, you can always change back. No big deal.

So, I wouldn't go full out red. Maybe a really dark mahogany, but I would start out with lowlights with a red tone to them. Your hair is so dark that you can't really go for a lighter box dye without bleaching the first layer of your hair first anyway, so definitely do something subtle first, see how it looks, then do more if you like it. :)

Hoped this helped.

Emily said...

One more thing. I wouldn't listen to people on twitter that say your hair will turn red not brown with red hues, because henna doesn't lighten hair barely at all. It give a red sheen because it attaches to the keratin instead of stripping and depositing color. It is long and a little smelly but you could make a video or blog post out of it and show the viewers the process. You can add egg, olive oil, and red wine to give moisture and shine.

Definitely do your research, I did a treatment yesterday and it has turn out dark brown with reddish hues. I have the same natural color as you.

Just wanted to give you more info because people on twitter are @ replying you the wrong information. You can always go ask the people at Lush how to do it and get more info.

Good luck!

I think Miley always have a beautiful hair. I'm not a fan of her but I love her hair. I'm growing my hair long like hers. I don't think you need to be a fan of a celebrity to follow their hairstyle or use it as inspiration. :) whatever makes you happy and you think you can rock that hairstyle then go for it Blair!

kenzydav said...

Def do it..i think it would look gorgeous on u

Alex said...

Blair, I think dying your hair that color would be absolutely AMAZING! My natural hair color is about the same as your current color and I've been dying my hair brown with a reddish hue for about a year, and it looks great! I hope you enjoy the color as much as I do! =]

Anonymous said...

I think red would look good. You should add the photoshopped pics to the post so we can see what it would look like!

Also I hope keep the extensions out. I liked you better with your natural hair. Extensions just look too fake I think and plus you didn't even need them your hair was already long and looked great :)

Anonymous said...

DO IT! It'd look so pretty! You could definitely pull it off. Maybe add some chocolate brown low lights?

Anonymous said...

I think you should definitely go for it! my hair is this colour naturally, well its brownish in the winter and then it gets almost copper-like highlights from the sun in the summer :)
good luck!
oh and could you please show us your natural hair length and maybe do a hair tutorial for shorter hair?
xx

Brooke said...

Yes!!! do it :D it will look pretty on you. Oh and Blair I think you should look online because somone just sent me a message on youtube and it was a link to a website and it says horrible mean stuff about you :( I didn't read it all because it sounded made up and they tricked me into clicking the link because at first they pretended they were your fan and then I went to see the fan page they sent but it wasn't a nice page :(. You should tell them to take it off because it's a very bad page.

Laura said...

Hi Blair,

I completely think that you should go for it. I went through a bad relationship last year and when it ended I decided that I needed a change. My hair was naturally a mousey brown/blonde colour. It had been blonde when I was younger and grew into neither a blonde colour or a brown colour. So I decided to go for a really big change and dye my hair. Throughout this year, I have gone increasingly red and I absolutely love it. My hair is "sangria" by garnier fructis, which is kind of a reddish/auburn colour.

Just a piece of information that you should know is that red tends to fade out quicker than any other colour that you can dye your hair.

I wish you luck and if you choose an auburn, welcome to the gingers!

Once I saw the picture of Miley, I immediately knew that it would be a great experiment :) The hair color is gorgeous, & I know more than anything that you'll be sure to rock it out.

Monica (AtomicNony) said...

Go for it!
it's not a drastic change
besides it's hair and you can always change it back

Bellesme said...

So much to say!!
AAH! okay, well, I think red would look nice on you, and I would love to see your hair short!! =)
I would like to see you blonde, but that would be a little scary, but maybe a wig? Just to see... btw, Im turkish, and I have dark hair and eyes and I put on a Hannah montana wig.. and it was pretty fun =P
I totally agree with you, last night mileys AMA hair was gorgeous! recently its been stringy looked greasy an soo unhealthy (esp the green) but last night it looked so healhty, clean and SOFT! I wanted to touch it! <3 seriously I loved it!
I think its cool that she always changes it, but its also unhealthy. Now you reminded me of those pictures, I love that dress soo much, (like with a creme slip under =) but I remember her hair like that and it was gorgeous.
I saw on twitter that you are doing it and I can't wait!!! <3 I feel like my hair is too dark for red, but Im thinking, what other color can I do? I have light brown highlights right now

Kristen said...

I am naturally like a dirty blonde and wanted to color it to the light blonde I was as a little kid. I loved it for a long time but then starting to get really tired of the upkeep of the color (and the amount of $$ I was spending) so I decided to color it brunette with a red hue and I am LOVING it. The color itself is gorgeous and the upkeep is not bad at all. So with your naturally brunette color, upkeep shouldn't be bad for you at all and I think you would look beautiful :) so go for it!

Anonymous said...

You should do it! i have the same hair color, and eye color as you and i have done it before. i loved it! im actually considering doing it again! and as you said, if you end up not liking it just color it back to your hair color.

Brenna Fair said...

I think you would look wonderful with auburn hair. But if you want to go any other color, you should try that, too!

I have naturally dishwater blonde hair and I normally take it a couple steps lighter to brighten my face up. But I have had dark hair and red hair, too. RED - like Miranda from Sex and the City!

If you're unsure, you can always try a semi permanent color that washes out after awhile before you do the real thing!

Jessica said...

Even though I may not be a fan of her music, I have always thought Miley was very beautiful. I've always loved her hair, no matter what she does with it!

You would look amazing with a bit of a red hue, Blair,you should totally try it out. And like you said, its just hair, you can always change it back. I hope it turns out the way you want!

-Jessica

Val said...

I think you should go for it! It would be fun to change things up a bit. Just make sure not to go too light, generally light reds aren't flattering unless they're natural.
Wish I had the guts to dye my hair.. as it stands, the natural color is black and anything else would look awful on me! :)

glitter dreaming said...

do it blair! my hair used to be the same colour as yours and in a fit of experimentation I dyed it red. it ended up coming out as a brown colour with a reddish hue and I get so many compliments! i have a really similar natural hair colour to you, and my skin colouring is also really similar to yours. so i say, go for it!

Eek, don't do it!

It would be so pretty! Only problem with having red in hair dyes is that it fades faster than other hair dyes, at least from my experiences. Maybe if you did it a shade darker than you are expecting it to be and then let it light up over time? That way you can also get a better idea of which shade you will like the best for next time and it'll last a little longer. Just a suggestion.

Emily said...

yes it would look so nice with your skin tone! :)

Emma said...

go for it, the colour is really in at the moment, would look great on you and you can always dye it darker if you donh't like it xxx

I have always loved red heads, or fancyed them, if i may say:D you would look great with red-hint brown hair, for me, red wouldn't fit, unfortunately..:( :D go for it, not so hard to even cover, if you wouldn't than like it!

Katie said...

The problem with red is that it's not as easy to get out.I used to color it auburn a few years ago, when I started high school. Now, I can't get rid of it. Every time I color it 'brown', I can't shake the red hues. Because of that, I'm just growing it out. To me, it's not worth it.

Heidi said...

I think you would look great with a red tint to your hair. I do it all the time (though I went all red this time!). I have the same coloring as you- dark brown eyes and hair and light/medium skin, so it would look perfect on you!

I think it would be fun to change up your hair, though it's weird to try to imagine your looking different than you do now. I'm super interested to see what your hair looks like without extensions. How short is it?

I like to do new things with my hair to change it up too. I've never permanently died it, but I have cut it from about your length to a short bob. It's fun, and it always grows back.

Kristin said...

Go for it! Definitely start out with a subtle change (such as the Miley look) and don't go straight for Paramore red hair, haha. Just remember that reddish hair tends to fade the fastest, so a good sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner is definitely recommended. Can't wait to see how it looks!

Laura said...

you should do it! i have always loved miley's hair. but this one is definitely my favorite one: http://cutenotebook.blogspot.com/2010/11/who-cares-if-i-spend-40000-dollars-for.html

i just love it. and i'm gonna dye my hair like that. ummmm, sorry my bad english, i'm just not very good at it : D

Karina said...

Do it!

Here's my experience:

You're kind of the same type as I am: We almost have the same hair and skin colour - as far as i can judge from your videos ;)
2 or 3 years ago I died my hair a little bit darker brown with a hint of red in it, it was like a mahagoni brown. I loved it! You should go for it. It really looked good on me, so that I think it would fit to you as well.

Lots of Love :)

Blair, you are beutiful with brown hair, you are an idol to a lot of people becouse you are carasmatic, fun, organized,sweet and most of all i think you are beutiful just the way you are your thin, you have a great face most of all your hair is beutiful just the way it is long brown hair i think you shouldent change it your our inspiration!

Anonymous said...

Go for it! Im not a miley fan, but I do love her hair! Ive actually been thinking about going red, too. The only thing keeping me from doing it is all the maintenance red hair needs, since it fades the fastest. I want to try out a henna dye though, since it can just wash out.

I saaayyy GO FOR IT! ^^,
Like you said you only live once, at least you will try it, and don't like, you will know, and not live on the "what if world".

but please show us a picture with you having short hair before you get your extensions back in

Isis said...

I think you should!
I have the same color, also done with henna (but from Henné, but Lush will be perfect too I guess) And if you don't like it, just use normal shampoo for not-colored hair and it's washed out after 8-12 times. And don't forget, henna is healthy for nature and your hair, and you can do it easily yourself!

You should ombre your hair!, with that color. I have naturally dark brown hair and ombred a good portion with a redish-blonde hue. Everyone loveees it on me and its not as damaging for your hair.

I'm bad at imagining people with diffrent hair, but I think change is always good. Maybe go for a darker red then miley but I think you could use a change and I'm in need for a new hairstyle too!!!

Just do it ! You are going to be gorgeous as always !
And it's fun to have change, I love to change my hair color, it's a different me every time :)

Frederique said...

I think you should definitely go for it! It am sure it will look beautiful! I love changing my hair colour. My natural colour is brown but now I actually have(semi-permanent) brown with a hue/hint(?) of red, just like what you want, and I love it! I took a picture of miley with me to the hairsalon haha!
I hope you decide to do it! And I wanted to say that i love your videos! Your by far my favorite beauty guru

OMG! this is the exact picture I showed my salon when I went for a red tint in January! I really like it but it faded fast and left me looking a little gingery. Bahaha. Right now my hair is chocolate brown like Lucy Hale's but the red STILL shows through. If you do it, just make SURE that you trust your colorist and if you don't like it, be prepared to strip your haircolor and start over. In my experience with red, it takes FOREVER to completely go away! Hope this helps!!!! Good luck!!!!!

Dorothy said...

Blair, you should do it!
I did it too, my hair isn't as dark as yours but I'm in Love with my hair! It's a color that matches every skintone and I'm so sure you'd look great! So, if you want to do it, DO IT1 Don't care about bad comments, just do whatever you want! Nobody sould judge you just because you like Miley's haircolor! The only thing I can say: I loved what my hairdresser did with my hair when I showed him the Miley pic, so you'll be very pretty with this color too! Love your blogposts!

Go for a hair color similar to elle's :) you will look gorgeous!

Or If you go for red hue...go for streaks and not the entire hair! That would be fashionable!

Good luck....waiting to see your new look!

BLAIR! LOVEE IT! It's like a chestnut tone, which I think would look gorgeous on you. Also I think you should style your hair the way Miley has it in those picutures, it's super cute! OH and i'm loving the Herve Leger dress, I have a similar one although it's Betsey. I say you rock out this look for an event coming up, the hair, and dress, I just LOVE the whole look and I want it now haha. :)

Katia Vo said...

Hey Blair!
I'm so happy to see you back on your blog! xd.

I really think you should try the brown colour with a red hue. I'm sure it's going to look gorgeous on you!Anyway, don't be worry, we all think you always look amazing, no matter what you do with your hair, how your dressed... You're always, always soooo beautiful.

Yeah, I think it's time you try something new (:

Hey, by the way, how long is your hair naturally... I mean without the extensions? (I know you'll probably not answer my comment... xd.)

I will support you through whatever you do. I do think it will be an amazing look for YOU!
I am also a Miley fan fan so I am so happy I am not the only one who thinks she is great and doesn't deserve the hater comments.

O-Ana said...

Go for it girl!!! :)
The colour is beautiful !

My hair had kind of the same colour, a few months ago, but my natural hair is dark brown, like yours.

Mz Pretty Paris said...

I think the hair color would look great on you.And if you decide you don't like it you can always change it back.

Anonymous said...

Do it, I also really want to it, but my Mom won't let me, but maybe when I'm older! You'll look gorgeous any with hair color! Even green... maybe.

Steen said...

You should totally do it! As u said u can always change it back if u dont like it. If i wasnt so chicken and scared about loosing my beautiful natural blonde hair or have to worry about money to maintain it i would totally experiment with different colours. So for that reason i would love to see someone else able to do it instead. Go for it!!

Lucy said...

totally go for it... hair is an accessory you should totally change it up now and then... i suggest have it done professionally :)... and if you like to play around why not try on a hair color virtually online first :)

Blair, its a beautiful colour and all and I'm a Miley fan too however, I think your hair colour right now would suit you better AND I think its a bit too red-toned for you. Just my opinion. Love ya

Emily D said...

I am as big of a Miley fan as you probably are! She is just so confident with everything she does and wears! :) I think if you dyed your hair, you should still keep some dark brown tones or streaks in it. Also, please check out my blog! I would really appreciate it if you followed or commented on something! I am a huge fan of yours!

Charliesperanza said...

I think you should! It would look beautiful on you! Can't wait to see what it looks like! =]

xx

♥DanaParade said...

I think it'd look nice on you. I have this hair color right now and I'm naturally brunette and have the same skin tone as you. It would look fine, just go for it :) If worst comes to worst, you can always just dye it back darker ;) But of course with any red hue, it will eventually fade to a light brown so you just have to maintain it.

Ronie said...

I think that you should dye your hair. It is a gorgeous color and I think it would look really good on you. When I want to change my hair I always do it red. =)

Anonymous said...

Ohhh,I think it will suit you!!!!!

ButterFlyAway17 said...

i think you'll look absolutely beautiful in that kinda hair style...go for it!! =)

Mea said...

I think you should go for it! Miley's hair color is gorgeous, and I think it would look good on you aswell! :)

Tessa said...

I think you should do it, but then your own color with red in it, not a very big change like blonde or something

Toyin O. said...

Go for it!!!

Anonymous said...

Blair, I know this has nothing to do with this post, but is the Back TO Mac program still on? Just wondering. Happy Thanksgiving!

Emily said...

I think your hair is perfect for this color! I actually considered changing my hair to a color like this about last year, but like you said, I was a little too scared! But I totally think you should go for it! I love your hair! It's so long! I wanna grow my hair out long (it is about under-arm length) for my graduation this year!

Ashley said...

I think that shade would really suit you! It's not too much, but it's a change, and it's really pretty. I say go for it!

hannah :D said...

I had your hair colour or a little darker and i just like a few days ago got it dyed like kind of dark deep red so it looks red in the light kinda thing and i love it! i really think you should have a change. You can always go back to the way it is now :) xxx

Shannon Quinn said...

I used to have a redish hue to my brown hair, and everyone loved it. I got compliments on it allll the time, and I kind of miss it. I feel like I'm so used to your dark brown that I can't even imagine it, but you're going to look gorgeous no matter what! Have some fun, take risks. That's what being young is all about.

Brittany said...

Hi Blair, I know everyone is saying to dye your hair and you can always "dye it back", but take it from me.. RED NEVER LEAVES YOU. I got "red undertones" a few dyes ago (I'm also a brunette) and it never stays nice, always gets "brassy" very quick and then once you're over it (you will be) you have to keep dying it brown because the brassy red tones keep coming through!! I know brown hair can feel boring, but your natural hair is beautiful and you'll regret it if you dye it.

Anonymous said...

Do it! I have intense red hair and I LOVE IT! :D

Meghan said...

Hey Blair!

I definitely think that if you are truly considering dying your hair like that I think you should try a hair dye that is not permanent just so that you know FOR SURE you like that color because some of my friends dyed their hair and regrets it and CANNOT GET THE COLOR OUT. So just as an FYI try the color out first!(I know alot of people don't like non-permanent dye but it would really help with the decision-making process of dying your hair (BTW: I think natural haircolor is always the prettiest but you do what you want!)

@fusels said...

Why not blonde, blair?
I have photoshopped a photo of you so your hair looks blonde:

Haha a blonde version of Blair doesn't look like Elle at all!
But I still like your hair brown :)

Emma Louise said...

DO IT! DO IT! DO IT!

Anonymous said...

i think you should do it! i def. think the red hue would look GREAT on you- perfect for the holidays too! maybe consider chopping it short like olivia palermo did...!

Anonymous said...

You should definitely do it ;)

shir levi said...

you should do it! and if you dont like it in the end you can always change it again and i really like miley's hair!

Skittlez1096 said...

i think you should go for it. i think you wud be able to rock it and if not (if you are unsatisfied) u cud always die it back or try something else new xD

Nora said...

My natural hair color is the same as yours and a while ago i went to my stylist and asked for a color similar to mileys. Turns out the light coloring takes away protein from your hair making it brassy, dry, and frizzy. But going darker add protein to your hair making it healthier. But if your really going to do it, I suggest getting a Brazillian Keratin Treatment after getting it colored because it will add some more protein into your hair... Thats what I did and it worked wonders...

Becky said...

i think u should!!!! you would loook soooo pretty besides, its fun to change stuff around.

also, your not alone on being a fan of miley cyrus!! i luove her and always will!!!!

Hannah Blazen said...

I think u should add some red it would look super pretty :D

Kenzie said...

I've died my hair once or twice trying to get it a dirty blonde instead of my color right now, which looks almost exactly like yours! (in color not length!!) and I used the washout kind and it doesn't suddenly wash out it just fades but I recommend it! When I died it back it brought out a gorgeous natural red tone! I think u should have it a little darker shade than miley's hair though!!

dessy0099 said...

I think thats a prettygood idea but I also lke our hair color now Its not to light not to dark of a brown really like it but do what you want Blair -Destiny

Pins and Pom: The Daring Darlings said...

Awesome choice Blair!

Claireeatschocolate said...

I think that you should dye your hair a little bit darker. I think that it would be realllyyyy pretty against your skin tone. :) But yea, it's JUST hair, and it's YOUR hair. Do what you want with it, it will always be cute :)

Anonymous said...

Do it Blair! You could probably pull off anything! Have some short brown-red (auburn) hair! You'll look great!!:)

PinkAdele said...

As everyone else has said, I think you should go for it! Being a brunette is so versatile in that way and you can just dye it dark brown again if you don't like it!

You can try Lush Caca Rouge Mama henna treatment."

"CACA" means sh*t in spanish, I wouldn´t use any product with that name haha

AlexisBrodell said...

Blair, you should definitely try it out! My natural hair is dark brown, too, but I actually already have a little bit of a natural red tint to it. However, in October I died it more auburn than my natural color and I LOVE it! Plus I've gotten tons of compliments. And my skin tone is very similar to yours so I bet you'd rock it too!

Anonymous said...

You should definitely do it Blaiiiir! :) It seems like everyone else thinks so too. Lol. As for the short hair.. DO IT! but only if your able to get extensions again in case you dont like it.. I remember when I cut my hair short last year, I hated it and didnt have the option of getting extensions! but definitely try it:) its always good to change things up. plus, i think you'll look very mature with short hair :)

Emma Grace said...

I like the idea and I'm sure you could pull it off, Blair, but I think the way you look right now is really unique. You tend to have fairly pale skin, and that is brought out by the dark hair, also, I think it makes your eyes look darker. Like I said, you could definitely pull it off, and it might even make you look a little fresher and give you more ideas for makeup tutorials for lighter hair!!!

Anonymous said...

Blair! You would look so good with your hair that colour! Please experiement and try it out. I loved your attitude about it. "It's just hair, I can always change it back." I have deicided to try something new with my hair as well!! If i were you, i would totally go for it!

krista said...

why not? give it a try if you have thought about it for so long! Welcome to the club of fiery redheads!

Amy said...

Yes, I think that would look great! Though, over the past year or so I've seen you change your hair color quite a bit (or it just naturally changed by its self) and it looks good no matter what you do with it. So ya, I say go for it!

Carly said...

Yea you should do it!! Even if u end up not liking it u could just take it out & also r u going to do a blog or video about the forever21 makeup you got?? I'd really love to know how it all turned out!!

Martyna said...

HEY BLAIR. I think that it's a wonderful idea of trying new hairstyles and colours. We might as well try out new things while we're young. I think you should totally change your hair colour. I bet it'll suit you just fine. I like and totally support Miley Cyrus too!

OMG Blair you should totally do it would look great even though you always look great.

Jody said...

I have the same skin tone as you and my natural hair color is the same as yours. I added red hues to my hair in the past and it looked fantastic! I ended up adding more red later on because I liked the colour in my hair so much. I'd say go for it!

Anonymous said...

Yeahh you should die it tinned re like Cheryl cole I have been begging my mum to let me die mine it will look stunning! :]

Valentina Zedda said...

I love this color for hair..
and you would be fantastic to wear this!! ;)

Audrey said...

I think it would be okay, but then again I love your hair right now. I was blessed with natural red hair, and I know from other people it's hard to get perfect auburn hair.

Katie said...

I think that you could go for a lighter color, but not with the red hue, because in your videos, I personally don't think that it will look very good with your skin tone. You are so pretty and I think that it's a good idea to give your hair a break by taking out the extensions.

yes u will look really pretty !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Taylor Anne said...

I think you should go for it. It's just hair, you ca always change it back (:

I think your hair looks perfect the way it is! If you do, use a non-permanent hair dye first to see if you like it! ^_^

Daisy said...

Totally do it blair itll look awsome! I would love to dye my hair but couldnt decide if to go darker or lighter plus im so indecisive so i would completely change my mind once id done it! LOVE your blog and youtubes they changed my life xoxo

Em said...

I love that colour on miley, and i think it would look great on you, but i think it looks way better with your hair curled like miley. I think it would look good but maybe curl your hair more often if you do go for it!!

I love your hair but if your preferring to change it just like Miley Cyrus I think you will surely look awesome. Well natural cosmetics looks good in Miley's hair and I'm pretty sure that it will suit in you.
