    Hey guys and dolls!
    I have been thinking seriously about dyeing my hair closer back to my real color again.Call it seasonal,or boredom...whatever.
    I used an online virtual makeover to see how I would look and I'd like your thoughts! (excuse the little bit of blonde hair you can see poking thorough in the make over pic,for some reason I could not center the pic right)

    Ultimately I will do what I want (because I always do,lol) but I'm curious what people think looks better.
    I do feel like I get more attention as a blonde,but it's not always attention I want,and I personally am not feeling the look on me so much anymore.

    (P.s. Please try to be nice,I did not ask if you thought I was attractive,I'm just asking which hair color looks better)

    I think it looks great. And you look great. I don't have any preference for blonde hair myself, so I say get back to normal (as in that silly commercial:))

    Thanks Trond! :) I'm definitely leaning that way.
    My BF prefers darker hair,but says he doesn't mind me blonde either.
    Most friends and family like it blonde though-but too bad for them,lol

    I like the darker better. It brings out your eyes just a tad more.

    I'm tossing my vote in for brunette. Though, if I may pick an alternative, how about dark red?

    It's going to be a brownish red.I like red but it fades too fast and the whole point is getting closer to my natural color.

    I'm going to go ahead and do it :)
    Going out in a bit to get the dye.
    Thanks for your opinions guys!

    Looks like I'm a bit late but my vote would be the darker as well.

    blonde makes you look younger as in cutesie and brunette makes you look older as in mature/experienced. Thats my opinion.
    You dont know how funny this is cuz just earlier i was thinking about a thread of curly vs straight hair. Lol.
    And btw, you are gorgeous!!!

    Blonde is sweet and sexy, brunette more classy & sophisticated.
    So my choice is definitively blonde......or brunette......or........or?
    No matter you are hot whichever!

    Well... It's a little easy to be distracted by the differences between the pics other than the hair color. The first one is the fact that your blonde before pic is cropped in the brunette pic such that only in the blonde pic can your cleavage be seen, and that's the first place a guy's eye gets drawn.

    With that said, it's also a little hard to judge the hair color by itself because the style is different (which maybe it should be a different style so you have the best blonde style vs best brunette style) And there's more eye makeup on the brunette pic.

    I would be hard pressed to say that the differences I observe are due to color, hair style or makeup. Here's my observations. In the brunette pic, your nose and eyes look bigger(probably the makeup), your forehead looks smaller ( probably the hairstyle)

    I would also say the blonde pic looks more approachable, the brunette look looks intimidating.

    I prefer whatever your natural color is. Of the two colors overall, I prefer blonde, but it has to be natural blonde, don't like bottle blondes...and when it grows out, women look trashy. Highlights are one thing, but a complete change...I don't care for them.

    Yeah I had to crop the one pic so they would be the same size,but you are right,the cleavage in the one pic adds an unfair advantage:p

    Also,the virtual make over site allows you to change make up,so I did make the make up in the brunette pic a bit more dramatic.
    As a blonde I always have to wear softer colors so I was interested to see what I'd look like with darker ones.

    Thanks again for being constructive but not harsh everyone!
    I have the dye in my hair as I write this!

    If any of you ladies are curious about changing you should try the site it is fun to play around with:

    I think you could go either way which is lucky for you! I am naturally dark blond, and I would look really weird with dark hair because of my skin tone.
