the before and after shot.

Before                                                               After

Ok, so its not that clear on my 'before' photo how bright my hair actually was, but if you look on my display picture its a berry red colour. Anyway, as I posted previously - I'd been contemplating for a while whether to dye my hair brown as the berry red was far too much hassle. With me previously being a platinum blonde, I found the red faded extremely quickly and looked a little tacky after a while. I really fancied the ombre look (brown hair fading into honey blonde) but in order for the shock factor to not be too much to handle I decided upon going brown and then adding the blonde once I've gotten used to this colour. So the 'after' shot shows the new colour of my hair. When I put the dye on I was instantly regretting it, thinking that with me being so pale that the colour would wash me out. However, once the process was complete, I was pleasantly suprised with the outcome. Although, I'm still not entirely sure what I think to it.

Comments/Opinions/Criticisms anyone, please? :-) xo
