I got another reader e-mail the other day from S, that asked about hair coloring that could help others wondering the same thing:
Q: I really love the Hollywood trend of dark black hair, like sex symbols Megan Fox and Angelina Jolie, and I would love to dye my hair black. But I am scared – should I dye my hair black? I have quite pale skin, but I really want black hair to suit me!
I do agree that there seems to be a dark hair trend, but if you look closely, these ladies do not have jet black hair – instead, it is a very deep dark brown. I suspect it might have to do with the fact that black is a very permanent color (and you know how those Hollywood ladies change their look a lot!)
For Stef, and another one else considering to dye their hair, there are a few things to consider:
- Black does not fade – EVER.
- You can’t color over it if you change your mind.
- Since you can’t do anything about the color, there will be a long growing out process before you can do anything about the color again.
So think long and hard if you are tempted to get jet black hair. Also, black hair is quite a contrast on fair skin and can wash some people out, which I believe was a concern for Stef, but I have also seen it being done beautifully.
My advice will be dying your hair the darkest brown, like Brown Black from Revlon; it will look black enough, trust me. It is really up to you though, but remember those warnings!
Any dark-haired girls that can help Stef and others who want to go dark out?
