I see red, I see red, I see red!




(pictures by Nappkin)


Today I am going to let you in on a little secret... I'm 23 years old and going grey! Not something I am particularly proud of or stoked on. I don't have a full head of grey or anything like that- just many flecks throughout my fringe and the underneaths :( So as you can imagine I colour my hair all the time to keep this fact as well hidden as possible (but i guess the secret is out now) so when I look at these pictures all I can think is- I need to colour my hair red!!

Although I don't know if I could pull it off but wow does she look striking. What do you guys think? Dark brown hair is getting a little boring. I've never ever considered red until I saw these pictures but they really have won me over.

  7. I went red once, on accident. Everyone except me loved it. I think you could pull it off ;) But be warned, people expect more out of you when you're a "redhead"

  12. my hair ain't this blonde, i have highlights done, but once i dared to wear red hair and I really loved it! the problem was that the color wouldn't last much because my hair was too blonde and it didn't let the color to last much,,, but i really loved the result. in fact it wasn't red, it was more orange, just as the ones you have shared.. mayeb you should give it a gor and if you don't like it go back to brown again :)

  16. For some reason I always want to go red too. Let us know how it goes if you do!

  17. Maybe you could try brown-red first! It looks somehow between red and mium/light brown! I'm saying that because my hair is naturally dark brown and I didn't want to look weird because I didn't know if it would suit my skin so I tried something with a little brown in it and it looks great!!

  18. wow, go for it, it will be lovely, i am sure :)

  19. I would say go for red, it gets a lot of bad stick but personally I think it's stunning!

  22. I've never dyed my hair before. NEVER. I've always had strawberry blonde hair, but recently, I've been wishing so badly that my hair was a pretty copper. I wanted to dye it but I was afraid that i would never get this unique natural color back if I started dying it. Well, I opted for a new hairstyle instead, which forced me to part my hair differently and lo' and behold, my hair is red underneath the blonde! Problem solved!

  24. You should definitely go for it!!

  25. I think you have to have a ver beautiful face and tons of confidence and also the right hair cut to have red hair. If you have all 3 things, you should totaly go for it! What a way to start this fall!

  26. first of all, i think it's totally cool that you are going gray. i can't wait to have a long head of beautiful silver hair.
    otherwise, i totally understand your desire to color your hair. every once and a while i just have to do something drastic to my body... like get tattooed, or get dreads, or bangs, or dye my hair hot pink or teal. i just can't stay the same so i say go for it!

  27. These are indeed gorgeous photos! And yes, if you need any hair color other than your own (and your own is not in the red familly) go red!

    (keep calm and save the redheads :D http://29.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_l6qtchMNyr1qzd31no1_500.jpg)

  28. I must say, red is quite "a la mode"!
    Go for it! ♥
    or you can dye your hair with some henna, it gives great effects! :p

  29. I'm not going to lie, you have to be able to handle the attention you get with red hair. It's not for the faint of heart that's for sure. I've been a redhead since birth and I love it, but I've grown up with it so I'm use to all the questions that can be asked and the names I am called.
    I honestly think a bit of gray in hair is awesome and gorgeous. I might be one of few that feels this way but I think it makes people look refined.

    Red hair is an adventure!

  30. Sorry to hear about the fringe situation, myself as a natural gal will be in strife when this happens to me! This little red head on Lookbook has a wild mane of beautiful red hair you could get some inspiration from... http://lookbook.nu/user/31622-Delightfully-Tacky

  31. I'm 23 with grey hairs, too. If I'm not dying over them, I pluck them out weekly! I went auburn to cover them. :)
