Striking red

Feeling like I could pop a sequin dress and high heels on and head out somewhere, anywhere but work today.

I have had my hair cut into a bob and am wondering if I should dye it a striking red colour?

I've always wanted that Julianne Moore red hair- it wouldn't suit me but it's so beautiful- i would go mad shopping for clothes in every shade of green and blue

Becky said...

Do it! I always think hair is something you can be really creative with as any changes can be relatively easily reversed. Saying that, I have never dyed mine and only recently had it cut short after years with long hair...

Hi Jeska
I wonder how red? Are we talking pillar box red or a more natural autumn leaves auburn? I'm all for auburn myself!
Love the picture!
Happy days to you

Oooh I say do it. A red bob would be very cute! Or maybe just buy a red wig and wear that for the day??

Beautiful picture!

Having the same quandry, I think it is the approach of Autumn, red hair justs fit better with the landscape.

Oh my gosh! I've been toying with the same idea....going red! I told a hairstylist friend I wanted Will and Grace red. haha!

I'm sure your bob is glam and fun all in one! Can't wait to see if you go ahead with the red!!

I say go for it-- red is the best! Link above shows my REALLY red bob-- currently a bit darker, but still red.

Yippee for red! I've dyed my hair red in the past, and it is such a happy color. Now you're tempting me too :) I wish I could have a bob, but I did that once and my hair is so wavy that it just stuck straight out like a giant puffball! Not a pretty sight, unfortunately...

kiki said...

I really love your blog. :) and I think red hair is fun! I used to have dreadlocks and i really enjoyed those years. I think its alright to get bold once in your life.

i just went red and i love it! i'm super fair and i find that asking for a "coppery red" is really universally flattering. do it!!!!

I tried to leave a comment but I don't know if it worked...so here I go again.

I'm a natural redhead but every fall I love dying my hair just a shade or two darker to get to a richer, deeper red. So great with fall colors. "Cherry Cola" by Redken is an AMAZING red hair color!

Have fun with it!

How I envy you. I've always wanted red hair (plus freckles), but I don't have the complexion for it :((
