I have an appointment tomorrow to cut and color my hair. I'm very excited, a haircut is overdue. But I'm a little nervous about the color, because I'm not sure what I want.
I decided it was time to color my hair again as part of me needing a style. So I started thinking I wanted my hair to be copper to fit in with the steampunk idea. Then I became concerned that it would clash with my complexion. I started thinking about auburn - but then realized that anything in the red family of hair colors would mean more careful selection of what colors I wear (the one advantage of mousy brown is it matches everything). I switched to going a dark chocolate brown, but that's not so exciting. Maybe with chunky blonde highlights, but the appointment isn't scheduled for two color things. Then I thought about the fact that every time I've ever given a stylist the option to color my hair anything they've made me blonde, so maybe I should do that. But I've been blonde, what I've always wanted to be was red. And thus the snake swallows its own tail.
Then I thought "Wait, I have the internets. I know many stylish people on LJ, or at least, they all have an opinion. Why not ask them?" So that's what I'm doing.
Here is a very blurry picture of me from yesterday so you can see my current hair color, taken with natural light.
Please tell me internets - what should I do?
What color should I get my hair dyed tomorrow?
