hair color?

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?

Bronze was your first instinct, stick with that
Mmm, auburn is pretty
Dark brown would go with everything, and maybe your stylist can fit highlights in
Blondes have more fun
I don't think you've given enough consideration to blue
Hairy ticky
