Blonde To Brunette: A Transformation!

A Complete Change!

So this weekend I decided to go for a complete change, and dye my hair from blonde to brunette!

I’m naturally fair, but the blonde I’ve been isn’t my natural colour. It’s naturally a sort of dark blonde, and it’s kind of dull! I love dyeing my hair, and I’ve been quite a few different colours over the years.

When I was about 14, I started dyeing my hair black, and I stayed that way until I was about 19. I decided that I wanted to go back to blonde, and so I had it cut really short! I grew my hair back long, and it’s been blonde since then, to varying degrees.

However, I’ve been feeling a bit down lately, and I wanted a complete change. Sometimes it’s nice to have a transformation; it helps give me a boost!


This was what my hair looked like before:

I like the blonde, and it’s easy maintenance because it’s not too far from my natural colour! I’m quite pale too, and so it’s always a concern that the colour I choose will wash me out.

I have to choose a cool, ash blonde to make sure that I don’t look too washed out compared to the golden blonde!


This is what my hair looks like now:

I think the dark hair is a lot more striking, and people have said it makes my eyes stand out more too, which is lovely! Also, I think it matches my eyebrows better than the blonde.

I don’t think it does wash me out! I hope not anyway! The colour I chose is called Natural Golden Brown, from Nice and Easy, and I think the tone to it stopped me looking like a ghost!

You can get the colour here – Natural Golden Brown from Superdrug 🙂

What do you think looks best? Blonde or brunette? Let me know in the comments 🙂
