I think some people think they will get prettier by dyeing (sp?) their hair blonde, which most likely isn't true.

I have always noticed that women with assymetric features or a strong jaw or nose look better some times with the softer look of golden hair.

Dark or brunette hair frames the face and showcases symmetrical and even features more than light hair.

This is why Jennifer Aniston shines as a blonde and Angelina Jolie stays brunette even though Aniston is naturally brunette and Jolie is naturally dark blonde/dishwater.

IMO, I think Aniston looks way better with darker hair...a darker blonde with highlights. Same with Jessica Parker, she goes too blonde sometimes, looks good with darker blonde.

As far as going blonde, men always say it is the most sexy haircolor (I don't necessarily agree) but it is still the most popular color in the US. A woman definitely gets more attention from men as a blonde. Now I really don't like blonde/light hair on guys at all.

About 95% of the time it is obvious and right off the bat conclusions (whether right or wrong) are drawn about people who dye their hair blond.

"...she must not like herself..."
"...anybody that wastes money like that..."

I wonder if there is a correlation with people who dye their hair blond with the amount of time they read People, Glamor, Self, and other magazines of that nature.

Because I'm blonde. I'm an medium/dark ash blonde. My hair isn't graying a ton, but I am losing pigment in my hair... so I use a light ash blonde hair color every once in a while to tone it up.

That's also why I dye my eyebrows -- other wise they fade away to nothing.

My natural hair is a honey color blonde.
When I was young I dyed it lighter and darker
just for something different.
I haven't dyed it since about 1980.
Now it's getting grey. Boo hoo, I'll miss the blonde...

Because I had blonde hair my first 30 years... It feels odd when it goes darker year after year, I feel stranger to look at me. I always wait to see that white hair girl I know and there is some corn headed old woman now in the mirror No idea who that one is ... Some day I guess I start to color it to white again ... Or then I am not...

I think the OP was referring to people who were not naturally blonde. I always thought blonde in a bottle added to the features of a non blonde a bit out of sync myself but I guess that is the new look for the ages.

I use to have lighter brown/blonde hair and blue eyes, like my grandfather, until I started keeping up with politics..

*@ features - dark eyes, thick darker eyebrows and body hair, and thicker hair

I used to work with a girl whose dark hair was so heavily frosted that it made her look blonde. I cannot stand the light-hair-with-dark-roots look ~ never got used to it. I much prefer to see dark-turned-blond hair to be ALL lightened, with perhaps lighter highlights if needed.

My very favorite blond shade is a honey blond that is not too common naturally. But my sister-in-law had honey-blond hair when she was young, a rich heavily golden very shiny color. Loved it.
