I was a white blond as a child. I have DARK brown hair as an adult. This didn't happen overnight, it was a gradual progression where my roots were always darker than the tips. So for me, ombre coloring does look natural.

I hate that look. Not only are the roots unnaturally dark, but the hair texture looks too different, too. I think the darker roots look greasy. I currently have an ombre look because my hairdresser kept bugging me to try it and I HATE it. Mine is pretty subtle, but I still dislike it.

I was blonde as a child and my roots were always SLIGHTLY darker than the rest of my hair--especially in the fall since I spent so much time outside during the summer. However, the texture and tone were extremely similar---as in golden blonde to golden brown.

It kept getting darker as I got older. If I stay out of the sun/pale = dark brown. Sun/tan = golden blonde.

I am also one of those freaky brown eyed blondes.
LOL

That seems like it could be a fun way to play around with your look. My hair was brown as a child and dark brown as an adult. So boring!! The sun barely lightens it, maybe it becomes a more golden brown if I'm lucky.

What do you think of roots? Do you wear your roots long or touch up your roots as often as possible?

Opinions from men and women are welcome.

Because they are jealous of natural blondes, hence they go and bleach their hair.

Actually you don't need to see the roots to notice if a blonde is natural or fake, because natural blondes usually have different facial features, complexion and the hair is thinner.

You can thank your italian genes, Italian people are rarely blondes, less so in adulthood.

One of the good things about my Italian genes is that my hair is thick and strong enough to withstand highlight bleaching and still look good

One of my uncles was blonde with blues eyes and he is a mix of Italian, Spanish, and maybe some Native American. I have no idea how that happened because the rest of that side of the family looks Mediterranean.

well there are mediterraneans with lighter hair aswell, but they are usually light brown/dirty blond, but you still can tell they look mediterranean because of their other features (facial structure,body proportions,skin complexion,etc)

Now true blonde northern european are way different, usually way blonder than mediterranean light haired people and have different facial features, body proportions,and,skin complexion (they are usually way taller aswell).

Also northern european blondes almost always have very thin hair
