I'm a natural blonde, and have always been picked on, told blonde jokes, etc. Not sure if we have more fun or not. Good luck!

Me too....but I have a great sense of humor, and laugh my butt off sometimes (if it's not a lame joke)
I don't really see it as being "picked on" per se.

Ditto.
My brothers are natural blondes too, and we pass around blonde jokes all the time.

HAIR COLOR CHART For Revlon

Lots to choose from - I really promote seeing a salon person who can honestly suggest a color that suits you - and if it gets done "wrong" - THEY can fix it.

Trust me - it is embarrassing to have to run to the store to buy different dye with PURPLE hair that was supposed to be red about 25 years ago

Yes--I too have always been blond. Even naturally had streaks of white in my hair. But now I'm a grandmother and the gray is starting to come in--ugh! So I started coloring it as close to natural as I could. I use to do my own hair. And then something happened. Not sure why but all of a sudden my hair decided it wanted to be "orange"! Oh my!! I'm not talking orange highlights but pumpkin orange. It didn't matter what I put on it it turned orange. So I very quickly went to a professional hair color person and she straightened it all out. But even today if we aren't careful that dreadful orange will creep back in. Now that I have moved to NC and using well water my hair likes to have "green" highlights. Geeze. Oh well, I'll take green anyday over orange. My beautician got me some shampoo that helps take out the green. It's a never ending battle with me. But I am still blond---even my hair everyplace on me is blond. Wonder if that ever turns gray too?!

So what do they do about roots? Mine are so dark brown and long for not coloring it for such a long time. Will they bleach that part? I'll probably do the all over foil highlights like i did before. Maybe this time I won't look like Angela, hehe.

I think the worst thing I did to my hair was dye it black when I was in high school. I was going through my headbanger faze and thought it would look cool and sexy. Not! It made me look so pale and sickly but it did bring out the blue in my eyes. Thank goodness it was temporary. When I dyed my hair red it looked really good and everyone loved it except for my boyfriend at the time. He absolutely hated it. He was a big jerk anyways. But I didn't keep up with it.

What color shampoos do you use to keep the color long lasting?

Use a shampoo that does NOT contain sulphate.
I think the whole phrase is ammodium laurel sulphate or something like that.
It's usually the first or second ingredient in most shampoos and will strip your color.
Alba is a good one and can be found in health food stores. Fat hair is another, found at Walgreens.
Just check the ingredients.

Go into a good salon, and look at the hair and fashion trends right now......they are SO COOL!

Lot's and Lot's of dimension, texture....easy to care for styles, and the new colors and color combo's they can come up with are stunning and absolutely FABULOUS!
I was blown away........
Time to update, Fiddle......you only live once, and should try different things.

lol everyone wants the opposite- my hair is natural dark blonde- but I always loved dark- blue black hair- I have a gf from the mid-east- beautiful dark, thick hair-

But it would look too dark for pale skin--Elizabeth Taylor, when she was young- was stunning-

Reese Witherspoon looks natural, but I cant stand the bleached plastic Paris Hilton color. Too garish.

I TOTALLY regret the first time I colored my hair.

I was a tow-head as a child and as my hair darkened it was also sun-bleached. So I stayed blond through my 30s. One summer, the sun didn't do it's job, so I tried to high-light it myself. EEK! Big mistake. Got professional color to hide my screw-up and that's been that since then: 3-6 times a year @ 90 to 150 a pop. Color, foil, you name it.

Wish I'd just let it get naturally gray. But, once you start....
