What's funny is that now if I dye my hair, I get red. I used platinum blond the other day and am also a carrot top nixed with light blonde. I'm going to have to fix it but am not sure what I'll do. Dye just doesn't work for me
Strawberry blonde is such an unusual and beautiful color! What's your genetic heritage? My grandfather had flaming red hair as a child; his parents were from Scotland. I have freckles and hazel eyes, but brown hair. However, the brown has stray red and a few blond hairs mixed in. My hairdresser told me I was born to be a redhead due to my features.

I'm a natural blond, always have been. Though there are some whites popping in here and there. I hope I end up like my 92 yo grandmother who is mostly white now but still has blond punches.

An important observation, yes.
White blond look ( for example) doesn't work well on men ( in my opinion at least.)
Dark blond looks great on them.

I wondered the same thing as OP!! Especially in show business, 99% of all blond women are fake blonds. Every single one has dark roots.

In real life, same thing. Every time I see a blond at a random place like a grocery store or amusement park, they have dark roots under the top blond layer.

Another natural blonde here. I gave up on my real color when it faded to dishwater dinginess and have been hennaing it for nearly a decade. I get more compliments on my deep auburn-red hair now than I ever did as a blonde.

Oh yeah, Hollywood blondes. And why does "blonde" refer to a woman? The question was about blonde hair. I'm a woman and my ex has blonde hair. Lots of men have blonde hair.

"Blonde" refers to a woman. "Blond" to a man. The "-e" is the feminine form of the word. (Comes from French)
