Me, I always loved Marilyn Monroe and Jayne Mansfield shades of blonde. But it's very difficult to achieve (I have natural dark to medium brown hair). And it's hard to maintain. I did for 7 years, but boy, the haircuts I had to have every time I bleached it. It was crazy. But I had always liked their shades of blonde.

If you went blonde, what famous blonde celebs shade would you like to have or wished to have??

I'd want Reese Witherspoon's hair in the film Legally Blonde. It's the perfect shade. I saw the behind the scenes footage on the DVD and they said they had to dye her hair multiple times to get that shade. I have thick jet black hair though, so there's no way I could go blonde.

You absolutely can, I did. Check out my thread!!! I still have the same amount of hair, healthy and down to my butt long! O extensions but you need a good stylist.

I guess I'm pretty stumped about why you are surprised that your regrowth is so dark? What did you think was gong to happen?

I am a brunette, but if I could pick any Blonde I would want to look like, it would be Cybill Shepard. I have always thought she was absolutely gorgeous, and is a true blonde beauty. Moonlighting anyone?

I hope that when people are wishing to copy a celebrity's hair color they are taking into account their own skin tone which should be in the same range as theirs. Nothing is worse to me than women who have the wrong shade of blond just because they "love" it. Thankfully there's a good amount of women who instinctively choose the right one or who try to get advice on the subject from someone who knows, etc.

Incidentally, Marilyn Monroe sported many different shades of blond during her career, in the end she had a white blond shade. But I liked her best in this pale blond which I sort of copied but in an ash tone because it goes better with my skin tone.

I am in my 60's now, my natural hair color was brown. When I was young (teens and 20s) I went through various shades of blonde, from dark golden blonde to near platinum. Even with brown eyes, it flattered me very well.

Fast forward to today - my dyed brown hair is growing out it's natural silver/light brown mix, that almost, but not quite, reads "blonde." I don't want to use chemicals, so I use chamomile and cassia to bring out light golden tones which is flattering to my golden tan skin. If you have ever seen pictures of Sofia Vergara when she was younger, she is a natural blonde with a similar shade, and her skin tone is like mine. I prefer those types of "toned down" blonde looks now rather than the super platinum or pale blonde.

My natural hair color is dark blonde/very very light brown. It's ashy. I never had a specific celebrity whose blonde I wanted to emulate, but I used to lighten my hair slightly to a medium blonde. I am probably going to go for that again once this near-black is grown out!
