    i'm naturally blonde, and even i have trouble finding a good colourist if i want to get highlights. most of them either like the trashy, cheap brassy look or they don't know how to make it look natural. you need a professional who will put in several different shades (lowlights and highlights) and make them look natural. also, someone who knows how to put in highlights (handpainted, instead of just poking bits of hair out of those perforated rubber caps) so they don't grow out horribly but rather in a more progressive way. they have to know where to put in the highlights so it looks natural and not just like random stripes of different colour hair.

    i also agree with la folie that you need to lose the white eyeshadow. i don't think you need any bronzer but some natural looking blush would be nice.
    as soon as you get a darker, more natural looking hair colour you won't look washed out anymore but it will also help if you invest in make up that flatters your colouring more. i don't think there is anything wrong with being pale (i'm pale myself) but it is important to know what flatters your colouring and what doesn't.

    and no, you don't need to reshape your brows and don't listen to anyone who tells you that you should. same goes for lightening/bleaching eyebrows - it always looks weird and wrong, i'm definitely not a fan. i love strong, arched brows and you have them. the only shaping they need is to pluck out the hairs that fall outside the line.

    ^^^^That's assuming the natural look is what someoneis going for. Personally, I think the 'natural' look is overrated. Loni Anderson looked way better as a blonde. I don't think something has to look real in order to look good, sometimes I like the high glamour of the 'done' look when it comes to hair and dramatic eye makeup. What doesn't look good to me is overdone foundation/powder/blush.

    Which brings me to the subject of being 'washed out': what about people who are naturally fair and naturally very blonde? Or people who are dark skinned and have dark hair? Are they all washed out,too?

    no. not usually anyway. the washed out comes from having a hair colour that doesn't suit her natural colouring and make up that doesn't compliment her either.

    and yeah, 'unnatural' blonde can look good too. i personally don't think loni anderson is a good example because i think she looked cheap as hell and there is nothing i hate more than her pissy shade of bleached blonde hair. i was thinking more along the lines of marilyn or brigitte bardot. BUT that kind of look is really high maintenance and you need a hell of a lot of style and pizzazz to pull it off without looking cheap. not to mention a lot of expertise when it comes to make-up, so as not to look washed out.

    I agree with these points and also that many women just have this desire to try out blonde and then lean on it as a security blanket whether it looks the best on them or not. It's like blonde hair can provide the illusion of attractiveness (as can cleavage, a tan, lots of makeup) and distract away from the fact that someone lacks pretty features.

    You certainly do have a beautiful face, but I agree with the other posters about the hair color. It is just too white. It doesnt even closely resemble a natural hair color. A darker shade of blonde would look much better. Also, since you asked, and since I like placing judgement on others without too much fear of reprecutions, I think your hair is too thin for the length you have. The length makes it look really fine and thin. A shorter cut would make it look more full and would help frame your face. And, while I am at it, I should give some "stupid advice" too. Your eyebrows do need some work, and not just the color. You have several stray hairs in the pictures you provided...its almost like peace fuzz between your eyebrow and your temple. That needs to be cleaned up. A quick wax would do the job without having to reshape them...touch up in the middle too while you are at it. Eyebrows are usually the very first thing I notice about anyone I meet. If they are too done, I notice. If they are not done at all, I notice. If they are perfectly shaped, waxed and colored, I fall in love immediately. Good luck...we, and I think i speak for most of us, would love to see the after pictures.

    Sh only looks to be about 12-14, so go easy on her. It's hard enough to grow up without giving her another complex.

    i think she's going to be more insulted that you think she's so young than getting more "stupid" comments regarding her eyebrows.

    vanessa - your hair is WAY too light. white hair doesn't look good on anyone. i agree with what everyone has said so far, you need to shorten it a bit so it looks fuller and go a much warmer blonde with highlights and lowlights.

    With blonde hair it's not just the darkness/lightness that matters, it's whether you look better with a cooler (ashier) tone or a warmer one.

    If the tone is right, then sometimes adjusting the lightness vs. darkness works, but if it the tone is wrong, it will look bad no matter how dark or light you go.

    It is fun to experiment and I'm sure you will figure it out for yourself. You are very pretty and you could probably get away with a lot of different hair colors.

    Have you changed your hair, yet? I'd love to see pictures.

    I like your look, but you might make it more retro by shaping your brows and adding red lips (Gwen Stefani-lite). Your skin is lovely!

    I think her brows are great the way they are.

    I like it. I've seen a lot of natural blondes with this colouring (my ex being one of them) and I think it looks really cool.

    I haaaaaaaate when people's eyebrows are so blonde you can't see them...creepy!

    Also you definitely do NOT look trashy! lol
