blonde, brunette, or redhead

Over the years, I have been a blonde, brunette, redhead, and many shades in between. These days en femme, I am usually blonde, but occasionally I still make forays into other corners of the color spectrum.

I think blonde is my best hair color, but sometimes I have doubts about that. After my last makeover at Sephora, the cosmetician said I would look fabulous in a short black hair style. (Who would have thought?)

This week's e-mail from Marie Claire magazine had a short article, "Find Your Best Hair Color," and that got me thinking about my hair color again.

So I searched the net and found these Web pages that will help selecting a hair color: Hair Color 101: Choosing the Correct Hair Color, How To Choose a Hair Color That Suits You, and Choosing Your Skin Tone and Enhancing Your Hair Color.

After you settle on a hair color, then you can pick a hair style. Whereas skin tone is the key to selecting a hair color, the shape of your face is important in selecting a hair style. Choosing a Hair Style does a good job addressing the matter.

So, how do you think I would look in a black Zeta-Jones Chicago wig?


  1. I like the look, but I usually have to go with longer hair, as I have a round face. If I wear something that short, my head looks huge. If you can work it, though, go for it!

  2. I'd love to have that Zeta Jones hair look... as Jaye said: my head too may not work with it.
    You look so good in blonde, Staci...

  3. I am wearing my hair like that now or trying lol, and god that color is fantastic. You look great as a blond why the change, if you look great in the color don't change it. That is just my opinion hun.

  4. My head's probably too big for that hairdo, too.

    By popular demand (Jaye, Deborah, and Shauna), I think will stick with something in the blonde family!
