Hair color. The REAL STORY
Edited on Thu Mar-24-05 03:27 PM by chickenscratching
tell me the truth
do people with sunshine colored hair really have more fun?
why does carroty hair make people sexually excited?
why does chocolate or ebony colored hair get (in comparison) low recognition?

and if you respond, instead of using the commonly used color name you have to think of something else.
lame? i think so.

2. Hehehehehe...........
Don't know but I saw a strange head of hair on TV cable news yesterday.......CNN or MSNBC.

A woman named Wendy Long, former clerk to Clearance Thomas.
She was going on and on about the Terri Schiavo case, making about as much sense as an unrehearsed Chicken george speech.

One thing that was highly noticable was that each time she raised her eyebrows the top of her head with some kind of weird piled up hairdo moved. It looked as though an invisible hand reached into it and lifted it up! Too weird for words.

I guess that might be the result of working with the gropping Thomas!

Yeah, she was blonde..... ok sunshine colored !! }(

3. Recently I went from highlights back to my nearly black hair
I got more notice for my nearly black hair - almost - than I did for my highlighted brown with ash blonde highlights. Why? The dark hair goes with my complexion, eyes and eyebrows better than the highlighted hair did.

Now, as the little lines of grey move in - here's the question - should I color away the grey, or not?

8. i guess...
it goes back to what you were saying about complexion. who know, it might compliment it well.
i have this white streak running down the back of my head due to a pigmentation disorder, and people are truly transfixed by it.
maybe you could leave one daring streak, see what you think.

5. I couldn't tell you!
At this juncture, my hair is a fiery sunset overshadowed by night. (Or, mainly black with chunks of several reddish and auburn hues)

I have had many different hair colors, from most of the natural shades to a large chunk of the rainbow to neon colors. Never changed anything about me but my hair~

Always have fun with new colors and styles though!

6. Hair dyes are highly carcinogenic. Radiation makes you bald. That's IRONY!

7. I can say as a person with cocoa-colored hair
that yes, I do seem to get low recognition.

I don't know why you said it doesn't get low recognition in comparison... I think it does. I think because it's so frickin' common.

Ah, well...

11. I keep my follicles real
Edited on Thu Mar-24-05 03:41 PM by last_texas_dem
sporting the natural chestnut locks that grow in, with occasional interruptions of sunshine (particularly as they get longer) and light mahogany.

Oh yeah, and I tend to prefer the chocolate or midnight hair sporting women, so they don't get overlooked in my particular case. Overall, I'm not sure... There are more guys out there who like such colors than often get recognized.

16. It says something about a person, IMHO
Somebody who can accept their natural hair color seems more secure with how they look. They're not as hung up on outward appearances and have more of a 'like it or lump it' attitude-- at least, the ones I know-- your mileage may vary. :D

(OT: I notice you're from Mpls, too-- be sure to check out the Minnesota state forum on DU, too. It's pretty active and I think we may be having another meetup again real soon!) :hi:

19. Is it true blondes have more FUN?
I remember seeing this commerical as a kid. It's show two couples playing tennis and after the game the guys went off with the laughing blone while the dark haired girl stood by herself with her racket in hand.

A few weeks ago I was getting a sandwhich and the gal who served me had reddish blonde hair, almost pink. She told me she dyed her hair red because she was sick of people calling her "Blondie".

20. Mine ranges between a dark, and a light honey color
with natural highlights of gold and wheat. When it first grows in at the roots it looks pretty dark, but it lightens considerably as it grows out, especially if I spend a lot of time in the sun.
I've been adding partial highlights for a while to disguise any grays that might be showing up (I've never actually found one, but it's inevitable!) and to brighten it a bit (it looks a little drab to me sometimes). People have always thought my hair was highlighted even when it wasn't. I've had a couple of bad, overdone highlight jobs, so for the last two or three times I've had partial highlights and lowlights. This is when they do just the top and front sides of the hair, alternating between bleach for highlights, and color (as close to my natural as possible) for the lowlights. This is working well for me, so I guess I'll keep it up!

I believe people should stick to their natural tonal range; it's usually what goes best with one's complexion.

I believe being "blonde" has gotten me more attention through the years, but I get sick of the blonde jokes. In my observations, I've noticed men sometimes do double takes when they see blonde hair; the woman could have the face of a horse, but the blonde hair just seems to catch the eye initially.

I think the bleached blonde thing has been way overdone; even a lot of celebrities are going back to their natural colors to avoid being "just another blonde".

I think all natural hair colors are beautiful, and I envy beautiful women of all colors!
