Red

I colored my hair. I don't particularly love it; I should have listened to everyone who told me that red wouldn't suit me. Oh well, it's just hair, and I can always change it again. I guess I just always had red-head envy!



Why is it that so many of us change our hair, when we're feeling low?

Don't worry, I've since been feeling better.

  4. As a redhead myself I may be a little biased, but I LOVE IT. It's a beautiful, warm shade against your skin. Kudos for trying something new, too.

    Love the blog, as always <3

  5. I think it looks great, but if it's too much for you, you could always add some lowlights of a darker brown, that way you would have some depth and movement. It's nice for summer though. You can always feel free to ask me anything about hair (colors, cuts, anything), It's my job! :)

  8. I have red hair just a little lighter (dyed from a dark brown) and maybe I'm biased too but you look GORGEOUS. If there is anyone to make that hair look fantastic, it is you.

    Have fun with it.

  11. Sorry dear, but you could dye your hair green and you would still look STUNNING.

  12. I did the exact same thing! I've always been so envious of redheads. But yours looks good!

  13. I agree with everyone. Initially I never really love a new hair color, I don't think many people do, but it will grow on you.

  15. You look lovely with red hair! From the picture it looks like the red intensifies the color of your eyes. Very pretty!

  16. I actually like the red. It brings out your eyes ALOT! I was like OMGosh when I saw it. Did wonders for your already nice eyes ^_^

    ReplyDelete
  17. i was thinking the exact same thing...it goes with your eye color amazingly! maybe you just need time to adjust to the change? i love it :)

    ReplyDelete
  18. I did the same thing...I had the whole redhead envy thing and gave in...I just recently went back to having black hair after living on the "fire side". For the record you look great with it! Isn't it fun to experiment?

    ReplyDelete
  19. so i'm just not understanding your lack of excitement for your new hair color because it looks AMAZING on you!!! personally i think it softens your complexion and it's great for the season ^_^. It's probably the drastic change from dark to light that's freaking you out a bit, no worries :3
    p.s. glad your feeling better! <3 your stuff!!!

  20. it looks so nice with your eyes!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Are you kidding? You look gorgeous! And your eyes look amazing too.

    ReplyDelete
  22. what?? I love it! it brings out your eyes! maybe you'll like it if it was a tad darker

    ReplyDelete
  23. It's pretty but I think you look better as a brunette! And I think we change our hair colors because it's a way of getting a fresh start, you know? In any case, glad to hear you're feeling better :]

  24. Your hairstyle and color + eyes looks really adorable!

  25. I occasionally dye my hair, and i always go for a red. Being a natural blonde, then my hair went darker with the long winter it is now brown.

    You've inspired me. Maybe it is time for me to dye my hair again!

    It looks way tre cute.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I think you look really nice. It brightens you up ^.^ But why are you feeling low? Hope your health is a-ok.

    ReplyDelete
  27. But it's gorgeous! I think you could even go for an even redder shade =)

    ReplyDelete
  28. I think it suits you well

    ReplyDelete
  29. I like it but the darker hair brings your facial feature better forewards (do you say it like that? :O Ah, well you know what I mean :P).

    And I change my hair but not because I'm low, I mostly sit and sob since I don't have to money to just do something like that :P I do dye it bright colours because I really like that :]

  30. Pues me gusta que el color de tu pelo sea igual al de tus ojos...muy bien! No sabría con que color quedarme.

  31. I am totally diggin' the red hair, Keiko. When I am feeling low, that is the fisrt thing I do too... either dye/cut my hair or go shopping, lol. It always makes me feel better.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Matches ur eyes..
    Good for you, my asian tan skin will never looks good with any other color except black. =S

    ReplyDelete
  33. I like the dark hair better, but this is by no means bad! I attempted to dye mine a darker brown last night, and it ended up black. I'm not pleased.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Red hair suits you! you look so nice!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Are you kidding? It's GORGEOUS, lady!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I think it works perfectly for you...perhaps you aren't so used to it being light, so there is always getting a darker shade of red...

    But still, I think it suits you well...

    ReplyDelete
  37. I love it!!! Such a pretty color!

    ReplyDelete
  38. As a fellow brunette-who-is-now-red, I really like it. Us super-pale types can pull it off.

    ReplyDelete
  39. i absolutely love the color on you. keep it like this for awhile, it may grow on you! fall/winter will come and you can possibly go darker again.. this is a nice change :]

    ReplyDelete
  40. I really like your new hair color, it brings out your beautiful eyes

    ReplyDelete
  41. i change my hair all the time! it's kind of refreshing, except when you don't like it :[ but i really like that color, it's nice and soft for summer and really makes your eyes pop.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I am a very picky person in what I like. I have to say I really think the red suits you well.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I think red really brings out your eyes! I bet it's a bit weird looking in the mirror and seeing a whole new color on your head, but you look great.
    I have pictures on my blog of the vintage blue dress you sold me. It's so gorgeous! It's one of my summer staples now.

  44. Are you serious? you look amazing with red hair, it highlights your eyes!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Oh, wow, you're so striking!! I really think you can do no wrong, Keiko. You're a lucky girl. :)

    ReplyDelete
  46. I think most of us look best with our natural color, but that doesn't mean this isn't striking! Your eyes are gorgeous with this red hair. I loved to be red a lot too, sadly it always washd out so fast.

    ReplyDelete
  47. i think it colors great with your hair now :)
    wish you luck and strength with everything :)

  48. I really like the red-hair! It makes your eye color pop! Redheads are the best :)

    ReplyDelete
  49. I dig the red. I may be a bit partial to the color though ;)

    ReplyDelete
  50. you look so gorgeous it's unbelievable :0

    ReplyDelete
  51. You're stunning either way- I love it darker and red. I'm glad you're not feeling low any longer..... -e

    ReplyDelete
  52. Girl, please, you could do no wrong with your look. You're gorgeous and I LOVE the hair.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Actually, you look so so so so stunning. Keep it like this a little longer, maybe you'll start to agree! It suits you so well.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Hey, I think it looks great! Maybe it would look a bit more natural on you if the eye makeup were less dramatic, perhaps something lighter? But at any rate it looks good with your skin, and is a nice natural color overall!

    ReplyDelete
  55. I think u look pretty with this colour :)

    ReplyDelete
  56. you still look pretty..! the back ground of that photo is just a bit overwhelming, i am willing to bet that out in the sun it looks gorgeous. red is sometimes harder to dress though...

    the brown and black and such were pretty too though, i don't know... keep it red for summer and dye it back for fall..?

    hope you're feeling better with the infection..! antibiotics, especially strong ones, are not fun :(

    ReplyDelete
  57. red head or not, you still look great. same here, i always go to the salon for a haircut or a trim whenever I sad :)

    ReplyDelete
  58. I actually think you look amazing! It sometimes takes time to get used to change. It really suits you well, and even if you change it back, at least you tried something different because you wanted to & weren't afraid! :)

    ReplyDelete
  59. Keiko- the red looks gorgeous!
    My blog post that mentions you is up! Have a read and see if you like it? I'm thinking of dying my hair red too!

  60. How did you get it red. My hair is dark brown and I have yet to succeed in getting it red :(

    ReplyDelete
  61. Your eyes pop so much in this photo! I think it's nice, although more importantly I love your attitude towards hair. I don't change my hair when I'm feeling low, but instead sometimes I'll put together fun outfits and take photos with my little sister. Hope the sweat gland issue clears up soon!

  62. this colour works! :)

  63. You look beautiful, your hair looks amazing that color. Just don't go blonde!

  64. I think it looks great!

    Can you show us how you get your bangs to look so awesome? Mine are always hit and miss. Some days they behave and some days they feather at the ends by the end of the work day.

  65. It looks great on you! If I would ever dye my hair, it would definitaly be something red-ish aswell!

  66. Hi! I like the red hair! This is a strange little fact but did u know that Max Factor (yes he was realy a person, i always thought it was the brand name...) had 4 diffrent rooms with the walls painted diffrent colours. when he was given a starlet to make over he would take them into the diffrent rooms and depending in which room the lookws best in he would chnge there hair colours. so he had a dusky pink room for brunettes, a pale blue for blones, a green for red heads and a peach room for brownettes. when he was given little norma jean he saw she looked best in the blue rooms and made her platinum blonde! this story is going somewer! U look great againts ur aqua wallls, hence red hair suits u! ok thats my lecture over, bascilay i think it looks great! xxxx

  67. it's beautiful, what did you use?

    ReplyDelete
  68. I think the red hair looks good on you. I have light brown hair and I am constantly dying it black. I have also done it red in the past and I loved it! Enjoy it and experiment with your hair!

    I believe that many of us change our hair when we are feeling down becuz we seek some sort of excitement in our lives and just want to feel better.

  69. I love it and I just went red myself, from a hair color very similar to your original color! red-head envy has turned into being a redhead! i love it.

  70. I think this color looks good on you. I love red hair, I have red hair ;o)
