Dark Hair Equals Fun Girl

The saying that "blondes have more fun" was not created by a darked hair hottie. Of course, if more research was made, the facts would include, "blondes have more fun in the absence of dark haired hotties". Yep! It's been said and it will continue to be said. Dark haired beauties have more fun than any other beauty. 

Dark haired beauties have to remain conservative, and yet animated; they have to maintain great responsibilities, and yet have an approachable side. So you see, the dark hair beauty has much to uphold when it comes to balance. 

So, let's say you've been wondering of which hair color to choose as the seasons change. You've been blonde, red, and you've even tried pink and purple. But when it comes to doing dark, you seem hesitant. It could be due to the stereotypes placed on dark hair beauties. You don't want to come off as uptight, too serious, or distant. However, the more you think about it, the more reason you find in the ideas that come with going dark.

For example, your new dark hair will give you a sense of mystery. You will have the option to add highlights to your dark hair color. And finally, the hair style ideas are ridiculous. You'll have so much fun with your new dark hair that you'll wonder why it took so long to make this decision. So, let's explore the ideas and possibilities.

Dark Hair Don't Care

The idea of coloring your brown hair dark can be frightening, or unimagineable if you are a blonde. But, for one moment, imagine where your mysterious side gets to be explored. You can mystify your circle of friends with the choice to color your hair dark. You can bring excitement to your hair styles, and bring out the most unknown parts of yourself out to play.

But, then again, you could play it safe, keep your hair as it is and wonder what is missing in your life. Well, the choice is yours. But, one thing that's for sure, those who venture out of their comfort zones are more happy and confident. So, would you rather be as confident as Wonder Woman, or live in the shadows of your unknown self?

You decide.
