Testing Out Different Hair Colors...

Ok so after posting yesterday's blog post featuring the beautiful Claire from De Lune, I got a little curious as to how I would look with her amazing red hair color.  So I hopped into photoshop and went a little crazy testing out different hair colors!  I went from exploring different shades of red, then all different natural colors to the brightest rainbow shades possible.  And after all the fun, I decided that I should probably just stick to my natural brown.  It suits me best anyway.  But then again... the purple is kind of rad :)  In high school and college, I dyed my hair every natural shade possible, from blonde blonde to red to almost black.  I kinda wish I had experimented with rainbow colors, as I look back on those days of dying my hair a new shade every 2 months. 
Two ladies who really rock the brightly colored hair are The Dainty Squid and Love, Elycia.  They both have AMAZING purple hair right now.  And I may have become even more jealous of their hair now that I've photoshopped it on to myself!  But I'll go ahead and leave the amazing technicolor hair coloring to Elycia and Kaylah.  They are definitely masters of the art of rainbow hair.

What color have you daydreamed of dying your hair to?

You would so totally rock purple - or that fuchsia! I love your natural color, but if ya wanna go a little wild - DO IT!!! No one is stopping you!!!

I'm going cotton candy pink on Tuesday (or whenever my manic panic is delivered...) SO EXCITED!!!

I love you with the dark hair. I really love dark hair and light eyes, there is something so beautiful about it to me. I've had my hair every color, so at this point I'm just super happy to be living with my natural color.

I actually am really liking that red hair on you! I feel like it looks so good on pale skin... it really brings out the warm tones and complements you well! I wish I could go into a weird color... Although if I dyed my hair I'm pretty sure it would look terrible! Maybe the ends though, one day. I always wanted to do black fading to lavender... or silvery white all over!

They all look great! Although the 'Dark' looks pretty amazing.

All of these colours really suit you! I especially like the red & the fuschia though :) x

Sammi said...

The red and purple look amazing on you!

kelly ann said...

UMMM, you could totally rock the fuchsia & purple. Aaaand I might just be partial, but I think you'd make a pretty redhead, too. ;) Your natural shade is so lovely, though, and I LOVE how you styled it in this picture. Soft and pretty.

I actually saw a photo recently of a redhead who dyed the tips of her hair purple. It was SO BADASS. I kind of want to do it.

The purple really does suit you! I love coloured hair and i've had every colour imaginable! At the moment its brown, dip dyed blue. It's the first time in around 10 years i've had a colour close to my natural colour. My best friend of 20 years didn't recognise me!

Sandra said...

The red and the dark are the best! :)

I'm loving the way that red and dark look on you. If you wanted to go wild, I think the pink looks really pretty.

I think the red suits you and you pull off the pink really well xx

I dyed my about half of my hair in the end of my senior year to a very vibrant purple color that still hasn't completely gone away. I later had to dye it a dark red so my drill sergeant wouldn't cut it off.
I miss dying my hair fun colors. I can't wait to do it again!

Gawgus things... said...

I've just coloured my hair a quite vibrant red (for me anyway!). Funnily enough, I thought the natural one suited you best, ha, ha!! XX

Kim said...

You would make a stunning redhead or dark brunette! I've always loved dark or red hair with lighter eyes, I suppose its the contrast. I giggled when I saw this post because I was editing some photos the other night for a friend's Twilight charity fundraiser (ya' know, the red eyes, pale skin, etc), and I found myself messing with all their hair the same way you did here. I love Photoshop! I've been meaning to go back and "dye" mine as well :)

AMBER♥ said...

you could rock ANY of these colors! i have always wanted bright red hair.

I BLEED PINK said...

I really like the fuchsia on you!

julia said...

I love the dark hair.
but the natural one and the red one look fine.

Alli (One Pearl Button) said...

You know, I kind of love the 'blonder' option on you. It's unexpected!

I've been in love with cotton candy pink hair lately. I was in a craft show in the spring and the girl at the booth next to me had the most amazing pink hair. I have to keep my color looking natural for professional reasons though, so I'll stick with red!

Ruzu said...

You look great with dark and blonde hair :D red, maybe more auburn jejej

Arielle said...

I've always wanted a really bright red. I love Mandy Moore's color on Because I Said So. But, I'm just gonna stick with my dark hair :)

I wanted to dye my hair red forever and I finally bucked up the courage to do it and I LOVE it! I'm naturally blonde so I was worried it would look bad but it is great!!! p.s. I like that fuchsia on you! (You can see my change here: http://acollectionofpassions.com/blog/post-pregnancy-style-new-hair)

i actually love the blue hair on you! especially with the headband, it reminds me of a fairy ice princess or something :)

lizzie said...

i like the darker color! i just died mine darker and i really love it for fall. it looks great on you from your Photoshop skeelz.

Awmber said...

Oh Moorea! I think that the red would reaaaally suit you! You look like a true redhead there!! I'm planning on dying my hair a pretty turquoise soon :)

Arlie said...

I dyed my hair with henna a few days back and I love it. It's such a nice natural shade of red... and I think it would be perfect for you! Have you ever tried it?

Sarah said...

I think red or blonde would look amazing on you! Are you thinking about giving it a shot?

kate gabrielle said...

Wow, this is awesome!! I'm thinking about going back to brown but I never even thought to try photoshopping a photo to see what it'll look like :D

ps. The purple would be AMAZING on you!!

Violet Bella said...

this is so fun! you are so savvvy in that dear photoshop :) those are fun! i must say though, i love your natural the best! ive been almost every shade above at some point in my life, when i was younger i went crazy with the hair dye, and the older i get, the more im really embracing the beauty of natural shades. xo.

Too fun!

Katrina said...

Amazing idea!! Love your creativity. Red and blonde looks SO good on you, dye in either of them?? : ) I would love to have that head piece. Where will I buy them from?

I have daydreamed making my hair super pink but everybody were like nooooooo. Just because I have a pinkish skin. Fumed! But I am quite happy with my brown hair, which I'd dyed quite recently...a lot of people has complimented me being a brunette.

katrina, xo

Vanessa said...

I am on a red kick lately! Right now my hair is a deep brown, but I am thinking that once it grows out a bit, I'd love to go red!

LauraJane said...

How cool is this? I love the dark hair and the red hair on you, though you honestly would be gorgeous with any of these, you lucky duck!

I love the fuchsia on you! The dark looks great, too! Your natural color is pretty but if you're in the mood to change things up I think you've got some options here :)

Kai.Mercado. said...

wow. You honestly look good with literally any color. I am jealous! Go for something fun!

Ruthy said...

All those colors look good on you. I have also tried a lot of natural hair colors but have never ventured into the blue and purples.

sarah nicole said...

Love the dark brown!

I have always wanted to be red as well, but I just don't think it would work on me. : /

xo,

Sarah
