I love busting the beauty myths. In fact, I think I’d like to do a little beauty myth series!

First myth up for discussion….

You can’t go darker in the spring/summer.

There is no reason you can’t go dark in the spring or summer, even if you are a natural blonde. Hell, go witch dark for all I care! If you like your hair dark, go dark whenever the heck ya want! Apparently his myth makes me talk like a darn tootin’ Midwesterner.

Shifting focus back to the topic at can absolutely go dark in the spring and or summer.

After all, there is such thing as brunette mermaids too.

    I always tend to go darker in the summer and brighter in the winter, usually varying shades of red. A bright red hue helps cheer me up in the dull winter months! Plus, my skin is paler then so I can pull the shade off more ;-)

    Reags, if I didn’t know better I’d say that mermaid was you! Seriously, looks just like you.

    How is the Pip? Miss hearing about her!

    I spend as much time as possible on the lake or at the pool (not *in* the pool…avoid chlorine in the hair as much as possible) and my hair always turns orange if I try to stay dark. I try to do the hat and even sunscreen hair spray but it never helps. Any thoughts?

    Love this, I have snow white skin but light brown hair and I was thinking of going almost black for that high contrast look… now I am going to do it! You make me braver about my hair:)

  6. Laura B Says:

    Yay! I love my hair it’s natural color (dark auburnish brown), but I get lots of pressure to go lighter, especially in summer. Now, if I could just get my slippery hair to hold some lovely mermaid waves…

    i sure hope dark hair is ok in the summer cause that’s all i got :) :)

    side note: darkie is usually an offensive term, i know that’s obviously not what you meant but maybe i’d change the title of this post?

    LOL. I love this. I totally agree! I told my hubs the other night that if I believed in coming back after death, I’d want to be a mermaid (if there were such things) He responded with ” but I don’t like fish” LOL. I have a bit of both. My blonde through the top, and some 3v underneath and a few pieces in the fringe for that pop.

    I have a hair appointment scheduled next week to take my blonde highlights back to more brunette (I’m a natural brunette with a ton of highlights). Glad to read it’s okay… although, to be honest, I am just sick of this blonde and would do the switch regardless of whether or not it’s acceptable ;)

  10. Christine Says:

    I fully agree, you can go dark anytime!! I find I usually go darker (red) in the summer just to stand out a bit from all the blonde!!
