    Hello, I suffer from paranoia because of my weight, I always think people are judging me, anyways im working on that.. But would you guys tell me if Im blonde or ginger? I dyed my hair and it was golden blonde, some of my hair has turned the whitish blonde I was hoping for, but other bits look abit yellow and im really worried I look stupid..

    this is a poll so feel free to tell the truth..
    And I know this is stupid, but you will be helping me LOADs if your honest.

    sometimes if you look at a colour under artificial light it can look a bit yellow/orangefrom the bulb, but the best way is to take a mirror outside and look in natural light at your hair colour and you will see better.

    Sorry gonna be brutally honest its a bit more golden in places...

    Hiya Hun
    Did you dye it yourself or in a salon? The thing with home dyes is that you cant use a toner if you need to. It calms the colour down. And dont be down about yourself and weight, your a lovely looking fella

    Thanks everyone for being honest :)

    It was a little orange lol, so today I went and bought some proxide, my hair and eyebrows are now white! Which is the color I wanted originally :)

    The reason I want it white is because next month Im hoping to dye it cyan blue, or aqua blue.. And when you dye a color over white hair, especially a light color, you get the best result =)

    Thanks :)

    Picture 1 looks ginger
    Picture 2 looks blonde

    Imagine your hair like velvet depending upon which angle and light you stand at/in it'll change colour. If I saw you IRL I suspect you'd look blonde to me. I hope your eyes aren't that colour in real life though ... cos I'd say it was your eyes folks were staring at ;) (I'm joking here ...)

    I don't think you have anything to worry about. It's the way the light is catching you hair coupled with the density of the hair and the way it lies on the top of your head compared to the sides.

    i would say you are officially classed as strawberry blonde (which is on the border of ginger but not quite)

    you can buy a purple shampoo to wash your hair and this will take away the golden/yellow tones that are in it. It is commonly used so give it a go.

    Go to Boots and buy yourself a colour mousse in SILVER - it comes out purple but if you apply a good dollop of it to your hair you will find that it tones out the golden (NOT ginger) bits.
    You are far from ginger - not under any stretch of the imagination, but you have got goldy bits in.

    Trust me on the mousse, and after using it for several days you will get a build up which will give you the white-blonde effect that you are looking for.

    Let me know howyou get on.....

    Be happy with yourself!
