    Default Difference Between Dark Blonde and Light Brown Hair?

    Does anyone know of any pictures anywhere that would show the difference between dark blonde and light brown hair? I don't know if I can still call my hair blonde at all.

    Can anyone explain the difference?

    That stumps me too. The one thing I know is that regardless of how dark my sister's hair is, NEVER call it brown, not even light golden brown.

    I have no idea. They are pretty much one and the same to me. My hair is "dark ash blonde" or "light ash brown". It's more fun to call it blonde if brown seems too boring. That's about all there is to it, as far my brain goes.

    My hair is smack in the middle of dark ash blonde and light ash brown. Or, light mouse brown as I call it.

    I have no clue. My mom always called my hair blonde, so that's what I call it, too. Even though it doesn't really look all that blonde to me these days...

    Try this. We had to learn to type hair like this in cosmetology school. http://www.headhuntershair.com/hair/newimagecolors.jpg

    Exactly. I work on the principle that if it's on my head, then it's blonde, no matter how dark a blonde. As the silvers come in, it's champagne blonde. Luckily my DH agrees.

    Long time ago, I asked about colors on this board. What I found out is what people call "blond" varies. Especially in the US, it seemed blond refers to a wide range of colors. What I see as "brown" is often called blond in this country, which puzzled me at first. Well it still does.

    I just call my natural color blonette. XD

    People seem to look at me when I called it blonde and say "you aren't blonde" and if I called myself brunette I would get the opposite. These people practically sounded offended! And personally, *I* consider it offensive when people call it dish water or mousy.

    If your hair gets gold highlights under the sun, I here by dub thee blonette.

    Sounds much prettier.
