View Full Version : Is This Strawberry Blonde?

On my birth certificate it says I had strawberry blonde hair.

Since my hair has multiple shades (from sun exposure) it's hard for me to decide what my natural color is nowadays. Would it be considered strawberry blonde? Here is my hair after a long winter:) Thank you!

I don't think so. It's not red enough for me to think strawberry blonde. This is what I think strawberry blonde is: http://www.trendfashion2013.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/12/18_strawberry_blonde_hair.jpg

After seeing these photos I think mine has a hint of strawberry blonde but overall is not.

I think your hair is somewhere just barely in the strawberry spectrum. I know of a girl who says that she dyed her hair strawberry blonde and it looks similar to yours. However, most artificial hair dyes for the color have a bolder pink/red element so this is what a lot of people might expect to see when they hear strawberry blonde.

I think you're just a golden blonde, from your pictures. I went to school with a girl with true strawberry blonde hair, and it was basically the color of rose gold, sort of like a pink/pale copper/golden color that's really difficult to pin down.

I very respectfully disagree.
It's strawberry. --going from the bottom picture in the blue shirt.

You also have the redhead standard-issue boatload of freckles. Non-redheads typically don't have freckles on their lips. They just don't!
Strawberry hair is difficult to capture in pictures. The color sometimes doesn't come through properly.

My hair was strawberry until my mid-20's, then faded to ash brown. (I henna the dickens out of it, though! I don't feel right without red hair!)
(FWIW: Even at my age, I still have freckles on my lips!)

Sadly, I can't see your pictures. I adore strawberry blonde hair. Your profile picture looks like you might be.

I have a bit of strawberry in mine, but not tons. I usually identify as a dark blonde (although I'd love to be more strawberry!). I have a lot of redheads in my family so I always forget that I have some too. In the past two weeks three different people remarked on the red in my hair -- one of them even called me a redhead. It made me super-happy. Still, I fear I'm not quite red enough to be firmly a strawberry blonde.

Judging by your profile picture, I would say that you could get away with calling yourself strawbery-blonde. :P Red doesn't show up the same in blonde hair the way it shows up in darker hair; it has a more orangey-goldish tinge, rather than a deep red or auburn. You look like you have some faint orange tones to your hair. :)
