I'm just curious, what do you guys think? Do you prefer me as a beautiful blonde like I currently am right now, or a brunette?

I already know what I prefer on myself, but still just for kicks I'd like to see your opinions.

This was taken in the summer of 2008. I'm with a good friend of mine here. Wow, my hair was so short back then, it barely reached my waist!

I personally like both!!!

I find the brunette lovely on you though. If it's possible, it kind of makes your hair look longer?!

Honestly, I like you better as a brunette.

That said, I've noticed that I'm biased toward preferring fairly high contrast between skin tone and hair tone.

January 31st, 2012, 09:53 AM
first of all,Eric I think you look great and your hair is gorgeous both ways!!
But- If it were me I'd go with your dark hair with a few blond highlights, I think that would look super!
But you look great both ways!

January 31st, 2012, 09:59 AM
I think you look gorgeous either way! But my favorite hair on you is the blonde :D! It looks extremely unique with your skin tone, and the fact that it is long and healthy makes it that much more appealing. :flower:

I like the brunette/dark! Is that your natural colour? Im all for natural!

Blonde. It gives you more of a sumthin-sumthin.

You definitely rock both colours! But if I have to choose, I'ma go with the dark hair. I think that like Anje, I'm biased towards fairly high contrast between hair and skin tone.

Both colors look great on you! I'm partial to the natural look myself, but think you've got the ability to pull off either look well. Do what makes you happiest! :joy:

That's a tough question. Your hair is thoroughly amazing regardless of the colour. But looking through your albums, my favourites are the brunette with the blonde streaks (a look I don't normally like, but you pull it off tremendously), and the picture in which you are sitting and wearing sunglasses and your hair is medium brownish-red (I suck at describing colour).
ugh, i hope this makes sense. i have total braincloud today.

Both colors look great on you! I expected the brown would be more suitable ( I am a big fan of natural hair colours), but strangely enough I think the blond suits you better. It matches with your personality and makes you look very unique. Also it makes ur eyes pop out! So I would say..blonde!:-)

joflakes
January 31st, 2012, 10:35 AM
I can't choose! I think the blonde is very unusual and striking but the dark is also striking, just in a more natural kinda way. Either is good. I'm with the 'whatever you're happiest with' crowd!

I think you look best with the dark hair. It makes your hair look more substantive somehow. I'm not sure how to describe it. I guess the blond looks more fragile? Like I would be afraid to touch it in case I messed it up. The brunette I would love to braid. :)

You look great in both, and you know it! :p

The blonde has a high eye-catching shock value. But I have to say that I prefer the dark - it's just so luxurious. I'd admire the blonde from afar, but I'd want to play with it when it's dark. ;)

Blonde! 1. You pull the colour off perfectly, 2. It is something different, 3. Long, healthy, blonde hair is a real rarity :)

vanillabones

I like the dark with blonde highlights on you :) but if I had to chose one.... I guess dark but I really like you with highlights at least! It looks perfect.

Although I can imagine how lovely your hair must have been when it was dark ,I like your blonde hair more. :)

I really like both on you - and the blonde is awesome because dyed blonde hair at that length? In such great condition?! Pretty amazing... but I've always loved dark hair too... I'd have dark hair myself if I could be bothered with colouring it!

I´d say blonde. It is very striking, and also your hair looks healthy and shiny although it has been bleached. Enjoy the fact it takes such harsh treatment!

mzBANGBANG
January 31st, 2012, 01:54 PM
The blonde is so striking, I love it. The natural looks wonderful, too, but I prefer the blonde because it is unique. I also loved your pics where you had the blonde streaks, personally my favorite look of yours :flowers:

ladonna
January 31st, 2012, 04:49 PM
I don't really know what you're personality is like like, but to me you seem like a bright bubbly energetic person so I think the blond suits my assumption of your personality. I like the brown too, it just doesn't make you shine as much as blond. IMO

nakmom
January 31st, 2012, 05:27 PM
You pull off both very well and you have AMAZING hair regardless, but I really like brunette on you :flowers:

You really do have such beautiful hair :crush:

January 31st, 2012, 05:34 PM
You look fantastical with both hair colors my friend but I have to say I prefer you as a blonde.
I'm usually more drawn to the natural look but not always. Don't get me wrong you look great with brown hair BUT I think you look so bada#$ and exotic with blonde hair.

Gingerbear

I love the look of both. The dark is very classic, but the blonde is stunning.

Personally I prefer the way brunette looks on you but I admit that the blonde is more striking, particularly since it is unusual to see colored hair that is so long and healthy. Either way, you look amazing!

bumblebums
January 31st, 2012, 07:57 PM
The blond hair is really head-turning, so I vote for blond. It is hard to bleach dark hair without destroying it in the process, so it's all the more striking for its good condition.

January 31st, 2012, 08:08 PM
You look good as a brunette, but you look super cool with the blonde. Blonde Asians for the win, man. You can totally pull it off.

beachgirlla
January 31st, 2012, 08:21 PM
Eric, is the blond hair is your actual hair!!, I thought it was extensions or a wig, to me the back looks like very shiny like the hair extensions I used to get, LOL and the bang is not as shiny, if the blond is your actual hair then wow how could you make it so long, I can't tell from these pics if this is a real hair or wig/extensions, can't believe that some people have very strong hair pull off a very long bleached blond hair like this with so much shine, wow I'm so jealous :)

alyanna
January 31st, 2012, 08:33 PM
Actually, I'd really like to see you in a shade of rich brown, like that chocolate brown that was kind of "in" last season? It might be too soft a look, but would probably make your cheeks rosy.

Between the pictures you posted, it's really hard to choose actually! You look pretty awesome either way. I would pick blonde just because it's different and stands out and says, I've Got Character ;)

marena

Well, it's really hard to say when comparing the two!

I love the blonde because it's so healthy and shiny (which is unusual for a lot of people who lighten their hair so significantly) and it really stands out against your features! I think I really admire it because it's so long and gorgeous and I know my hair would be WRECKED beyond belief if I tried to have it so long and blonde :D.

BUT, the dark hair also suits you perfectly... I guess cause it's your own ;).

I prefer brounette because it looks more natural - and I personally think that nature knows what she's doing when she chooses a particular skin+eyes+hair combo ;)

But I also like you as a blonde :) That said I sometimes totally swoon over people with unatural haircolor - but tend to prefer natural colour. And no makeup :)

And my type is Karina Lombard :)

I have to disagree. There are turtles that are born with two heads, conjoined twins, and people who are unfortunately born with all kinds of terminal genetic diseases which make their lives very painful, and will eventually kill them. Nature is a total freak. If anything, the advances in human technology have improved the lives of humans around the planet for the better. If we had left things to nature, we would still be running around naked, eating cold, uncooked food, and many of us would have died very young because there would be no medicine.

The problem with the blonde is that it isn't a nice shade; it's very orange and unflattering.

If it were a better shade of blonde fine; if not, definitely go with brown. That's my honest opinion.

I think the blonde makes you look more special/different and you definitely stand out the crowd with it but the brown makes you look more natural and relaxed and simple. Both are beautiful on you, I think the color is not so important because basically, you have beautiful hair - no matter the colour.

Celtic Morla

I love the blonde and the brunette with blonde streaks. Straight up dark hair was pretty, but I don't think you're going for merely pretty, I think you're going for magic. And that's pretty much what you have with the blonde, sheets of gold flying behind you.

I like brunette, it suits you better. Blonde is good, but darker looks better on you. Maybe light brown will give you intersting kind of look?

Either way, your hair is awesome and you look fine with blonde or brunette.

I love the blonde on you as its like liquid gold and it reflects your personality well but then the dark is gorgeous too. You know what you could rock any colour, your hair is in such excellent health and as you know im insanely jealous of your hair its perfect in every way, in which any colour you choose!

Well, you are definitely not a turtle with two heads, and, among things that are results of Mmme Nature's hangovers we have beautiful butterflies, sunsets, full moons, kittens, horses, tropical rainforests etc...

Many cures for all ills had been found by humans - in nature as well...

so: I still go by my thought and politely disagree :)))

Anyway, you know what you want - that's beautiful, the hair can change colours like a rainbow, but it's what's underneath that decides on the overall atractivness of a persona - for me that is ;)

I like the brunette better just because it reminds me of my best friend. He's asian and has super long hair too, but it's more 1c/2b
Of course I like the blonde too, and I'm jealous bleaching doesn't damage yours as much as it did mine hehe.

CurlyCap
February 3rd, 2012, 01:24 AM
Go RED! Hee hee :D

Anyway, I prefer the black. Mostly because you have perfect "Asian" hair. It's shiny, thick with thick (coarse?) strands. I LOVE it. You have a photo in one of your albums where you have your hair in a bin topknot and I was totally :thud: over it. It looked so regal.

I'm still thinking about your blonde hair. I think if I saw it in a wig shop, I'd go "OMG. PRETTY COLOR". Thing is, I don't know if it's the best color for you. I'm trying to determine if I'm just biased towards seeing dark features with dark hair and therefore my brain is confuzzled or whether I genuinely think there's a color match problem. I know I wouldn't say go lighter. (Or maybe you should. Totally Storm white with gold highlights. God, I'm crazy.)

I will say that if I could dip your hair in any color hair dye I wanted (and thereby make you my lifesize Man Barbie), I'd make it red brown and shinier than sin. You'd probably look like something out of a vampire movie, but it would be HOT.

As long as you put both Robert Pattinson and Alexander Skarsgard in that same movie starring as my vampire lovers, I will let you shave my head if you wanted to!

Your hair is beautiful, and you look great with it either color. :cheese:

For me, Eric, I'd have to say the dark brunette, as I've always longed to have that colour myself and think it looks stunning. I'm naturally blonde, and it has taken me a while to love my colour as much as dark, dark hair......that being said, you pull off the blonde well too, but I have a place in my heart for the rich bitter chocolate dark tones of hair ;)

Brunette, but I'm partial to brunettes :) You look great either way!

I have to admit, I'm actually surprised at how many people do in fact like me better as a blonde. I clearly love blonde myself, but I know this is LHC where the general attitude is all for natural. Thanks everyone who gave me compliments on my blonde color!

I think if it comes down to which one is better, I would have to pick your natural. The main reason is that I remember how super-crazy shiny it was and that when I saw it, that was the thing that made me end up joining LHC in the first place. Looks wise it did also make you look boyish which I think is a good look. However, in the end the best hair color is the one that makes you happiest and you like to play around with. I think with the blonde hair, the lighter golden with platinum suits your skin well.

I like them both. I think the blonde brings out the gold in your skin tone, and the brunette looks more natural. Personally, I like the fashion shoot you did with red, bleach, and brunette streaks. That was awesome! :cool:

Ah, but for me, it wasnt' a natural vs non-natural question, I'd have gone for dark hair even if it had been the dyed one!!

I have a question for you, Eric - you clearly prefer blonde at the moment, but can you see more experimenting ahead with your hair colour? I have spent the last 12 ish years as a dyed brunette, and am recently going back to my natural blonde (although I can't promise there won't be some highlights :eyebrows:), I never thought I'd get tired of being brunette but :shrug: I just did.....so what next after blonde? Is there any other shade you'd like? I too thought that the red looked pretty darn awesome on you too, I think you are one of these lucky folks who can wear a lot of colours and still look great :)

I just love blonde hair. If I could have had a conversation with God before I was born, I would have asked Him to please grant me beautiful Nordic blonde hair. And also blue eyes that are the color of the ocean.

I totally get that. For years I would have asked God to make me Snow White, with pale skin and dark, dark hair....but being female I've changed my mind lately, and am looking forward to having some blonde in my life again myself ;).....good thing you rock all colours! And the beauty of hair, as I've seen you say somewhere, is that it is such a canvas that you can, these days, imprint whatever you like on :D

Well I'm a guy, and men who are pale skinned with dark hair look like dead people to me.

Maybe I'm a tad shallow, but I really am attracted to the Hollywood celebrity look. I love Nordic blonde hair, piercing blue eyes, and tanned skin.

I like the dark with blonde highlights on you :) but if I had to chose one.... I guess dark but I really like you with highlights at least! It looks perfect.

I honestly think that dark hair with highlights went out of fashion about 2 years ago. I'm seeing that the ombre look is very trendy now. But blonde will definitely always be a very popular hair color.


Although I can imagine how lovely your hair must have been when it was dark ,I like your blonde hair more. :)

Thank you so much. :blossom:

The blonde is so striking, I love it. The natural looks wonderful, too, but I prefer the blonde because it is unique. I also loved your pics where you had the blonde streaks, personally my favorite look of yours :flowers:

Thank you so much. :blossom:

Oh and by the way, I LOVE your username. :eyebrows:

I'm usually all up fpr brunettes, but your blonde hair has a uniqueness to it. I think it's because it's such a rare sight to see such blonde, pretty, long AND healthy hair at the same time ^^
But you definitely look good either way :)

Good thing I actually like that look - I'm one of them dead people. Even my brother has made that joke often :p
I don't think you're shallow, though, it's just a matter of preference :)

Both colors look really good on you, but I actually think something in between would be really lovely too, like a warm toned chocolate or caramel brown that's not too dark. =)

I do like the blonde as well, because it is unique and compliments your complexion as well, but my favourite is the brunette...
