    Question What color is this? Hmmm...

    EDITED

    With my roots sticking out of my turbie today at a decent length, I was finally able to get a good glimpse at my natural hair color. Only now I'm not sure what color it is.




    Indoor lighting




    Indoor lighting





    And in natural lighting:


    Ideas?

    The best way to examine hair's natural color is to take a picture outside in natural light, or indoors in natural light. Otherwise its a bit hard to tell because of indoor lighting.

    Looks blonette to me, but it's hard to tell from roots. My roots looked gray against black dye, and just a couple shades lighter, but my hair is a warm medium brown

    (also tbh I fancy myself that it's light auburn/chestnut, and have recently been told by the first person ever minus mom and bf that they think my hair is chestnut! ) So if you think about something long enough it may become true

    Lucky! I'd love to have brown hair. If this doesn't work out I might do a wash out every so often lol

    To me, it looks like a medium golden blonde.

    Yep, blonette, a little on the lighter side.

    I think this is what we (my culture) would call "dirty blonde". My sister has that color of hair.

    I call that blond, but some people only consider hair to be blond if it's super-bright. Tends to depend on person and culture. "Tawny" is a popular term on here, for all the people who are in that in-between color zone. If nothing else, it's far less negative-sounding than "dirty" or "dishwater".

    Ash/Neutral blonde, I'd say.
