    Thumbs up Auburn Pride!

    So xoxophelia started a fun thread for those whose colour isn't brown and isn't blonde, and I thought we could do with a thread for those of us who have a no-man's-land colour between brown and red.

    We aren't true redheads -- but we aren't brunettes either! You might call your hair auburn, or copper, or chestnut, or titian. You might consider your hair to be a brown that happens to be reddish, or a red that happens to be brownish. But as ambiguous as it may be, it is beautiful!

    I'm apparently ginger enough that people decided to hug me on "hug a ginger" day, but my hair looks brown in photos. I've been told "your hair isn't red -- it's definitely brown" just as firmly as I've been told the exact opposite! Those who feel they fit into this group, please come and share your photos and stories and PRIDE in this colour here

    my hair looking extremely brown ...


    my hair in more natural lighting ...


    definitely redder on my damaged ends than my healthy roots ...


    and apologies for very drunken, very unflattering photo. But this is the only photo-with-flash I have right now ...


    (I actually have a photo-with-flash where it turned out a BRIGHT orange colour, but I can't find it!)

    Who wants to join in? Please, like the blonette thread, no bashing this colour.
    don't know whether your hair is brown or red? us neither!

    Pretty hair ladies! I have also had people call me redhead (which I think is just wishful thinking on their part!!! .. i swear some people are more color blind than they realize)

    I am definitely not auburn but it is a pretty color that dye boxes seem to have issues getting right.

    I'm a dark auburn
    Definitely not a ginger auburn, more like burnished copper appliance auburn.
    I do henna glosses now, so it's far more prevalent than it naturally would be (at least in the sunlight, inside, it looks identical to how it looked before I started the glosses.)
    C'mon, GROW!

    Just stopping by to say that your gorgeous natural hair colors are the reason why I henna.

    Sign me in! I've always called my hair 'auburn'. It's not red (I wish!), but I don't want to call it just 'brown' either, because it does have red highlights! I've henna'ed twice over it because I really want redder hair, but I haven't got it nearly as red as I would like, so more experiments will soon follow. I like my auburn hair, though, I just want to experiment with more red highlights for a while
    My hair-colour... It could be called a medium brown with reddish highlights overall, but it varies a lot from roots to ends. At the roots, it's a darker brown with red highlights and a lot of blonde hair at my temples (yes, that's right). It gets a lighter medium brown down the length with highlights that are more coppery-blonde than true red and at the roots it's light brown with a lot of golden-copper highlights.

    Some pics to illustrate my multiple-shaded auburn hair :


    This is how my hair-colour looks indoors, more or less (with flash in this case). The copper highlights are much more obvious lit up by the Sun.





    Coppery highlights under sunlight...In different angles or under evening sunlight it can look a bit redder. Indoors (especially at night) my hair can look really dark, though, dark brown even...Even with henna.


    Natural colour under full sunlight...It can look redder depending on the angle, and the lighting.

    I love your auburn hair, freckles! You're absolutely right, auburn hair's gorgeous! I think it's great how it looks redder in some photos, and then browner in others. Only, the red-hair-lover in me often wishes for 100% red hair ! But that's not bashing the colour at all .

    Totally! Depending on the lighting my red tones come out or don't.

    In the sun I look reddish:



    In most pics and inside I look almost deep brown. Sorry about my weird pose.



    I would love more red like our baby:



    But I'm finally learning to love my own hair.
