    I think you would look good with red highlights. Maybe medium to lighter red. They'd look pretty with your skin and green eyes.

    I think a caramel color would look really nice :) You are beautiful btw!!

    I second what Ninja says!
    Wurly, fine, thin, moderately to heavily porous. Mod CG.

    thanks thats so nice of you! ! i was thinking a caramel color i just worry my hair will look really dry but im getting a keratin treatment so maybe that will help with the dryness

    Going caramel would only require you to slightly break your base.. Wouldn't need to leave the bleach on long so it wont dry you out too bad. If you highlight, request an oil based bleach, as it keeps your hair moist during processing :)

    Something to keep in mind when you go to get your highlights is the fact that they are likely to get lighter especially during these sunny summer months when you tend to spend more time outdoors (and in the sun). Your stylist can always tone them if necessary though.

    thanks for all your feedback:happy11:

    and ended up doing a rich auburn brown with caramel highlights and i really love it! i decided to highlight gradually so it wouldnt be such a drastic change and i will be adding more highlights in a couple of months :icon_smile:
