Video Update


Hello There!
As you can tell from the video, I got my hair done. And it's dark. Realllllly dark! 
Not really what I was expecting, but I'm trying to get used to it. 
I might go and get it done again, but I really don't want to damage it. 
So I might just let it fade out. Anywho, just talking about some new products 
and what not in the video.

Love your blog! I'm addicted... And I liked your hair lighter, but as a blonde I feel that my bias is for blondes... Good luck with your hair, it's the most frustrating thing to not like your hair color..

Kelly said...

Let it fade out!! If there is time before your wedding I think it's going to fade out. You don't want to keep damaging it with hair chemicals. I've always liked darker hair color so I like this it makes your features stand out. Plus as long as your FIANCE likes it, then keep it!

while i liked your sun-kissed ombre hair, i really also like the dark hair on you. with that being said...wedding day hair is HUGE. these will be the pictures you look at for the rest of your life so YOU have to love it. if it were me, i would let it fade naturally instead of lifting the color again.

loving that new lipstick too!

Your hair looks really good. You're right, it is dark, been there before, but you'll get used to it. I agree with the other comment about letting it fade out. Your hair looks very healthy and getting it done soon after might damage it, but I'm sure the salon will use extra conditioner to prevent damage.Happy Valentine's Day!

I love your hair! It will definitely get lighter after a few shampoos :) happy valentines day!

Emma said...

I loooove your hair this dark! Your beautiful features stand out so much more than with blonde hair-although that was beautiful also. But I love the pale skin darker hair with red lips look! It's so Scarlett Johansen and gorgeous!

Ava said...

I looooove the dark hair! It looks so pretty!

nastianem said...

Hi Julia!)) Like the red lipstick!and would love a lip&hair product video or post from you too)) As for the dark hair, due to my own experience,oil treatments take out the colour,for example try dr.hauschka neem oil (coconut oil,argan),distribute all over your hair for a couple hours with a towel on top(for heat)or overnight,and wash it out,1-2 times a week,really helped me wash out the dark to a much lighter color in a month with no damage to my hair,hope this helps!xo-nasty2night

nastianem said...

almost forgot!claryfing shampoos stip the dark colour out aswell!Hope all works out for you,I know how frustrating it feels to not have what you want/expected:)) hope you had a great valentines day.

Myrna said...

Julia I love the dark hair and you are so right it looks so fab with that lip color! Bummer your outfit posts will be toning down a bit :( but videos ate great too !

I love your hair!! I think it looks great!! you should let it fade out and if you decide you don't like how it looks maybe you can color it like a month before your wedding! but just give it a try for a couple of months and maybe with the sun it will get a little lighter!

Kathleen said...

I think your hair looks really great! It reminds me of Ashley Greene with the makeup/eyes. But I know what you mean about not feeling like yourself, since it was a big change from the blonde. How far is your wedding? I think since you already colored it a few times, you could prob wait a bit for it to fade. I read Jennifer Lawrence's hairstylist told her to use stripping shampoos, which faded her hair nicely from the dark it was for filming the hunger games...http://news.instyle.com/2012/01/25/jennifer-lawrence-red-hair/

Natali said...

You look wonderful with the new hair!!

danica said...

Your hair is definitely a lot darker than it was...but I think it looks really pretty! The darker hair also makes your eye color stand out a lot more. I'd say hold off on dying your hair, just so it doesn't get too damaged. Hope you had a great Valentine's Day! :)

La Petite Olga said...

Wow what a change! But I think you look great with this dark hair color.
Before my wedding my hairdresser didn't allow me to do anything with my hair just tiny trimm of my ends and thats it.

Becoming Refined said...

Keep the dark for a little while, it makes your eyes pop and highlights the beautiful bone structure in your face. Something new does take time to get used to but I hope you can come to find this change as something positive.

GOOD GOD! You are absolutely gorgeous no matter what color your hair is. However, I MUST say that I LOVE it dark. I am so envious, I wish I could pull off that dark color. I promise you, it looks amazing!

Along Abbey Road said...

Of course you look amazing with any hair color. The dark looks great, but my honest opinion? I like your hair lighter. I think the lighter shades amplify your pretty skin tone and eyes, especially in pictures!

Don't worry, it will fade. I say give it a couple of weeks. You'll like it more once it fades out. And if you decide you don't like it, the good news is you can always change it!

Amy @ Amy Day to Day said...

I think your hair looks fantastic this dark. It really brings out your blue eyes and makes them POP. I actually think lighter hair can wash people out, but this hair color really makes all your features stand out. Keep it for a while and get used to it before you make any decisions.

Aurélie Marteau said...

(Sorry for my english... i'm french..^^) You are beautiful, don't worry! but it's true, dark hair harden your face... You should try anti-dandruff shampoo like Head and Shoulder menthol, more fast to fade your color ;)

Cortnie Dyann said...

I love your hair dark!!! Very flattering shade on you. I went dark a year and a half ago and it took about 3 months to get used to and as you put it not feel like I was wearing a wig. Let it fade a bit and see if you can get used to it!! xx

Chelsea Rose said...

I honestly LOVE the dark color too! You are gorgeous and I agree that it really brings out your eyes and makes them really shine. :)

Sarah said...

I really like dark hair on you, I think it's so flattering and a nice change!

That's probably TOTALLY not what you were expecting, but I actually think you look great with dark hair. It's very Olivia Wilde or Megan Fox. But you poor girl! I hope you're giving your hairstylist a piece of your mind!

I love dark hair on you :) x

Janell said...

Julia, you are one of those rare people that any hair color looks lovely on. I mean that! I know the dark color probably looks so strange to you with the shock of going from golden to chocolate but honestly it looks great on you. Your skin tone is complimented by it. If I were you I would let it fade on its own instead of damaging it with stripping the color out. You definatley want your hair to be looking healthy for your wedding and not damaged. As the color fades a little you will get used to it. XO- Janell

Kimberly said...

I actually love the dark hair on you - it makes your eyes pop even more! But I know when I first when brunette after being blonde for 10 years, it was quite the shock! :)

Elissa said...

I love your hair! I know you might not like it immediately, but you've had it done so many times recently that you really shouldn't get it "stripped." I had my hair your color once and my mom hated it so much she asked me to get it stripped, which I did, and the results were awful after that. Maybe it was just my salon/hairdresser, but basically when they strip your hair, the hair underneath becomes kinda yellowish blonde, and when they put the new color on I swore that the yellow showed through. It was pretty ugly for a few months lol!

Josephine said...

The new color looks great! Going dark is always an adjustment and is hard to get used to, but it honestly looks gorg!!

I love the darker color. It looks great with your skin tone and really makes your eyes pop. I purposely dye mine darker and it fades after a few washes. Hang in there!

Katie @ My Darling Days said...

Ohh hun I LOVE your dark hair! Looks so natural and makes your eyes POP! Classy and polished, I love it! Don't let it fade!!! :)

seewhatlindseyloves said...

You seem so unsure about your hair! Honestly, it looks great and it really brings out your eye color. Let it fade out a bit and see how you like it, but then maybe go lighter for the wedding.

ewilroy said...

ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS with the dark hair! Love it! Makes your eyes really pop!

Keep it for awhile, but if you feel most in your own skin with lighter hair, I'd say go back to that before your wedding -- you'll want to feel your absolute best on your big day.

I think you look absolutely gorgeous with dark hair, but it seems like the dramatic change is upsetting you. It will get lighter, and you will get used to it, but hair color is about you. If you don't love it, it doesn't matter what other people think.

I love it! In the video freeze frame, you look a bit like CoCo Rocha.

KATE said...

I recently did the same thing with my highlighted hair. At first I was really unsure because it was so much darker than I wanted it to be. But two weeks later it is fading out to a much better shade and my old highlights are softly showing through.

Cathy, your Poor Little It Girl said...

I recently went from light to (really) dark as well. While it's always a bit of an adjustment...I always think it's fun to look at something new and different in the mirror and play around with new hair styles!

doyouspeakgossip said...

You look gorgeous either way! But I preferred your hair lighter.
I think you should let the color fade a bit, which is going to happen after some baths. Don't try to dye them again, you don't want to ruin them. They are so healthy and beautiful.

Call me M @ Do You Speak Gossip?

Sisters Sincere said...

You totally pull off the darker hair color! With fairer skin and blue eyes, it looks gorgeous!

SweetTreeninGlitter said...

Julia, I LOVE your blog! I check it everyday at work :) I was a platinum blonde and just recently dyed my hair very dark. It is so hard to get used to! However, your eyes really pop with the dark, and it is very beautiful. You are so gorgeous, and I think you look beautiful both ways!

Jessica said...

Your hair color is BEAUTIFUL! It makes your eyes pop, and it looks GREAT on you! I would keep it! You're gorgeous! I love this much better than the blonde!

sgunns said...

You should keep the hair color! It will probably fade to what you want. I also love the lip color!

Allie said...

LOVE the dark hair! It makes your eyes stand out more than the blonde did!

Randolpha said...

I am a big fan of dark hair- as a former blonde I always think of going back but the dark brown has stuck... it will definitely fade. As always looking beautiful julia! Happy Valentine's Day.

Mary Ann said...

I adore your hair, don't change it! You look like Ashley Greene, for reals. Thinking of going darker too and you just inspired me. Lookin' good girl!

Sam said...

Your hair looks lovely, and it makes you look like Olivia Palermo (i.e. you look marvelous!). Don't damage your hair - just let it fade out!

Samantha said...

LoveLoveLove your hair! Give it about week to settle in, and then decide. But you look amazing! Sometimes it takes a little time to get used to seeing it in the mirror, especially with such a dramatic change! :)

Great video
I think once you wash your hair a few times, it will bring out a softer shade, but you still look awesome of course

justL said...

i think that your hair look perfect like this! i did the same two months ago. i was blonde too and i made my hair look darker and i kind of freaked out at first but then I started loving and definitely I prefer it now as before!

:)

carl and em said...

dont strip it that is so damaging on your hair. i am a cosmetologist and it really will fade so much with the blonde under it so just give it a little time before you do anything else, i think it looks SO pretty dark too!

Nicole said...

I loved the ombre hair! You are definitely my hair inspiration. I'm waiting for mine to grow out a bit so I can do the same thing!

Playful Fox and Plum Nectar said...

I LOVE the color. I can see how scary it might be to look in the mirror and not even recognize yourself.... If you let it fade I think it will turn into the color you want it to be. But for now, keep it. It makes your eyes look vibrant and it makes red lips that much more fabulous

Sarah Stern said...

I think you can pull off both dark and lighter hair but make sure you LOVE your color for your wedding day, that's for sure!

PS-Can you please share what nail polish color you are wearing? I love it!

Brittany Love said...

You'd look great in any hair color but I am loving it dark!

Kelli said...

Honestly, the dark is super cute!

TheCollegeCouture said...

I think the dark looks so pretty! It definitely makes your eyes stand out! I think maybe once you get a little color as Spring approaches, the contrast wont be as extreme :) And those flats are to die for, I can't wait to see how you style them!

Alexandra said...

I love the dark color... I say let it fade out a bit and then maybe go back in for more of a honey brown. Whatever you do DON'T strip the color out!

I feel really bad because I can see your disappointed with the way your hair looks and that is obviously such a personal preference. I don't have any advice other than do what you think works for you and what would make you happy and confident/comfortable with your hair.

I have to say IMHO I think you look absolutely stunning with darker hair (although gorgeous as a blonde too)

hannahstiff said...

The dark is chic and beautiful. It makes you stand out and it's so striking, not a generic look at all. Rock it! XO

Laura Madeline said...

Lovee the dark on you! I know it's a shocker, I've done that before too. I would say stay dark until sometime before the wedding. I think you'll want something more "you" and neutral so you won't look back and be like wow that doesn't look like me... But definitely love the dark on you!

Taylor said...

love your hair! it should fade the more you wash it !

Lindsay said...

You look amazing with dark hair! You are a lucky one to pull off both blonde and dark so well!

Jordan said...

You should keep it Julia! You look HOT girl! I think that yes, it's dark, but not too dark for your skin tone. It really, really looks great!

Hannah said...

The darker hair is definitely a big change, but I really like it!

Jilly said...

I love the dark hair on you, but for your wedding you should definitely have it the way you want! Maybe see how it fades out and then get a gloss treatment before the wedding?
Love your blog!

Frédérique said...

Don't worry!

I used to have really dark hair and after I washed it a couple of time, it became lighter. Anyway you look gorgeous, as usual :)

Continue writing on your blog, it's amazing!

Fabulously Average said...

Keep the darker color, you look great!

Nicole Fulbright said...

honestly I think the hair looks great! You just need to get used to it and fade out a bit so that it lightens up to a more natural looking shade. I dont think you want to dye it yet again and damage it any further! great video btw :)

jillian said...

i'm LOVING your hair dark!!
it makes your eyes pop big time.
i say keep it!

Julia, I can honestly say I LOVVVE your hair! Of course you looked gorgeous lighter too, but the dark is just so chic & sophisticated... I really, really love it!! My vote is to keep!! Also, you are adorable, I loved your little video!

I REALLY like your new dark hair. makes you look more grown up and sophisticated. might be nice when you start your new life as a new wife!

your hair is so pretty this color!

Alyssa Surrett said...

The dark hair color really makes your blue eyes pop! Great contrast! I used to have dark hair like yours (for years in college when I danced too at Tennessee) and in the past year I have lightened it pretty easily! It's fun to go back and forth! Why not right??

Laura Conte said...

you look stunning! going from light to dark is pretty drastic and will take time to get used to, but i think you look lovely with the darker locks and should give it a chance before you change it so soon! good luck!

Lacy in the Sky with Diapers said...

Being a hairstylist, I change my hair a lot.... I usually have your exact same ombre blondish and then go dark in the winter... I would wait a little bit longer before coloring it again... Because it was so light before it will fade really fast and the more "Virgin" hair your stylist has to work with the better... So for now enjoy your sexy dark hair... you are gorgeous!!!

mriden05 said...

love the dark hair! lightening it again so soon with compromise the health and structure of your hair, so I would definitely leave it how it is. It will fade a little in a few weeks anyway.

I loved your lipgloss so much I bought it today! It has a great color all by itself, or over lipstick. Thanks for sharing!

Love the dark hair!! Looks really good with your skin tone.

Diary of Style said...

You look great girl! I love the dark hair! I've wanted to go dark, but I'm a natural blonde, so I'm not sure how it would turn out but I love the combination of the dark hair with your blue eyes!

Anneke Hildebrand said...

It looks great dark, dont change it

Sky said...

Hey I really like the hair color, it's a nice change for winter. Sorry It didn't turn out the way you liked. But if it was me I would wait awhile before color it again, your hair needs a rest and plus the color is going to fade a bit too. Love the lips they are great

Laura said...

I really love your hair exactly how it is! You look older (in a good way - swear)! :) I love it.

I love the dark hair on you. It makes your eyes really stand out. & that lipstick looks amazing with it!

I love your hair dark! It really makes your eyes pop and makes your hair look so healthy! As someone who has gone from blonde to brown a fewww times I know it can take get some getting used to, but I think that it will warm up to you! If you do decide to go lighter than you could possibly just add a few highlights in the front of your face to make it appear lighter without ruining your hair so badly. Thats what I did last time and even 10 highlights just in the front made a huge difference!

lizzyl517 said...

I think you should go back to light hair. You're so beautiful either way.

Jane said...

The dark hair is stunning!! I hope you keep it (and start to enjoy it!) at least for a little while. :-)
