Highlights: Yay or Nay?

I've been dying for a change but too scared to actually chop my hair super short (a la posh spice). I think my face/cheeks are too fat for it. So I spent three hours in the salon today on my day off getting highlights put in. I wanted subtle brown highlights. They ended up brown but I am not sure that they are subtle. Husband and BFF like the new hair style but I'm still not sure. It looks different in natural light and in indoor light (looks crazy bright to me indoors).

What do you think? Keep in mind in the pre-picture I was wearing make-up, all dressed up and it was taken by a non camera phone.



Looks super blonde/light brown here!



  1. I LIKE!! I think its still subtle enough and the color is really nice! you look goos dudesy! :)

  2. I usually don't like highlights on black hair but I think yours turned out gorgeous! It looks very natural and you look so sophisticated. And don't worry about it being too light — you'll get used to it after a couple of days.

  3. I love it! I think it's perfectly cheery and sunny during this cold, dreary winter, and it doesn't look unnatural at all. You wear it well, my dear :-)

  4. You look gorgeous! Love the highlights on you!

  5. I say yay - I like them. And for the record, I think you'd look pretty fab in a short 'do too.
