Inspiration: Summer Hair

I've kept my brunette locks pretty much the same for years. This summer, I'm thinking of changing it up. Nothing dramatic, just lightening my hair a little. Possibly giving it a brighter, more golden hue for summer. My hair lightens up in the summer sun, but I figure I'd help give it a helping hand.
 
The only thing is I haven't dyed my hair in forever, so if you have any tips on doing it at home I'd love to hear them!


Are you changing your hair this summer?

  1. I dye my hair at home, but I don't have any tips, sadly... I'm really bad at it :S But it's easy when you're dyeing dark hair dark. I think you'll look great with your hair lightened up a bit, but maybe enlist a friend to help? Two sets of hands is always better than one!

  2. I think it's nice to lighten your hair during the summer, that's what I did!

    I would not recommend lightening your hair by yourself, darkening is easy, but I would go get that professionally done, and the results turn out so much better. You can ask for outer highlights :)
    Can't wait to see how it turns out! xx

  4. I love the look of sun-kissed hair for summer. If there's ever a time to do pretty, natural highlights, it's now! I lightened up my hair a little bit for summer, which is a big change for me. I never really dye it!

  5. i have noticed people are dying their hair a little lighter for summer. i tried using a box of blonde hair dye (not bleach) to dye my hair once. since my hair is naturally dark i left it on for TWICE the time it said and it barely lightened my hair. I don't want to tell you to buy platinum blonde dye or anything because I don't want to be responsible if you hate it :-P but i just wanted to let you know that its hard to lighten brown hair.

    1. That's a great point! But I don't want to go too much lighter. Guess we'll see what happens! lol

  7. I've been thinking a lot about changing things up this summer as well. I want a little bit messy and shorter, like the photo you have of Jessica Alba.

  10. I love the idea of changing up your hair for the seasons - I actually just cut mine about 2 inches (which doesn't seem like a lot) - but it feels like a big change :)

  11. I think you would look great with lighter locks. Sometimes I wish I could go with a hair color this light.
