I'm a little apprehensive as I've just taken the plunge to go back to my roots. I've spent many years as a blonde as my work is mainly in the glamour sector and I'm
aware that specific genre is one in which blondes Thrive. I've actually even lost a couple of jobs after informing people I've recently gone brunette . I've just uploaded a couple of new images. Please let me know what you think. Pass me the peroxide lol

I'm feeling a little apprehensive as I've recently taken the lounge and gone back to my roots. I've spent many years as a blonde as most of my work is within the glamour sector and I'm aware that blondes thrive within the glamour industry. In fact I've even lost a couple of jobs after informing clients that I've gone brunette . I've just uploaded a few recent shots, please give me your honest opinions. Pass me the peroxide lol.

You are still a cut above, but as a blonde, you are awesome.
My thoughts

I think I prefer you as a Brunette, it makes you look more sophisticated and classy IMO

You look more stunning and sophisticated as a brunette and to me it suits you better
Although you do need to change this on your profile **PLEASE NOTE: My hair is currently blonde** good luck x

Better than blonde but I really think Red would suit you better than either.

I'm guessing due to your skin colour...but both suit you...now you need to decide if the colour change is for work or just for you....Whatever you do, don't go for one of those "alt" shades, like bright red, pink, blue etc.


Just noticed, you've got tiny ankles...cool.

Personally I think you look better brunette. You have quite dark "olive" skin and I think peroxide blonde is really pushing your luck with your complexion. You are going against nature and it will look unnatural.

If you are not constantly keeping on top of your roots you won't look good. To me, very blonde with dark roots just looks tacky.

It is such a shame that some photographers have this fixation that glamour models should be blonde. Remember though that you are competing against a lot of younger bottle blonde girls. So it might be better to be different. You are not a girl, you are 100% woman. Don't grab the peroxide just yet!
As in life, so in a game of hazard, skill will make something of the worst of throws.
