Hi Thinking of changing my hair colour from black to a more natural light brown with highlights, but wanted your views on it as not sure if it will affect my modelling due to my port being all with black hair, so i want to know what models think who have changed their hair colour and if it affected their work and how and from photographers i want to know if it would affect your choice in booking me (if you was going to). Many Thanks

Don't be silly. 

Go buy a wig or 2 and see if they suit you. Don't think you're a blonde, so brunette might work.

I got a stock of black hair dye if it dont look right i can go straight back to black, dont fancy a wig as they're itchy and unless a really good pricey one they look cheap and obvious its a wig (apart from liquid kitten on here her wigs are pretty good) but i fancy changing it for everyday not just for modelling and deffinetly not wearing a wig everyday lol hmmmm i dont know what to do as love my hair as it is but just fancy a change thanks for your comments!

you could alway get rough idea using photoshop to try different tones, colours, shades.. be happy to try a few out for you if you send me a good hair pic, they wont be a perfect rendition but they will give you an idea. You will need a pic that you have copyright otherwise i cant edit/alter it for you.

I added a couple of images to my port yesterday, model is Brooke, shot same day but two different hair colours. Seems she liked it as is now going pink!

Fist off, HIYA fellow King's Lynn-er *waves*

Lightening black hair is a bit of a chore to get it to look how you want, you can always go back to black if it goes wrong but then you're a couple of quid down and left with more hair damage, wigs are a great way to go without having to dedicate - however you look stunning with black hair! xx
