Q: I've always had trouble with my hair. I want to know which colour and cut would be flattering for my face. I recently tried blonde, and I don't think it was the most flattering colour. Before my drastic change, my hair was naturally brunette.

Deanna's natural hair colour is brunette.

I want to re-dye, but don't know what colour I should do. Thanks! — Deanna

A: Deanna, I agree with you that blonde is not necessarily the best colour for you... but it's not that bad on you; I like it. I think it is wonderful that you go to extremes to really check out your hair options.

I recommend that you have again what you have already had—brunette. I'm totally digging the longer, dark hair, and you with eyeliner. 

There is a warm tone in your hair that makes it unique, and the ends are a fraction lighter, with a more golden tone than the rest of the colour. This adds so much personality to the subtext of your hair—a subtle but effective detail. I would play this up.

I would like you to leave your hair long, with long layers to give you some movement. With your natural texture, a non-cut is the best cut for you.
