Colour Q: Are You More Confident With a More Noticeable Hair Hue? + FREE Stuff!

SPONSORED I've been thinking about a "what does your type of hair colour say about you" thing. As in, between a woman who commits to shiny, noticeable hair colour and a woman who prefers glossy, subtly enhanced tones that bow out on schedule, does the committed-colour dame have more confidence?

Let's look at it in terms of colour. It might take hella-hutzpah to pull off a look-at-me hair colour like red, right? It's a statement colour after all.

But really, isn't it about what makes you feel good? If medium golden brown makes you feel glorious, how are you less confident than the woman who feels fabulous with red hair?

Seems to me that whether you prefer to commit to a permanent vibrant shade or appreciate a colour's subtle, no-roots nature depends on other factors. For instance, I'm in the subtle enhancement camp, and would rather let colour gradually wash away than manage colour regrowth. But other friends who dye like the long-last, vibrant nature of permanent colour and manage their roots easily.

Either way, my theory about hair colour in general is a bit like my theory about lipstick. If you try something new – a more noticeable, vibrant shade in place of natural, or natural instead of more vibrant and noticeable -- and the results elicit endless compliments from friends, family, co-workers and Twitterverse friends, you win.
