It's That Time Again

Okay, it's that time again - hair cut and color. And I want to be adventurous but I always chicken out. Will I this time?

I've had my hair red for a good 15+ years, is it time for a change?

Here I am now -



I used a virtual make-over program to "try on" different styles and colors. Here's the base:



Here are my top picks -









Any thoughts? I was considering much darker brown/black than these but the program was not letting me make it that dark. I also did a TON of other ones and put them up on Flickr here.
Help me!!!

I like your first pick, or maybe a chin length style. I think styles with some or all of the hair cut around chin length really flatter your face.

Haha- so cool!! I like the last one... very big change but could be great ;)

I am a redhead and therefore biased, but I think you should keep the red and just go deeper--so I like #1.

Premise: I think red suits you well, especially with your fair complexion.

A part from that, I quite like two (very different!) styles among the ones you've tried:
the "Kirsten Dunst", because is relaxed and that kind of warm blonde goes beautifully with your eyes, and the "Dark With Bangs", 'cause I like very dark hair with light skin. Actually, I think this one is really nice.
My only concerns are:
1- what about the eyebrows?
2- if you're not satisfied with the colour/get bored with it, the black is reeeally hard to wash away..!

PS: the "Drew Barrymore -dark": not bad either!

With your skin tone and eye color, I think the darkest you should go is a chocolate brown. Black would wash you out, and because red suits you, chocolate brown or a reddish brown would be best for color. Cut-wise, a side-swept bang with face-framing layers would look lovely, and shoulder length would be best for the face shape. Rachel Boston cut looks the nicest, in my opinion. Good luck! You'll look fab whatever you choose :)

I like the cut and color in your "now" picture. But the color in the last picture would be great for you as well!

I am kind of partial to the Christina Ricci one!

I kinda like the Cristina Ricci one too. But as you know I adore your hair color now. I do love the 1st color and cut that you showed. It really looks good on you. Let us know what you decide.
