Help! Got my hair colored. Should I keep it or not?

Went to get my hair colored. Wanted a caramal brown with some red. Here is a before and after pic and the Kelly Bensimon pic I showed the girl to go off of. My color looks nothing like the pic but I'm thinking I might keep what I ended up with. Honest opinions please. Does it wash me out? Should I go and get more caramel in it?



Deer in headlights!!! lol

Wow that color is not even close to the pic you gave, lol. I do think the darker hair suits you better than the blonde, though. It really brings out your eyes, and it does not wash you out at all. I actually thought the blonde washed you out a little.

Yeah, I didn't go to the place I normally go to. My hair stylest had a baby and only works 2 days a week now and it's never when I'm available. This chick today was new and obviously had no clue lol. I think I just need to get used to it. I'm so used to being blonde.

Thanks for the compliments everyone!

^ Thank you! It looks much shinier in the pictures from the flash. Should I get some highlights in it to give it some dimension? I like it better in pictures than person. I feel like it's kind of dull in person.

The color looks amazing on you Lynne! Highlights would be pretty too, but certainly not a necessity IMO

You look great Lynne! I agree with BabyJ on blonde colour which you used to have. Highlights would look great on this colour, imho one pretty woman

I think the color you got suits you very well and you are GORGEOUS!! I have to admit I like the color you got more than what you wanted.

I really like the dark hair better than blond actually Like others said, your eyes really stand out now! The color you initially wanted, I don't like and don't think it would have suited you.

I think you should wait awhile to get highlights. I like it the way it is, but I think you should get used to it before you change it more/again.

you do look a bit like Kyra Sedgwick

I love the brown and I second Jess on waiting a bit if you decide to get highlights or change it again! It takes a while to get used to seeing yourself with a completely new hair color, especially with such a drastic change! I LOVE the brown on you, especially for fall/winter!
