I want to try something new and different but I'm scared. I am the same complexion as the girl on the far right, and I want the blue hair color. Maybe the bottom layer instead of my entire head. Your thoughts? What would your first impression be if you saw a girl with this blue hair?

Meh... I mean I love wild and crazy hair colors but I've never seen anyone who looked good with an entire head of hair of that color. I find (and my boyfriend adds that he agrees with this) highlights of that color, or sections of different colors look amazing but a whole head just looks stupid and too much. You need to be careful, especially at 18-24 because you need to be taken seriously both for jobs and school and all kinds of stuff.
This is going to sound really racist but I honestly don't mean it that way if you really are black, (which is what you suggest by saying your complexion is like the girl in the picture's) you need every bonus you can get. Several studies have shown that, especially when applying for a job, white people are far favored over blacks, even if they have equal qualifications. And if someone has a "black" sounding name their resume is more likely to be tossed aside even if it is the strongest on in the group.
So basically, don't go dying your whole head some crazy color because it's just going to make everything a lot tougher for you. Stereotyping, discrimination.. it's just one more reason for people to not take you seriously... Your age, your hair color your sex your race.. There's all kinds of hate in this world. I love that you want to join the ranks of awesome people with awesome colored hair but keep it subtle and stylish.3
