I'm naturally a dirty blond. I've dyed my hair a purpley-plum color, various shades of red, and dark brown. I think I look great as a redhead and it actually looks like a more natural color on me than my real hair color, just because of my eyes and skin tone.
I usually like to use 2-3 colors at once. When your using browns it gives really pretty natural sun kissed looks or just really pretty mixtures. Blonds in adds color and individuality to each person. Bright colors like green, red, and orange look great and stand out better when mixed.
Right now I'm blond with pink bangs. I used to do green and black streaks. When I'm not in my f the world punk moods I usually do burgundy Cuzco I have green eyes contrast is awesome with hair as long as you do it right. Think about your skin tone and eye color otherwise you might wind up looking funny
When I was a kid, I dyed my hair blond once and another time I tried to get orange, but it turned out reddish brown. Recently I've only dyed darker shade of brown than I have couple times and during the last year I've had no reason to do anything like that since my hair has been about quarter inch long :D
