Guys, the difference between natural blond hair, and hair that's dyed blonde?

Okay, so I recently overheard a guy say that there are too many girls with blond hair today. So, do you agree with this?

Also, do you like the way naturally blond hair looks over dyed blond hair, if you can tell?

Thanks! :)

  • I think fake blondes are ruining things for the natural blondes, personally.

    Natural blond is beautiful like any other color. But once word got out that men approach blondes more, all kinds of girls started conforming to the new "blonde standard".

    So to me, if you have fake blond hair, it kinda shows a bit of insecurity or conformity on your part. This effect doubles if you hit the tanning bed. And I'm not the only one who thinks like this:

    When they actually did a study, they found that while blondes were approached more often, the men approaching them were extremely picky about their personalities, compared to darker shades. You'll be hit on more, but people will be more judgmental of you.

  • I like blond hair but if it just looks bleached, like it's ridiculous how unnatural their bleached hair looks, it's not good. I'd prefer you just keep your hair color but if you are going to dye it, at least dye it in a way that it doesn't look like you dyed it (certain colors it's impossible for it to look "natural" since hair is never that color but it can still look good, it just has to be done well)

  • different people suit different styles.

    Personally I find that highlights have a much better result than completely dyed hair, to me it just makes it look like the hair has so much more depth, volume etc. Just looks nicer imo.

  • Blonde hair just looks odd on humans.

    I like when girls who are natural blond dye their hair brunette.

    It makes such a nice, even tone.

    • Why? Millions upon millions of men like our hair as it is. If you don't like blond hair, that's fine, but you have no right to be saying we're somehow inhuman if we won't dye our hair to your color. You sound racist.

    • v took his comment too personal...

    • vvv Right? vvv

  • I disagree. I like blond hair. I do like other hair colors too, by the way.

    C. I don't care if it's dyed or natural, it looks good either way.

  • I prefer natural blond. Girls with light hair can dye it blond. But the darker hairtones should stay away from dying blond, it just doesn't look good.

    Especially on Asians and Africans, it just doesn't fit.

  • In this part of the world I often see Asian blondes and they look kind of cute:)

    Anyway for those that do not know Russians have many ethnic mixes many of them exhibit strong Asian features yet they are natural blondes

    • Blond hair originates from Slavs, and we are Eurasian. I'd wager most people lacking an Asian touch with blond hair are not naturally blond. ;)

    • VVVV I had no idea! I was naturally blond when I was born and it has gotten darker to a dirty blond now, I'm 23. I'm Czech and people always say I have exotic/asian-like eyes. If that's true, your eurasian comment makes complete sense! I just looked it up. interesting.

  • And personally I prefer Brunettes :)

  • That number of blondes I see is fine. It seems like there is too many in ads, tv, and movies compared to the number in real life. I really can't tell the diference most of the time. I would prefer natural because it's there real hair color.

  • dyed blond hair usually doesn't have the shine of natural blond hair unless its really well done and well taken care of and guys usually like sun bleached hair instead of dyed hair if your thinking of dying it

  • I don't think there are too many. Some just look better blond. Take Jessica Alba for instance, looks great blond. Sarah Michelle Gellar too.

    Natural vs dyed I usually can't tell.

  • I was born blond, as blond as my hair is in my pictures, but over time, I got darker (you can tell by my eyebrows) I lost my blond when I was 15. That's 15 years of being blond. So I dye it. Because I don't look good dark. I figure, as long as you can pull the look off, you should be good. If you don't look good dyed blond, then don't do it.

    • Same here! I dye it or highlight it because I used to be blond and now I'm ash/dirty blond. The best part of being the ash blond is that I can pull off any color out there. I can go platinum to dark rich brown and even to a red. I've tried them all and my eyebrows just seem universal since they are ash colored add a little filler for when I go darker. anyways... I agree. and I love my blonde!

  • Sometimes you really can't tell if the persons hair is dyed or not because the color goes with them so well.

    Usually a easy way to tell is, by their eyebrows or if you see their roots coming in.

    But if its a very un-natural looking color like this

    then its very easy to tell.

  • Anyone who thinks naturally blond and bottle blond are difficult to tell apart has not seen a natural blond. Our hair looks nothing like what you can get out of a bottle.

    Seeing as blond, by nature, is very rare, no. There is no way the guys you overhead were talking about natural blond hair, they had to be talking about bottle blonds. They want brunettes, redheads, and black-haired ladies to stop bleaching.

    Personally, I envy that bottle blond always shows it's color regardless of the lighting, and regardless of if it's dirty. But, at the same time, I think the fact you have to see natural blond hair in proper lighting to see it's actual color is romantic. Like a diamond in the rough, it must capture the light in just the right way to the angle you're looking at it for you to see it. It's a kind of shine, a shimmer.

  • I prefer natural blond hair. Dyed blond CAN look good, but all too often it doesn't. I don't think people are careful enough about how they do it and whether or not it will look good on them individually.

  • People who dye blond tend to go lighter than what looks natural. Naturally super light-blonde is still shiney, the dye typically lacks the quality.

    Natural blond hair is usually a touch darker by adulthood, super light hair on adults can look somewhat odd. Mine has gradually darkened over time, but is still blond. It'd be hard to dye to match my tone because its such a mix of shades.

  • I'm a dyed blond who was a natural blond before turning brunette naturally. Honestly, I prefer the look of natural blond, but that's mostly because you can really tell when people are fake blondes. If you use bleach it makes it like platinum or white, which is really ugly. If you use a boxed dye it's pretty obvious. Also, usually brunettes like to dye blond highlights into their hair thinking it makes them look more natural when really it makes it look really fake.

    The best way to go is to either use hydrogen peroxide (or sun in) on ALL of the hair, or to go to a professional to get it done. And don't go too light if getting it done professionally. I use hydrogen peroxide and people think I'm natural.

  • bottle blondes tend to be prettier on average than natural blondes. the natural blond hair color can look washed out and dull, so it's best to get professional color to keep it up.

  • there are a ton of fake blondes around. my hair is in between blond and brown. I was a blond child with hair that darkened to the point that it isn't really blond anymore especially compared to the bleached girls, but lighter than a brunette by far. I also have light eyes and skin.

    so with my coloring a lot of girls enhance with highlights or dye. I think this can look okay but it usually does look somewhat fake..but then you see natural brunettes with fake bright blond hair and that looks even worse.

    sometimes I contemplate it because fake or not it does seem that blondes get noticed easily, the blond hair is just bright and pretty but it looks bad when it doesn't match the face. I do think a lot of fake blondes look fake and ugly.

    especially when her coloring is naturally brunette.

    but I can't say sometimes I want to make the jump, maybe highlights because my hair is blondeish on its own, but I'm scared of looking fake! it often looks washed out as well.

    very few people in my part of the country have naturally bright blond hair but it is very pretty. although the light eyelashes and brows that go with it are not so pretty :/

  • When people dye their hair blond, it seems like they usually dye it a really unnatural ugly shade of blond, which is why it probably doesn't look good. I think natural blond hair looks much better, and you can usually tell dye blond hair compared to natural
