I currently have dirty blond hair. I have lighter skin with blue eyes and freckles. My hair dresser keeps telling me to dye my hair red because of my coloring. I am starting to get really interested in the idea, I am sick of how I look now. However, I really dislike red/auburn hair (on me) so I have been thinking about a dark purple/red/brown color. It is clearly not a natural color that grows out of someone's head, but I still think it looks pretty. My boyfriend keeps saying "it would just look fake" and my mom keeps saying "just go brown."
I have a sort of quirky style, I dress basically however I want, and I am really into "unnatural" looking things like makeup and bright nail polish. I am afraid dying it will take it too far. I don't want to look really fake. Opinions?

I like auburn. I always called it "copper hair," though Google says copper is a lighter shade. Guess I wouldn't know that intuitively, since I'm not at all metro. I tend to dress like a trucker, minus the hat, even though I have the mind of a librarian.
If I can see your picture, I might have ideas. Jet black like a goth might not be right for you; but it sure does make girls hard for me to resist. Fire truck red might be a good one for you to try. I'd avoid purple. You're not a Technicolor cartoon creature. Nor an anime babe. So don't try it.
A brown hair with some copper highlights (which I have naturally, oddly enough) might be your thing.0
