The Darker look of Beyonce

When I was 18, I begged my stylist to dye my hair black. I hated my sandy brown hair because it looked dusty to me. I wanted that cold black look. She refused. She said it would make me look older and harsher. Still even now, I have never worn the cold black look. I tried the off black, lighter brown and even auburn, but ended up back to dusty sandy brown. That's why I prefer wearing the braids. I can at least go dark brown without harming my hair.

When I saw the pictures of Beyonce with darker hair high lighted in dark brown it reminded me of my younger days and my desperately wanting black hair. I think she looks great. Though initially I didn't believe it was really her.
I'm getting older. Most of my friends are already showing lots of grey hair. I have about four strands. But still, I can't imagine dying my hair black when the grey really shows up. I guess people really do leave an impression on you. My hair dresser brainwashed me to believe that with my skin tone, black hair would be harsh. But I know that is not true now. You can wear just about any hair color and look great with a positive self image. At least most people can.

that's Beyonce?
Are you sure it's not Solange?

though she and her sister look alike, it is her based on the search I did. It just goes to show how the color of your hair can make you look so different. In the one photo she looks like the girl, from that's so Raven-Disney channel.

She's a beautiful woman...could probably shave it and be stunning. But, I like it better light on her.
When I was younger, I'd gone purple, steel blue, all those 70's and early 80's colors. Got it out of my system. :) Oh, wait, it's blonde now...guess I haven't, lol.

Do you think you will ever get brave and go with the black hair? I think you would look good with it. I tried reddish hair but didn't like it on me, so I'm back at the dark brown.

She looks younger in these pics. The hair color is cute!

It all depends on your coloring. I went black once and it looked a hot mess! If you have warm or reddish undertones in your skin, black usually doesn't look good. However, it can look fantastic if you have cool undertones.

I have very warm undertones and cold black hair. I look good. I did sandy brown ish. Not.so.much.for.me. LOLOL.

It is something how words tend to deeply sway our views long after they have been said. hmmm.

Beyonce is so beautiful in any hair color. But I have to say, I find that the darker shade even more flattering on her.

E said...

Oh my god...I was thinking the exact same thing as gc...she looks nothing like Beyonce...but she's very pretty with the black hair.

I have about 40-45% white hair on my head, and Im 37. I decided to start dying my hair last year for one main reason: to not look as old as dirt. The response has been mostly favorable. I went from being called "ma'am" to "miss" almost overnight!

What I hate the most is the upkeep. That sucks. But hey, its the price we pay for vanity!
