OK I need opinions! Blond or Brown?

Recommended Posts

ShawnaLeigh

Well not opinions of me in a blond or brown wig because I do not have both, but more so, what do you folks like and have you worn both?

Also. 

Do blonds have more fun? 

I am having to order a new wig today and was considering a blond to darker blond for me.  Not sure though as I have always been a brunette.  This current wig is very highlighted with blond but still very brown looking and I love it.  With all this crap going on I can not take advantage of the free wig my therapist is buying for me through his new program.  (So awesome!)  Sadly It could be months before that happens so I need a replacement.  My current wig is getting just to frizzy and worn out and even having it cut would not make me happy not that it could be currently with the virus having everything shut down. I like the length as is anyways.   However It is sold out every where!  I'm looking for another cheap one to get me threw the apocalypse.  LOL

 

Sort of serious question though.

Those who have or wear multiple colors what seems to get you more attention? 

I'm not looking to up the attention from men but I admit I am attracted to blonds and red heads too.  I do love attention, who doesn't,  but I am not wanting to invite more at this time.  Its getting to be a bit much for me to deal with and is very distracting work-wise.  I know folks are just trying to nice in general but I am looking forward to Shawna not being the "shiny new toy" everyone is talking about or talking to me about.  

I guess it could be worse so I will quite bitching.  LOL

Male attention? Welcome to womanhood 😊

 

cant help you Shawna. I have my own but im sure someone will be along who can.

 

 

Personally i think its more what suits your complextion.

 

I was blonde once. It never suited me so since then ive always been a dark to dark red.

 

 

Its a shame you cant try before you buy. I imagine it must be hard to pick a wig without actually trying it on?

Opinion only. Something that suits your natural hair color or complexion is going to work best. Otherwise it will stand out like a sore thumb, inviting "carpet match the drapes" comments.

Meh, I know exactly one blonde I've been attracted to. Old friend, I've known her since the early 80's and she used to support herself as an underwear model. Platinum blonde worked on her. Otherwise, all the shades just sort of make me shrug.

 

Brunettes and red-heads are where the party is at. Your complexion is... well, EVERYBODY'S complexion is... darker than mine. I personally gravitate towards auburn colors which is natural for me. I did have fun playing around with different styles at the wig store though. Great fun. Probably off-limits now though. I haven't checked to see if they're still open.

 

ANYWAY, with the reds in your skin-tone (you have a much ruddier complexion than I do, obviously), brunettes would probably compliment you better. I'm half afraid too much red would draw that out. I'm afraid I can't quite tell what color your eyes are from your profile pic. I'm going to guess some flavor of brown (because hey, most common) and say you should go for something in black, medium brown or golden brown. Probably medium to golden brown.

 

Hugs!

My eyes are hard to pin down. Dark brown as a kid.  Now a medium green with gold flecks in them. Really weird but lots of people who have seen them close say they are very unique and pretty.  mostly when they are not all blood shot from stating up to late.  Lol

I like them but always wished for that bright ocean blue.  Omg I die for blue eyes and a pretty face.

Personally I would stay a brunette if I was you, but I haven’t paid much attention to hair colors until now and I still have a lot to learn. I bought my wig from Paula young online it’s a honey brown and I really like it.

I think the word you're looking for is hazel. I briefly dated a girl with eyes like that in high school. Mine are hazel also, but they're more blue-gray.

 

So yeah, warm colors. If you want to go blonde, it should have brown tones in it. The darker to lighter brown fade-to-blonde look might work. A warmer light or fading into golden brown would work too.

 

Ugh, you are so missing out on the whole "try on every wig in the shop" experience. Frustrating.

No I am way favoring the brown spectrum still. More of an olive green not bright or blue side at all.

First off I'm doing my pin in a bind wigs online I bought two and a paid extra for the more dense or full of wig. I think I paid like $43 including shipping. Try them both on one was a blondish color and one was a brown I didn't like the way they look or felt. I'm better off going to the local beauty supply shop the girls are no mean they know I crossdress. You have to go there with some makeup on eye makeup some lipstick little blush and foundation and try a couple on. I'm really favoring the honey Brown blunt cut.. hopefully you need to spend an hour trying on different wigs to know for sure. You're a good-looking woman you'll figure it out..

      Like you i am and have been Sucidal since i was  little  (recently upgraded to Severe  as well as upgraded   Severe depression and Anxiety  Disorder )  Due to some BS  in RL last year ) And i have gazilion NP  diagnosis  as well.        This said only to let you know i DO understand  you better then you might think.     First you DONT want to die thats obvius and thats good. And you SHOULD be very scared  of this route  as well as its not even close to as peacful or painless  as you are led to belive from those claiming it is. Its quite the opposite.  USE  those feelings  of  DONT whant to die  and  being scared   to take this step     What you need is someone to talk to  and im here if you want to get to know me better or give me chance either out here  / Or by Pm /or both. You also NEED to somehow get profetional  help  ASAP.     And last  belive me  i KNOW  how  down you must be right now  in youre obvius  DEEP  Depression  as i have been there MANY times  in my life BUT TRUST me on this  Suicide is NOT have not / will not ever  be the right  solution.  It WILL  get better again   so you HAVE to  KEEP ON  FIGHTING  for youre life  and youre goals   with every  breath you take   my friend  IT CAN be done   YOURE NOT  alone   my friend

      Unfortunately, there's no magic formula for coming out to family. You tell them in a safe way (personal safety is key) that you feel will help them to understand. Depending on their personal bias, they will accept you or reject you. Explain, don't argue and be prepared to answer questions. Some family members will accept you unconditionally. Others will be like my egg-donor, and go insane.   Sometimes friends and family come around with time. Sometimes they don't. You can't control that. All you can do is be the best, most authentic you that you can possibly be.   I live in the Midwest. I've had one family member and zero friends reject me. Your odds are probably better than you think.   Hugs!

      Depression is a powerful thing. The kind of crushing weight that won't let you breathe. What worked for me... coming out, HRT and being myself... won't necessarily work for you. The first thing I'd do is find a therapist. Depression is a very big thing, don't face it alone.   Don't say anything about social distancing. My therapist is online and we talk via a video app. No excuses. Get some help.   Next up: Support your friend. The kind of people who bully other people aren't the kind of people who make good partners. She's going to need you when enough of the novelty has worn off that he starts acting like himself again. You don't have to pretend to be happy for her, but you also don't need to nag her about it. Express your concerns if you have to. Once. Then drop it. You don't need to be hurting her. Be there when she needs someone to help pick up the pieces. Don't say, "I told you so."   You're allowed to be sad about the money thing. A lot of people are in the same situation right now. Try to make plans for "What happens if the money runs out?" Where will you live? What will you eat? Who will pat you on the head and tell you that you're pretty? You know, necessities.   In the meantime, we're here if you need to vent. We're pretty good at the emotional support group thing. I think you know that suicide isn't the answer. You'll get through this.   Hugs!

      I've spent a large part of my life on forums all over the net trying to talk people out of sucicide, why? because I feel similar to many of these people.  I too have wanted to end my life many times.   I've never carried out a plan nor made attempts, but I had gotten as far as a plan before changing my mind, not always for the same reasons.   I suffer from anexity issues, depression, and low self esteem.  I'm transgender, not transitioned yet, 32, and may have a few mental and personality disorders from years of emotional abuse.    I have 4 close friends, two of which I have feelings for, neither have them back.  I have made a lot of progress towards improving myself because of all the love and support of one of them.  I'm not always open with how I feel about much of any thing but i tell her every thing, she is one of only three people who know I've considered suicide in the past.  She's my primary confidant and bedrock keeping me sane and alive.     Today I found out she's dating one of my bullies, that's known me for all of my life and hadn't started to be nice to me till recently.  I had a crush on her, I've nearly hated him, now i feel shocked, confused, devastated, on top of being worried about my future, my friends, and on top of my already existing depression and issues I have against my own body, I now have this running through my mind too. They have only told me, because they say they can trust me, but the other group of people our other friends think their both in happy relationships with other people and this bully is bffs with one of her exes.   I don't want to think or deal with any of this, I haven't worked at all, i am running out of money because of the virus, I hate myself, I just wish I could feel happy for her, I feel like a horrible person for not being able to.  My other best friend wouldn't even talk to me for two days and does this from time to time.   I want to die, except to my horror, I've learned from the mistakes of those I know who survived or where stopped, I having spent all my life trying to prevent others from sucicide find myself considering it.   I'll tell no one any thing, shut down emotionally, and never come back, or at least that's what I'm afraid of.  A part of me still wants to live, I just don't want to feel suffering or pain any more.  but I can feel the grip of the despair growing more powerful than ever before, so I ask some one please help me, please give me advice, some one save me.

      Good Morning all. i'm just finishing my cup of joe and admiring the pics of the nails. Very nice! I work retail so I have to keep mine short. However I am now on a 30 day loa so I am going to try false ones for now. It's going to be around 60 today and pushing 80 tomorrow.
    • BrandiBri
      I agree with everyone here, It is never too late to transition. For many of us it was a matter of life or death. I began HRT at 69 and now I am at peace with myself and having so much fun!   Hugs, Brandi

      I know.  My wife keeps talking about it like I'm "flipping a switch" and it's just not like that.  At all.  Still, when it comes to coming out, there's a temptation to treat it like a band-aid that hurts less if you just rip it off...

      I cannot be of much help as far as presenting yourself to the world, as I am not out (yet) to more than a tiny handful of people. So I live in the closet or in "stealth" mode. However, the folkx here have given me courage, and I'm looking at ways to change all that. Progress is sometimes a tiny drip. Someday. TA

      Certainly such feelings/symptoms are important for one's psychotherapist to know, but is it possible that one might also want to consult with a physician of one stripe or another?

      Good morning. I'm jealous of everyone's gorgeous nails. I have guitarists nails that are super short. Coffee almost done. Warm steamy weather ahead this week. That usually means storms and even tornadoes. Not fun. Wishing everyone a safe and happy day! TA

      Hi Jamey! Welcome! Let me address the "too late" notion, okay? I will turn 70 this summer and still awaiting commencement of HRT. When I mentioned to my therapist about two years ago that it was too late to start or change, she ticked off a list a people who transitioned late in life, and showed me the statistics that indicates most people transitioning do so later in life. Too late? Not a chance. TA
