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.

 

Hugs!

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..

      I noticed a big change in my dysphoria right away, just from the fact that I was taking steps to make progress.  That started even before I picked up my first prescription.   I didn't feel anything earth-shattering right away.  Some people do, but not me.  On the other hand, by two weeks in, there was noticeable tingling in my nipples.  At about six weeks, I had enough breast growth that I was wearing an unpadded sports bra to minimize the girls, since I was still in male mode most of the time.  Not that they were big or anything (they still aren't), but they did not look plausibly male.  I found that I couldn't trot down stairs the way I used to, because my breasts would jiggle uncomfortably.   I came out publicly and went full time about three months after starting HRT.   I could notice that my skin was softer and drier.  By about a year, my body hair, which had never been abundant, was gone, totally.  The hair on my legs, the hairiest part of my body, had thinned to normal female abundance.  It is thin enough and light enough that I don't have to shave my legs.   I also noticed changes in my face.  The first change was my lips.  I was putting on lipstick one day and realized that they were someone else's lips!  That change was quite sudden.  I became aware of other changes in my face, and now, three-plus years in, the person in the mirror looks female.  Not saying I'm pretty - that would be too much to ask - but I don't look very male any more.   Mentally, the changes were subtle, but real.  As a male, I had noticed what some people call "mental static": racing thought fragments, none of which related to anything in particular, but which, together, made enough mental racket to keep me from falling asleep.  I would get violent images that I won't describe here, that I found quite disturbing, as I have always been a non-violent person.  There was no light-bulb moment for me, but I did notice that the mental static and the violent images have gone away.  I am much calmer, and I can feel a full range of emotions.  I will cry with intense emotions, even happy stuff.   Good luck with your HRT!  I am sure you will like it.

      Hear is another song I want to re-record when I achieve my female voice...hope you like it.... even though my heart 2018.mp3
    • Shay
      There is just something about this song and this woman....  
    • Shay
      Keeping fingers crossed my HRT NP sent me email indicating my doctor said it takes 2 weeks to transfer records and it's been a week - but they were trying to fast track it - so maybe this week.   Could you share the changes you've seen and felt over the time you've been lucky enough to be on HRT? Good and bad.   Thanks,   Heather Shay

      Hi Toni.   I am a bit concerned for your safety.  Do you have someplace to go if your roommates become aggressive again?  Assuming you're still in Minneapolis area?  I found this online https://www.mntransgenderhealth.org/  Please take care of yourself❣️
    • KayC
      Nice to meet you @key plate! and welcome! You've found a great place to let this out.  We are all here facing both similar and different obstacles to transition, but all with the same hope ... to be happy. I cannot and should not give you advice about your mother.  You seem to know her well, since your are not surprised but rightfully disappointed by her response. I do hope you make the choices that are best for yourself (and not somebody else) but ... When its all said and done, she still is and will forever be your mother.  Don't let go of the love in your heart for her (it seems like she needs it)   Deep breaths ... one step at a time❤️
    • KayC
      Wow!  Thanks for sharing your photos and story @Joslynn!  That's quite a transition and very inspiring❣️
    • KayC
      That's great Jackie! Sending sincere prayers for a smooth procedure and recovery🙏  Thank you so much for all you do to share your journey with us❣️  
    • KayC
      People who are sincerely kind (without expectation of anything in return) are truly compassionate.  They are that way because they know deep down that we are all intimately inter-connected as part of this complex and eternal universe.   You figured it out, @Mary Jane.  You are enlightened❣️

      I meant "not aligned on the.. line" XD Can I ask how u did that?? OoO
    • Liam da potato
      I don't know how u did that but it's really impressive if your ok with comments I' say that the nose with mouth are not really on the vertical line that separates the head in 2, if you understand what I mean. (not my drawing) Mouth and nose are like that \ and eyes like that | But seriously that's really good!
    • Liam da potato

      Bless you Sweetie. . .hang on 'til the sun comes back up!
    • Chrysalis
      I dressed someone else's feeling about that very same sort of thing. What i said then and strongly suggest now is that you find a gender therapist! Like alcohol counselors, it is most typically Gender Therapists are trans themselves and so have been through the early stages of doubt and confusion and come through with experience and the knowledge that provides.  Hope that offers you some hope and help?
