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..

      You go girl . Always wanted to say that ..thanks maidinbedlam hugs 
    • Maid In Bedlam
      firstly. Thank you Suzanne. I do ramble sometimes but glad you got to the end   You cannot be both in reality. Either your stelth or your not in my opnion.   You cant be stelth really if you want to as you so aptly put it . wearing your TG armband and giving the salute.   Either you want to be one of the "Look at me im a tranner" populous or I just want to be a woman blend in and just live the rest of our lifes as such. The greatest and most sucessful Transition story never told.   I am part of the latter. At no point will i ever raise my arm in the tg salute. Go to a pride or wave a rainbow flag. Im not proud of being who i am. I dont see how i could be proud of it. I havent done anything to be proud of. I am just getting on with my life how in reality it should have been from the start.   Some may say you are so brave. How so? Im just doing what comes natural. Granted it was not always the case. But I was always a woman. I just come clean with myself and decided to physically make it so.   In fact the only time i raise my head above the trenches is on a couple of trans based internet sites. In the real world only 5 people know of my past one my doctor and the other my partner. Who held my hand while i blossomed and thats just the way i like it.

      Okay, I quit....I can't edit worth a darn at this hour; am going on a long vacation, till I recover from my embarrassment.
    • Suzanne1
      oops, it's late and I'm editing ever more poorly; scratch that last partial sentence.  Was about to state that I wanted to be an activist...bust I already wrote that, in an earlier sentence🤔.
    • Maid In Bedlam
      Its a wonderful concept. But many of us crave the warmth of another human being by our side.   I know i do and i couldnt bare to be alone in the world.   yes another person in your life can be full of drama. hense why you choose your potentail partner wisely.   I was actually scared stiff of being left alone.
    • Suzanne1
      Much wisdom in that post.  I fear though, that many of us are of the narcissistic "see me" persuasion, and it seems that more than a few of us hold the consensus that "going stealth" is somehow a betrayal of the TG population.  It seems that many of us seem to want to raise our right arm in a chauvinistic Roman-salute to our exalted "Community Values," while wearing our TG-armbands conspicuously on our sleeves. Just my two-pennies worth of thought; never wanted to be an activist---self-styled or otherwise.   I heartily concur with the sentiment that one learns to be a woman by watching, listening, and hanging out with natal women.    Best wishes to all who practice reasonable tolerance and understanding.   Personally I never had any desire to be

      I cant reallly add any advise to your dilemmmas. I really wouldnt as i have never really dealt with the situation so i am neither qualified or have the capacity from any real life expreiances.   But for what its worth I do want to say. Laura, Your a lovely person and i have read your words in many of the threads you have commented on. Whatever comes of this please do make sure its for your own best outcomes. Many have tried to hide there feelings for the sake of someone else and its never really ended well for them.   I really do hope that you come out of all this Happy and in a better position than what you was when you went in.   Im gonna send you a big HUG. Keep your chin up girl

      Take a look around you. Sit on a bench and watch the world go by for a while. ( I know its impossible to do that right now but you get the idea) See what other women of your age group are wearing around you. Take a mental note. If you really want to blend in then copy there dress sense. But put your own spin on it.   Big mistake people who are planning on going stelth do is dress inappropriate for there age. an example of this would be thinking of it from a male perspective. DONT DO THAT. Such as heels you can just about walk in and a mini skirt that doesnt leave much to the imagination for grocery shopping. Its not rocket sceince. You wanna blend in then you have to wear things that everyone else is wearing. Its pretty basic stuff. Once you have established yourself then you can experiment a little. But dont run before you can walk. Most women have learnt this art from childhood. As you are  just learning therefore you need to be observant of what other woman already know.       Like what Erikka said. You blend. You dont stick out. . No one notices you because you look the same as everyone else. ( No dissrespect intended Erikka) Its not only appreance. Its a mental ideology. Stop being in the mindset of im just a guy in a dress. You are so much more than just that. You have to get into the practise of Im just a woman wearing what women do.   To coin a phrase i have used many times before.   A man doesnt become a woman. A woman just makes herself more womanly.   If your going to be a man and wear a dress then i would just stay in the realms of a cross dresser. However if you want to be your, to coin the phrase "Your true self" that you used in another thread then be in the state of mind thats what i am.

      It's very late, and I'm very bored.  Was perusing old threads and old memories when I happened across this thread.  I realize everyone's gender reassignment surgeries have been scrubbed for the duration of the present crisis; so sorry.   I think that I would have hated for anything to have interfered with mine.  [It was bad enough for me just having to sit on the tarmac waiting on a spare part for the plane & it's installation.🤔]   For me, surgery was in Autumn of that year.  Post-operatively, I wore robes & sweat pants mostly, while at the convalescent home.  On the flight home, I wore jeans.  Reading the other posts in this thread-and thinking back to what my mates at the home said & how they behaved----I guess I must have a high tolerance for pain/discomfort, or some such thing.🤔  However, each person must look to their own needs & comfort, and dress accordingly, we're all individuals with different needs for personal comfort.   As far as assistance from airport personnel, it really wasn't all that forthcoming.  Gave up waiting for the recommended wheelchair &/or a baggage cart at the airport check-in, and carried my luggage to the flight gate.  I endured 3 separate security checks; the first 2 general/routine, with the last singling me out personally.  At the completion of the second security-check  when I asked for assistance raising my suitcase onto a conveyor belt, the screener apprised me that they were not there to help me.  The only assistance I received was from the chauffeur who provided transport to the airport.   Best wishes to all, and hopefully those who don't succumb to the "pandemic" (or the flu---I understand over 10x more worldwide have died so far this year from  the flu than from this Hunan corona-virus) will resume their so-desired courses of action.

      Do you know that song,   Girls can wear jeans And cut their hair short Wear shirts and boots 'Cause it's OK to be a boy But for a boy to look like a girl is degrading 'Cause you think that being a girl is degrading But secretly you'd love to know what it's like Wouldn't you What it feels like for a girl   Just sharing the first thing that came into my head on reading the above  post.   Why does it have to be a secret? Ask yourself this: What do you want from your life?   Sadly in the destopian world we live in people do sometimes see it as degrading. Men have always been seen as the stronger sex. mainly by other men. Ask any woman whos the better sex and im sure they will tell you. It all depends on what sex you ask you will get a diffrent answer.   This is why a lot of people like yourself never take that step. From expreiance. Its by no means a step back. I may not and have never been as strong as the next man physically. But it doesnt bother me. because i have so many more qualitys that men can never have. I have had so many expreiances that men can never have. Theres so many things on the plus side that theres no place i would rather be. Ive tried both sides of the coin and can say im in an almost unique position where i can balance one against the other. For me I know whos best. You need to judge from your own perspective. I could type for hours about the pros and cons but in the end its you that decides what you want from your life and where you want that life to go. Never go by what others tell you. At the end of the day. When you are taking your last breath do you want to reflet on all the things you could have done or all the things you did do?   I sound like a feminist 🤣
