This is me as a child. In the picture on the right - my hair looks reddish but that's just the 70's processing. I have very very naturally dark almost black hair.
And now I'm growing out my hair. I've liked it really blond for summer but I told my stylist that next time I came in - I wanted to start darkening it up for fall/winter. I want more of a caramel color or dark blond. I get my hair colored every 4-5 weeks. Any longer than that and I have HORRIBLE white roots. My hair is now completely gray/white. It also has the texture of gray hair - very coarse. Good times.
I would love to go back to dark but the white roots would show AWFUL and I would have to color it almost every 2-3 weeks. Maybe one day I'll take the plunge and go back dark but for now - I sort of just feel like I was born to be blond. :-)
I'm going to add......I do not color my eyebrows. DO YOU SEE HOW THICK they were in high school? (oh my gosh my hair......you can't get past that to see the eyebrows). In my 20's I plucked them to death - I haven't had to pluck them much since. They are still dark but somehow it works. I've thought about taking them lighter but felt like it would look crazy.
