photoshopping hair colours

review swatch photo

So yeah, another blonde hair inspired post! But this time I've been playing around in photoshop giving my hair a bit of a playing with using layers and editing. Despite being fairly used to using photoshop I've never even attempted it before but I was quite happy with how these turned out in the end. I just wanted to see what I'd look like with various tones of blonde hair inspired by my previous post. I know that I want my hair to be less highlighted and more of one even tone. I definably want minimal or no roots, I always make a point having roots still whenever I get my hair done but I think I'd quite like no roots for a change.

I'd love blonde Targareyn style hair (like the first photo) but I don't think I'll ever be able to pull it off as my brows are too dark and it'd probably wash my fairly tanned skin out. Top Left is a bit too dark, and very similar to my natural hair colour. Bottom lest is a little too Lindsey Lohan, I always get compared to her and I think it looks slightly too dark for what I think I want. I think I personally like bottom right the best. I did lighten my brows slightly to match the hair colour a little but I don't know how comfortable I am with lightening my brows IRL. The idea of having ombre brows does not sit well with me! They grow so fast anyway I don't reckon it would be worth it. I definitely want more of a caramel, warm toned blonde rather than ashy tones. I like creamy blonde tones and I definitely think I might take this photo in with me and see what they stylist says!

If you'd like me to share the layer masks that I made in photoshop for these photoshopped hair colours then I can do. It was a fairly simple method I used when I was making these but it does require some photoshop understanding! I'll post the PSD if people are interested (:

  4. I like the darkest one! Which is strange, I usually love light hair on other people just because my skin's too dark to ever go anywhere near blonde.

  5. I like the 2nd and the 3rd one, I think the others are slightly too light, especially the first one :) x

  6. the bottom right is lovely, would love to see what you look like with a super polished look. Although the Cara/ grunge look does suit you too! x

  7. The bottom right looks gorgeous, but I really like the top right! I'm usually a huge fan of blonde-blonde-blonde, but the slightly darker look is beautiful.

  18. Love the first one it looks lovely on you, I would love my hair that colour, but I think it would damage my hair too much.

  19. i'm personally drawn to the top left picture but i think that's because it's similar to your natural hair colour and so is bound to suit you! i think the two bottom ones are really lovely too and even the top left one as well but it's just so light so it would be hard to know how well it looks on you until you actually got it done. whichever shade you decide to go for though, i'm sure will suit you very much! blonde is your colour! :) X

  22. All the hair colours look amazing on you! I wanted to have some subtle blonde highlights but my hair is quite dry and I don't want to damage it.

  44. Love the bottom left, I bet you could pull of the first one if you did it as a sort of dip dye effect so the roots look a bit darker and more natural but the rest of the hair is that lovely light blonde :)
