Redblonde/Goldenblonde, depends on light influence and length of my hair, my beard is totally red though, looks funny :)

The hair on the top of my head is ashen brown, as is the hair on my mother's head and on most of my siblings' heads. One of my siblings has dark brown hair, and my father has black hair.

My moustache and beard (when I let them grow, and I currently wear a moustache) are ashen blond.

My eyebrows are in between ashen blond and ashen brown.

:moosemasI'm Ashen-blonde or Flaxen Blonde. When I spend a lot of time in the sun it becomes nearly white. My facial hair when I grow it out is Lightblonde. Some day I'll have a huge Lightblonde Viking beard. I can't wait!!:D

According to those samples, I think my hair is mostly likely darkblonde, which actually looks quite goldie to me. But in the sun during the winter (less sun exposure) a hint of reddish is evident in my hair too. I normally consider my hair to be goldie/reddy blonde, but I wonder now if flaxen would be more like it.... is flaxen golden blonde?? (The golden blonde in the sample looks unnaturally yellow to me though. :-O ) The reddish blonde in the sample looks VERY brassy and quite unnatural too, I think.

I had lighter hair before having kids. A common effect of pregnancy is that hair darkens. (Co-incides with the temporary development of linea nigra and sometimes darkening of freckles etc)

My natural hair colour is light brown, although it lightens during the summer to an almost golden brown.

My haircolor is brown/copper when its short and lightbrown/red/blonde when its long I have really wierd hair. I dont know how to explain it, none of those haircolors match.

Probably brown-darkbrown on that scale. Of course, when I spend time out in the sun it lightens, sometimes even having a chestnut hint to it in direct sunlight. It's weird.

I do not like these color options. I prefer something with much more options such as the one I posted in another thread in the past.

My hair is a dark Ash Blonde, with natural highlights. Mine is most similar to the one on the colorsilk box. (but still not exact.)

For example look at the differece in these pics/links between dark ash blonde, and ash brown:

Red brown.

It's dark brown at the roots, then as it fades from sun and stuff like that, it turns red.

(The golden blonde in the sample looks unnaturally yellow to me though. :-O ) The reddish blonde in the sample looks VERY brassy and quite unnatural too, I think.

I picked the rather extremes of the haircolors although except for the redbrown looked somewhat artificial to me, probabaly because not much people around here have this color natural, but I think Heksulv her haircolor is almost the same. Another remark about the colorsamples is that I couldn't find a good mediumblonde sample while the darkblonde could be a tint lighter, anyway it's a reasonable collection in my eyes.;)

About goldenblond, I agree most people here around also call the normal mediumblond golden. In fact the shade can only go in two directions when thinking of mediumblonde either towards the ashen or towards the golden. Both ashenblond and goldenblond are extreme but this was merely to point out the difference (the ashen shade is absent of rufosity while golden has some rufosity inherent).

The redblond haircolour shown I don't consider unnatural, I gathered some pics of people with this hairtype (in summer it will probably bleach to a more goldenblond haircolour).

Yes thats true hormon changing and stuff, same for men although in their case caused by growthperiods and puberty.
I myself was lightblonde until the age of six, when I was about 8 years old I had a brown haircolour this is my current haircolour until now.
Most schoolmates I know from childage had the same although a lot of them started darkening around their 13th-14th year some off them have now even darker hair as me, while others are still blond.

A mix of dark and ashen blonde in summer. Dark Blonde mixed with light brown most of the time.

My haircolor now is a dark brown, but when I was a baby and a little boy up to the age of about 6 or 7 years my hair color was darker, almost black!

I would like one too with more samples but in my experience you than only get remarks in a sense of "This darkblonde looks even darker as brown..etc." especially samples from most haircolour company look with this insight very dubious to me.:D
The main purpose was to make a poll with not too many options (although 14 is still a lot), therefore I couldn't import every different shade, I made thus this one only covering the extremes according to my perceptance.

My hair is light blonde, when I spend any time out in the sun in becomes white. During the winter months it has a more golden hue to it.

CRAP! I'm brown, but I hit dark brown by accident. I don't suppose the next person with dark brown could vote brown? ;)
My hair does have a little bit of red in it in the sun, or so I'm told. My mother's side has redheads.
