When to change your hair color....

My whole life I have cut and colored my hair.. It has been 3 years now since I have colored my hair and have been growing it "long"! I am very happy with it but, sometimes I miss having lighter hair..

When is is maybe not beneficial in this industry to change your hair color?
I also kinda thought that more photographers might "prefer" a all-natural girl..?

♥ Would love to hear peoples thoughts!

Photographers don't really care if you're all natural or not, just so long as you make it look good. At least that's been my experience so far!

Personally I think you don't need to tread too far from where your hair is naturally, but maybe just brighten it up a little!! You are right, lighter hair would suit you! I think maybe some very subtle but thorough highlights all throughout your hair would elevate your look and pull more focus to your face and eyes, giving you a more "from-within" glow.

As long as it looks good on you, go for it!

I have blonde hair naturally, but I dyed it red for about half a year. I miss it every time I look at my pictures...loved having red hair!
