Is Your Hair the Wrong Color?

Were you destined to be a blonde? Or maybe red is your true-hue? Find out what shade is meant for you with this quiz

Ever wondered why your hair is mousy brown when you're anything but? Seriously, what if our strands could take a cue from our personality and auto-dye to a matching shade? What color would yours be?

Before you take a guess and head to the sink with a box of hot pink hair color or to the salon for some major dyeing, maybe you should find out which hair color shade is really right for you. Not only will you save yourself some time and cash, but you also won't have to deal with totally fried hair. Too many boxes of hair color or bottles of bleach and you're hair will look more Courtney Love or Lindsay Lohan than Kate Hudson or Ashlee Simpson. Trust us, rehab-chic is not a trend you want to be starting.

So take this quiz to see whether your hair color is doing your persona any favors or if you should get your butt into a stylist's chair, pronto. And once you do take the dye plunge, make sure you follow up with products made for color-treated hair, OK? Like we said, you don't want to try and rock the frizzy straw look, we don't even want to know what personality that matches up with (pretty sure it rhymes with dazy or minsane though).

Sharon Rose Fauber (Sat, 16 Apr 2011 19:00:56 -0700): I am a natural burnett..i like lighter shade of warm browns..
Rob KM (Sun, 17 Apr 2011 00:19:56 -0700): My wife is a Swedish blonde, and this quiz says she should die her hair BLACK because she's self confident and doesn't care what others think. I think she'll keep the blond, lol.
Pamela Lerma (Wed, 20 Apr 2011 10:18:39 -0700): After taking the test I was amazed! The results were my own natural hair color!
Julie Ann Blenco (Wed, 20 Apr 2011 10:30:16 -0700): I don't think I could pull it off.
Lori Vicknair Chauvin (Wed, 20 Apr 2011 13:31:42 -0700): Fits me to a T.
Kimberly Scott (Wed, 20 Apr 2011 13:49:06 -0700): I just don't think chocolate or chestnut would work for me. If it's not your natural color already, you should try brunette hair. You've long been secure with who you are and don't need glitz and glamour to wow friends and win over coworkers. You know that it's not your 'do that makes you stand out in a crowd, not that you're super-into standing out in a crowd anyway. You have a great head on your shoulders -- one that's begging to become a beautiful shade of chocolate or chestnut.
Dianna Burkholder Jumper (Sat, 07 May 2011 07:21:08 -0700): Guess I'm from the 60's Test too modern for me!
Dianna Burkholder Jumper (Sat, 07 May 2011 07:23:07 -0700): I didn't get an answer! I use a Linen, just to even up Mousey Ash Blonde hair! A do it yourselfer! LOL
Anni Davis (Tue, 07 Jun 2011 18:51:53 -0700): I took the quiz and was afraid to find out what color it would say. But then, it turned out to be the color I already dye my hair! I knew I was meant to be blond...
Cailin Hayes (Wed, 13 Jul 2011 18:49:29 -0700): Why would I trade my natural copper/gold hair for a dark brown shade? I could never pull it off.
Ana Margarida Oliveira (Thu, 04 Aug 2011 13:19:06 -0700): Test is 100% right!
Lee King (Tue, 16 Aug 2011 20:37:41 -0700): it turned out the results were my natural colour! amazing
Maleni Delgadillo Thibeault (Wed, 17 Aug 2011 12:23:01 -0700): I have naturally black hair. I tried to dye my hair blonde once, I don't think I did it right, lmao. If it's not your natural color already, you should try blonde hair. All-American and traditional as they come, you have blonde written all over you. You like to have fun (as blondes do) but aren't just some party-girl airhead, so with your sharp mind behind a golden head of hair, you'll help prove once and for all that being blonde does NOT mean you're a ditz.
Madeline Steck (Fri, 19 Aug 2011 22:40:36 -0700): On a few of those questions I had to just randomly guess. I didn't know who the Barry guy was, nor do I shop high fashion clothes. The jacket question was like "Huh?"
Nicole Gauvreau (Tue, 23 Aug 2011 17:27:04 -0700): BLACK! I'd look positively green, I hardly ever wear black clothing, let alone dying my hair that colour. No, I'm happy with my current red, not so fond of my natural dark blond/light brown, mostly because people always call me a blond, and I don't see myself as a blond.
Saki Angie (Fri, 26 Aug 2011 20:03:14 -0700): 0.0 WOW! My result was black hair. Half my family has brown hair and the other half has black hair. I ended up with brown hair and ALWAYS thought the black was for me. I've been dying my hair that colour since I was 14!
Christine Sanders Hardwick (Sat, 03 Sep 2011 21:14:42 -0700): I tried black. It made me look sickly. I don't have the skintone for it.
Tina Moore (Sat, 21 Jan 2012 13:10:42 -0800): wow just the color I have changed to and get alot of complients on it.
Helena Gena (Sat, 21 Jan 2012 13:19:30 -0800): I rock black!
Dawn Blue Myers (Sat, 21 Jan 2012 21:37:16 -0800): Described me to a tee. I'm a natural reddish blonde, but I look way better in mahogany brown.
Elizabeth Tedore (Tue, 21 Feb 2012 16:16:37 -0800): My results: Brunette, which am am naturally haha.
Pandao Shafer (Mon, 27 Feb 2012 09:11:04 -0800): Needs more options. It did give me brunette though.

Jenny Bunyan (Tue, 20 Mar 2012 12:14:38 -0700): Apparently, I should be dying my hair black. Crikey.
Tricia Tulak (Sun, 15 Apr 2012 23:02:59 -0700): The best hair color depends on a person's skin tone, and eye color.
Yoly David (Mon, 16 Apr 2012 00:11:45 -0700): nice tip,my eyes turn brown when i use brown on my hair,but i prefer blueblack,it compliments me more.
Katie Woytasik (Thu, 26 Apr 2012 15:52:33 -0700): I will NEVER bee blonde!
Lezah Lubz (Mon, 28 May 2012 09:01:46 -0700): my hair dyed with dark red or burgundy color then the result was a brunette. >.< I wish the next time I'Ll dye my hair will be the color in this result.
Carole Westgarth-Thompson (Mon, 25 Jun 2012 08:30:20 -0700): I think it should go on your skin clour, and your eyes, as it happens I am dark haired, but it doesn't suit me, when you get older you should lighten your hair a few shades but thanks anyway.
Shanna Mullen (Wed, 27 Jun 2012 17:00:50 -0700): Black? Interesting. I'm still scared after you said I'm like what's-her-face from Twilight though. I'm not being snarky, I honestly can't think of her name. Oh. Bella.
Aunti Kristan Kincade (Wed, 27 Jun 2012 17:06:10 -0700): PANTS Gwenie. PANTS!

Brianne Hill (Mon, 11 Feb 2013 22:59:08 -0800): Judging by your pic, not only could you pull it off it'd be great!
Adéla Vágnerová (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 05:44:36 -0700): I'm a natural redhead and I won't try brunette hair! -.- :D
