As mentioned, here are photos of my new hair color! I am temporarily ditching the reddish hair and opting for something a little more understated.
I went for a darker brown shade and re-did my highlights since in the older hairstyle my highlights were all located at the lower half of my hair.
I don't know of any shade that is similar to what the hairstylist gave me as from what I have noticed, my hair isn't quite a true color. It's a dark brown but it leans towards the mousey brown at times and towards a slightly warmer brown at others. Rather strange, but I guess that makes it a little bit interesting? And my highlights are thin blonde strands that spread out across the whole of my head so it provides a lift but is subtle at doing that, not too much of an 'in-your-face' blonde streak.
Here are the shots of my hair I took when I was home.

And here was one my boyfriend took of me over the weekend.

Ignore my expression, was caught off guard. ha.
But I do love how the colors in my hair show up in this photo.
In all honesty, I think I am rather partial to reverting back to reddish hair as soon as I get the chance to. I don't hate this hairstyle, I guess I am just sort of luke warm with it? It is nice and I do love the highlights, but I am missing my reddish hair already.
I guess going red is something addictive. I feel dark hair makes me look a little fairer or paler, whichever. It might just be my mind set though.
I did a video with this hair color and also talked about upcoming videos, you can see the video here:

Let me know what you guys think of this hair color. Love it, hate it, prefer the older one?
I personally prefer my older reddish hair. ha. But oh well, in life you have to experiment!
Edit// Looking at the photos of my new hair, it seems like my hair isn't that much different, so here's an older photo to compare it to.
