I really don’t want to come of superficial but here goes…when I met my girlfriend her hair was brown and I loved it. I have always been more attracted to brunettes for some reason. Anyway, last week she dyed her hair and it’s mix of blue and blonde and truthfully, it doesn’t look good on her at all.
I have no idea how to tell her I do not like it, but it looks so unattractive that it is actually turning me off to her.
Would I be mean if I told her I don’t like her new hair color? What should I do?

I have to say I did snicker just a bit reading your email…because I am a true brunette and over the years I have highlighted my hair and at one point ended up being sort of a dirty blonde color. Well, my husband was very much like you…he liked brown hair too.
So one day when I was talking to him about my hair color he said…he thought that I was much more striking as a brunette but that he was attracted to me know matter what.
I got the hint loud and clear. I appreciated him being gentle with his words. I did end up going back to being a brunette but it was mainly because I was ready.
So my advice to you would be…if she asks…tell her how you feel but don’t be mean. Also, don’t be surprised if she doesn’t go back to her brown hair right away because she has to be ready to do it.
A lot of women…especially young women go through different phases with their hair color…hang in there I am sure she’s worth waiting for!
