Today's color is...

To the hair designers that give away packs of hair:

I am always very happy to get a pack of your hair, but please stop labeling your hair with weird names so no one can figure out what the hell color it is.

I am a blonde. Usually a platinum blonde. I will also accept Beach Blonde, Light Blonde, Bleached Blonde, and Wheat Blonde.

However, if I have to sit there looking at Iced Happy Creamy Mix or Creamed Buttery Spread, I won't know whether to drink, wear, or put the hair on toast.

Do redneads and brunettes have this much trouble? LOL

Yes I often have on my head anything from caramel, to expresso, to fudge. MMM fudge...

Me too, Cen..from sable to coffee to chocolate to espresso. And everyone has a different idea of what "dark brown" or "black" is so you can't even go by that a lot of the time.

Yes, just name it blonde, brown, black or red for god's sake! What I dont get is that I will get a hair color named Cinammon and the hair is actually blonde and not brown like cinammon really is????

Redhead here - had to log in & check. I'm wearing Ginger Warm. It's only a little too dark and actually looks like my hair on my day off!!

I also have Light Brown, Brutal Brunette & Tawny - all reds!

I agree 100%. Save the cute names for the name of the style.

As a brunette, I've worn everything from brown to mocha to dark chocolate to walnut.

Yes and if the store doesn't have colour demos I'm never even sure if I'm buying the correct colour I'd want to wear. They look so different on the tiny square on the wall compared to that whole huge thing on your head!

Casandra - some designers actually think light brown = red? The mind boggles! o.O

black's just as bad. I have no idea from maker to maker just what the difference between Licorice, Coal, Midnight and Raven will be. sometimes you get Jet involved too.

and some fools seem to think that "black" actually is "really dark brown" and that's why I'm happy I bought ETD textures and can redo it.

LMFAO - I guess that question was thoroughly answered, Ali! ;P
