Posted on

1. "Colour doesn't work on brunette hair."

This blue-and-black-haired beauty would beg to differ.

2. "Bright colours don't really show up."

These plaits are dazzling though.

3. "There's nothing worse than dark roots and coloured hair."

I think this picture proves you wrong.

5. "You shouldn't spoil your normal hair colour by dyeing it."

But it looks so damn pretty!

6. "Green hair will make you look like a witch."

Instagram: @bleachlondon

Not really, but anyway witches are pretty fucking cool.

7. "You won't look ~right~ if you're not a brunette."

Instagram: @dyeddollies

True, you'd look AMAZING with rose-coloured hair.

8. "Your natural hair colour will always show through."

This girl was definitely not born with mermaid hair.

9. "If you're brunette, you can only dye your hair one shade lighter."

Instagram: @bleachlondon

This photo says: not true.

10. "Coloured hair and dark eyebrows are all wrong."

Instagram: @dyeddollies

They're 100% spot-on, actually.

11. "You can't achieve subtle colour when you've got dark hair."

Instagram: @bleachlondon

Judging by this spectrum of blue-green-aqua-emerald shades, that's total rubbish.

12. "It's hard to be professional when you've got coloured hair."

Yeah? Try telling Lily Allen that.

13. "Colourful hair will clash with your clothes."

But only in a good way.

14. "There's no way a brunette can pull off rainbow hair."

Instagram: @dyeddollies

Um, wrong.

15. "You'll never get your old hair back once you dye it."

Instagram: @edeebeau

But I'll get this new hair that looks so crazy pretty.

16. "Hair colour just works much better on blondes."

Instagram: @edeebeau

Dark-haired girls can be blondes too, tho.

17. "I like it more when your hair's natural."

Instagram: @dyeddollies

But it looks so damn good when it's emerald green.

18. "Coloured hair only looks good when it's freshly washed."

Instagram: @bleachlondon

Wrong again.

19. "If you've got dark hair, you can never go blonde."

Instagram: @blackhairrocks

This woman just proved how wrong you are.

20. "Dark hair looks weird with colour."

Instagram: @bleachlondon

Ladies and gentlemen, behold: dark hair with rainbow colours looking insanely awesome.

21. "A brunette girl with dyed blue hair will just look brash."

Instagram: @bleachlondon

But how about this barely-there blue denim look?

22. "There is no way a dark-haired girl can go pale pink."

Instagram: @thelondoncurls

This lady would not agree with such nonsense.

23. "Just face facts, brunette girls, your hair will always be brown."

Instagram: @auracolorist

How about brown and peach as a compromise?

24. "Once a brunette, always a brunette."

But sometimes a silver-violet, too.
