How did Rachel Maddow get her hair this color?

Please look at her infamous high school pearl necklace photo where dark brunette Rachel is a blonde.

How did she get her dark hair that color? It's not platinum blonde from a severe bleaching; it's actually pretty and a nice warm shade.

Have you heard of hair dye, dear?

What's that on her head?

It's probably been years since Rachel got a pearl necklace.

You can't dye dark hair blonde, dear dumbass.

Does her carpet match her drapes?

I am picturing lots of fuzzy matted shag and faded canvas with metal grommets either way.

She's actually a blonde and dyes her hair dark.

OP, my sister has brown hair but it was that same blonde color in high school. She bleached her hair slightly and then spent alot of time in the sun. Rachel Maddow looks very pretty and happy in high school.

"You can't dye dark hair blonde,"

News to my mother & a slew of Italian-American aunts & cousins.

My hair was naturally blond in high school and started getting darker as I got into my 30s and became a mousey brunette. Now, I dye it a shade darker to hide the gray.

I have dark hair and I dye it blonde - you use one product to strip the old colour out and then a second one to put whatever new colour you want in. It's hard on the hair though, no problem with my crop but I wouldn't recommend it for anyone with a mane!

Many people get darker hair as they grow up.

What R15 is describing is double-process blonding. The hair is lightened with bleach. Another product, a toner, dyes the the final shade of blonde.

Her hair looks like it was bleached in the sun. It's darker on top and toward the roots, in areas that haven't seen as much sun as the ends.

OP, you're seriously asking how a brunette adult could have been a blonde teenager?

There are very few blond/blonde adults. Not none, but very few. Almost all blonds become brunettes as they age.

She might have lightened it in that picture (or it might have been summertime), but that doesn't mean she wasn't a natural blonde when she was younger.

In "her" case wouldn't it be more accurate to say "toupee"?

by Anonymousreply 2010/13/2013

You can't dye brown hair blonde. This is what's meant:

Dyeing makes hair darker. Lightening makes hair lighter.

It's just semantics.

Whoever thinks dark hair cannot be dyed blonde has never been to Russia or Greece.

Rachel has never looked like anything but a guy in a wig. Even the high School picture shows a super tomboy. Not a bad thing, but it's the truth. I get a kick out the TV makeup people using drag eye shadow and make-up on her. She handsome and should allowed to be handsome.

[19] Here in the Netherlands (and in Northern Europe in general) there are a lot of adult blondes and most who were blonde as teens stay that way.

It was that color when she bought it the estate sale of the late Howard Cosell.

Yes you can dye dark hair blonde. You can strip all the color out of your hair until it's white actually.

Also- people's hair can change naturally. I was a blonde as a child. My hair naturally darkened to brown as I got older.

In that photo she has a swimmer's neck and shoulders. I'd say her natural color was closer to the roots, and the lighter blonde bleached by the sun and chlorine. My partner has light brown hair until summer then it is very light blonde.

"Her hair looks like it was bleached in the sun."

Her hair looks like her momma took her to a salon before the photo was taken, and tried to femme her up! It doesn't look sun-lightened, sun-lightening leaves the hair streaked and with a variety of colors, hers is the same color on top and close to the neck.

Really, I think this is a salon color. The process of bleaching and tinting the hair is not something a tomboyish high school girl would do well.

WTF? Have you heard of a woman named MADONNA?

PS: you are an imbecile.

by Anonymousreply 3010/13/2013

I think that's her natural color - looks that way. I'll bet she dyes it dark because she thinks it makes her look more "serious."

by Anonymousreply 3110/13/2013

I'd say her current color is natural.

It may have been lighter when she was younger--but not that light.

I agree with R29. It looks like artificially colored, not sun lightened.

No shame in experimenting. I've always had dark brown hair but when I was late teens/early 20s, it varied from blond, light brown, even orange. Granted, the orange was accidental...
