I got black hair black eyebrows I want my hair 100% blonde as if I were born blonde. But would not my black eyebrows be some sort of giveaway that I'm actually a darkhaired dude? I've heard of eyebrows being dyed but will it look natural? I think blue contacts will help too
Any input will help

If you're going with blue contacts, I suggest getting blue eyebrows to match. Seriously though, I'd just reccomend keeping your hair black. Hair dyed blond that used to be black looks fake (not to mention the roots)...kind of that eminem-y yellow color.

I've got to agree with Versace about the eminem look. It's a fine line between looking natural and looking like Mr. Shady. Personally, I would say keep your hair truly natural. If you do decide to go through with all of it, have your eyebrows at least lightened. Many blondes have somewhat darker eyebrows, so you don't have to make them as light as your hair, but easing the difference would be a good idea.

FYI - I am a blonde (used to be a towhead, although it's gotten a little darker as I age), but I've always had darker eyebrows.

I got the idea from Wade Robson. He has black/dark brown eyebrows and blonde hair: http://www.waderobson.com/ http://www.waderobson.com/home.php http://www.waderobson.com/about.php Best Photo: http://www.waderobson.com/film.php CTGuy: I'm not talking attitude. I'm talking Looks. Also fixing how I look is waaay faster then curing social anxiety disorder. NavyStyles/VersaceMan: I don't like black. I want to look White or as unasian as possible. Plus Blonde in my opinion looks 1000000x better than Black. But advice noted. Think I'll do the wade robson black eyebrows then see how i look. If theres a problem then i'll color the eyebrows too or something heh

Are you Asian? If you are, I'd reccomend keeping your hair dark. Going blonde would just look way too fake; like you are trying too hard in the name of fashion. What is your skintone? I could understand why you would want to change it if you have very pale skin and very dark hair, but many men (myself included) would rather be Italian-looking; darker-skinned and have dark hair. If you are in fact the latter, I'd stick with what you've got.

Assuming that you are Asian... which you hint at

I want to look White or as unasian as possible.
don't dye your hair blonde -- especially if you want it to look "natural".

I am:

30% Chinese
25% Porteuguese
20% White (Scottish/Dutch)
12.5% Filipino
12.5% Spanish

Not too much slant on the eyes there as you can see. But I don't care if it doesn't look natural I still think blond beats black anyday but hey when I actually get it done I'll let you guys check it out and I guarantee it'll look good like Wade Robson hahaha

The problem with coloring your eyebrows would be your original color returning/roots showing. You would have to keep using the dye every time even a bit of black returns, because roots would look worse on your eyebrows than they do on your hair. Hence, why most guys and girls don't bother to dye their brows.

Not to mention if it gets in your eyes, you'll see a cool milky yellow color, followed by a lifetime of nothingness. You'll go blind, man. Seriously. Only do it if you have it done professionaly.

Don't think about sueing, either. Most hair dyes have a "warning: don't attempt to color eyebrows" sort of thing on them.

you guys are right it sounds kind of a scary thing to do. Think I'll go wade robson style http://www.waderobson.com and just go with the blonde and if the dark roots show it won't be as bad becuase it matches with the eyebrows

I think this little story makes a vague attempt to make the very important point that what makes people stylish and sexy is not so much specific attributes or clothes, but instead people's attitudes
This is a good point to make. I remember a really attractive g/f of a friend of mine once saying that the sexiest thing was confidence.
