So I turned to my trusty friend Google, and my newer friend Bing, in search of some inspiration. The first photo that struck me was one of the newly minted blonde Miranda Kerr. She recently went blonde and looks fab. I love her color because it is not one-dimensional. Since she has a mix of medium and light blonde, much like I have right now, I think I could pull this look off, though I worry that it might not be as flattering on my ultra fair skin. Though now that I look closer at her skin, I'm loving her makeup look too!
Then there is my longtime girl crush, Gwenyth Paltrow. I love her, even if she comes off as cold and snooty sometimes. She has rocked the ultra light buttery blonde hair forever and in my opinion few celebrities can work it quite like she can (except for maybe Reese Witherspoon). I love an ultra light blonde who doesn't look like a bimbo!

Then I saw this image of Uma Thurman and I died. Since I'm doing an updo for my wedding this image really hit me. I would be on cloud nine if my hair looked exactly like this on my wedding day. I guess Uma is also working the non-bimbo light blonde angle. As a side note, I had a professor in college who was good friends with the Thurmans and would tell stories about going on vacation with Uma and her family when she was a kid!

Or I could take it in another direction and go more toward the "brond" look. You know "brond." It's hair that you can't quite tell if its brown or if it's blonde. Jennifer Aniston and Gisele Bundchen are the quintessential bronds.
Decisions, decisions! I love the brond look, but I'm not sure I have the skin tone for it. Jen and Gisele both have that golden tan going on, and let's just say that I bought some new foundation this weekend and my shade was "Fair 0" - the absolute lightest shade Smashbox makes. When I was a kid, my hair was close to the color Gwyneth and Uma have, so maybe that would work for me. But there's something about Miranda Kerr's hair in that picture! Ugg, I can't decide. At least I have some time to make up my mind.
