So, onto our next challenge

The winner of this challenge will be invited to be a guest designer for the month of July.

This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
Your Favourite: Blond or Brunette (colour combo wise) (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

Here are the beautiful creations made by our Design Team to get your mojo flowing:

As a brunette myself (I'm ignoring the invading greys!) my default hair colours are Antique Linen, Brushed Corduroy, Vintage Photo, Gathered Twigs. I actually find blonds quite difficult to colour as they seem to end up getting darker as I add more layers!

I have to go with brunette.  Most of the humanoids I colour have auburn or reddish brown hair which stems back to my youth.  I loved having the surprise streaks of fire amongst the brown and have fun adding it to my images. 

Blond for me, I'm blond [silver,grey, sometimes purple] and always loved the many shades of blond, even being blond I still dyed it when I was make it more blond..

I was a brunette once upon a time. Now I am salt and pepper!  I do prefer to colour dark hair, I like the contrast. 

I am not a big fan of colouring people, because I don't like colouring hair. So I don't have a real preference for blond or brown hair. I do often try to colour blond hair, but I most of the times I ruin it because I make everything too dark. So for this challenge I wanted to try to make blond hairs and I think I did pretty well this time.

really do struggle with colouring blond hair whichever colour combo I use and am never really happy with the result, so prefer to colour brunette.  You can get the highlights easier because the pens are that much darker.

Brunette for me as it's what I used to be!! I am letting nature do her "thing" and stopped dying my hair a few years ago as I am actually blessed with an even salt and pepper grey now.

I used to be a brunette, very dark, but in later years it had to have help!  I made the decision to stop colouring it the Christmas before Covid hit us (lockdown was a blessing as no one witnessed the badger phase) and now, weird or what, I'm grey with a blonde tint (natural)

Brunette! I used to be a brunette. I have dyed it for a long time but since 5 years I stopped doing it. But now it's a very nice gray. Sometimes people ask me if it is my own color or if it was done by the hairdresser.

So now it's over to you.
We hope you will join in our challenge and show us your style.
Don't forget, you MUST explain WHY it is your favourite to be eligible to win.

Good luck, and happy crafting.
Hugs from the AYLI girls.
