How do you understand blond(e)? I am considered to have dark or golden blond(e) hair (dark blond being very common here, golden and red highlights not quite so). Says so in my passport, even. Looking at hair- coloring products, if it is made in Europe, my hair mostly resembles what is called (dark|golden) blond, but if it is made in the US, my hair is suddenly called brown... but brown hair doesn't bleach in the sun, or does it? t.
