Yes, I agree. The Spencer girls all had similar sort of colouring, really. Jane had brown hair with some reddish lights, Sarah was more ginger and the young Diana was in between the two, IMO. She lightened her hair a bit when she went to live in London I think, and certainly it was a lighter colour by the time of her engagement. The blonde look of a few years later may well have been at the suggestion of her hairdresser.

Why shouldn't she dye her hair? Most women have done so at some stage....and Diana's natural light brown was pretty enough but not special. Wen she went blonde, she became really beautiful...

I never dyed my hair, I like my natural colour.

Gosh, I've dyed mine. All the colours of the rainbow at one time or another! Diana's choice to go blonde and she looked spectacular. It really suited her.

I'd say most women dye their hair, unless they cant afford it or are very happy with the colour they have.. I had a friend who had very dark hair.. who wanted to be blonde ad she dyed it fairer.. My hair is also brown, and I often dyed or highlighted it to a golden blonde..

It probably depends on your social circle. I never dyed my hair nor did many of my family members or friends (and of course that's no evidence that others don't do so, I've had several colleagues who did). And cost or 'being very happy with hair colour' was never a consideration. Just never felt the need to do so, never thought about the question whether a different colour would suit me better...

I mainly associate(d) it with older people who want to camouflage their greying hair or with young people going wild (of course I know there are others who don't fit either group who like to do so - many royals included - but while indeed rather common probably not as common as you think)

I'd say most women I know, who have brown or fairish hair, have gone blonde at some stage.. Darker women no, because they mostly know that to try a lighter colour doesn't suit tehm.. though I had one woman friend who insisted on doing it...

In a handful of family pics..along with chestnut, red highlights are seen, though no one ever referred to her as a redhead.

She wisely avoided any aspect of bleach-blonde. Instead, a wheaten look conveyed the impression of very natural color.

(1983) for example.

Today, July 1st, is Diana Frances' birthday. In 1981 she turned twenty. She was an extremely young twenty on her wedding day of July 29th. Her wedding day brought happiness.

Often, 'anticipation' in a great undertaking can be as fulfilling if not more so, than the actual experience. There were a basket of reasons for her to be optimistic.

"I knew that something profound was coming my way and I was just treading water waiting for it. I didn't know what it was, I didn't know where it was, I didn't know if it was coming next year or next month, but I knew I was different..where I was going."

Got some change today after buying a drink, and the fifty-cent piece had Charles and Diana on it.

(Together in profile, with the Queen in profile facing the other way on the other side.)

Haven't seen one of those for such a long, long time.

Stilll in circulation from 1981 - a bit amazing with all that has happened in those Royal lives since it was first issued.

(And they did a good job of Diana's iconic hairstyle of the time.)

I was a hairdresser at the time. Believe me, that "iconic hairstyle" has much to answer for!!!!!

I thought it was quite nice, for those of us who can't seem to grow long hair...

I agree. Its a hairstyle that I've had quite a bit over the years. It just suits me.

I don't know if it was the natural state or the haircuts, but Diana (and her sisters) had / have nice hair.
