Choppy a-line: I would go with warmer colors, whether trying this as blonde or brunette. Does seem to have a 'sprightly' or perky quality. I'm thinking a 1/3 or 1/4 would totally rock this. And I know a red head could really do it justice, especially with some highlights in there. Props to all my gingers... alas I am not one of you, but I love you all the same.
