hair woes

I have been wondering what to do with my hair for quite a while now as I have been red for about 5 months, plus I want to mix it up for summer! I was set on extensions but for a full head of permanent ones (clip-ins are a drag so I sold mine) it is about NZ $1000 for the hair, plus the cost of getting them put in, plus the die and cut. Anyone know where I can get a good deal?
As mentioned here, I was considering getting a colourful colour put in my hair like a bluey, aqua thing, but I think that would work best with long hair. So I have decided, I am going to go my natural colour, which I have intended to do for ages. It is just so much easier in summer - no dying needed, and I want to be a shade of blonde for summer (though I am dark blonde/ash brown now, I used to be white-blond when I was a kid) and it is just so easy maintenance being el-natural! So I am booked in to the hairdresser for a die and trim. But I was thinking, being one colour is a little boring. I hate streaks (no offence) so I was thinking of going my natural colour (see picture below) and then having it blondened at the ends. Like, have it fading into a really light blonde. Because I have wanted the faded look for ages like the Alice Dellal pic below, but once again, I think that looks best with extensions!

Wow, respect if you read this entire rant & rave. haha

Inspiration time:

And in other hair related news, I have gone for the middle part! I suit a bang/front fringe, but sticking with the easy-for-summer theme, I am growing my fringe out which I have had as a side fringe for the past 5 months. And now I am wearing it as a middle part. It looks a bit off-centre in the photos I do realise.

My hair looks quite brown here. It is very faded and I have extreme regrowth! Apologies. Ha ha. And the 'World's Greatest Lover' mug is a gift from friends. Also probably the worlds largest mug.

Thoughts, ideas, opinions?
