It's been a while since I posted to this thread, but since I decided to do something that's asked about lots (going more than four shades lighter at home), I thought I'd post pics before I asked my questions.
I started here (hi-octane orange over faded red and black hair)
After three days of chemicals and a few protein treatments, here I am
It turned out to be the hardest hair color EVER to take a picture of...as you can tell by my washed out skin and greenish tinge to the hair. The one on the left is closest to my real color. I think it came out pretty good considering I saved 100 bucks doing it at home. (there's not that big of a color difference all the way down the hair either...my camera's just stupid)
I don't know if I love it or hate it, we'll see once I figure out what kinda make-up and clothes go with such a drastic color change...(suggestions for that would be very welcome)...although my hair isn't damaged at all considering, a haircut is in order... Would it look ok if I cut my hair off right at the shoulder and then shortened up the layers just a little? Maybe trim the bangs too?
Sorry to ramble...it's just that I haven't had blondish hair in more than three years...and I'm finding myself a little lost...THANKS FOR READING
