There are several ways to lift dark brown hair to a lighter brown color. In every instance, the best results will be achieved by a professional hairstylist in a salon. Stylists are trained to understand how hair reacts to all types of hair color chemicals, and they have a wide range of color shades on hand to achieve your desired result.
Most dark hair has warm, underlying pigment that is revealed when your stylist applies the lightener or hair color with ammonia that is necessary to lighten hair. If your desired shade is warm-like golden or red brown-this is no problem. If you prefer a cooler result, like sandy or light ash brown, your stylist may have to tone your hair with a cool overlaying shade that will balance the unwanted warmth. Another option when lightening hair is to ask your stylist to apply lots of very fine highlights. The highlights will make your overall shade look lighter without dying all of your hair.
