Think blondes have more fun? Check out these sultry brunettes and think again. According to colorist Marie Robinson, whose clients include Natalie Portman and Anne Hathaway, the best shades of brown and black right now are natural-kicked up a notch.
If you want to lighten your brunette shade to blonde it’s best to make an appointment with a professional stylist. You will stand a much better chance of achieving the precise shade that you have in mind, and of walking out of the salon with an even application and without damage to your hair. Your stylist will use a lightener to lift the dark color pigment out of your hair.
Depending on how dark your natural color is, she may have to apply the lightener more than once. The lightener will lift your hair to an orange or yellow shade, then your stylist will deposit the desired tone. She may also opt to apply lots of extremely fine highlights rather than lighten all of your hair.
