i have black hair and have ALWAYS had the hardest time dying it. however, i've always thought about dying it blonde and recently have actually been thinking about going through with it.

of course i wouldn't do it myself but was wondering if anyone else with dark hair has successfully done this without it looking orange or pee yellow and has it been worth it.

also, i've been contemplating whether or not i can pull it off or should just forget about it.

go to a salon and get it done. they'll put hair bleach with special toners in it so that it wont turn an off color and then they'll dye it to the blonde you want.

My hair is naturally blonde, but I always dye it dark brown. I've went backwards a few times, never had the orange or yellow problem.

I'll just say.. make sure it's something you want, it's pointless to do it and then change it in two days.

also, this may be a dumb question but what about the eyebrows? is there a special dye or do i just rock the dark eyebrows with the unnatural hair?

yes there is special dye. i dont recommend it since some people have allergic reactions on their faces that they wouldnt on their scalp. many people have dark eyebrows with blonde hair, me included. i'm german and most of my family has light hair with dark eyebrows and its natural.

You can dye your eyebrows to match the hair color, although I see that a lot of people don't do this. When the eyebrows are too dark, it looks ridiculous.

i agree with this and mine are definitely dark. my actual hair color is black so it's really difficult. i have dyed it several times before so it's definitley not the first time it's been colored. i have just never dyed it so light before and was curious how it would work out or if i would just end up looking like a freak with blonde hair. hah.

I know exactly what you're talking about. In every picture taken of me, you can see the roots and it looks retarded. It doesn't help that my hair doesn't hold color at all.

Well, you don't have to make your eyebrows the same exact color as your hair. There can be a slight difference, so just lighten them a few shades.

i keep saying i want to try getting my hair done blonde, but i'll never do it because i'm afraid of how bad it will look once the red roots start growing in.

don't do it. the drastic color change will be bad for your hair. plus you look gorgeous with black hair. it's a very unique look i think.
