Agreed! With any darker hair color, you will need BLEACH, not dye, if you are going for a light blonde color. I was able to get my naturally medium brown hair a golden blonde one time at a particular salon with dye, but every other time, they have used bleach. I get my highlights a lighter blonde color and don't like them too golden or they don't show up enough for my taste since I get it highlighted pretty heavily. I also get toner put on my hair to take out any brassy tones. Some salons do cost more to use bleach and/or toner, but many charge the same rate as the regular highlights.

I have colored my own hair at home many times just fine, but I know I wouldn't be good at highlighting it myself, so I just go to a salon. It can be pricey since my hair is long and thick, but I know I wouldn't do a good job highlight the back of my hair on my own. I go to the Toni & Guy hair salon chain. Unfortunately it can be hard to find the right colorist/stylist. I always take photos with me to show my colorist. I just started going to this location and luckily they got it right how I wanted on the first try!
