Different Types of Dark Hair
If you have very dark hair, then you can also consider using a hair dye that will help to lighten your natural hair color. Another way to make the blonde highlights blend is to accompany them with highlights of a darker shade, like dark brown, chocolate, ash, etc.
Selecting Highlight Colors
People who fall in the cool category can have a dark brown, bronze, or brown complexion after tanning. They can also have a pale complexion with pink or no undertones, medium complexion with golden undertones, olive complexion, like Asians and Latinos, or medium complexion with light pink color in the cheeks.
Their eye color can be blackish brown, grayish blue, dark blue, dark brown, or hazel with light flecks in it. People who fall in this category have to be very careful when going for blonde highlights in their hair. They should go with the dark shades of blonde and limit the number of streaks to 12.
The highlights can also be accompanied with some more highlights of ash color.People who come in the warm category can have eye color which can be green, greenish-blue, golden brown, or hazel eyes with brown or golden colored flecks. Their skin tone can be brown with pink or golden undertones, ruddy, freckled, or pale with peach or golden undertones.
You can mix these red or brown highlights with the blonde highlights on dark hair and create an attractive multi-tonal effect.
Caring for Colored Hair
To maintain the dyed hair, try to prevent exposing it to direct sunlight. Also, wash your hair with shampoos that are especially made for colored hair. To moisturize or condition, use a conditioner suited for colored tresses. If you have opted for a haircut, you will need to visit a stylist every three months to maintain it.
If you are skeptical about how your hair will look with blonde highlights, then use a photo editing software to get a preview. Also, before getting the highlights, talk to your stylist about the right shade of blonde that will go with your complexion so that you don't look pale or dusty.
