Well first off I love your present color!  Second my hair is only two or threes shades darker than my present color, I am a medium to dark blonde naturally.  I dyed my hair platinum a few years ago, and it was a b*tch to upkeep.  Every 4 to 6 weeks max and I had to get my roots touched up.  It can get very pricey and a bit of a pain....just something to think about it.

Platinum would look great though!

I think your hair looks beautiful now and would also look great ALL blonde! I agree with Haman -- I've always LOVED the look of light hair and dark eyes -- it's one of the best combinations! I don't see any reason why you can't go 100% blonde the first time. I've done it before (only at the salon though). When I did it, the stylst just used permanent dye and my hair lifted to blonde. She also toned it. It really wasn't exactly what I wanted though (too yellow, I prefer platinum) -- she probably should have bleached. Now I just do a heavy bleach hi-light and I'm almost completely blonde. It's a lot easier than going 100% -- I just prefer not to go to the salon so often. I never get sick of it myself. Anyway, good luck! Post a pic when you do it!

I hear it's just harder to keep up platnium specially if your not naturally blonde. I had a hard time keeping my golden color up and keeping it from going brassy, I had a soild blonde color (I naturally have black hair) I would go the same blonde maybe a tad lighter as your chunk you have, it looks really good. I'd go the same color as your chunk, just say I want it this color. :)
Good Luck. Rock on!

Bambilee, I've seen your pictures and I would NEVER have known you weren't a natural blonde! Somewhere on here, I recall you saying something about your hair being "darker" but I thought, if anything, a light brown. Wow! Black? Amazing. You wear the blonde well!

That looks great! It looked great before as well, but the sylist did a great job!  Just be sure to take really good care of your hair. It will be alot dryer, the blonder you get. Also, I had to get a decent amount trimmed off of mine because the ends got pretty dry. I got sick of the upkeep and went dark again, and though it is nice not to have roots, I'm not as happy as I would be with either blonde, or my natural dark brown. I feel like my hair just looks dyed right now, but the condition is great and the color blends perfectly with my roots. I also had to chop off alot of hair. So now I am growing it and getting back to healthy natural hair. I'm sure I will eventually start with the blonde highlights again, until I am all blonde, but for now a change is good. I love yours though. Is you natural color dark brown? The condition still looks good too. Mine started getting frizzy, so I stopped bleaching.

I like it Anitan. Looks really good. So how many trips to the salon before it's the way you want it? I didn't realize it would take more than one. Is it because your hair is long or what? I've been searching for the right color and the right color-ist/stylist for YEARS and everybody that comes on here and posts looks great. I'd be happy if my hair turned out as nice as you alls!   Sigh ...

Anitan -- So did you show your styilst pictures? What did you tell her? Even when I show them pictures they don't get it right! I'm at my wit's end ... trying to learn how to do it myself!
