Hi Everyone,
I'm new here.
I'm completely confused by my hair colour vs skin colour vs tone etc.
I grew up a red-head, although the colour has significantly faded over
the years (I'm 45 now).  Growing up a red-head, naturally I thought I
was a "warm" skin tone, but suddenly my stylist has revealed that I'm
a "cool" tone (summer by season).  For a lot of years, I tried to find a
store bought red that matched my natural colour and had success.
I usually chose a medium strawberry of some sort.
Over the last year, I've taken to using a light golden blonde.  My hair
was getting fairly yellow, and it took me a while to really notice.  Now
that I'm realizing I have cool skin tones, I tried an ultra light ash blonde.
The end result has been what I'd say is a fairly neutral light blonde.  My
roots are growing in, and the underside of my hair matches them, and
I'd call it a fairly medium ash blonde. 
What I'd like to do, is bring the light shade back down to the same level
as the roots and underhair.  Is there a way for me to do this with store
bought?  I understand that putting an ash on a golden runs the risk of
turning green, and I was lucky that didn't happen last time.   I guess I'm
asking for help in turning all my hair the same colour, and I'd like to achieve a neutral medium blonde.  Can someone please help?

What about this colour, as it has golden tones, this will cancel out any ash tone you have in your hair, and avoid the green hue that can sometimes happen.
