Getting hair done professionally after years of home color

I know this is probably a stupid question but here it goes..

So, I havn't gotten my hair done by a pro in about 5 years. It has been ultra blonde to dark brown. Right now I made the transition from blonde to brown and I like it for now. However, summer is coming up soon and I'm really wanting to get highlights put in. And I am DONE with coloring my hair myself.

My main question is, will they be able to put highlights in my hair over the color I have done myself? or will I have to get it stripped?( I pray

    I too have been coloring my hair for yrs and I had highlights put in at a salon last spring. It worked beautifully over my home-dyed hair.
