I want to get highlights

I have a couple of questions first.

I know it probably will dry out my hair but I hope I can fix it with DTs and good conditioning?

Finally, what color?

    I say go for it!

    I recently had my hair bleached all over to a platinum-golden shade. And it's really not that bad as long as I deep condition more often, and follow the CG method religiously!

    I looked at your pictures and your hair is gorgeous. I would say light brown highlights? or maybe a medium brown? I guess it depends how big of an impact you want to make.

    And a really important question to ask yourself is - are you going to be doing partial highlights? full? going to a professional?

    Thanks for the reply!

    Looking at these, http://www.metrobeauty.com/files/8c/8c748905-65b8-bd7b-d587-2e268b18688c.jpg , I like medium coppery blonde,dark blonde, medium golden blonde and light brown. Most of them would be a pretty big impact I think but not so much the light brown.

    I will be doing it at a salon, and they do it with a cap, so I'd say that's full? =/ Sorry I'm clueless on that stuff.

    A cap? If you're looking for some kind of an impact, I really dont think that you should get the cap done. From personal experience, ALWAYS stick with the foil! Maybe more damage, but will look better in the long run.

    And as for the colors, I think a mixture of dark blonde and light brown would look great on your hair.
    Medium golden blonde is too yellow, and the rest are too orange.

    But these are just my opinions, you are the official decision maker! :P
