I finally found a color that i want to dye my hair! I want to get randomly placed highlights or lowlights in purple.... This is the color i want: http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h226/ellebebe21/hairstyle7.jpg&imgrefurl=http://community.livejournal.com/madradhair/34720289.html&usg=__xOU6U8egV-IMlIf217CkD5liVVA=&h=400&w=320&sz=35&hl=en&start=14&um=1&tbnid=M3Y5oJBSAoqZDM:&tbnh=124&tbnw=99&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dplum%2Bcolored%2Bhair%26hl%3Den%26client%3Dsafari%26rls%3Den-us%26sa%3DG%26um%3D1

I have naturally brown hair. I should probably go to a salon to get the best results right?

I am also CG are there CG dyes out there in this color?

    Feria makes a shade called Chocolate Cherry that is pretty close to that shade and there are a few others with more red. I used to get my boyfriend to paint streaks in my hair and it turned out nice. It wasn't dramatic streaks because my hair was already auburn at the time. I would hand him a 1/2 inch wide paint brush (I wanted it chunky) and he did one layer at a time. I sectioned it off first with clips. It wasn't dramatic streaks because my hair was already auburn at the time. I would definitely test strand first because you just never know how dark or shocking it may turn out. You could also use a temporary color first just to see if you like it. They sell quite a few at Sally Beauty Supply.
    Mod CG since April of 2007.

    That's what's known as a purple rinse over dark hair. Basically, the dye isn't light enough to tint the hair itself but it affects the highlights. To get the color of the model, unless you already have really dark hair, you'll need a double process...

    One - dye your hair a VERY dark brown
    Two weeks later- dye over it with - http://www.manicpanic.com/best%20hair%20color/ultraviolet.html
