Stay focused on the goal. You want to enhance the good stuff nature already gave. Consult your stylist about changing your hair color, but seek two or three different professional opinions, because stylists frequently will advise the most expensive color treatment rather than the best.
Never color your hair on an impulse or whim. Every girl knows that nothing makes her feel so wonderfully feminine and flirty as great hair; but you also must remember that nothing makes a girl feel more ridiculous than new hair gone terribly wrong. Use your powers of observation and critical skills, looking at cuts and colors you like on other girls. Study the shapes of their faces and colors of their skin. If theirs resemble yours, their color treatment may work for you. If not, keep searching.
As you compare and contrast the benefits of single-process versus highlights, remember that hair—especially blonde hair—mixes at least five or six different shades. Some single-process treatments look spectacular; others look fake as three-dollar bills. If this is your first experiment with coloring your hair, go with two shades of highlights, and have a professional do it.
