Thanks for the advice
I'll definitely take it into serious consideration. I really don't want orange hair so I'm thinking the salon is my best bet - as you mentioned. My goal is to lighten my hair to a medium ash brown if possible.
I'd be happy with that.
If I don't end up with the results I desire, I might just have to go back to dark. I love the dark hair... but I'm thinking a change would be a fun idea for summer. I'm one of those types of people who need to take a bit of time to get used to change... so I'm trying not to go too drastic.
We will see what happens though
Thanks again for your helpful comment!
