#1: bleaching vs. coloring
so im doing highlights sometime in the near future...i have dark dirty blonde hair that's pretty long (almost to my waist, straightened) and i want to add some honey-golden highlights. do i bleach it? or do i add honey-golden color? or will the color even process since my hair's darker than the color i want it to be? i know bleaching is extremely damaging but i'd only be doing it once, whereas i'd have to re-color as the highlights faded, if i was coloring.
