The article is about someone who went blond as an experiment. I think the highlights would be great on you--but like most other people said, just say no to dying all of it!

Her skin looks really pink with the blonde hair.

Lol. I think I have more fun AND get it done, baby!

Honestly, if I could even somewhat pull off overall blonde hair, I would have done it back when it was really in a few years ago. I think it's hot and fun for a change.

I like!

OK hers might be a little orangey. Check out my highlights album (pw in sig line): http://public.fotki.com/curlilocks/curlilocks_quest/

I think our complexions are similar, and I have had caramel and auburn-ish highlights. If you want more drama than mine, go a little lighter or chunkier. I did mine very thin. These are ones the salon did--too orange for me:
http://public.fotki.com/curlilocks/c...ewhighlights01.
Ok now I know what you mean.I liked the highlights you did in the salon,they are more orangish but for some reason they looked nice,not the way Yasmine's looked.Maybe because yours are thinner?

However I've always done the natural highlights and always preffered the natural,simple,somewhat boring look,and this is the first time I'm thinking about doing something crazy.I would usually go ahead and what I like but as I mentioned earlier I had many blonde highlights done and they look terrible,and now I have no idea how to do the unnatural,chunky blonde highlights in a way that would look ok.I'm trying to find a picture to show the blonde highlights I have now so you would get an idea...

I personally think that some reddish tones would look best w/ your coloring. Maybe coppery or even just a few caramel chunky highlights in front???? Let us know what u do!!!!!

If you're gonna highlight please don't go blonde, do chestnut or a lowlight. the look is fabulous. Brunettes who highlight blonde look weird IMO, unless they lift their base color too.

I second this- with your dark natural hair underneath, it will definelty look like light blonde highlightes and it compliments your skin tone a lot better than platinum.
