Want to add a couple of colors to my hair?
Hi! I am 16 years old and I've had this thought in my head for a while that I want to dye my hair a couple of different "out there" colors. I have naturally dark brown hair with golden highlights in it. I want to add some like green, blue and purple streaks to my hair. Now, I don't want to do this all over my hair. I was just thinking of doing underneath my hair if that makes sense? I just want to do a section in the back of my hair underneath so that it is not that noticeable, but it's still there. I don't want them like highlights underneath, but dye a section of hair those actual colors. I don' t know, I was thinking about it and I would really like some advice on it before I do it. I would be getting it professionally done as well.

Maybe try wearing extensions to see if you'd like the colors

I think it could be really cute, especially since youíre young. Just make sure that youíre parents are okay with it first. I have naturally black hair and I bleach sections of it and dye it purple (and sometimes magenta) with manic panic and punky colors. If youíre inexperienced its always better to go to a professional. Just make sure that the person knows what theyíre doing. Donít just go to the random hair salon on the corner and let them dye youíre hair. Do some research before you decide on a salon. Talk to the colorist; make sure he or she knows what you want. Bring pictures that are similar to how you want your hair to turn out. This is really important, especially when you want unnatural colors.

Since youíre hair is dark brown, it is likely that they will have to bleach it to get blue and purple to show up. Bleach can be damaging, especially if you donít take good care of your hair. If youíre unsure about taking the plunge, you could always try extensions. Wear them for a little while and see how you like it. You can always take them out if you decide itís not for you. You can buy pre colored hair, or you can get a blond shade and dye it yourself with manic panic. That way you can customize the color. You have a ton of options. Just do a little research and decide what is best for you. Good luck!
