    They will either strip your hair and put a demi/possibly some foils over the top or perhaps go slower with full/half heads of foils.

    You will need to commit to a weekly at home treatment regime to keep your hair in a different state.

    Im not trying to be rude, simply giving you the same advicr I would to a client in my chair that I've learnt over my 8+ years in the industry experience

    Tbh if anyone tells you they can get you ash or platinum blonde in one go run. a . mile!

    Just curious: if you have been dying it etc for years and then allow it to grow out back to its original colour would there be the same problem with then dying in one go?

    I have medium brown hair naturally. I had a very dark brown/black dye in it a few years ago. I went back to blonde in two or three visits. I think from memory it was quite light after two, blonde after three. No damage. I only have foils, an all over blonde turns my hair orange even when it's already light.

    If you allowed absolutely all of the existing colour to grow out, and by this I mean continually cutting it off (or say only had maybe 5inchs tops of dyed hair left on your ends) then yes going lighter would be a lot easier as the majority of your hair is natural therefor your not trying to lighten and then counteract the orange pigment.

    But depending on how long your hair is it can be quite a long process to do so it depends on what your happy to commit to.

    It would take awhile as my hair is quite long and there's only about an inch of regrowth. It's not really blue black right now more dark brown, as I said hair dyes don't hold to my hair well anymore. Which is why i want a change, getting bored with it always going back to that brown colour. Is it true if you cut your hair it grows faster? Maybe I should just go with a nice hair cut for now and get it layered or something

    This is my hair now, it looks darker in this photo though (please don't quote will delete later) you can see my natural colour at the top (probably less than an inch regrowth actually) would blonde even suit? I have no idea

    Im gunna be completely honest and say that by looking at your hair that going blonde is not going to be easy at all.

    I've gone from your colour to blonde twice. It took months and I ended up cutting it short as it was unhealthy. Took me four months or so.. I wanted to do it properly. Now, five years later I am white platinum blonde and I'll never change it again.. love it

    That may not look dark to you, but its not just that its dark, its the layers upon layers of colour which make it a long and complicated process.

    But yes it would take a long time to grow out, and cutting your hair doesnt make it grow faster it simply keeps it in good condition while growing.
