From blonde to brunette: my hair color journey!

I have been a blonde my whole life, minus one time coloring my hair in college almost black. I didn’t know a solid dark color over blonde hair in one setting would make it look flat, dull and inky so naturally I just thought dark hair wasn’t for me since that didn’t look good. fast forward to having worked as a hairstylist for 10 years and having an understanding about how hair color works, I decided to give it another try, the right way.

This is how blonde I previously was, and pretty much have been for a long time. my hair was almost all decolorized so i needed to slowly fill it to start going to my desired chocolate brown shade. I am also one to freak out if my hair changes too drastically too fast, I need time to adjust.

This is about where I stayed with my color for about a month before taking my color to where it is now. I rooted it out with a level 7 to start adding depth and darkness while keeping some blonde. Each time I colored my hair, I’d drag the root color a little lower.

When I felt ready for another step, I toned the mids and ends a warm golden medium blonde while dragging the root even further down. I have kept the front face framing pieces lighter than the base so I wouldn’t feel too dark all over.

This was the last step before fully adding in one level darker, a 6gg from Kenra color.

And here we are! My final color. i hope you enjoyed seeing this transformation and if you are thinking about changing your hair color, just take it slow so you can enjoy the process vs freak out.
