Bonus: Tips and tricks for adding some bright color to your dark hair
- If you choose to dye your hair at home, remember that after the procedure, your dark hair will most likely not look like the hair in the “after” picture on the box. Bright colors will only show up on dark hair after bleaching, and that’s where you may need the help of a professional colorist.
- If you are not sure about which color you want, or you are not sure you want it at all, there are harmless ways to change the color of your hair to try it out and see if you like it. For example, you can try a tint, a temporary color, like a chalk or a spray, or colored hair extensions.
- A blackberry hair color looks best when the coloring is performed using the so-called balayage highlighting technique. This freehand dyeing method only lightens some strands of your hair, leaving the roots untouched, and gives your hair a natural look. Later on, the lightened strands are colored using purple hues.
