• How much does it cost to dye your hair a solid color and get highlights?

    I’m looking to dye my hair brown and get bleached highlights. Around how much should this cost?

    ALSO!!!!! I’m narturally a blonde, what should I do about roots If I dye my hair dark brown? Would I be able to dye it back to blonde over the brown or would that not work?

      Dyeing it back might take a few applications. You probably wouldn’t be able to get the level of blonde you want in just one . . . at least not without damaging your hair.

      As for the costs of dyeing a solid color and adding highlights, it depends on where you live and where you go. I live in Chicago and for me to have my hair dyed a solid color with highlights added, I pay $175.

      The price will vary depending on what area of the country you are in.
      I suggest you call the salons in your area and ask.
      I’ve been a licensed cosmetologist for thirty years.
      Hope this helps.

      To dye or not to dye? It’s an age-old question. Bleach-happy Ancient Greek heroes reddened their hair into a fiery symbol of courage, while their Roman counterparts used natural dyes to darken their locks. During the 1700s, French women used powder to tint their tresses shades of blue, yellow, pink and white (punk rock pioneers). Today, about half of all American women color their hair, and men are getting in on the game in record numbers.

      Due to high salon prices (or temporary bouts of creativity), more and more people are dyeing their own hair. You’ve seen these people walking around-they can usually be identified by tufts of fried orange hair peeking out from beneath large hats. But a home-hair-colorist’s best weapons against hair dye mishaps are careful planning and knowledge. So whether you’re trying to bring back the color of your youth or are simply interested in trying something new, SoYouWanna. com is happy to help you dye your own hair.

      We understand that home hair coloring is much less expensive than going to a professional colorist (a box of hair dye usually ranges from $5 to $10, whereas a salon coloring usually costs $40 and up, depending on the method used and the length of your hair). However, if you screw it up, you’ll end up paying for the cost of the home coloring AND cost of the salon (which is usually much higher when fixing already botched hair . . . Ouch, says the pocketbook).

      While companies are constantly improving their home hair coloring products and making them easier to use, the following list outlines the times that you should go to a salon and leave your hair in the hands of a professional:

      Your hair is severely damaged. It breaks easily, and your brush and bathroom floor have more hair on them than your head does. Damage can come from many different things, including:

      Excessive brushing and tearing of the hair (this can also come from constantly pulling it back in rubber bands).

      Too much heat. You’ve heard the drill before. Keep your use of the blow dryer and the curling iron to a minimum.

      Sun damage. Skin isn’t the only part of your body that needs protection from UV rays. Summer sun worshipers are especially at risk for hair damage, but UV rays damage your hair every time you step outside into daylight-even in the winter. No, you don’t need to wear a hat everywhere you go, but definitely be conscious of the sun’s rays and cover up if you’re going to be out in the sun for a while.

      Over-perming. You should never re-perm hair until the original perm has grown all the way out. A normal perm damages hair, so a perm on top of a perm is a double whammy.

      Over-washing. Yes, washing your hair too much can dry out your scalp, cause flakes, and lessen the natural oils on your head that protect your hair’s roots.

      You want to lighten your hair more than three shades. If you are a brunette and want to go blonde, get thee to a salon. Even if your hair doesn’t appear to have any red tones in it, all dark hair contains some red pigment. Therefore, lightening your hair in one step will most likely turn your hair an unattractive shade of orange that hasn’t been popular since the days of Queen Elizabeth I. In this case, you’ll need to undergo what is known as a “double process. ” The first step is to “strip” the hair of its pigment. The second step is to “add” the new color of choice. It sounds complicated because it is complicated – there’s a high likelihood of orange-y results. A professional colorist can prevent this by using a toner to cancel out redness, thus providing a more attractive golden hue.

      You’re feeling dramatic and you want to do something crazy, like go from blonde to black. At least go to the salon for a consultation about what colors will look good with your skin tones. You’ll save yourself some heartache if you know in advance that burgundy is a color better reserved for your wine than for your hair.

      You’ve already colored your hair, you screwed up, and you want to fix it. Don’t stay in hiding, attempting again and again to correct your own mistake. The more chemicals you put in your hair, the worse it’s going to get, and the more expensive it will be for a stylist to return you to your beautiful self.

      with dyine your hair everything works. but you could just buy a brown fixer upper kit. if you get all this done pro itll cost around 100 but if you buy the stuff and do it yourself it will onnly cost ten bucks, for the 2 different boxes. and yes you can dye your ahir blonde over again, uit just won’t be as light as before, so be sure to us ea shampoo that works for dyed hair so the color lasts longer.

      Your best bet would be to do your highlights in reverse. . . instead of bleaching the hair in the foil; you would use the darker color instead. You can also have portions bleached in foil. Going solid is too much trouble and you most likely will end up red. A good foil job will cost about 150. 00 – 250. 00 depending on the length.

      I would suggest you have low-lights put in your hair if you’re already a blonde. Low-lights work like hi-lights, but it is done with a darker color than your natural color. It looks great on girls who are naturally blonde. I have low-lights myself. Depending on your hair length low-lights should cost between $45 and $65 and could be more if your hair is long. It’s going to cost much less to get one color of low-lights put in your hair than to color your hair one color and then do hi-lights, not to mention how much easier it will be on your hair not to use bleach. Plus, as your roots grow out it won’t be as noticeable as it would be if you colored your hair brown all over and then did hi-lights. If you decide to take my advice and your hair is at least medium length, I would tell the stylist to foil (weave) the color in. It looks much more natural that way. If it’s short, then just use a cap and pull the hair through.

      Good luck.
