Wanting to change your hair color always requires some consideration and especially if your desired change is something dramatic – like going from dark to light. It’s certainly a big decision to go blond and there are some major considerations before you take the plunge.
If you laid out hair colors on a scale from 1 to 12, the darkest level of black would be 1 and the lightest blond would be 12. Among the many things to consider before going blond is the your natural hair color, which is the starting point on the scale for the purpose of going blond and eventually returning to your natural shade. It may be a long time before you'll get to see your natural color again, so perhaps clipping a small strand off and keeping it safe as a color sample may not be such a bad idea. Otherwise, when asked by your colorist what color level you'd like to return to, you won't remember.
