    Soooooo.....

    My natural hair colour is medium ash brown, i put cyber purple on top of it but i have a very warm pinkish complexion so it looked terrible (red tones don't suit me) and i then put a bittersweet chocolate on top of that, so now it's a very very very dark brown.

    But definitely not black. I love black hair because now every girl has decided if she isn't blonde she'll randomly die, i am unique and the only one in uni with healthy, shiny hair and loads of money from not bleaching it all the time.

    But i am fashion conscious and have had my haircut in gorgeous wavy lob and just want to switch it up a little for summer. I'm thinking some warm brown highlights, maybe copper- NOT red. I don't want blonde highlights. How do you put highlights in?

    Do those cap things work?

    You want to start by stripping the colours you've already put on.

    But you'll get a much better result if you start with your hair as close to it's natural colour as possible.

    You just said your hair is dark brown.

    Anyway - the only thing that will work for you if you want to get brown highlights is to either strip the colour from where you want the highlights and then put brown hair dye over it. Or bleach them a little bit, and then put a dye over the bleached highlights.
