    So as you can see, I've got pretty yellow'y/brassy blonde hair. My roots are coming through, and you'll also notice my natural hair is almost entirely grey (I went grey at 17. Sucks to be me, right?). I've had this hair colour for about 2 years now and I'm sick of it- can anyone give me advice as to what might look better? Or how to get a better shade of blonde? I don't even know where to start! Should I bleach my roots and then tone? Should I try and smudge out the roots with a box dye and tone? I'm so overwhelmed because it needs SO much help.

    Any advice would be massively appreciated.

    You do really suit the blonde, so maybe just try and fix the brassy aspect of it? I would consider seeing a hairdresser to see what might work best for you, but there are purple shampoos and products like that that can evan out the hair colour a bit. You could bleach and try and go a little lighter, but it'd dry out your hair and there's a decent chance it'd end up even brassier, unless you had it done professionally

    Ash/cooleer blondes. Should combat the brassy/yellowy shades at bottom. Depends if you want a block colour from roots. I like a gradual lightening (more natural) - with slightly darker roots NOT ombre. :fluffy:
