Caramel Calling…

I am writing this post with Scott Cornwalls Colour B4 in my hair and hoping it will lift my colour enough to work towards a lovely caramel switch for spring/summer.
I have always wanted to do this properly but every time I have tried it it has ended up flat and boring looking… I think maybe once I have my base colour this time I may take the plunge and actually make a visit to the salon. Big money though and I really loathe spending £££ on stuff like that. I know many will disagree with me but I figure I’ve made enough mistakes to have learned a thing or too surely…
So this is what I’m looking at right now, a light-medium brown with caramel highlights and possibly chocolatey lowlights.. what will actually turn out is another thing altogether.
So what colour are you guys turning as the weather warms?

    I love the look of caramel hair, it's such a flattering colour for most people (just not me) x

    I love the hairspiration. Jennifer Aniston has always given me hair envy. I've spend way too much on hair dye at the salon, Iā€™m growing mine out and 'trying' to embrace my natural colour. lol.

    I love colour b4! Its amazing.
    I had exactly the same idea as you.
    A few months back I used colour b4 to remove my red and then dyed my hair a dark champagne blonde.
    But it was so dull, flat and boring.
    Totally not what I had in mind,
    so yday I got a head of highlights and it looks fabulous now!

    I am looking to go a bit lighter as the weather warms…after going in and out of many salons (a number were pretty damn rude) I finally managed to find one that wasn't too horrific in price for hi-lights.

    This is what I'm aiming for :

    A lovely mix of caramel blondes and some lighter browns but hopefully still keeping in some of my darker browns!

    OMG the pure excitement i had when i saw this post…I've resently had my hair stripped professionaly and my hair is a bright red colour and i wanted to go blonde…my hair now is a reddy brown? do you think using the colour b4 will help or be too damaging on my poor hair haha.
    let me know how it worked for you? x

    This is going to be so beautiful on you! I can't wait to see the pictures :). I have light medium brown grown out roots and more auburn version growing out below it, so I'm thinking of doing some blond highlights maybe? Hmm!

    I am in the process of doing the same for Spring/Summer. I always love the way it looks on JLO. I will attempt to do it myself again in a couple of weeks. I think it is going to be a lot of upkeep!
