Wanted colors and my color

I need advice. My hair is a light cool brown dyed with Wella hair color. I want it strawberry blonde like Isla Fisher or Amy Adams (see pic) I do not know in whether to lighten it with a dark blonde first or just dye it a strawberry blonde first? All advice is strongly welcome. Again I'm cool borderline neutral skin tone natural color is a dark ash blonde almost light brown with grey blue eyes. Please help! 💙

That's good news. Nordic blond.. Wow that must be too light. Isn't it? What level or formula you used Titan red 8RG? Love to hear the result. Thanks for sharing.

Mixing
by: J.J.

You can certainly mixing colors to make your own. What levels you mixing 8 and 7? Yes level 8 in strawberry red is quite light and goes toward orange. You taking right steps, but the result will depend on underlying pigments after you do the removal step. You going from cool ash brown to warmer tone. I hope your hair is good condition and you get excellent result :)

So should I mix a dark blonde with the strawberry blonde so it doesn't come out to orange? I want it as close as possible to those colors and they look to have a dark blonde base.

Lighten first

If you want to get best result you need to lighten first and then add strawberry blond. Won't get good result on top of previous color.

They won't give free consult

They won't give free consultation and I'll never go to a salon again they ruined my hair what was supposed to be an easy light brown from blonde they turned to burgundy. So I fixed it and have a light cool brown. Okay with the colors I have up there I need to lighten first or just mix a dark blonde and strawberry blonde together to get the desired result?

Strawberry blonde - Color on Color

This won’t be a simple process to do at home. So if you thinking of box colors you might get disappointed in result. Color will not lift color! The process to get this result first involve the so called soap cap color remover. Add shampoo to hair mix with 2 Caps 20 Volume Bleach, work through hair for 10 min. Water rinse and towel dry. And then apply your desire hair color (strawberry blonde) normally for 45 min. It will be a good idea to get a free professional consult with your colorist first.
