Have dark hair but find yourself wishing you had the color of one of Lindsay Lohan's lighter hairstyles? Depending on how dark your original hair color is, your stylist may need to pre-lighten your hair first. This process will quickly remove all unwanted pigment and take your hair to a lighter “yellow” state. Don't worry if your hair looks very yellow at first as this is the underlying pigment in all blondes. Next a blonde color with an additive to tone the yellow pigment will be applied over top.
Always remember, though, that if your hair is naturally dark then going much lighter like on of Lindsay Lohan's hairstyles requires a lot of upkeep. Hair grows at a rate of approximately a half an inch a month and that means you'll have that much in dark roots as well so plan frequent visits to your stylist for touch ups.
To avoid your new blonde color going brassy make sure to use a shampoo and conditioner especially formulated for blondes. They will contain a mild toner that will keep your hair color from going brassy.
