What color high lights would look good with dark hair? I was thinking a reddish auburn color. ?

Image by yeah that’s my question, and this next question is kind of awkward but …


  1. I wouldn’t recommend it.

  2. Hairdresser at your service. Having been in the business for a long time, I find the companies like to control you and make you feel that you can’t deviate from their boxed colours. From experience I find that you can customize formulas and get great results.

  3. If both hair colors are the same brand then it’s okay for you to mix them together before applying, but don’t put one on first and then the other on top, mix the dyes together properly first!

    I would NOT advise mixing two different brands because they’ll be using different chemical combinations which might not react well when mixed.

    If you can’t find the exact colour you want, I recommend going to a hairdressers and chosing a colour from them, because they’ll be able to mix the exact colour you want and it’ll save you being dissapointed again 🙂

    Again, I really wouldn’t advise you to mix two different brands of hair dye together!

    Good luck 🙂
