@Laurenskii:  I honestly don’t think damage is the problem, the color you’re looking for would be easily applied without stripping your hair down at all…..is your hair already processed?

@Laurenskii:  I don’t think it would be a problem, you just need to make sure that you go to a good colourist.  A bad colourist (or a hairdresser who doesn’t do a lot of colour) can totally screw things up.  I went to a salon to get blonde streaks put in (think early Friends episodes, Jennifer Aniston) and this was before foils were really popular.  The chick did it with a cap, the cap tore and she didn’t know, the blonde leaked…it was AWFUL.  She also left it on too long and because it got under the cap it fried my hair and she couldn’t fix it right away – we had to wait 10 days for me to get an appointment with the salon colourist to fix it.  It was AWFUL.

@Laurenskii:  It shouldn’t be a problem then.  Just be really attentive to the tone of the strawberry blonde, your coloring lends itself to it, but I’ve seen the red/orange over power the golden tone and actually wash out the complexion of my heartbroken daughter AND brought out her pimples…it was a mess…AND the last time she let anyone that wasn’t me mess with her hair.

If you did the ombre thing, I’m sure you have a good colorist?  Just go in and see what happens, if its not what you want, you can always take it to a carmel color and highlight back up.

@Laurenskii:  Well…give it a shot then!  At least she knows when to put her foot down with clients, that the earmark of a good one.

Try using a shampoo/conditioner made specifically for redheads (John Freida makes one)- these deposit small amounts of red color on the hair and turn your hair a strawberry blonde tint. The best part is that once you stop using the shampoo/conditioner, the color will fade out. Not high maintence and not permanent 🙂

@Laurenskii:  I’m a hairstylist and I think that color would look beautiful on you. However, I would not classify Blake Lively as a strawberry blonde. To me she is more of a golden dimensional blonde. I think you’d look awesome with some highlights and lowlights (which is where you could bring in more of the “strawberry blonde” color). She definitely has a TON of dimension to her hair instead of just one solid color all over. 

Also, any time you lighten the hair its going to cause damage…but it you are taking good care of your hair at home it should be fine.
