so I know I haven’t been here in a while but it was the first place that came to mind was I needed help my hair. I currently have a blond ombre color with my natural light brown color at the top and want to get rid of it. I would like to do a deep red color all over but don’t know what would be easier: coloring the bottom now to match my top and wait a bit before doing the deep red or just doing it all at once. And would this be considered a single process?
Any tips or help is appreciated!!

mco06 : do it all at once, dont dye and then add red because you might end up getting a color that is more dull and not as vibrant. I always suggest with my red heads – have a red glaze put on after your single process to lock the color in more – red fades super fast

I went from caramel/copper balayage on my dark, dark brown hair to red and did it all in one go. My stylist re-bleached/balayaged because the blonde had grown out, added a darker red for the top and a few shades lighter red for the ends. Then she did another red/mohagany toner to darken everything and blend.

My disclaimer is I’m not a hairstylist, but I dye at home A LOT. It doesn’t look like it in the picture, but I’d be careful of dyeing your hair if it’s been bleached recently. I also strongly second the glaze suggestion. Red loses its vibrancy very quickly (I was a faux-redhead until I decided not to keep up with it!), so a glaze and using sulfate-free shampoo should help.
