    Dyeing hair blonde on top and a brown on bottom to a dark brown on top
    Ok, I've had my hair dyed dark brown on bottom and blond on top. Like that half and half thingy. Well, anyway I want to dye my hair a dark brown. However, my blond is brassy from rusty well water. The blond is a light. Any ideas as to how to not turn my color brassy? Or NOT make it look stupid. I don't have the money to go to a salon and have it done. Since it'd cost about 80.00-90.00. I've got fair skin, but I plan on tanning soon. And a blue-gray-green eye color. I've got about 5-6 1/2 inches of my roots showing. But it's a light brown I'd say. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

    Brassy blondes are very common. It's sometimes caused by not bleaching light enough. More commonly, it's caused by the toner fading. The solution to the latter is to re-tone by using a demi-permanent toner or by using a temporary toner every time you shampoo.
