    I did the same, but I regretted so much!!
    The first day you feel, wow I'm a brunette, plus the blowdry straight from the salon looks like a pic from a magazine. Then back to my hairstyling I realized it's not for me, so boring!
    Why don t you try low lights? It gives contrast to the hair and a nice volume and depth... but you cannot do it at home, best to see s stylist.

    Jess, going from blonde to brown may require more than one-process color. If your hair was bleached to blonde, it took out the red tones. Using brown/dark hair colors on blonde hair will sometimes result in a green cast. In order to have a decent brown color, you will need to put back the red tones in your hair and color it to brown. It is best to let a salon professional correct the color for you.

    Heyy jess just do it.
    If you don't like it then you can change it back, but after a couple months so you don't kill your hair... I did it and I like it, my hair is naturally blonde and I really hate it but the dark looked good so I kept it, the only thing is that when your hair starts to grow out the black will fade and eventually look almost blonde again.
    And if you don't like it and want to go back blonde leave the bleach in for a few extra minutes or aply it over and over a couple times cause it'll make your hair either go orange or copper trust me I've seen it.
    Good luck on the looks
