    Try going up gradually by going a couple shades lighter than your original color and then lighter the next time. It's not as noticable and before you know it you can get away with the nice colors that both Janet Jackson and or Mary Blige have.

    dont go blonde! it will be an orangey color! instead i suggest that u warm up ur current color with some softer lighter brown highlights. u can do a couple different colors too to make it fun and the maintenence and wear and tear wont be as hard to keep up as bleach.

    A brown or red.

    Never go more than 2 shades lighter than your natural hair colour if you want the highlights to look good.

    I think blonde or a real light brown looks awesome on African American women--I'm not saying it's "the best" but that is just my opinion. :)

    I think that you should have blond or light brown hair colour. It will improove your look and it will also highlight you.
