You want a natural looking color, but you don’t want your natural color, per se. Ask your colorist to blend in highlights with your own natural base, and don’t let them go more than 2-3 levels higher than your natural shade. Not only will you end up with a dimensional hue, but you’ll get the longest wear out of the color as it grows out.
A lovely before and after example of this was done by Erin McKay, based out of the 901 Salon in Los Angeles.
