Can anyone with a light/platinum blonde hair recommend a good stylist/salon to go to? I currently have dark blonde hair and want to go lighter but don't want to do it at home. Thank you!

If you are looking to get away cheap, The Beckley Beauty Academy downtown does a decent job. I heard that they are closing soon, however. It's worth a try.

Take it from someone who knows, I would start with a thick layer of platinum blond highlights and gradually lighten it. If you go out into the bright sun or lay in a tanning bed after the light highlights (a day of two later), it will get considerably lighter. If you try to do it all at once, you will literally melt your hair. The stylist should advise you of this and if she/he don't then they are not a good stylist. It will take a little longer that way but if you try to go that light all at once, there will be damage and lots of it. Also, a little advice, leave the under layer a little darker to avoid that cotton candy fried hair look, it gives the hair some depth and thickness and really does not affect the color since all you see is the top layer anyway. You can get that platinum blonde effect without doing all the hair super light.
