“He had a vision like the Pete Davidson-esque guy…our shoot was only a month long, so it was kind of awesome that he was willing to do such a drastic thing for such a short [time].”

How do you Dye Brunette Hair Blonde


Before starting, assess your hair’s current condition, texture, and previous color treatments. If your hair is already damaged or processed, it’s advisable to consult a professional colorist.

Color Selection

Choose the shade of blonde you want to achieve. For brunettes, it might be necessary to undergo a series of bleaching sessions to lighten the hair enough for the blonde color to take effect.


Purchase a high-quality hair bleach and developer. Choose a developer strength based on your hair’s natural color and the level of lightness you wish to achieve. You will also need a toner to eliminate any unwanted brassy or yellow undertones.

Hair Protection

Apply a protective barrier, like coconut oil or a specialized hair treatment, to the hair ends and sensitive areas, such as the hairline, to prevent excessive damage during the process.


Mix the bleach and developer according to the product instructions. Start applying the bleach to small sections of hair, starting from the ends and working your way up towards the roots. Avoid overlapping previously bleached hair to minimize damage. Keep a close eye on the hair during the bleaching process to avoid over-processing.

Rinsing and Toning

After the hair reaches the desired level of lightness, rinse out the bleach thoroughly with cool water. Then, apply a toner to neutralize any unwanted brassiness and achieve your desired shade of blonde.

Post-Bleach Hair Care

Bleaching can cause significant damage to the hair. Use a deep conditioning treatment and hair mask regularly to restore moisture and strength to your hair. Avoid excessive heat styling and use products specifically formulated for color-treated hair.


Blonde hair requires regular maintenance to keep the color vibrant and prevent brassiness. Invest in color-safe shampoos and conditioners, and consider using purple shampoo occasionally to counteract any yellow tones.

Professional Help

If you are unsure or inexperienced with the process, it’s best to consult a professional colorist. They can assess your hair’s condition and guide you through the dyeing process while minimizing potential damage.
