Hairstyling/Bleached blonde wanting to go strawberry blonde


Hello, and thank you for taking the time to help out with all concerns hair color related; it is very much appreciated :) I am a natural dark brown almost black haired gal. I have bleached blonde hair, and when my roots come out, I bleach those too.  No hair color over the bleach just saloon in bleach powder. I'm a little tired of the color and wanting to go strawberry blonde but afraid that because it is bleached and not colored, it might turn pink or orange. The color I would like is something like or or

How can I achieve this at home without my hair turning pink or orange? Can I put a strawberry hair dye over my bleached hair or do I need to dye it another color first? Help!!!

Thank you sooo much :)

Unfortunately, this is not a do it yourself job. To gor from bleach to this colour would require repigmentizing the blond hair so that it can take the new colour properly. Firstly, the colour would have to be chosen that can be acheived with a single process colour. The ends would have to be repgimentized (filled) with a stain in a combination of red and gold a level lighter than the final colour level. Once this is done, the new colour would be applied. This is something you need a professional for, as there are too many variables to do it yourself at home.
Best of luck to you.
