I have long, dark brown single layer hair.
I have bleach, and different colored hair dye,
but I just need advice on wear to place the streaks. I have no idea what would look good.
I'll attach a piccy of my hair (for the most part) and maybe you guys can help me!

Oh, and i usually wear my bangs clipped up! or in a headband ;)

You can do some panels of color on the sides of your hair, underneath the top layer. I did that for awhile before I went fully pink. Here's an older post of mine where you can see what I mean: http://prettymaking.blogspot.com/20...

I had been wanting to add purple strips to my hair and was wondering the same thing! :)

What I like to do is underneath. Right now underneath my bangs and the rest of my hair is different shades of pink, purple and blue. Its very cotton candy like! The top is still super light blonde. I prefer to do colors underneath because if I put my hair up it looks very cool, and its just a subtle look. Though blonde with colors is very NOT subtle:P

well if your set on bleaching out your hair and putting crazy colors in ...section your hair at ear level...if you take a zig zag parting..then place your foil highlights or chunk highlights in you will be left with a cool peek a boo effect...your hair is so pretty, so maybe consider buying some clip in extension and bleaching/coloring them...hope it turns out great...xo sarahann

IF you're not sure where to put the colors, I'd suggest chalking your hair first. You can pick up the pastels on the cheap, and then you can try out the colors/placements for a few days before damaging your hair and possibly not liking it.
