How would you describe these two shades, the one on the left and the one on the right.

My hair is closer to the one on the left. How should I best get the shade on the right?

The one on the left looks to me like a medium ash blonde. The right looks like a light ash blonde.

Keep in mind, color reproduction on monitors is problematic.

You can dye your hair -- but with ashy shades only -- which are few and far between. If you try to go golden blonde your hair will be brassy, and it will look awful on you. For your first go round on hair color, you might want to go to a master colorist, and have them explain it all to you. And they can mix a color to give you some golden glow, without the brass.

You know you're an ash blonde if you look terrible in warm shades, and look great in cool jewel tones, and you prefer silver to gold. I am an ash blonde, but my skin tone is more neutral so I wear gold and silver jewelry, but all the colors I like to wear and surround myself with are cool colors.

I agree w/Tallysmom; I would recommend you go to a professional vs. trying to do this at home (assuming you are thinking about this).

If you want to give it a shot at home; take a small strand of your hair and test first!

The one of the left looks like it has more red and brown on my screen: dark golden blonde
The one of the right looks like a champagne blonde to me too.

I think you can do it at home. If it turns out brassy or orange you just need a toner. And its easiest to keep up at a salon if your hair tends to do this. If the toner doesn't work then you need to let your hair rest a bit and try to get it lifted again at the salon. Keep a list of all your products used. I personally don't think all hair can get to a nice blonde. If you really like that brighter color you can use them as thick highlights mixed with more ashy or golden lowlights to combat any brassy appearance.

Remember to use shampoo etc for blonde or white hair. Other products can make it look brassy when they build up.

You've got to see a professional for that. There are lowlights and highlights involved in that mix.

I don't think you should try to use the bottle on yourself.
