Should i dye my hair blonde before dip-dying it

I have naturally medium-brown hair. Right now it is dyed a bit darker. I want to dip dye it blue or teal, but was wondering if I should dye my hair blonde first? Could I even pull that off? And if so, what kind of blonde? I've ombre-d my hair before, and it looked good. But it was a bit brassy (looked cool as a dip, but not for all over). Any advice? Would brown to blue dip dye work, or should I go blonde first?

Yup, you have to go light beforehand. I've done it before...just be sure to condition your hair well, as the bleaching process will damage the hair.

Because vibrant colors are not permanent it is necessary to lighten prior to applying the vibrant tone. Lift the ends up with lightener first until you reach a pale blonde tone. This will insure the true tone of the blue showing up. If you are only able to lift to a orange or yellow, it will jepordize your target results. I would use extreme caution if you have already dip dyed in the past as there is probably still existing bleach on your ends and I would hate you you to over process.

Only go blonde first if your hair is in good condition, go salon blonde though so its not as damaged.
