So I was mulling over future plans of hair styles I might want, that would also be considered natural enough for my current job (which I'm hoping to change anyway to a place that allows brights). Anyway I was considering a dark grey/black....like charcoal....that has purpley low lights (or a purple under tone). So I was thinking a mix of some diluted Translyvania and (diluted more than likely to tone it down some) deep purple. Or essentially a blue based black mixed w a purple. So my question is....will that work? Also being that I'm in a reddish/orange zone now...should I work the color wheel and put the purple on first to help get me over to that color spectrum? And if I do that, should I just put diluted blue based black over that....or should I fade it out a bit and then do the mix of purple and blue based black... Or just diluted blue based black? Also....any other brand recommendations for a Translyvania type color? Just how would you go about it. Thanks in advance. The pics are just pics I saved to help get a bit of a jist...the 2nd one is more accurately depicted.

There are two ways. One way might work and the other way might work.
I did a similar color with professional help. My result was blue-black hair in direct sun glowed a dark blue and indoor was a shimmering blue-black.
One way is to dye all the hair a medium purple followed by 50 percent of the hair low lighted with thin black streaks.
The second method is to dye the hair black. Then highlight about 50 percent of the hair to a dark blonde. Then apply a medium purple to dark purple dye to the highlighted strands.
Good luck. These are my suggestions.
