The Ombre' dip

 Since I am now broke I had to take hair matters into my own hands.
Sorry Angelina, I will be back for a trim soon!

Here is how I did it

First I dyed my hair all over with soft black from Feria.
I didn't put the dye all the way down to my tips though because next I would bleach the ends.
I put some conditioner on the tips before I put the dye on, so it would keep it off the bottom half of my hair.
I also didn't want a hard line from the dark to the pink,
So using the conditioner let the black fade down a little

After I washed and dried my hair, I mixed up my bleach and brushed it onto the bottom half of my hair.
It processed to light blond pretty quickly because under my ends I have my original blond.
Yes, I know bleaching, dying and then bleaching and dying again on the same hair is a no no, but it worked.
My hair is pretty resilient.

(Color: Virgin Rose)

Then I washed and dried again and colored the lightened hair with pink semi permanent color.
Then rinsed it out, shampooed and conditioned.

My hair right after, blow dried straight

The next day curled

It turned out really good I think.

To keep the color bright, I added a few drops of the Virgin Rose to a travel bottle of conditioner and mixed it up. 
I use that every couple days after I shampoo so my hair doesn't look completely trashy.

I did something similar a few years back and loved it! It looks great on you by the way. Good thinking on the drops in your conditioner.
