Do you have any colors that you would like to try? Are you looking to get a few highlights, bold color allover etc? It's ultimately your decision.Smile

Type Brown Caramel Blonde Hair Ombre into google...I think those colors would be really cute on you!

A honey blonde would make your bright eyes pop, but so does dark hair. I'm thinking a reddish tone

Personally I find that hair colours too close to someone's skintone washes them out.
Example: There was a "blonde" highlight trend among Indians around 6 years ago and most of whom I had seen (mainly peeps at Highschool) were walking around with orange highlights that were very close to their skintone. It didnt look flattering in my opinion, if they had gone for a darker shade and maybe some red out... could have looked cute.

You have a pretty medium tan/caramel skintone so I could suggest the following (ref pic: http://greekamericangirl.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/Auburn-Hair-Color-Chart-570x328.jpg):

Blondes: 8 WITH 6.3 highlights, 7.1/6.3 mix, maybe 8/8.3 mix
Colour: You can pull off bold colours, think fire red, electric blue etc. Pastel shades are very cute for summer. Consider a pastel ombre like Lauren Conrad (her trademark style is very summery boho chic!).

I think even if you only went up by 1 level or 3 levels (lightening your hair) you could still rock a cute summery hair colour. I think styling plays the biggest when trying to look trendy for the summer holidays. Consider braiding your hair at night, french braids (channeling boho chic), curls (any kind though marcel curls could look very cute if defined and finger combed).

Try some summer hair styles before lightening up. After you lighten/dye your hair is pretty much set on a path to deterioration like... you used an alkaline product to change your hair. Your texture will go from soft and supple to [usually] dry and damaged. You can make the hair appear healthy but overall the hair health wont be so good. Make sure you are ready for it is all im suggesting.

Other than that... Rock out! Have fun! We're only young once right?! Tongue
