it depends on the person's complexion and how light the blond color. I do like it in the right mix. But Jet black is so sexy on any complexion. it makes me want to bus 1.

It isn't so hard to "get" in that all that's required is bleaching and dying. However, after the process is complete, warding off damage due to dryness, brittleness, and a tendency to splitting can become a near full-time job. Deep conditioning, trimming, protective styling, maintaining moisture, choosing products/tools with extra care...the meticulousness required could easily become tiring. I would never dye my hair because I am very vain about its length, thickness, and inky blackness. The potential damage from bleaching/coloring is enough to strike terror into my heart. However, if I ever feel adventurous, I'll certainly look into lightening it...

Also, another concern is matching color shade to skin tone. The shade of blonde simply must match the skin tone otherwise the results will be painfully garish. An example of blonde gone wrong is Serena Williams. A woman with such luscious dark skin should be looking into warmer shades of blonde--more coppery/strawberry than blonde, in fact...and if she's going to wear false hair then she should take care to hire a specialist for best results...but that's another conversation. Mary J. Blige is a good example of blonde gone right (although her hair can look shoddy at times).

I think the contrast between dark skin and lighter hair can be very sexy. Recently I saw a *very* dark black woman with her hair lightened to a very warm shade of blonde. She looked so striking that I couldn't help but secretly stare at her like some voyeuristic weirdo. I guess the fact that she was also wearing a white blouse also added to the contrast--white teeth, light hair, white blouse against skin so smooth and dark that it looked painted on. I wanted to go rub her skin...I'm sure it would have been incredibly soft.

There's no such thing as no maintenance black hair.  Natural or permed, it all requires regular conditioning, trims, and general tlc.

The problem with the black/blonde look is that more people get it wrong than right.  I have seen so many clashing, jacked-up shades of blonde on black women's heads.  And please note that just throwing some bleach on it does not give you a suitable blonde color, whether its full head or highlights. You see people walking around with brassy yellow color and you know that's what they did, without realising that you have to dye it after you bleach it to get a color that looks good.
