i really wouldn't go for blonde highlights in really dark hair.. i just think its looks kinda trashy.

if you insist on going lighter, then perhaps some lighter brown highlights?. i agree with the dark red idea though.. although maybe more auburn so it looks a bit more natural.

..and our dreams will break the boundaries of our fears..

As Elle said, avoid telling the stylist "blonde"....usually, unless he/she is skilled, that translates into orange/yellow streaks...which isn't bad, execpt for the fact that that's not what you're aiming for. Instead of blonde/light brown, request "honey" or "caramel" streaks. Oh, and if I were you, avoid getting "chunky" highlights, as they tend to look fake and are quite a nuisance when growing out. Stick to a more natural look :3

How about something like this?...

Good luck with everything!
