Something that someone may be able to answer...hopefully!!!
I have quite a dark beard, which I have attempted to dye a different colour in the past. I couldn't tell you what dye I used...but it never took. I want to dye my beard perhaps red, or green...something like that, but I can never get it to work.
Does anyone have any recommendations? Would I have to bleach my beard beforehand? I don't particularly want to use peroxide, but I figure I'll have to because of my beard's naturally dark colour.
Strange question, I know...but if you could help, it would be appreciated.

You'll probably have to bleach. I know it's a pain, but brightly coloured dye won't show up on dark hair.
One brand I recommend is Special Effects. They make semi-permanents, but it lasts for aaaages, and the colour is really vibrant.
You can get it here:

I dont think that a peroxide you use fror your hair would be to great on your face it'll probably bring you out in a nasty rash.....( i had a similar experiance with my eyebrows, when i went blonde) lol
You can buy peroxides designed for your eyebrows etc from places like boots your much safer with them.
Another little tip is dont trust crazy colours if their anything on your beard like they are on your hair you'll have a lovely blue, red, green coloured face........ Guess it would be individual tho....???

If your beard is dark buy the colour you want and then buy the colour lightenier to put on before hand!!! You put that on and then you put your colour on for it to take!!! But.... you may have to get special beared stuff because i brought some red for my hair earlier this week (didn't take very well going to bleech it and then out it in next time) and it said don't use it on eyelashes, brows or beards!! So just be careful and don't bleech it because it is never supose to come in contact with your skin so i would of though on your beard it would do!Left ear:

i was a hairdresser so yeh you'll have to use bleach with say a 9% peroxide because your beard is dark and they are very resistant...10mm tunnels, 1.4 hood, lip, cartledge, bridge, tongue and two tattoos.
Retired- nose, both nipples, three navel, madonna, two lobe piercings, and lower back surface, anti tragus.

You can get facial hair bleach like Jolene (sp?)...mostly women use it but I'm sure it would be fine for a beard...you'd just have to use more.
I recommend Special Efects too...there's some lovely colours and everyone I've spoke to who has used it has has brilliant results. Just be careful you don't stain your face
If worst comes to worst...a beard can easily be shaved off and grow back quickly.currently: 1st lobes, 2nd lobes, nostril
retired: 1.6mm lobes, 6mm lobes, snug, 2 x helix, septum, 2 x nostril, 5mm lobes, labret, 8mm lobes, left tragus, right conch, right double forward helix
