Ah, so that'd be the Mexican influence creating the exoticness! It's a hell of a blend Your girl's a lucky chick. I've a pretty much straight German/British lineage myself. I'd've been more at home in an Asian body, but I reckon it's the luck of fate's draw; was sent where I needed to be.
Anyone's hair can hold colors if you bleach first, choose the right dye, and wash in cold water with color safe shampoo as rarely as possible! The choice of dye is really the most important. I had one brand of pink in my hair, lasted about 4 weeks (6 washes) before turning orangey on the ends. My current color has been in my hair since August first, no touch ups, and is bright pink still, almost everywhere apart from my inch of growout and some sun bleach in my bangs.
Yeah, bleaching can be difficult. If you currently have a dark color in your hair that is not natural, a dye solvent would likely be the best first step to remove the tint. Then I would suggest a 2 part lightening, step one being a bleach wash (about half and half of bleach+30 volume peroxide and shampoo or conditioner.)That will lighten a few levels, preferably to a gold, but it might only make it to a red gold. Here I would give your hair a deep condition and a 24-48 hour break as we do not want to damage it beyond repair. Step 2 would then be a regular bleach+30volume. Your roots may be as light as you'd like them by now. If so, you only need to bleach the discolored portion. If this still does not get the color light enough, a third application may be needed. For a third, I'd suggest 20 volume peroxide. When I got mine dyed all over pink, my hair was dyed with a permanent black. I was not with the best hairdresser as she did not know to use a dye solvent and bleached my hair 5 times over 2 back to back days. Luckily, the color came out brilliantly and the damage wasn't too bad. However, it really shouldn't require more than 3 bleaches as long as your hair is not too dark. Of course, all hair is different. Even if you needed 5 bleaches (probably better spread over 3, non-consecutive days with deep conditions in between) the damage will get better. My hair didn't even used to feel like hair, especially when wet. It's been only 4 months since then with only a half inch trimmed off, and it's as healthy as it used to be. Hope this helps! Bright colors are fun! People need not be afraid of them simply due to the bleaching involved or the fading. It's one thing if it's just not your color, but I think anyone who wants a bright color should get one!
