I'm gonna suggest pretty much the same thing.
Just leave a bit on each side. Like a 3 or maybe even a 4. If you have dark black hair, bleach and dye what is remaining. The bright color with black will be awesome.
Also, try not to bleach and dye, lower than the shaved length. Then when you get home, after your hair has also grown for another week, you can shave off the colored part.
If you have lighter colored hair, mine is blondish/redish, I shave it short on the sides, bleach and dye it. Then when I get home, I just dye my hair the closest to the color that it was before.
