Depends on whether your stylist knows what they are doing or not.
Suggest you not try to highlight your brown hair yourself, because your hair needs to be lifted several shades before it will reach the blonde stage.
A properly trained hairstylist will know what to do.
Make sure you ask around and find one that does, because not all stylists are experienced in color and highlighting applications.

It all depends on if you have red pigmentations in your hair, you can see if you have them by standing in the sunlight and your hair has shiny red images ..if you have the reddishness then you probably will have to pre bleach the strands,  it is best to have a stylist do this or someone that knows what they are doing, my friend had her aunt do hers and it turns out horrible ...after she bleached it - it would not hold any color ( the bleached strands) my friend has had to cope with the bleached areas for quite sometime know and it is finally reaching the length to cut those areas off.

Depends on how the highlights are done.  Try having the person sit you under the dryer with the color on your hair.  Bleach always takes better than just regular color

When I first had blonde highlights, the hairdresser did them in foil and left me on the seat, these went a reddish colour, but when I went to a different hairdresser she used a cap and bleach and put me under the dryer. This worked perfect.

The first stylist either didn't leave the hair bleach on long enough or she used a color to lift your brown hair with, which would not lift high enough to get you to the blonde stage.
Nice answer though. I always preferred using frosting caps verses foils when highlighting brown or darker hair.
