My hair is very light and only slightly shorter than yours, I would have two recommendations:
1)You need a hairdresser that understands this particular need because if that's not the case you'll have a lot of trouble obtaining results
2)Use some sort of paste that you'll rub all around your hair and start spreading it going against "the grain" so to speak (from front to back for the hair that's in front, from your neck to the top of your head for the hair that's in the back etc)
3)style to the desired result and always place your bangs in the same general direction (no need to be maniacal about this but you get the idea)
4)If this doesn't work shave your head and become a monk
