Take a look at these simple tips to give you the confidence of a professional:

Find Your Brand

For a gentle formula without ammonia, choose Clairol Natural Instincts, L'Oreal Paris INOA (Innovation No Ammonia) or Garnier HerbaShine Color Creme.

Choose Your Shade

Shade selection has two components: level and tone. For best results, choose a shade level (lightness or darkness), close to your own. If your hair is light brown, for example, you can choose dark blonde to dark brown shades. The tone is the base color of the shade, either gold, ash, red or neutral/natural. Choose as follows:

Add brightness with a gold base
Add depth with an ash base
Add warmth with a red based
Cover grey with a neutral (or natural) shade


Ask a friend over to do your hair together. It's more fun and easier than doing it alone.
Read and follow package instructions. Be sure to do an allergy test 48 hours before coloring.
Minimize color on your skin by applying face cream at the hairline.
Once applied, relax, have a coffee or glass of wine with your friend and catch up on the latest news.
Remove colorant as directed and dry to view the sensational new you.
