Coloring your hair at home can be daunting, but it's actually pretty easy if you know what you're doing.
Whether it's covering gray hair, giving the natural color a bit of a boost, or putting on a fun trendy color, we got advice from some master colorists.
If this is your first time coloring your own hair, Megan Graham, owner and teacher colorist at Megan Graham Beauty in Boston, has some quick tips.
"Be reasonable," he says.
"Staying within a range of two shades greater or less than your natural color can be achieved at home."
A major color change should be left to the professionals.
And those who have good relationships with their colorists should reach out and ask for some direction.
They may be able to help you match your color, based on their knowledge of your custom mix, and provide advice on how to manage the process.
The best permanent hair color at home
Dyeing your own hair and covering your roots is easier than you think, even if you've never done it at home.
Miguel Angarita, master colorist at the Oscar Blandi Salon in New York City, shares some advice.
"Applying color only to visible areas minimizes mistakes and prevents you from feeling overwhelmed."
Another key tip?
Follow the instructions.
"Any brand can be safe, but it is crucial to follow the manufacturer's instructions, as well as perform a test to rule out any allergies to the color," he added.}
