I color my own hair sometimes when I feel like a spruce up and I get compliments on my color, so home color doesn’t always look “cheap”, as some people have said. BUT I have very dark brown hair and I only go a shade or two darker and use a semi-permanent color, so it basically fades to my natural color. Also because I only slightly darken my hair, you can’t tell if I miss a spot. I have never had an issue with damaging my hair either. However, I would never use box dye to go lighter, I’m just not that brave.

The only thing I did not like about doing it at home was the mess. Other than that, my color (a plain ol’ dark brown shade) was much easier and cheaper at home. I get compliments all the time on how rich and bouncy my hair is. I see no reason to spend what my colorist was charging me ($110 each time!!!) for just a single color, especially when I could not tell a difference. If anything, I noticed that her color faded a lot quicker on me.
Blonde may be trickier. I’ve had good luck with the workers at Sally’s Beauty and similar stores walking me through the process and telling me what to get. Maybe start there.

I will color at home if I get too busy. I use this company: https://www.esalon.com. They ask you a bunch of questions and attach a few pictures. The color has always turned out great. Never looks cheap. I think because they won’t send you a color that wouldn’t turn out well in your hair. I’ve had a sylist email me after looking at my pictures and suggest something other than what I picked out.
