Q: I am ready to change my hair from "mousy brown" to California blond. Can I do this at home?
A: Best not to do this at home! So many women write to me, wondering how they can fix a bad dye job done at home. If you want to change from brown to blonde, get thee to a hair salon! Hair coloring truly is an art form, with many elements to consider: base hair color; underlying tones to pull up when lightening with more than two shades; and condition of hair.
