  • 1) Choose the right color. For highlights, it's best to stick with a color that is one to two shades lighter than your base color. Going too light can create an unnatural, stripy effect. If you have the option, go for a box that comes with a toner. That's the stuff that can take care of harsh tones.

  • 2) Protect your skin and clothes. Wrap a towel around your shoulders or cut a hole in a plastic garbage bag and pull it over your head. Wear the gloves that come with your kit to protect your hands from the bleach. The last thing you want is a bathroom covered in dye.

  • 3) Get familiar with your tools. Most highlighting kits come with an applicator tool that can be a bit cumbersome if you're new to the dyeing club. If you have the time, use it with your normal conditioner for practice. You'll see how it can sometimes be a bit splotchy or gloopy.

  • 4) Read the box. What it all comes down to is that you should follow the directions on the box. These things (and often companies) have been around for years and the process has been refined and can be trusted. So read the directions. Then read them again. Just to be sure!

  • 5) Prepare the bleach. Follow the instructions that come with your box kit to determine how the color should be mixed. Don't freak out if it's white, blue, or purple -- that's totally normal.

  • 6) Divide your hair into four sections. At least. If you'd like to divide into 12, that wouldn't be a terrible idea. Use hair clips or rubber hair ties to keep your hair in place. You don't want your post-dyed sections to mesh with the sections you haven't done yet.

  • 7) Apply the highlights. Start 1/4 of an inch away from your roots and apply the bleach from the roots to the ends in very thin stripes. The thinner the highlights, the more natural the color will look, whereas thick highlights will create a zebra-stripe effect. Don't start at your roots!

  • 8) Leave the color in for the allotted time. Be sure to keep an eye on your hair to make sure that the highlights don't get too light, and check the clock periodically. Leaving it on for more time won't get you a richer color.

  • 9) Apply the toner (optional). Some at-home highlighting kits include a toning solution, which will help blend the highlights in with the rest of your hair. This is a very good idea. It can give you a more natural, shinier tone. In fact, if yours didn't come with one, you can buy one separately.

  • 10) Wash out the dye. Shampoo and condition your hair in the shower, using the special conditioner that comes with your box, if there is one. Rinse it thoroughly, making sure all the dye has come out.

  • 11) Dry your hair with a blow dryer or allow it to air dry. Check the final result in a mirror using natural light. And don't freak out! If it's a little off, give it a couple days. That initial wash or two could tone it down.
