BEFORE YOU COLOR
Zoe Wiepert of Bumble and Bumble offers three pre-treatment tips
1. "Always start in the back when coloring at home because that's where hair is naturally darker. The hair around your face is finer and more porous, which means that it's going to grab color quicker, and that will give you that wiggy, inky look."
2. "Keep your sections clean and separate so there's no overlap otherwise, those areas will become darker. If you feel like you need to go over sections, it's best just to do it for the last three to five minutes on the ends."
3. "Make sure hair is in good condition before you color. The more porous hair is, the more it absorbs dye, resulting in inconsistent color."
