I've done my own hair coloring the past 6-8 months, and it's been okay (far from perfect but okay) But when we got back home, I went to the hair salon. I got my hair done and colored, my brows done and colored. It was so nice to relax and let somebody else do it. And the result was 100 times better - so there you go Sophie.....A professionel will always do it better!!
