How to Dye Your Hair at Home

We've partnered with Clairol to make your at-home dye experience a total breeze.

Fall is the perfect time to give your hair some life: you can go for a trendy haircut or you can find a new way to style your sun-kissed strands. But our favorite way to make an impact? Updating your hair hue. You don't need to dish out the dollars to get a salon-worthy effect — you can totally achieve hair color goals right in your own bathroom using a high-quality product like Clairol Nice 'n Easy Hair Color.

To prove how quick and easy the process is, we documented blogger Liz Stanley as she gave her strands a color boost for the season ahead. Here, she opted for a natural-looking, light blond with ash tones that complemented her fair skin and wasn't a drastic change from her existing color. After taking a patch test for any allergic reactions and a strand test to preview the color results 48 hours prior to coloring, Liz was ready to start the process.

Whether you're looking to add cool tones to your hair like Liz or trying another on-trend color, keep reading to see how to have a successful at-home dye job in just five simple steps.
