Rule 1: Ignore the Photos on the Box
"When shopping for at-home hair color, many women will only look at the picture on the box," says Jet Rhys, celebrity stylist and co-owner of the Jet Rhys Salons in San Diego. "The model on the box may have the perfect shade of brown, but we don't know what her hair color was like before the dye." Instead, consult the numbers and letters on the package to determine the level of color and desired tone, says Izabela Saboski, director of color for Salon Ziba in New York City. On a shade scale of 1 to 10, 1 is the darkest, 10 the lightest. The letters, she explains, reveal the dye's undertones — a means ash, g gold, c copper, and n neutral.
