What Goes Wrong: You end up with zebra stripes in your hair rather than subtly shaded strands.
Beauty Fix: Unless you’re going for a bold contrasting effect, highlights should never look intentional. Leave the job of highlighting to a professional — preferably one with some artistry and a good eye for placement. If your highlights are looking zebralike, seek help. A colorist can add extra streaks where necessary or fix the overall tone with a quick rinse or toner; a clear glaze can impart shine and make color last.
