Save a major change for the salon.

The biggest DIY dyeing snafu is thinking you can make a huge change at home. Extreme color changes can require multiple processes, which are best left to a salon colorist who knows how to assess tones and minimize damage. "Stay within two shades, lighter or darker, of your current color," advises Kari Hill, L'Oréal Paris celebrity colorist.

Buy two boxes.

The last thing you want is to run out of dye halfway through the process. If your hair is shoulder length or longer, you may need two boxes to cover your whole head, depending on hair thickness. (And if you end up with a leftover box, you can always use it next time.) We suggest Revlon ColorSilk (, ), which got perfect scores from the Good Housekeeping Institute.

Take the strand test.

If you're trying a new shade, test it on a few trimmed hairs or hidden pieces first, and look at the result before you commit. A common horror story from testers who didn't do this: hair that turned orange and purple!

Go naked.

A surprising number of testers revealed a dirty secret: stripping down when coloring to avoid staining clothes. If that's not your style, wear an old button-front shirt or robe — that way, you won't have to lift anything over your head when it's time to rinse. You can also lay down garbage bags instead of covering surfaces with towels or sheets, which can soak through and need washing.

Keep your lip balm handy.

There's nothing worse than ending up with stripes of color on your forehead. Rather than using a goopy salve to protect skin from dye, glide a clear solid lip balm along your hairline, Hill says: "Its small size makes for concise application."

Think like a surgeon.

Pretend you're in the OR and lay out all of your tools like you're ready to operate. You won't have to stop and scramble mid-process, which could lead to accidents (as in leaving the dye on too long!). Read through the box's instructions beforehand, too, "to get your bearings," Hill suggests.

Invest in a color brush.

Squirting the dye out and spreading it all over your hair may be easy (and fun!), but this method can be messy and imprecise. Instead, play salon colorist: Mix color in a bowl and paint on with a color brush (, ) for the most even, professional finish, testers say.

Highlight with a toothbrush.

Several testers shared a smart trick for subtle results: Use a dye kit two shades lighter than your color and paint on highlights with a clean toothbrush or mascara wand. Place them sparingly where the sun would hit — around the hairline and stemming from your part, Hill suggests.

Start from the top.

Since roots need the most color (and processing time), apply dye there first, then comb through the rest of hair to distribute it. Work in four to six sections, like pros do in the salon, to ensure full coverage.

Use two mirrors.

Coloring the back of your head can be tricky. As you apply dye in front of your bathroom mirror, hold up a handheld one to ensure you don't miss spots, Hill recommends.

Have cleansing cloths on hand.

Use wipes like Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes (, ) to soak up any dye splatters as they happen. If you wait until you're done, they may have already set. ("I still have stains I can't get off!" one tester sighed.)

Use a shower cap.

Once all color is on — but before you wander around — cover hair with a disposable shower cap to keep dye from dripping and staining. Then you can feel free to prep dinner or Netflix-binge.

Get extra gloves.

You slipped on the box's plastic gloves to protect your hands while putting on the dye, but you need to wear them while washing it off too. Have a fresh pair ready ( for 100, ) in case you can't reuse the originals. A tester who forgot ended up with seriously stained fingers!

Skip the suds.

It makes sense. Washing hair washes out color too. One way the GH Beauty Lab tests color fading is by repeating washing cycles, because just plain water (not to mention shampoo's surfactants) can leach dye molecules from strands, the Lab explains. "Wash colored hair every other day at most," Hill says.

Switch products regularly.

The Beauty Lab has found that using a color-depositing shampoo, conditioner or hair-gloss treatment once a week between dye jobs can revitalize hair color. Try Pantene Pro-V Brunette and Highlighting Expressions Shampoo and Conditioners ( each, ).

Gloss it up.

Like lip glosses for strands, hair glosses leave a hue-boosting hint of color and shine.
