  • Are there any beauty school near you? They do hair for cheap.

  • Wow...that's such a mom thing to do...gauge time by how old your child is. haha. I do that, too. (Well, back when Coop was 5 months, I...")

    Anyway...yeah, beauty school. Risk it turning orange w/ Sun In. Or just do it gradually w/ a home kit.

  • Not just beauty schools but here the Aveeda and Toni and Guy salons both have hair model days where new stylist do free or very cheap cuts and color on you to try them out. You can find these deals on Craigslist under beauty and salons or whatever it is at the bottom of the page. I've had some of my best cuts that way!

  • You didn't say if you were naturally light or dark before you dyed your hair brown. If light, I would say do it yourself-I've had great luck since I was laid off at work and couldn't afford salons for a while. There are always coupons in the Sunday paper off brands, and they really aren't bad. There are so many now too choose from. If your dark, it's even easier. But if you're dark your natural coloring (skin, face, eyebrows) will look better anyway with a dark color-not light. Go with what you naturally would be.
