There are different colored toners. And each colored toner helps with either brassiness, orange color or whatever the problem hair color is. But you HAVE to be careful what color toner you use.

I personally can't do highlights at home because I have red tones in my hair color so the highlights turn orange on me, but when my best friend put them in her hair (the same highlight kit I bought) hers came out blonde and really pretty. So it all depends on what your natural hair color is.

If I were you and I wanted to do highlights at home, i'd just get the highlight kit that comes with a head cap (i'd buy the most expensive at home highlight kit there was) or just go to Sallys and ask them to help you. They have caps there also. And when you were done and you didn't like the color your streaks turned out to be, i'd go into Sallys Beauty Supply and ask them to help you pick out a toner, but my stylist tells me not to try to use the toner at home because it can be tricky with how long to leave in your hair or whatever.. so I don't know, honestly it's too much work for me to do at home, i'd go to a stylist and have them do it for you... i'd save up the $$

Thanks. That explains it. I knew there were different levels or whatever but I don't know how to use them personally... I'd rather let a stylist do it. Unfortunately my previous hair stylist doesn't work at the salon anymore... I had a different girl touch up my roots this time and though she did a good job, I'm not really sure I want to go back to her. She kept suggesting that I put lowlights into my hair even though I don't want my hair to be darker... I like the variation of a lot of blonde with a little bit of my natural streaks mixed in. She said i'd "have to put in lowloghts" next time because my natural streaks are "disappearing." Makes no sense to me when I'm happy with my hair the way it is and I just want the roots touched up - that's all. Then she suggested going all one color - another thing I don't want to do because I really love the variation.
I'll just have to schedule an appointment with a different girl next time and hope that she provides better insight into the whole thing and offers better advice on how to maintain my current color. I'd be happy just getting my roots touched up forever... I don't see the problem. I guess I just need a second opinion.
I got really lucky with a great stylist the first time I wanted to go blonde. Unfortunately now I have to look for a different person. I was afraid of that, but oh well.
