Hair Color Tip No. 3: Bring Pictures to the Salon

When getting your hair colored, it's best to bring pictures along or at least show up a half hour early to peruse the salon's hair magazines for suggested ideas. Just describing a color to your stylist won't always work because "Irish setter red" may mean something different to her than it does to you.

Amy Huson, a colorist at the Marie Robinson salon, suggests in Allure magazine that you bring in 2 pictures to the salon, one that you love and one that you hate. "This way the colorist is sure to see -- not just hear -- what you want."

This photo is of "Mad Men" actress Christina Hendricks, who admits she's dyed her naturally blonde hair red almost her entire adult life.
