Hair makeover O.o ? I need help haha

I've recenty been thinking about getting highlights. It really adds dimension to the hair cut. Got a perm two months ago. Not sure of it's too healthy for my hair to color it after that, but 60 days ... it's now or never. I've also been wondering if it's safe to do this at home. Not sure how to, don't know which products are best, and never had highlights, so I don't know which colors would be the best. My hair is dark brown. Looks black when wet and kind of highlighted already in the sunlight. I want nice highlights that look natural and can't go wrong. School starts in a month, so it has to work the first time. Which colors should I get, or should I get them at all? And although an at home session is less costly, should I go to a professional?

I just don't want it to look crappy. I'd hate to start my junior off that way...



Btw, I'm posting this from an iPod, so I can't link images. I'll add them in a couple of days when I get to my pc.

If you want it to look natural, then you definitely don't want to go too light. A caramel-ish blonde is probably the lightest you want it to go. From personal experience, I know for sure that highlighting at home can work! However, I did not do it by myself and wouldn't recommend that. A friend of mine who has like always wanted to be a hairdresser did it and it turned out great! If you trust in your own skills, then go for it. And if you're worried about how it will turn out, you could try highlighting the lower layers of your hair so it won't be as obvious.

Oh an btw I know from experience that it is cheaper to buy a dye kit (as long as you know the color you want) than a highlighting kit.
