Highlights and Lowlights in my own Hair (Hair Tutorial)

Watch my Video Hair Tutorial to see how I did this.....

I was having one of those bad hair days and I couldn't get in with my hair colorist, so I decided to go ahead and do it myself.   Believe me this is not an easy task and anyone that is considering doing this on their own hair.....should proceed with caution.

That being said, I have done my own hair many times.  I actually have another video up on You Tube of me doing my own highlights that I uploaded about a year ago (before I knew how to edit).

I have a crazy busy life.  If I'm not working, I'm chasing around with my kids to all of their activities.  Blogging and creating videos is fun for for me, but this also eats up my time.  There really isn't a lot of time left for me to do things for myself, like get my hair color done.

My good friend Gabby, who is also licensed hairstylist, comes over every few months and we do each other's hair.  But sometimes we both get too busy to get together and my hair is driving me nuts every time I look in the mirror, so I will do my own hair to get me through until our next visit.

This is the last video I will be uploading from this camera. I have been using a Sony Webbie HD.  It has been really good to me.  I have created a lot of videos on this little camera.  However it was giving me a lot of problems with the sound going up and down and the lighting was very yellow no matter what setting I put it on.  It was time for me to upgrade.  I purchased the Canon HD CMOS Pro M40.  I just love it!  The picture comes out amazing,  the sound it clear and easy to understand, and the lighting is perfect.

I hope you enjoy this video and talk to you soon!
Your friend,

  1. Hi Tammy! I am a DIY'er and have been doing my own hair, including perms, for about 20 years now. I am so happy that you turned out this video on how to highlight/lowlight your own hair. I use three mirrors when doing my hair and agree that it is difficult to do so. I trim my own graduated bob and enjoy learning all things about cutting and coloring. I am a practicing artist, but love the geometry and color of hairstyling. Again, thank you so much for putting yourself through this to teach people like me.
