I dont think its a big deal to do it yourself - my hair went black after about 12 YEARS of doing it myself - and it took TWO sessions of lifting to get it off......not a pretty process, but im glad i did it now.

Maybe find out what product she uses - if your hair isnt too complicated a color (highlights etc) it shouldnt be too hard.

The other thing i like about having it professionally done is that it doesnt look FLAT - the color i mean - it had no dimension at all. Didnt look like real hair....... My girl uses GOLDWELL color products which are one of the best.
