A change of hair colour can overhaul an entire look. Many women want to change their natural colour, while others just want a subtle shift or to cover up grey hair. Rather than buying hair colour in a box from a drugstore, you can choose a professional hair dye such as Wella Koleston. It is commonly used by professional hair stylists for colour changes in salons. You can also buy it from some beauty supply stores.

Don gloves before using Wella Koleston hair dye. Make sure that the gloves fit well and cover your hands entirely.

Mix together one part Wella Koleston hair colour with two parts developer in a colour applicator bottle. Use the developer that comes with the kit. Place your gloved finger over the tip of the bottle and shake it vigorously until it's thoroughly mixed. This takes about 30 to 60 seconds.

Squeeze the mixture out of the bottle and start applying it to the roots of your hair. Cover them completely. Move downwards and cover all of your hair with the Wella Koleston. Leave it on the hair for 30 to 45 minutes.

Rinse Wella Koleston completely out of the hair. Follow with a deep conditioner. Rinse and style as usual.
