Does anyone have any good tips on how to do this at home? I saw the linke of Stef Diamond's post but she only talks about doing this on weave. I just want to hightlight a couple of spots of my natural hair, maybe about 4-6 with burgundy auburn, and gold colors.

I went to Sallys yesterday to contemplate about what you plan to do to your hair.they should me those "highlighting" or "chunking" caps you can use. They seem easy to use.

I think I want to just highlight about 1 or 2 pieces in front blue, then dye the rest of my hair black-blue.

Yeah tell me about the orange.....I just used bleach to highlight my virgin indian and geez....I'm feeling a little orangina about now....I'm contemplating doing it again or just dying it all back....it's actually kinda funky and I like it but I think the problem may have been that I didn't leave it on long enough.

Not too sure of the colorist terminology, but I want to bleach a couple pieces of my hair and color it a midnight blue.  When I originally posted this thread my intentions were to dye it that burgandy color but now I am dying my entire head jet black the blackest I can get it so those blue streaks can just POP out.
