We have told you time and time again, that it's best to leave the complex haircoloring to the professionals, especially when it involves a 2-step color processing.

But what if you just want to head into the balmy breezes of June, July, and August with a gently sun-kissed mane of hair?

Summer time means Clairol Frost & Tip Nice 'n Easy and Clairol HairPainting Nice 'n Easy.

And Clairol puts out a very good highlighting kit for women to use at home, according to New York City colorist Marcello Paglionico. He told InStyle magazine that this formulation really delivers, "beautiful, natural, beachy" highlights without a hint of brassiness. And because it is oil-based, it leaves hair in fantastic condition."
