I've been doing my own hair color successfully for many years, golden reddish-blonde, and have gotten so many compliments on it here in Los Angeles where there are many great heads of blond hair walking around! I had a colorist friend who was trained in London at Sassoon, and she showed me the basics.

I mix 2 and sometimes 3 colors to get the shade s I want, and have learned from experimentation. My "kit" is very simple. However, I use professional color Wella Koleston , not the drug store variety that I'm sure Lorri Goddard doesn't use on her clients. I bought this book because I now have some grey hairs in the front part of my hair, and they are continually increasing in number; they don't hold the color well and I wanted to find out how to solve this problem. After much research, I found that no one is giving away the solution to this, my colorist friend isn't around anymore, and this book was the only place that had any real information.
It was a disappointment though, and honestly, I didn't really find the answer in here. I could go to a salon, which I've done for highlights before, but I don't want to get locked into that; I want to be able to maintain my color on my own, wherever I might be! The author should have obtained a better editor to make sure the instructions were clear.
As it is, the organization of subject matter is ok and detailed, but the actual "how to" directions are unclear, especially for highlighting. The rough drawn illustrations should have been photos. There is great detail in what things to get for your hair color "kit", but less detail in the actual hair color application.
For highlights, her recipe is going out and buying the Clairol or Revlon highlighting kit and applying it with her methods which are unclear. There is no custom color for highlights, and if there is, I surely can't find it! I suppose one could use one of the color mixes she lists, to use for highlights. There is some very good information about how to care for your hair, recommendations for shampoos and conditioners, and home made conditioners which is the best information in the book, but that's not what I was looking for.
Goddard had very good intentions when writing this, but it wasn't put together very well unfortunately. The worst part is that this soft cover version of the book has VERY bad color reproduction in the photos, so photos that represent the hair color are murky and way off color, leaving one without anything to refer to for color decisions.
The Hair Color Mix Book - Lorri Goddard-Clark - Paperback
It would be like working blind, without a color chart. I didn't know there was a hard cover version, and can't speak to whether or not the photos are better in that one, but this is obviously cheaply published. If you must do your own hair, you need to use this book!
Lots of info, presented so well even I can follow the hair color recipes, and that says a lot! My results looked so good that close friends thought I had finally broke my bank and went back to the salon- but NOPE! All I did was spend ten bucks on supplies that I didn't have on hand and with this book, I created a back to natural look for myself, with a kick!

Summer highlights, lowlights, glossing treatment, and deep conditioning, all in the same afternoon. I will use these hair color recipes for years to come, on myself and my friends who are already bugging me to do their hair after seeing mine. This book will get so much use, I wish it was spiral bound, because I am already worried that I am going to ruin the spine! I may have to Saran Wrap boom pages, because I am a messy hair color mixer: One person found this helpful. I thought this might be decent guide to mixing more professional colors like from the beauty supply store as well as box colors.
But it's really not It is only helpful for someone who is dying their hair off the grocery store shelf Chances are, that person is not going to bother buying this book nor feel confident enough to use multiple colors, etc. This book contains about 6 different hair colors and a variety of ways to obtain these hair colors if you are light to dark haired.
Each section has a variety of different recipes for one color, so six sections in all about. The picture on the front of the book is not listed in the book, so no idea of what it is or how to obtain it and that was the color I was going for. Some of the recipes are a bit odd. I thought it would be buy one redken walnut and one redken plum and mix half and half with this processor and leave on for so long, but it doesn't.
It says for color on page 2 for dark hair use this box with a shot of some color mousse but no idea where to get the color mousse or how long it stays in and have at it then it says to just keep experimenting. So, its good with the recipes, but since the color I wanted is not in there and they only have a few, I would go look at it first. Definitely not what I was expecting.
Definitely just a recipe book without pictures. Myself being a rather visual person needs the specific pictures for each color they describe- chestnut can mean a lot of different things. The explanations are good but it's more of a pre made recipe book for colored hair and I was looking for tips and tricks for custom color. One person found this helpful 2 people found this helpful. Great book when you need to refresh your memory or learn something new this is the book for you.
I am a cosmetologist and this book comes in handy. This book helped me gain confidence to color my hair at home and to branch out to mix two or three colors for a bit of variety. See all 34 reviews.
