My sweet niece is visiting for a few weeks and she wanted a change with her hair. We decided to try the Herbal Essence Highlights kit. She was so brave to let her less-than-qualified aunt attempt this on her. She wanted some lighter streaks throughout her hair so this is how we did it. We left it in for 30 minutes and then washed everything out. I should have taken a before picture but she went from being all light brown to having subtle streaks of blonde. It looks great with her skin tone. I like that it's still a bit darker underneath but is all fun and "summer-y" on top. It's always fun to have a change and I think she looks beautiful!
