Professional dye or box?

Adding some white blonde highlights throughout my hair sounds fun. I have also thought about red (and yes my job allows it). I pay a decent amount to keep my short hair looking good, but dye is not a huge priority. Should I get it done by a stylist? Or brave it on my own with a friend?

If you been doing it like a long time I think you should get the highlights kit at local store and save the money for a cute outfit instead.insane what ppl pay for hair.

blonds and reds are very tricky colors and require a lot of care . so i would get it professionally done , cause you really can mess up your hair .but if you dont care about the health or your hair then do it your self
