Now they've even got these cute guys for $3.97 so you can actually "try out" a color before you commit to a whole gallon.But heck, where's the fun in that??? Just go for it I say.That way when your 12 year old gets home she can say,"I thought you wanted dark brown...that looks burgundy." To which the 8 year old can reply, "Nuh uh. It looks reddish, like Mom's hair. And old time-y. Like cowboy days."Not quite what I had in mind.
