Fiore says she sees most of her clients every six weeks, but moms—especially those who work—come more like every three months. Carving out several hours for a cut, color, rinse and blow-dry can be nearly impossible—which is probably why some women decided to color their own hair. Fiore's advice? "Get a mom friend—who does the same thing—involved. You put her color on, she puts yours on and then you have a glass of wine and sit and talk while it sets." When you go at it alone, the results can be disastrous.
