She left the salon with some very blonde highlights, mixed with some very brassy highlights. How do we fix this? [more inside]

Tired of the cap. Can I paint on highlights at home without one?

I've been doing my highlights at home for a while and they turn out well, but the highlighter cap annoys me. It's hot and uncomfortable, and I'd also like to get my highlights closer to my scalp than I can with the cap on. Googling leads to contradictory advice. Does anyone here paint them on at home with a brush and end up with a nice result? [more inside]

Best Elena Kagan Hearing Highlights?

Where's the best Elena Kagan confirmation hearings highlights reel? A law prof wants to show some of the hearings in class for his students. Is there a good 10-30 minute video that captures some of the legal and humorous highlights out there? I've been googling but there's so many options that I wondered if anyone else had some they liked. Bonus points if said video can be written to DVD.

Late last year (November?) I saw Brad Pitt with a sort of patchwork of highlights on the cover of one of those major gossip magazines at a supermarket checkout.
