Adventures in Haircoloring?

My hair is driving me batty these days. I think it's time for a change, but what to do? It's naturally curly and mousy brown, so I straighten and dye it black, but it's conversely both flat and frizzy, and generally just rather disappointing.

I figure when I get it cut I may bite the bullet and go for red, like a deep auburn shade. You know, even though I can't afford to get my hair professionally colored anymore and red is the most challenging DIY shade. But until then I'm thinking about bleaching the split ends that will end up getting cut and coloring them with a crazy Manic Panic bubblegum pink or royal blue. I know it's a bit "done" but with just a couple weeks of being 26 left, I'm pretty much at the end of the days where dying my hair like that is going to fly, so I know I should just give it a go already. I'm just terrified that I will totally eff it up. Then again, even if I do, there's really not much black dye won't cover, right?
