I read some articles, blogs and such and some of them were mentioning, summer isn't the most suitable period to do it. It's not summer yet, but summer's approaching.
Anyway, those who know better could help me.

So do you want like a wine red or more of a reddish brown color? Honestly, the articles you read were a bit BS, red hair isn't exclusive to the winter , It can be pulled off great all year round, but red colors are known to bleed a bit after dying your hair , so I'd be cautious going swimming in pools , other then that, I don't see the issue with you going red

Have someone do it for you, since it's your first time. Also, if it's a very different shade, either darker or lighter.. do it over a few times.
