Read the Instructions: Most mistakes are made because people don't, says a Clairol hot-line representative. The single most common error in home hair color is removing the color prematurely. "The chemicals stop working after a certain length of time, so there is little harm in leaving the color on too long. But you will get unsatisfactory results from too short a time."

Regarding Jack Mathews' article, I have seen these colorized video tapes because I eagerly bought them. I had a showing at my place and everyone there seemed absolutely delighted with the color process. Age group? 20s to 50s . . . they all loved it. Isn't it absolutely marvelous that those producers who begged their studios to do a film in color in the late '40s but were refused because of the cost of color can now get even and have a computer color the very film they wished to have in color?

For most of "Les Misérables," things do not go well for Fantine. Abandoned by the father of her child, she goes on a long spiral down the economic ladder and winds up working in a brothel. And although she's always featured with a splash of color in the film, by the time she's selling her body there's only one color left for her to wear: red. "In 'Les Misérables,' one thing [director Tom Hooper] wanted to have was color. Fantine always had to have reds and pinks in her outfit," says costume designer Paco Delgado.

Memo to Plaschke, et al.: Friends who have seen my letters in The Times sports section have commented that I must have too much time on my hands. But at least I'm not sitting around, wringing my hands over the color of the UCLA basketball uniforms! BOB WARNOCK Eagle Rock

Rumor has it from census data that Los Angeles is one of several counties in California where people of color are in the majority. This airy fact consistently eludes Calendar. Within the course of one week, Calendar covered the career of white filmmaker Alexander Payne and spotlighted four up-and-coming male filmmakers ("Filmmakers on the Verge," Sept. 30). The Times' failure to include any filmmakers of color in its profiles reinforces the racism of the Hollywood machine. Talented up-and-coming filmmakers of color are not getting the deals, perks and media fawning because of the industry's deeply rooted biases toward perspectives that don't conform to its ghettoized image of people of color.

EVERY year paint companies and trend forecasters predict what's on the color horizon. Most recently "spa colors" of watery blues and greens, with splashes of melon and pinks, have dominated, along with pairings of teal blue and sable brown, creams and sage, and the many brews of latte. More adventuresome decorators have jolted rooms with orange, purple and lime. January and February are prime months for interior design projects, "especially now that the paints are more low-odor.

Brightly colored images from discarded magazines create of-the-moment sculpture in the latest line from Frazier & Wing. The new mobiles consist of a transparent plastic top supporting two-sided paper discs, hand-cut and strung with monofilament by designer Heather Frazier of Portland, Ore. You may see dahlias on one side of a disc, strawberry shortcake on the other. Kettle Chips ads have never looked so good.

Barbara Hernandez's article ["A Woman of Color Who's Seeing Red," Aug. 24] reminded me of something a Hispanic nurse told me last week. "When my husband died and my kids and I moved into a condo, I overheard a neighbor say to his elderly father, 'There goes the neighborhood -- the Mexicans are moving in.' But I got him good. Three years later I married him!" RICHARD SHOWSTACK Newport Beach I am one wide-eyed, grateful Anglo guy for whom great lessons in intimacy have been taught by women of many colors, shapes and sizes.

Several innovations are occuring in the fax industry for both the business person and the general consumer. For example, the use of color for business documents has already taken place in computers and copy machines, and it seems the fax industry will be no exception. Color faxes will reach the market as soon as engineers overcome the technological challenge of image compression at a workable cost.
