Coloring one area of gray hair

My natural hair is light brown but I have one area of gray (a patch) in the front of my hair that irritates the crap out of me. I tried coloring brown and ended up with a blonde patch (ugh), I tried coloring red and ended up with a pink patch. :crybaby: They were spaced a month apart. Ok, now I'm thinking that black may be the only color to make it sort of uniform. Wondering if I should put the color on the gray patch first for about 5 minutes and then color the rest of my hair? These are semipermanent colors as I'm afraid of damaging my hair with permanent color.

Thanks for any help.
