Attn: Hairstylists - Hair Color Question
Posted 25 February 2008 - 12:36 PM
I usually use box color during the winter and then get blonde highlights w/ dark color throughout in the summer.
It seems that whenever I get my professional highlights done I don't like it and I don't know if it's just me not knowing exactly what I want or what but the blonde always seems to be brassy and not light enough.
Now this last place i went to, I really liked the girl and she got the highlights small and natural like I wanted ect...but I still have the same color problem. She says it's because I had box dye on it and she doesn't know what's in the box and that it's having trouble pulling it up? Is this right? Or can she put a different level on it or leave it on longer or what It's so frustrating...because I want the blonde highlights for the wedding in 3 months and I want to make sure by then she can get it right??

I susally am PRO Redken, but... for reddish hair (I pull gold) I like to use Color Graphics by Matrix, they have a special pigment additive that counter acts the red/gold look. Maybe they only use one type of highlighting in the salon, and they don't have a color lightening system with this. Anything that is blue pigmented or green will counteract your orange/brassy hair. Does that make sense? it is kinda hard to explain (think of the color wheel)
If I lived closer, Michelle, I 'd do your hair for you!

But see this is where my confusion is...why don't these hairstylists know this?? Granted, maybe the first time they need to get used to my hair and I never like it so I never go back to the same person...but this time I will go back to her because I liked everything else...but she only get's 2 trys!
She said that we can work towards making it lighter....so hopefully that is right too.

Feel free to ask me if you have any more questions. Do you know by chance of what products they use there?

Hopefully next time she can get it how you want it. Good luck! Just really stress to her what you want.
