My Hair Turned Orange!!!
Posted 09 April 2008 - 01:10 AM
I have dark brown hair (use over the counter stuff because of my greys) but dark brown is my natural hair color. So decide for the wedding I wanna go medium brown with some blonde, honey highlights.... Think its not going to be a big deal right? WRONG!
So Saturday I go and tell her what I want. She says well right now we will jsut do the medim brown color so your hair doesnt get too damaged in one day, so thought that would be okay.
Well she puts this stuff on by hair to "get rid of the color" so basically my hair is likgh BRIGHT orange and blonde. She said she had to do this because she doesnt want to put color on top of color. So then two hours later she puts the medium brown color I want on. Well the salon didnt have the best lighting and after being there for 3 hours I was in a hurry and had to be somewhere....
Soooo The brown never really hung on to the hair and now its blotches of red, orange and brown..... OMG I called her the next day and said I had to get in right away and the soonest my schedule works with their isnt till thurday. So in the mean time I am walking around like a cheetah/homeless person with their hair on fire!!!

This is the story of my life!!! I use box dye all the time to cover my greys too!! Then in the summer and for my wedding I like to have it lighter with blonde. Now while I do like the carmel/honey color...on me it is more orange and brassy and I hate it. All my friends get their hair the way the want it and I always hate my hair!!! I have had so many people do it because I thought it was them and now I think it's me!!!
This new gal I went to 2 months ago said that it would take her a while to bring the blonde up..but she put bleach or whatever in it and then did an all over color on the rest to cover the grey and the highlights spacing turned out really good and I loved that part...but the "blonde" highlights were orange...whatever though she told me it might not work the first time so I let it be.
Then I go last friday for round two. I tell her okay I love how you spaced the highlights last time I just want those lighter and maybe you can go a shade or two lighter on the overall color. What did I get?? Well the whole top part of my hair is orange! You can see maybe 3 blonde streaks and a little dark but the dark isn't coming through as much so it looks more like all one colore vs highlights and she apparently did only a partial so the whole underneath is DARK!
I am freaking out now because the next time I go is right before the wedding!!! I don't know if I should go to someone else or just cross my fingers
Sorry to hijack your thread w/ my drama...but I really wanted to let you know that you aren't the only one!!!

She did warn me that the boxed color will have an impact on how the salon color takes (hence the reason she made me promise not to do it).
I'll keep my fingers crossed for you! Let us know how it goes.
Happily married since 2008
