I've just come back from the hairdresser from having my roots redone with highlights. It's a disaster. I've gone from being blondish to platinum blonde with large chunks missed out altogether. Even my very diplomatic husband said as I walked through the door 'It's very blonde, isn't it'.
Am going to try to make another appt at a different hairdressers later this week but is there anythign that I can do in the meantime?
Gotta go cook in a minute so was just going to say often something like This will cover over anything too scary in the meantime and give you a more toned down beigey blonde tone, and is 8 wash so really is temporary so you could get it out when you are able to go back to a hairdresser by simply having a big hair-wash with some clarifying shampoo.
Some of these Wella ones would be okay depending on your tone, but stay away from the ash ones if you are too blonde - you might go a bit silver or purple otherwise, you'd be better off being beigey for a week.
That sort of thing has happened many times to me before, I'm embarrassed to say. As a young whipper snapper, I had a tendency to go into a salon and say 'I fancy a colour change' and then end up with something garish that didn't suit me. I always went back to the same salon, cringeing, and they tended to either highlight it up if it was too dark, or put a toner over the top if it was too light.
Good luck cairnterrier, and don't feel embarrassed about the emotion, its a huge part of our identity, our appearance <don't tell anyone, here's a hug>
Yep a new salon and a lovely young man called Ben. Ended up having to have my roots blended in again and the rest of my hair dyed darker but it looks fab now and am soooooooo happy. It's pathetic really! Hope yours go well valium and that we get the sunshine so that we can get out and about with our fabulous new 'dos.
