hair dye -any hairdressers about?

(2 Posts)

I'm hoping someone can help me out with a colour recommendation. I've been dying my hair red for a while using affinage b red, my hair had lots of highlights in it so the top was lighter than the bottom. I finally bleached the rest at the weekend and dyed it. The result looks fine, but the shade isn't quite what I'm after, it's a little too orange toned and maybe a shade light. What I'm after is a kind of rich ruby red, something like this

Can anyone recommend a good colour to achieve this? Ideally I'd prefer to use a salon colour as I have a lot of hair so they work out better value and don't trash the condition as badly! Trying to look at shade charts online is a mare! The attached picture shows the current colour, I don't think it needs lightened more thankfully.

Dainty bump...

I'm looking at wella colour touch chart, wondering if the 77/45 or 66/45 might work? Not sure whether to add anything else, and my local sally is useless for shade charts!
