Needless to say, I'm not very impressed with it. I'm lightening up, and I'm quite lucky that my hair doesn't usually take too many visits to the hairdresser to be get back to a nice shade of blonde. I don't usually go through the yucky orange-y colour people compain about.
Since going a dark shade of brown I've been to the HD once to start the process. They did a half a head of blonde foils. This was about 10 weeks ago.
I went to a different HD this time around (mainly as it was more convenient, and cheaper - and I'm tight with my pennies) and we decided that to speed up the process I'd get a full head of foils.
She only left the foils on for MAX 10-15 minutes!!
Now I'm no hairdresser, but I've been getting my hair done for going on 10 years, and most of that time I've been blonde... And in my experience, they usually leave the bleach on for about 25/30 minutes!
I could tell when she was drying it that my roots weren't blonde... :(
They're a funny pale orangey colour that blends in with my scalp!
This is all a disaster, I tell you!
I really hate paying for something and not being happy!
I've tried to take a half-decent photo..
Excuse the red marks that have suddenly appeared on my head. You can see the old blonde from my HD 10 weeks ago... And then you can see the obviously fugly orange where she has put bleach on and washed it out far too quickly! You can also see that my natural colour is not very dark!
So after a nice big rant on Twitter and some helpful hints from Twitter friends, I'll be calling the HD tomorrow. Hopefully she is understanding. I'm always concerned with calling HD's and going back for them to fix it.
The Boyfriend's helpful hint - "If you got a spray job on your car that you weren't happy with, you would call them back and get them to fix it, wouldn't you?"
Yes, but I don't have to sit there for 2 hours while they respray the car! You can't really drop your hair off and pick it up when it's done, now can you?!
Ahh the simple minds of males.
I hope you all had a lovely weekend!
