$87 later...

Oh. My. Gosh. This has been quite the emotional day!!

Let me just start by saying I will never dye my hair blonde again! That was the biggest hair mistake I've made in quite some time. How did it look? Well, you'll never know, because I refused to take a picture of it! It was freaky comic book yellow on top, buttery on the bottom, and something like orange splotchy inbetween?! HORRID. Lesson learned there. No wait, I had to spend $87 before learning my lesson completely. First, I bought a substitute hair dye at Wally-World. Then, I decided I better call the 1-800 number on the box and get a consultation. Their advice? Go to a salon and have it professionally fixed. Thanks a heap, lady. So, after calling around at 2:30p on a Friday afternoon, I found a couple of places who would do it and who had openings and had a brown they could use on me... Ugh. So annoying. Anyway, I went to this dear little shop in Sun City Grand, Sunrise Hair Salon. I can't remember the name of the lady that worked on me, but she was so sweet. Early 50s from Bolivia. Very chatty, but she did good work. I'm back to my original boring color.

Danny was sorry that he asked me to go blonde. The sylist suggested I just get highlights next time and never do this again. My scalp is so sore from all the chemicals that have been on it today! LESSON LEARNED!

Amie, Im so sorry that this happened to you When you said you had that solution in your hair.. I was praying that it would go smooth but usually that much of a change with blonde usually doesn't come out at home.. I'm glad it was fixable Blonde is a tough color to go to. What a horrible day sending cyber hugs your way... The lady did a great job. Havea good Saturday I think the worst is over.

I had the same experience, but spent the big money first and then had to fix it myself. Your hair isn't boring in color, it looks good on you! I would go with highlights too. Have a great day today. Hugs!!

So sorry it didn't work! Definitely big hugs sent to you. The trouble we go through to amuse our husbands! Glad it was fixable.
