My hair disaster

My hair is a medium to dark brown and I normally get highlights and low lights in it, but I decided to try something different this year.

The person who normally does my hair moved so I needed a new hairdresser. This lady had cut my hair one time so I figured she would be fine to do my color. WRONG!

I was about 5 % grey so I figured my best bet might be to get my hair colored instead of the highlights and lowlights. Sounds fairly simple right? NOT!

I specifically said I do not want any RED in my hair. My hair was red. I was quite upset. It was not a flaming red just a red that I did not like. I questioned her about and she said it was honey colored. I thought it was just me so I asked my husband what color is my hair he said “its red.”

By this point I was feeling like Lucille Ball but it was not that red but to me it might have well as been.

I decided not to go back to the person who screwed it up even though she would have had to fix it for free. I figured if she did not listen to me the first time what was the point of trying again.

The young lady I went to  listened to me and my hair is exactly what I wanted.

It frustrates me when people do not listen especially if I am paying them $85.00 for a service. I paid another $75.00 to get it fixed.

The lessons I learned were to never trust just anyone with my hair. Never go back to the first place again.

I found a new hairdresser that I will continue to go to from now on. She had to clean up someone else’s mess, but she did a great job and most of all she listened. She even fit me in last-minute which says a lot. When someone pays money for a service they should always get what they asked for nothing less.

  1. That’s terrible! It’s unfortunate that some people don’t have the intention to satisfy and do a good job before getting paid..it’s only for the money 😦 I’m glad your hair is how you want it now. Hairdressers and dentists are always the hardest to replace!

  2. Why don’t you killed her? 🙂 So you’ve paid first $85 and then another $75 to get it fixed. That’s $160. And then you went to another hairdresser to get it fixed again. Other money, other fun. SO, WHY DON’T YOU KILLED THE FIRST HAIRDRESSERRRRR? :))

  3. Years ago I learned to find a colorist through references from people that used her (or him). Not everyone is good with color. You are lucky the second one turned out to be great. She earned a good tip!

    • The second one was great I will go back to here and next time just stick to my highlights and lowlights. She said you can consider this hair color a low light and just get highlights but that’s another $75.00 right now I feel like I have spent enough on my hair lol.
