I am so upset. After getting a great recommendation from a friend of mine to go to a hairdresser other than my own to get it done, I end up with disastrous results. I’ve been needing a change for years and I’ve been talking about it non stop. Since I actually had some “extra” money and have been on a beauty slump lately I decided to go ahead and get my hair done. My hair was dyed dark blue black last summer and I wanted to go either a light golden brown or a bright red. To do this I knew I needed to see a professional and I booked an appointment with my own hairdresser. This actually took a lot of coaxing on my part because she just didn’t want to do it.
After complaining to a good friend of mine about my hairdresser not wanting to do my hair and asking me to take a vacation day to get it done, she told me to go to her hairdresser. Her hair always looks cute and another friend went and got her hair done and came out beautifully. I just don’t get a break.
So after the first two bleaching processes my hair turned green. Which I thought may happen because it was a blue black. I kept my cool and hoped that she could get it done. After four hours and four bleach processes later, I decided to go with a red. There was no way I can get a light golden brown at this point. Well after a total of six hours later, I ended up with two noticeably different shades of red and a $400 bill! She didn’t tell me that she was going to charge me $85 for EACH bleaching process. WTF! I look at it when I get home and it looks absolutely horrible with some pieces of my hair still black!
She is a long time friend of the family of my friend’s so I call her to tell her about this. I couldn’t even tell hubby. I just told him she charged me $200 and he saw I was noticeably upset so he didn’t say much more. At this point I know it definitely has to be fixed and my long locks are going to have to be chopped off afterwards. It was just way too much hair dye. I definitely don’t want to dye my hair back to black because it’s a pain to get rid of it. I also definitely don’t want to go back to her and would like to go back to my hair dresser to fix it. But I don’t want to pay to get it done. I would like to ask her for my money back at least half of it so that I can go somewhere else to fix it. Because at this point, I don’t want to have my hair done by her. And now my hair, that flows down to my waist, may just have to be chopped to my shoulders and layered out to get rid of all that hair.
What would you do to resolve this? Needless to say I’m severely depressed right now.
