If you hate your patchy hair dye, what do you do? Well, let me explain.
You are very lucky you have made it this far in life and that too, without any major disasters with hair dye. Many of us have seen many a hair color fail and we scream, cry or abuse, and yet, most of us go to the internet for help.
So now, let’s concentrate on how to address the stylist in the salon on what to do.
In case you have natural blonde hair, it would become yellow and Barbie like, if you use the wrong products.
Make sure you instruct your stylist to give you a cool toned blonde color. You have to be specific, and I mean very specific.
Your shades should be ashy or in cool colors, and avoid all the rest.
This kind of brassiness can happen to all of us. Orange tones are stubborn and difficult to deal with.
Again, you got to tell your stylist what you want. You have to make it very clear what you want. They have to know if you prefer an ashier shade.
You wanted an ashy blond. Oopps! it’s gone too ashy.
See if you can ask your stylist for golds or peach or copper colors. These are all warmer tones. A good colorist can do it.
This is due to the hair dye not having done its job completely.
A good colorist can only do the job. No one else.
What happens if you take a box dye and go home. The issue is that the color of your hair is super flat and ugly.
You got to tell your stylist to do a subtle balayage or strobing, adding lighter tones with a free hand technique, to give your hair that look that’s multi–tonal.
You wanted something, you got something else! A few subtle baby lights, instead, you got super-stripy, chunky highlights.
Hey! balayage look would be better than the stripy look.
When what you wanted went wrong i.e. instead of a gradual ombre you got a tell-tale line of color.
Here, one’s stylist needs to work how to blend out and diffuse the lines of color.
Here, you got patch work or spots of color, instead of the whole hair.
Hey! if you personally do not give the exact picture to your stylist, then it’s not going to help you.
