So last Monday I headed to get my hair cut & colored after work. I decided I wanted to try Ombre hair color, where the color on top is darker & fades down to blonder at the bottom.
I guess it's kind of risky since it can look like grown out roots rather than a fresh, new look. But, I'm all about changing up my hair & trying new things. So, I had a six pm appointment on Monday & it took forever, like almost three hours. So, by the time my hair was cut, the stylist was drying it & before I knew it, I was rushing out of the salon before I had a chance to really look at my hair.
By the time I got home it was after nine and I didn't even truly know what my hair really looked like. I say hello to Mike & Cam & I notice that Mike is looking at me funny. Mind you, Mike likes basically any color or cut I've ever done, so I do value his opinion. After inspecting it, he decided, "It's different." And then he said, "I guess it just looks like you haven't had your roots done in a long time." After grabbing a mirror & heading to the bathroom for further inspection, I kind of panicked a little. I had spent a lot of money & I had to go to work the next day. I decided to wait & get my co-worker's opinions before making a decision. After talking to a few girls, I decided I had to contact the salon to let them know. I was very tempted to just make an appointment elsewhere to save myself from embarrassment or awkwardness, but I could not justify spending even more money.
So, this is a picture I took before straightening my hair yesterday. Not great quality, but it gives you an idea. The stylist just did not blend the colors enough so there is a distinct line between the dark to the light. I have never ever gone back to a salon to have a color or cut adjusted so I was not looking forward to calling. Who answers the phone? The girl who did my hair! Ugh. Well, she didn't seem thrilled that I didn't like it, but why would she? Long story short, I go back tomorrow & I'm really hoping she can fix it! The blond she did is also way too brassy/orangey looking.
The picture above just does not do it justice, but trust me when I say that it does not look good. I have gotten several dozen opinions since I work with so many different people and everyone agrees that I need to go back. I'm not sure what to expect, but I surely hope the girl doesn't think I'm going to pay to have it fixed! Tomorrow should be nice & awkward though!
