Patchy dye job at the Salonby RejouirPosted 1 week, 6 days ago
I recently went to a fancy salon to have my hair professionally dyed. It was a pretty dark brown and she lifted it to a coppery color. During the haircut, she pointed out some spots that hadn't lifted as much and that we could do highlights next time I came in (6-8 weeks). It wasn't until I got home that I saw how patchy the dye job looks. I love the overall color but I feel like it shouldn't be patchy? I paid 200 dollars so I feel very conflicted. I emailed her and politely asked if she could fix the spots. She said it was because the ends didn't get light enough and she again mentioned the highlights or that I could come in and she could dye those spots darker.
I'm not sure if my expectations are too high here. I want light hair, but now I'm going to have to pay to get extra highlights on top of what I already paid? and if it's because the ends didn't get lighter then why are the dark patches closer to my head? In my mind, it feels like she didn't do the best job but again I'm not totally aware of the process. Can anyone offer advice?

IIt's hard to believe a professional hairdresser did this to your hair. Was your hair virgin or had it been previously dyed and with what, and when? hair history is important.
I fail to undesratdn wat technique she used. If your hair had very dark hair-dye on the ends, it can be very difficult to remove and lift, but as some ends have been lifted, it's just, weird. I think you should ask for a refund because now you definitely need a color correction which is expensive. In doubt, she should have done a strand test to see how your hair lifted from scalp to end.
You need to find someone who knows what she is doing and is willing to take the time to correct this, and lifghten your hair. but it probably is a bit expensive.

My hair had been dyed years ago but had grown out so it was actually much lighter on the bottom. She started bleaching at the top and didn't do the bottom as the bottom was pretty much already the coppery color I wanted.. Then she put something on during the shampoo process to "pull the color through". She did not explain to me in detail what she was doing. When I originally told her I wanted to lighten my hair all over, she suggested I do temporary color which didn't make sense to me and should have been a red flag.
I've had my hair lightened before and this didn't happen so I believe it was due to error on her part. It sounds like you agree.
Thank you for the insight!
