So, I decided for whatever random reason that instead of driving out to Monticello today or going over and shooting the old part of town in Culpeper that I would get my hair highlighted and cut...

I think my instructions were pretty dang specific. Restablish the layers that have grown out and then add a few and I did say few lighter brown to caramel highlights. So, I get back this evening straighten my hair so I can see the color and i'm blonde. Not completely thank god but a hell of a lot more than i've ever dreamed of imagining myself... I did even make a joke about how I was portuguese and had no intention of ever pretending that I can be a blonde.. she laughed.. I thought she got the joke. I don't think I can wear a baseball hat to work tomorrow I definately can't wrap a scarf around my head... This sucks.. :(:(

My aunts always said nothing pisses a woman off more than a broke down car or bad hairstyle.. the car thing I've understood since my teens but the hair i'm just now getting an idea of what they meant. Somebody please admit that they wore a mullet twenty years ago or had the bowl cut something............ I don't want to go out in public until I get this fixed.

well, Sari, I agree, I hate a bad hairstyle so I understand your being mad. But are you sure it's bad, even if it's not what you planned? Will you pm a photo?

Can you get something at the store and color over it? In all my 40 something years I've never done anything to my hair but cut it so I am clueless.

I'm sorry. I REALLY hate it when that happens. Do your friends agree it's a bummer? If so, I'd recommend putting a wash out (semi-permanent) color on it (won't damage your hair).

Yes, bad hair sucks. I used to color my own in my 20s. I've since gotten sick of it all and cut it extra short. It is starting to get lots of gray (or in my case, white), but every time I go to change the color, I wind up hating it and chopping it short again. I'm not sure why it's considered okay for men to go gray, but for women, it's some sort of tabboo. Anyway, good luck with it and try not to worry. I'm sure you think it looks worse than it actually is. Let them try to fix it. If you still hate it, cut it every six weeks until it grows out. Not many women do what I did and chop it all off. I'm not in love with my hair short, but it sure is a heck of a lot less maintenance.

i'm not home anymore. My sister LIKES it.. but her hair is currently sporting orange highlights so she doesn't get a vote. The wash out color is a good idea but the lady told me I could go back if I wasn't happy so i'd hate to go through the trouble of dying it at home if she can fix it in the salon.

When I get a bad haircut I just shave it off and start again. You could always try it if its really that bad.


Always happy to hear some critique
