I have had red hair for almost a year and over the weekend I decided it was time for a change. I wanted to chronicle it for you all so I took pictures at different intervals during my time at the salon.
Before- Red hair
This was taken about half way through. She lightened the bottom of my hair and darkened the top but it didn’t really turn out how I wanted it to. It sort of came out to how my hair was last summer. Enter the phoenix!!
And this is just me being goofy! HAHAHA!
Time to process again! Waiting, waiting, waiting…
After! Inside the salon:
After: Outside in sunlight
Overall the look I was going for was a subtle ombré effect. I wanted my hair darker but not black. Although she used a dark brown for the top of my hair it pretty much came out black 😦 so its actually darker than my natural hair color, which I am not really happy about. At the end she also put a toner on for a quick minute and made the ombré part of my hair darker as well. Fail. Ugh, but she said that the toner should wash out after a few washes and look closer to what I wanted. Here’s hoping she’s right. Although it wasn’t what I wanted, it doesn’t look bad. I am just having to get used to my hair being so dark.
What do you think? I’ll post another update once the color starts to fade or if I have to go back in and get it corrected.
