Is my hair too dark? Salon messed up and 9 days away!

I think it looks good!  It will probably lighten up a little bit over the next few days as you wash it.

I’d either go back to the salon and have them lighten it a bit or dye the extensions to match. A good salon would probably do either at no cost to you.

@hollyberry4:  I don’t think it’s bad. Wash it everyday between now and then and it’ll lighten a bit.

Hairstylist here… looks good but if it bothers you I highly suggest you return back to the same salon and they should fix it for free. All it would need is a quick bleach shampoo to lighten it up a bit!

It looks natural! It’s definitely darker, but if I hadn’t seen your other pics, I wouldn’t know.

I think it looks nice. The same thing happened to me recently and I ended up going with an ombre color which brightened things up. Bonus: ombre looks killer if you are planning on a braided style.

without seeing your ‘before’ picture, I think it looks great 🙂 

I always find when I first dye my hair I like to use a tanner or bronzer so I dont look as pale until my hair lightens up a bit, maybe that will help? 

Def would not go back and get it lightened, bleach, argh!! sounds like a disaster to me specially so close to the wedding.

@hollyberry4:  1. I think it looks great! 2. I wouldn’t bleach your hair this close to your date, in case something goes wrong 3. If you go buy some cheap shampoo and use it everyday or every other day it’ll lighten up! Good luck, it looks really pretty on you though!

@hollyberry4:  The blue Dawn dish soap helps. I know that sounds weird, but it will lighten it up little by little. Just make sure to condition really well.

@hollyberry4:  I just looked at your makeup trial post and to be totally honest, I love this darker color on you!  I think it looks amazing with your skin tone and looks so much more rich.  I think you pull it off beautifully.
