I am still having to drive 4 hours to my hometown to have my hair colored, because I have only found one hairdresser that does a quality job. I have tried 4 different hairdressers in my new city, and I’ve been unhappy with each one. Sigh. I love my hometown hairdresser, I just hate having to travel so far.
The most recent experience was this past weekend. I went to the lady that styled my hair for my wedding, and asked for an all-over root touch-up. Two hours later, I walk out with my roots a much darker (and hideous) blonde than the rest of my hair, and it’s very noticeable. Looks awful.
I am going back tomorrow to have her “fix” it. We’ll see how that goes.
Anyone else have difficulty finding a quality colorist?

OH! And I left out the fact that the toner she used gave part of my hair a grayish/silver tint. Mess.

Rue7514: When you have someone you love who knows your hair and how it colours it can be hard to find someone new. There’s a learning curve with dye – and eveyone’s hair is different. I’ve been colouring mine for 18+ years, mostly myself unless I’m doing something really crazy. I’ve had issues with new colourists not listening to me – my hair pulls brass when you lighten, but then will go white very quickly (it’s weird) it also takes red better than other people (which is my colour of choice).
I think finding someone who will listen to your ‘hair story’ is important.

find out what color line/formula your hometown person uses and then call salons in your area to find someone who uses the same products. Give them the formula you are happy with, and it should be fine.
