Jayceedee:  Can you not just go back and tell her it’s nothing like the photo and see if someone else at the salon can correct it?

I think you might have the two terms mixed up. That reference picture you posted looks like ‘balayage’ and not ‘ombre.’ Not like that would’ve really helped your hairdresser much since she still didn’t get anywhere close to the picture you brought in. I don’t like the idea of going back to the same person who already messed up once, so I’d go somewhere new. I would try going to another salon (that gets good reviews for coloring) for a consultation and see what they can do now that your hair has already been colored.

Jayceedee:  You should tell her that you feel like it’s too blonde and ask her if she can make it less blonde and more brown. If she seems hesitant, I’d find a skilled colorist and him/her fix it. Your hair type looks like it would be similar to mine and and my hair is bleached out and is still super healthy so I wouldn’t worry too much about damaging it. Just make sure you condition your hair if you don’t already.

 

Edit: By less blonde, I mean too much of it. And I agree with PP. She should have done balayage versus ombre. A lot of hairdressers don’t know how to properly do ombre’s. This is an issue where I live (in LA) so I imagine it’s like that everywhere else.

Jayceedee:  You have every right to be upset. Your hair doesn’t look bad, but it doesn’t look anything like your inspiration photo. It should be an easy fix for a more experienced/skilled colorist so don’t let it bother you too much. Post a pic when you get it fixed! 🙂

I wish the ombré thing would die. It looks like grown out roots most of the time.
