Guys I haven’t posted in a while because I’m coming up on my wedding day! (Yay! November! 🙂 )
However……. I have had failure after failure with hair trials and I just made a HUGE mistake last week on getting highlights with a new stylist. Styled down my hair looked so pretty! I was sooo excited, but when I styled it the next day I noticed a large section of bright hair on my dark hair it looks super unnatural because my old haircut had some odd layers that need to grow out but I can’t curl my hair everyday… and now I’m wondering if I should’ve just left my hair it’s natural dark colour. I wanted to have highlights to show dimension as per the usual strategy. Unfortunately, I just do not feel like myself I want to cry. Fiance says my hair looks great, and everyone says it looks good but I’m just unhappy. It’s not really anything the stylist did either. I’m getting super discouraged though since I could’ve used that money for something else and I’ve had some hair style trials with a few recommended stylists and they have been so unsuccessful. I don’t want to go back to the same stylist now since she honestly did nothing wrong she actually did exactly what I had showed her I wanted…
Ugh guys what do I do? I could go to my old stylist and beg forgiveness for my misguided ways and get it dyed back to my natural color. Has anyone else had some horrible hair trial experiences? My wedding is in November. I was going to make an appointment to have it dyed back next weekend to let my hair rest. I don’t want to ruin my hair either tho. I don’t think I can wait til the end of October to dye it back tho 🙁 every time I look in the mirror now I get stressed. Sighhhh help 🙁

You need to relax. It is just hair and your hair does not define you. You should never cry over hair. Stop obsessing over the color for the rest of the month and decide what to do for your wedding look at the beginning of October and then make the appropriate appointments to make it happen. If you continue to keep dying and styling you will end up with damaged hair and that is worse than a poor color choice. At the end of the day it’s just hair on your head; and what is really important is not what’s on your head but what is in it.

If you aren’t hapy then that is all that matters. Throw money at the problem if you can to get it fixed. As a long time hair dyer, you can just kep getting it done until you like it.. Last time i was in the salon a woman was in there for 6 hours geting her hair re-dyed. Dont worry about ruining your hair, supermodels get their’s dyed every week and theirs is fine. After the weddng you can give it a break.. Other option is hair extensions.. Find another person, and just go.

I’d honestly say give it a bit of time, you might love it in a little bit, if not then get it dyed at the beginning of October, either way it will still look how you want it for your wedding. No point in wasting money if you don’t have to.

I agree with the PP. Give it some time and give it a chance to grow on you. Maybe you’ll end up liking it more. I’ve had that initial shock many times after having a color change. You said it looks pretty when worn down. Have you considered doing a down or half down/up style for your wedding? You also said that there is a bright patch that doesn’t look right. Is it brassy from the bleach not taking? That would be an easy fix for your stylist to fix just that one piece. I’m not really sure I’m envisioning it correctly though. Could you possibly post a picture? You might be able to get better advice that way. 😊
