For what its worth, I like the way it looks. But I can understand how it feels not to be happy and to walk out with something you don’t want…. I would go back to him and demand him to fix it. Clearly he didn’t do what you asked for and I doubt that it will lighten any time soon.

OMG I am so sorry this happened to you.

Not a hairdresser but you need to get your money back! The bottom picture has very thin highlights  with a dark blonde light brown highlight?

Yours are very thick with a chocolate brown and different blonde. I would wash it out asap. That will get the color to lighten (slightly) but you will have to go back and get highlights all over again. Just so you can break up the brown.

PS I wouldn’t ask him to fix it because I don’t think he has the skill to give you what you want. Maybe speak to a manager?

@Dolcebabe:  Wow, he did a terrible job (not because your hair is ugly, butbecause it’s so far from what you wanted). Do you have photos of what it looked like before?

Also, this article has execellent tips on what to do when you are not happy with your hair service. I hope everything turns out how you wish (and definitely get your money back).

@Dolcebabe:  depending on what is under your brown (if you had bleached hair he dyed over it might be a little damaging) but i would suggest going to someone else too. for some reason he still has a job. that looks nothing like the picture. im a hair dresser and have found that foiling straight back (the tiger stripe effect) doesnt work for natural looking highlights. this is the basic way hair dressers are taught to highlight when they are in school. looks great for those who like the chunky effect. i suggest doing some shopping around, stop random people who’s hair you like and ask who did their hair.

@Dolcebabe:  and idk if they use it where you live but malibu treatments will lighten the color 1-2 shades and normally only cost 20-40 depending on length/thickness. it will brighten up your blond too so it wont have a brassy tone from the brown bleeding onto the blond. i suggest trying that if you can find anyone who does them. they are a treatment to strip impurities from your hair so they arent damaging, they will just bring out the shine.

@Dolcebabe:  it doesnt look bad its just no where near what you wanted. it is totally fixable, but do a little research before having more highlights put in. show them your origonal pic, and tell them you’re getting married. it might make them feel bad and give you a little discount. lol never hurts to play up the frazzled bride card. i know ive fallen for it and did color half off once or twice.

@Dolcebabe:  oh and dont let them talk you into a bleach bath. yes it will lighten the color but it is so hard to control how even it comes out.

@Dolcebabe:  I’m a hairstylist. He went chunky on your highlights and lowlights. They don’t look bad by any means but I don’t think it’s what you asked for.  It sounds to me like he thought putting in lowlights would be less maintenance for you. If you asked for brighter though and brought me that picture, I would done all highlights. He also didn’t leave the highlights in long enough nor did he tone them. I would recommend using a clarifying shampoo and leaving it on for just a couple of minutes. After you rinse, wash with a brightening shampoo. Brightening shampoos are purple or blue shampoo used to counteract yellow/orange hues in the hair. OTC, I believe there is one called Shimmer Lights. After you wash with that leave it on for a couple minutes. Rinse and put a good conditioner on and leave it in for five minutes before rinsing it out. This won’t cure your situation but it should help.

I would probably go back to him and tell him what you got is not what you asked for. Show him the picture again. He can lighten you up without lightening up the hair he already lightened before. He can put a few foils over the hair he colored. After he lightens it up, he should give you a complimentary conditioning treatment or glaze to help recondition your hair since he made the mistake.
