She’s there to make you happy with your hair.  Most likely they’ll fix it for you at no charge (or minimal).  My bestie is a stylist and she’d never be upset if someone wanted their hair tweeked.  Just let her know it’s not exactly what you had in mind.

If she is a professional she should understand and treat you like a client, not a friend when she is at work.

Just tell her you’re not a big fan of the color on you. It shouldn’t offend her, it’s not like you’re saying “You did my hair wrong” you just don’t like being that dark and want to lighten it up a bit

I think it’s fine. I would probably say something like, “It’s a beautiful color, it’s just not me,” to let her know you don’t think she necessarily did anything wrong. Maybe take a picture of your natural hair color in? Sometimes it’s easier to work off of a visual rather than a verbal description.

@Mrs_Amanda:   That’s definitely possible, and if it wasn’t too far off, she may have thought it was close enough since you didn’t speak up. She’s not a mind reader :p And getting hair color right is tough, even for professionals- everyone’s hair reacts differently.

I had this happen to me once (color too dark) and what really helped was washing my hair several times with a harsher shampoo since I didn’t want to have 2 color processes done in such a short time.

The stylist I went to (who did the color) recommended Prell Shampoo or Aveda Rosemary Mint Shampoo or any kind of ‘clarifying’ shampoo (but she specifically had experience with the 2 I listed). 

I tried the Rosemary Mint kind (it wasn’t the actual Aveda brand but a knock off from Sally Beauty Supply) and conditioned really well.  I washed my hair every day (twice if I went to the gym after work) and after a few days I noticed a difference.  By a week later it wasn’t nearly as dark as before I started using the stronger shampoo.

I would not be afraid to tell your stylist that you’re not crazy about it.  I too was a little nervous telling mine, but she was totally cool with it.
