My hair is ruined! What should I do? Now with before and after pics

I have been with the same stylist for nearly 10 years now. I spent nearly 6 hours at the salon last weekend, and for the first time ever since being with her, I HATE my hair. I can't stand to look in the mirror. It is my fault really, I asked for something that wasn't really achievable with my hair, and she didn't refuse to do it since we're kinda friends(we went to HS together and have mutual friends). It is the color, not the cut, that I loathe. I wanted my hair to be a light brown shade rather than the super dark almost black brown it was. She tried a couple different dye removers, but nothing was working, so she ended up super highlighting it, and because my hair has been so processed, it ended up like 50 different colors. I have orange and white and every color in between. It's embarrassing. When I left the salon she told me at my next visit in 6 weeks she could get it closer to what I wanted. I can't wait that long. So my question is, do I call her and tell her I need something done now, or go to someone else? I don't want to make her mad, and she's already upset with me for wanting to change my hair so drastically.

I don't know *too* much about hair, but IMO I would call her and get it done now? I mean... as a hair stylist, I think she should know that you don't want to walk around 6 weeks with funky colours in your hair. Also, shouldn't making your client happy be one of the priorities? (the other being making sure your hair doesn't fall out etc.) This is all IMO of course, but I hope you can get it figured out!!

I would call her. It does seem like she's trying to make you happy since she said she'd be able to get the color closer to what you want next time. I wonder why she told you to come back in 6 weeks, does it have something to do with how many times hair can be dyed at a time? I hope you're able to get it fixed, it sucks having hair you don't like. I've hid in hats for weeks before waiting for my hair to grow out.

Oh, 6 weeks is just my usual appointment. Nothing to do with what she just did to my hair. I almost just want try and tone it or something myself, but its always a disaster whenever I try to do at home color

my moms a hair stylist, ill ask her tomorrow. but whenver you go to a lighter color it is a lot harder to do and it really damages your hair.
one of my friend dyed her hair black and wanted to go to a light brown- my mom refused to touch it.

maybe you can try the demi/semi permanent dyes? those don't really damage your hair as much since they don't contain ammonia and fade away gradually after 1~2 months.. so if you really can't stand the color of it right now, and don't want to go talk to her about, you could maybe give those a try. Hope something works out!

Im with Carol on this one...so sorry about your hair..a similar situation happened to me years ago..which is why I never died again. However I just dyed it over with a temp garnier which had a lot of conditioner and grew it out..hope this helps..and hope it gets better your hair is gorgeous.

I would recommend using Revlon if you want to try it yourself. I played around a lot with hairdye when I was in high school and that brand was the least damaging for me.

Thanks ladies I think I am going to head over to Sallys to get a good demi and tone the highlights down, and that way I can talk to the people there about what the best color would be so it doesn't come out super dark. I'm thinking a dark ash blonde as that shouldn't darken my brown hair but should even out the crazy highlights. I hope. lol. I am meeting my bf's dad for the first time in a few weeks and don't want to look like a crazy person.

Success!! :

I put a demi in ash blonde over all the highlighted areas, and now they are very subtle and a uniform color. I am so happy this worked! I will try and post some pics later Thank you all for the suggestions and support
