Talk me down,please!

I went to the salon tonight. Spent three + hrs getting my hair foil colored. I have a lot of hair.

My hair looks the same color as Trumps!!!! OmfuckingG!!!!!!

I am sitting hear realizing this at this moment. It is blond. It is yellow in places. It looks so fucking brassy and fake!
I am dying of embarrassment. Jeeeeez!

1. You'll be fine. Having dyed blonde hair has no effect on your political beliefs. Trump was a hateful

idiot before he dyed his hair. It may look better than you think. Besides, blondes have more fun!

6. Seriously trying to help here since I've experienced the same situation in the past.

Your two best options at this point are:

1) Return to the salon for correction - hopefully at their expense, not yours;

or

2) Wait it out for a couple of weeks. Sometimes the composition of your tap water can modify the brightness/brassiness of the color after a few washings. It all depends on the mineral content of your water. This is what worked for me, rather than risking over-processing by a return visit to the salon.

In either case, let the salon know of your dissatisfaction in case it becomes a larger issue later. As Judge Judy would ask: "Why did you wait so long before notifying them? It couldn't have been all that important to you."

My sympathies and my wish for good luck go out to you.

7. I know next to nothing about coloring hair. I frosted mine back in the last Ice Age


But thatís about it. My older sister started frosting hers when that was first a thingó late 1960s. Eventually all of her hair was bleached because of repeated frosting. Anyhow, when she thought her hair was too brassy, she used a toner on it and it helped a lot. She did let her hair settle down from being freshly colored. Then if she still thought it looked brassy, out came the toner. It isnít expensive, you can do it yourself and it might do the trick.

I would let the salon know you were not pleased with the outcome. As suggested, they might even offer to fix it for free. Or at least suggest a toner color.

8. Here's what I did.

Long ago (like, 50 years) I was a silly brunette in early 20's who wanted to be platinum blonde. The salon bleached me until my hair was green. Tears followed, hours passed while they tried to fix it.

It was getting dark outside and I had had enough. I told them to just dye it back to dark brown.

No charge, of course.

9. I have a story like that, too.

Also in my 20's. My brown hair would turn all different colors in the summer, so I decided to go with black hair. I went to the pharmacy and picked up some color remover for hair and some black hairdye. I put the color remover in, waited the allotted time, and looked in the mirror (I thought I would be blond). My hair was bright red! (And I mean Bozo red). I put the black dye in, only to discover later on that my hair was a dark shimmery blue!
Soooo, I put a hat on my head and went back to the pharmacy for some brown hair dye.
My brothers and sisters were amused.

10. You have a lot of hair. Moron doesn't. You are Not like him.

Most of us have been there. I went for red hair; I got purple ... really purple. This was long before Kick Ass became a thing.

FWIW, I just went full denial and pretended nothing had happen.

Unless you get a buzz cut, just keep getting the ends trimmed off. Like kidney stones, this too will pass.

15. THIS

Is what I did!
Found out about purple shampoo.
Those like me who donít/didnít know. Purple is the opposite of yellow on the hair color spectrum. And maybe the wheel????
Anyway I am much blonder but not brassy! OMG. That was a trip and embarrASSing!
I did let the salon know but didnít let them have a chance to fix...
