I went to may hair appointment with pictures of what I wanted my hair color to look like. I showed my stylist pics of Angelina Jolie on the cover of this month's W and pics of Stephanie Seymore and other not so famous brunettes with warm chestnut hair and gold highlights. I had light brown hair with gold highlights before. I specified that I wanted to maintain gold highlights. The colorist broght out swatches for me to look at and I told her they seemed very red to me. She said they would give me the brunette color. I picked the least red of the two swatches because I believed her!! She put the color all over my hair with no foils in it for highlights which concerned me but she said that where my old highlights would show through the new color giving me the look I wanted. Long story short I am now a redhead with no highlights and it is a DARK red. I was so shocked I just thanked her for doing my hair and left. I do not want to go back to the same place because after such a screw up I do not trust them with corrective haircloring. I am prepared to eat the cost of the original appointment but I hope I can change my haircolor to something warmer and more natural. This cool dark red is too unnatural for me, and I have important events coming up for which I would prefer what I originally wanted- brunette with golden highlights. Is there anyone who has had an experience like this who had their haircolor fixed? Did it damage your hair? Do I have to give up on golden highlights now? Can you even make a dark permanent red into a chestnut color at all?
