My Balayage has Gone Grey!

My Balayage has Gone Grey!


I was looking for some advice. I had a balayage colour done recently - brown at the top and blonde at the bottom - my hair turned quite brassy, and I explained to the hairdresser that I wasn't happy, they told me to come back to fix it, so I did, but now the blonde is grey!

How can I go about fixing this? I do not want to go back to that salon. Can I buy a dye? If so, what colour, or would you recommend going to another salon? I would hate to put a box colour on and it turn into another disaster.

I’m so embarrassed and angry that this has happened.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated,

Hi Michelle,

Oh no! Don’t buy a box dye and attempt to fix it yourself. I would recommend speaking with the salon you went to and explain that you’re unhappy and ask for a soft toner. If you’re adamant you don’t want to return, then go to a new salon and explain the situation. In the meantime, wash your hair with a cleansing shampoo, such as L’Oréal Metal Detox to help get the grey out.
