    Home Hair Coloring Results in Brassy Hair Highlights!

    Whitney asks

    I just high lighted my hair with lighter blonde streaks. I have dark blonde dyed hair with lighter streaks. Naturally my hair colour is brown so i just high light the roots but, they turned out brassy. I usually get them done at the salon but i wanted to save money. I’m afraid now it will cost double what it would have been. I don’t want to dry my hair out and do a hair coloring right away, or get rid of some the streaks that are already there. I just want my hair back with my darker roots! Please help me!


    It sounds like the chemical wasn’t on your hair long enough to effectively lift enough of your own natural hair coloring out. The problem you have now is best treated by a professional. Don’t color over your roots again or you will be adding more problems. The brassy streaks and your own virgin hair would grab the hair color differently, and the brassy streaks could turn a nasty muddy hair color.

    My best suggestion for you is to go to a beauty school that has a good reputation and let them fix your hair color dilemma. If you are near a good-sized metropolitan area, you may have a couple of choices. You could choose to go to a ‘advanced training center’ for your hair color correction or you could go to a regular beauty school.

    At the ‘advanced training center’ you would have a licensed hairdresser, who is receiving this training, work on your hair. Usually these schools are owned by a reputable hair salon in your area and they stand behind their work. They do all services at approximately half the price you would pay at your regular hair salon. I have seen lots of good work come from two of these schools in my area.

    Hair coloring correction at your regular beauty school may or may not be done. I would call in advance and let them know your problem. They won’t take you unless they are willing to show the students how to fix your specific hair coloring issue. The service would probably cost less here than the advanced training school and you can count on it taking longer.

    One more thing, have this corrected before new roots grow in . . . it will make life easier!
