    Funky Hair Color?

    Funky Hair Color

    Help! I’ve got a Funky Hair Highlights, my hair is black with yellow highlights.

    Sarah asks:

    After dying my hair black for the last 2 years I wanted my hair color to be a more chocolate-brown. I went to the hairdressers and they put a whole head of hair highlights through it and then a brown hair color toner on it. After leaving it a week I can’t even look at it . . . its black with yellow highlights in it and completely not what I asked for. I now want to put a whole head dye over it in chocolate-brown to get rid of the awful funky hair color any suggestions?


    Your hairdresser had the right idea. The process they went through in doing a heavy highlighting hair color process throughout your head and then toning back to a brown hair color was a good one. What wasn’t good . . . was the formula they used to tone back as the hair color didn’t hold for even a week.

    Was the hair color satisfactory to you when you left the hair salon? My guess is that it was or you would have told them you wanted it fixed immediately. If that’s the case, the level they used to color the highlighted hair areas was good but the developer wasn’t right.

    Learn how to communicate with your hairdresser. A hair stylist cutting a clients hair.

    My suggestion is to call your hairdresser and tell them what happened. At this point, they can adjust the formula and color back the hair with less damage and better coverage than what you might end up with in trying to do it yourself. They should be anxious to get it right for you. Don’t wait any longer to contact them.

    As long as they had your hair color satisfactory to you when you left the hair salon, and they didn’t let you leave with yellow highlights on black hair, I would trust them to be able to get it right. You don’t have to put up with funky hair colors! I wrote an article that could help you plan your conversation with the hair salon: Salon Hair Coloring Mistakes Should be Corrected, check it out.

    Ombre Hair Extensions in 3D

    Four strands of ombre hair extensions

    Ombre hair extensions with a twist!

    These new 3D Strand FX ombre hair extensions by Great Lengths are something a bit more novel in the look of hair extensions. These extensions will give a three-dimensional ombre color effect when combined with your regular base color. The 3D Strand FX collection comes in 4 jewel tones which won’t fade and transition in hue from top to bottom.

    • Sapphire – a pastel blue base changing into jewel blue at ends
    • Ruby – a pastel pink base changing into jewel red at ends
    • Emerald – a mint green base changing into jewel green at ends
    • Amethyst – a pastel purple base changing into jewel purple at ends

    Jewel toned hair and extensions may be considered a bit radical by some, but as this trend continues it’s taken on a softer, more user-friendly side. These pure pigment tones have changed from the initial neon pinks, purples, blues and greens to softer pastels and are more acceptable to more people. Although a full head of jewel toned funky hair color isn’t on most’s to-do list, the new ombre hair extensions will no doubt be a trend we’ll be seeing more of.

    These strands by Great Lengths are made from 100% human hair which has been painstakingly dyed by professionals to transition in color from tip to end. Another unique quality to these extensions is they are colorfast. This means they won’t fade like normal hair color.  The patented process of removing the pigment from the hair involves no bleach or ammonia derivatives. The original color is completely removed and textile dyes are used to replace the original color.
