Iíve had an ombre hair disaster. I used to have long dark hair and was after an ombre effect on the ends. I had balayage highlights done last week but didnít want highlights all over so decided to go elsewhere to have it írectifiedí. The end result is unfortunately awful. Instead of dying the whole top dark brown, they just painted over the highlighted sections and it doesnít match my colour so is very patchy. The ombre itself is not well integrated and is an unflattering ash colour, which also comes up quite high. With this much hair there is no hiding it. Iíve already spent a huge amount of money so canít justify another salon trip. If I use a DIY dye will this work or will the bleached ends create a problem? What are my options? Thanks in advance!

Hi Alexis, The options you have are a little bit limited but I think the best one is to use a semi permanent colour all over. If you choose something a colour of shades lighter than your natural colour with a warm tone of colour that you like, so gold, copper or red. I would suggest you buy 2 boxes of colour and apply all over to dry hair. This should totally tone and blend and give you a more subtle but multi tonal effect. The disadvantage is that it will shampoo out but you can use colour conditioner to help prevent the fade or re apply every month. I donít suggest you using a permanent colour on long thick hair as it will be too hard for you to get an even result. Good luck

Hi, I usually dye my hair a dark brown (itís mousy naturally.... with a few grey ones!), but last summer it went a really nice light brown/ dark blonde in the sun. I have tried several different dyes to keep it dark/medium blonde, but it started to get a ginger tint to it. I put a dye stripper on it a couple of days ago, itís now a nice blonde colour, but still looks a little ginger in certain light...... I really want to keep it the same shade of medium blonde, but without the ginger tinge. Should I put another medium blonde dye on it? Will it work? Or is there something else I need to do? Unfortunately Iím on a budget, so can go out and spend £20 on each of about 3/4 products, £200 in a salon. If you could help solve my problem I would really appreciate it..... Iíve got a big weekend this week and donít want to spend it paranoid about being ginger.... not that there is anything wrong with red hair, just doesnít suit me Thank you, hope to hear something from you soon

i Micquelle, The reason you get what you call the ginger tinge is because your natural underlying tone in your hair will be orange. Underlying tone is like undercoat for paint it is the supporting colour and gives the tone. So if you donít want the tone (ginger) and you are going to do it yourself you must use a medium ash blonde- the ash tone is blue/green and will neutralize the orange. Donít take the colour all the way through your hair only use it on the roots and orange/ginger areas. You can refresh the mid lengths and ends with the medium blonde when needed but use a lower volume of developer apply to wet hair. I really hope this makes sense?

I have a friend whoís hair is yellow-ey with some orange in it. She wants to go beige, greyish and I donít really want to bleach it again. Is there a product you know that would work to get her lightened well, and the tone she wants? I only have a Sallyís by me. Itís not great, I know, but itís what Iíve got haha!

Hi Celena, I think you would be able to get away with doing a semi of a graphite colour, this will cool the yellow down, make the orange more beige looking as beige is 2 parts ash and one part warm, so will cool it but not totally. It should also give that lovely greyish colour that is so on trend at the moment. Violet shampoo and conditioner will really help her maintain her colour result too and I am sure you will be able to get all you need from Sally. Thanks
