Today, I made the decision to lighten my hair from dark brown to blonde. I thought the stylist knew what she was doing, but I ended up with my hair fried off and orange. FML

It's not that difficult to lighten hair from a professional standpoint. My hair is naturally very dark. Stylist just bleaches my hair and tones it. If I want to do something else like depositing color they use specific products to move my roots from dark brown to blonde. idk

You should always do your research and know what to expect when bleaching. Pretty much every color other than dark blond will require toning and possibly more than one bleaching process.

Donald Drumpf won't be happy about that! You'll be the first deported.

I don't live in the US. He can't deport me. Lol

That's good for you then, I assume most americans will flee to Canada or elsewhere when he becomes president. I assume it'll go something like this: 2016: Trump will never win elections! 2017: Is Trump allowed to do that? 2018: I hope my district wins this year. (Hunger Games)

Because you didn't steal that timeline from somewhere else, right.

Gaggers dwell in FML? But this place is so serious compared to 9... anyways I am guilty as charged. I am sincerely sorry...

Came for the comment, stayed for the reactions...

Wow that sucks. Similar thing happened to my cousin too. She dyed it again. Hope you can dye it soon. I think you have to wait a couple of days/weeks before you dye it back? Good luck

Give your hair a break. She must've left the bleach too long. You are supposed to bleach a couple of times within the duration of two days. That's what I did with my hair. I would recommend your refund. Once your hair heals you should try it yourself. But I would recommend either dying it back to regular color once it heals or dye it some other color that won't look even worse with orange blended in

That's horrible:/ kick them in the face

Yea or just ask for a refund like an adult

If I got kicked in the face every time I screwed up at work, I'd look like a hockey player.

Always go off recommendations for that sort of thing (from someone who's had something similar done) so that you have a safer idea of how well it will turn out.

I think taking hair from dark brown to blonde is a process and should take a few sessions to properly tone it.

Really? My hair is a darker brown and it only took one round of bleach to make it a medium blonde. Maybe because That was the only time I bleached it?

you can generally only lift color 4 shades at one time. you bleach it to lift the color, then either tone or apply the desired color (ie medium brown). if you want to go lighter, you must wait and follow the same process repeating until you have reached the desired result. it is a big commitment to go from dark brown to blonde, not a one day thing. the hairstylist should have known this and explained it to OP before doing anything.

Ah sorry op, don't stress it though, your hair will grow back and some people fin gingers hot so it might work out for you
