It's why you really shouldn't mess around with at-home bleaching -- getting it fixed is time-consuming and incredibly expensive vs. just getting it done correctly at the salon in the first place. I really don't think the salon was randomly ripping them off, I think she was getting several services and it was going to take a lot to fix that tragic accidental ombre. Personally, since I normally like darkening my color and my hair holds onto it well, I just do henna at home, mix together a dark auburn. With long, super thick hair, I always need double the amount of dye and it just gets to be too expensive. Probably haven't gotten to three or four bills, but I've been pretty close. I learned about in home bleaching the hard way when I was very young! Judging by the severity of that two-tone hair, a lot of correction was probably necessary. And, those were no cheap dyes that they used, either. Probably really expensive stuff with silks in it and what have you, which was gentle on those ends of hers which look fried. No doubt she couldn't find proper conditioner for bleached hair in lockup. She probably needed $350 worth of work. They had a real hair emergency on their hands! Since I have kids, I'm pretty cautious about how much I spend. There's always the obligatory brow wax. And, I love a pedicure, but if I knew it was already going to be anything close to $200, that's NOT the day to sign on for a mani/pedi and a host of other services. And, of course you've got to tip well. If I spend $140, I'm going to tip $40 if she's spent two hours with me. Too bad they couldn't bleach her teeth. 4 Link to comment
