Hi everyone! So I made the mistake of trying blonde balayage so soon to the big day. Long story short, I do not like it. The hair stylist did a lovely job, and the colour is quite lovely. But it’s just not “me”. I like my hair dark, and one solid colour. I’m Armenian, and I have dark features. I regret doing it, and I want to get her to dye over it and go back dark. But the only thing holding me back is I spent so much money... should I bite the bullet and just go back to my beautiful dark hair colour? It’ll cost me more. Or should I just deal with what I have? Any advice would be appreciated. I’m quite sad
Totally agree with the ladies. Go back to what you love so you can be happy with your wedding photos.
I LOVE to change my hair and try new things but I knew I would stick to my favorite hair style and color before my wedding. When I postponed my wedding to next year, I colored my hair purple. LOL. Now I have a little longer to try new things before going back to my fav.

It’s nice to hear that I am not alone! I guess we all make mistakes. My stylist told me because it’s a new colour it’s a separate service... they are going to try to work out a small discount for me. Anything helps.
This happened to me once. I wanted to go darker and my stylist used a colour that pulled very red on me and just looked bland. I was really unhappy with it and called a few days later to make an appointment to lighten up the colour. She ended up fitting me in on short notice and just charged me for the product - I would have been willing to pay full price to fix my hair but I really appreciated the discount.
Can you talk to your hair stylist about changing it back? She may be willing to fix your hair for a reduced price since you aren't happy with the original colour. If you're a regular customer she's going to want to keep you happy. Even if she won't do that, I think you'll be happier in the end if you go back to your dark colour.

Awe that's hard. I am assuming with the highlights now when you go dark it will be different dimensions. So I think it would "add dimension" if no you did that now. And hair can be like that. I've had hair cuts and colours I've regretted and had to go back and change! It happens ! For your wedding though make sure your happy with it!
I would definitely go back if you don't like it. You don't want to have regrets on your wedding day or in pictures. My hair dresser told me no trying anything new close to the wedding for that reason lol. I'm very hair picky. So we are sticking with my normal until the wedding.
