I think I may have reached a new point in my personal development today.
I have always had a hard time speaking up about being dissatisfied with a product/service. I never want to inconvenience anyone and feel bad complaining. Well today I went back to my hairdresser as I wasn't really happy with how some of my highlights turned out. Last time she did them I got this beautiful sun kissed section right at the front which I absolutely loved. Well this time, it turned out brassy and rather orange, I'm sure most people wouldn't even notice but every time I look in the mirror its all I can see. Antonella was great, she went right to work on it. We re-highlighted and dried it but still I saw the brass. So again she applied some toner kind of stuff to counter act the brassy look but still it persisted. Next we tried a special blue shampoo. She told me to take a look and see what I thought after the third try. It's certainly better but I still think it looks brassy but there isn't much more we can do at this point without completely frying my hair. Its weird how I feel bad about Antonella not being able to fix my hair. She gave me a bottle of this special blue shampoo ($22) to use and I felt really guilty about taking it. She's also offered to do my next set of highlights for free which my gut reaction was to not accept but the more I think about it, it is my hair and I have to live with it everyday now.
Add this to my car negotiations (I'm not paying a penny over $$$ and I'm not leaving with out my free DVD player) and I'd have to say I am becoming one strong gal.
