Secrets of the Red Carpet: Fixing the Hair Color Mistakes — via a SALON– NOT a DIY Situation!

Actors are forever changing hair color– it’s the nature of their job. Styles, color, texture– and they pay for it because they must take great care of their hair. However what do WE– you and I as consumers – do if someone screws up. It makes no difference if it’s from a box as a DIY or in a salon the screwed up– except one hair color treatment costs a whole lot more !!

When I went to a place I was going to re-review in West LA, things went horribly awry when someone did exactly what I told her NOT to do and the color was wrong, wrong and MORE wrong when roots grew out in 2 weeks + the color started turning orange.

This is the hair after the West LA salon — the first day. It didn’t look like that 2 weeks later! It was getting lighter & orange.

Thanks to Makin Waves Salon in Huntington Beach & COLLEEN, she figured out what was wrong– and told me all the inside stuff like where this person screwed up- and she did a terrific job fixing it.


Sometimes you can get yourself in trouble via a box of home color too– and I have done that more than once. If you don’t like it, go to a pro. While there is Color Oops– it’s NOT the same as a professional who can tell you how to condition your hair back to health.
