I dye my hair red and have never bleached it and don't plan to either. I am aware that my color washes out faster than any other color and that I'll never be able to get the actual red tone that I want without bleaching it. With that being said, I made an appointment and didn't request a stylist, just made a general appointment. When I got there I was told Nicole would be dying my hair. I showed her a picture of what I was going for and she was honest and said I would never get that if I didn't bleach my hair. Of course I said no, so she helped me pick out the color that was closest to what I wanted. She went on to mix the dye and then the process began. She asked me if I wanted a cut and I only asked for the ends because I'm trying to let my hair grow. She was totally careful with how much she cut off and she had me stand up while she cut. That was a complete first for me. We finished up and OMG I LOVED my hair. It was exactly what I wanted. I am so happy with my results. I booked my next appointment right then and there because I know I wanna come back. I have found my new salon.
