You should return to the salon! You did not receive the color you wanted and the hair stylist apparently did something wrong? The salon is responsible to provide the service you paid for so return, explain the problem and the salon should correct the problem for your hair.

I went to stylist & wanted medium blonde but got very pale blond. I look washed out. Went back & she put another more golden toner on it. Still looks awful. Can I color myself & when?

I think what you have is ash blonde. I color my hair myself and right after I color it, it also looks grey. Clairol Nice'n Easy ash blonde. After about 5 washings, it lightens up considerably. Wash it every day for a week before you take drastic measures.


If you still don't like it, return to the salon. Don't try coloring it yourself since you don't know what the salon used and applying another color might damage your hair..

I agree with DCA. There may have been some misunderstanding between you and the hairdresser as to the color you wanted. If your hair appears grey, a drab color may have been applied to your hair. If you wanted a dark gold, neutral or reddish blond, the hairdresser should be aware of this before beginning the procedure.

I do not recommend you coloring your hair at home. The product you would purchase would probably be for virgin hair. Yours is no longer virgin, it has been treated.


If the product was applied to virgin hair, you might get a color close to the color shown on the box. But, you, would get a color unlike the one shown on the box because you would be adding the color in the bottle to the grey color already in your hair. Adding gold or warm color to drab color would more than likely result in a strange shade of green. The hairdresser may need to remove the first color before applying another.
