Hairdresser Turned Hair Rose-gold Instead of Blonde?I went in to have my roots touched up blonde. Roots are blonde. Much of the rest of my hair is not! It turned rose-gold. She said it is impossible to remove. I have to wait until it grows out. So she added highlights! I'm very unhappy!


Two decorative lamps.

Value of Bon Art Lamps?I bought these two lamps at a garage sale about 20 years ago. I found some on eBay and Poshmark and other sites with the same logo selling for up to $250 to over $1000. Any help is appreciated to figure out their value. I have shades, but they look like they have been spray painted. I need to get rid of them.
