She's so Vain... (Well not really...but you get it..)

Ok umm...So I HAD highlights in my hair, I went to the mall on Saturday because my hair is LONG over due, well turns out all the "salons" in the mall had 2 hour waits so I went shopping... And forgot about my hair (got some good deals though)
Anyways when I got home I realized I forgot to get a hair cut/color....
Yep so I went back out, not to the mall though because as I drove I remembered where the hubby gets his hair did for CHEAP. (I am all about the cheap haircut and color...what? Its hair it grows back... nothing a box die can not fix?) So I stop and walk in and announce I need some highlights and a cut
"We are sorry lady we only do cuts, no color, no highlights"
OK I was DESPERATE and needed a cut so I obliged and figured "I can just get a box die on the way home and die it all one color and then I can get new highlights when I find the time"

So yeah got the hair trimmed, picked up a box that "look" almost the color I needed and went home to apply.. All went well, I left it on for about 10 extra minutes and followed the instructions VERY CAREFULLY, making sure to massage and separate the strands....

Turns out the front looks FABULOUS, great color, very close to my color BUT WHAT THE FUCK IS THAT? It did not die my highlights on the top... It got some of them but not all...

So with my hair up I look normal, I called the salons today because I have a HUGE interview tomorrow to tell them my woes and how I need to be fixed and the box die and blah blah...

FUCK ME!!! None of the "salons" in the shitty small town I live in "FIX COLOR" because I used a permanent box die it can not be fixed with salon color

Me "Well you could just "redo" the highlights and it will all be well"

Salon Lady "Ummm no it does not work like that, because you boxed die, any highlights we do will change only the color of some hair when we "neutralize it" the old highlights will still be there...

Me "Well I could pick the same color, or just die it black right?"

Salon Lady "No that will not work, those highlights will still show......."

AKKKK

Ok now I am in trouble.... Nothing a box die can not fix my ASS~~


***Edit****
I went in, I begged, I signed a waiver that I DID NOT CARE if my hair fell our or turned orange, green or purple because at this point it did not matter because WHATEVER happened it would have to look better than it did..., and BEGGED them to PPPUULLLEEAAASEEE fix it....... It looks FABULOUS, as long as I still have hair in the morning I am sure I will ace both my interviews (its a secret till I get it : )****

I've used a box color over highlights and the highlights keep coming back only you can't see the roots so I kinda of like it. Good luck on the interviews.

At 14, I colored my hair once and it came out orange. My mom almost died. Heart failure.

Glad yours worked out!!

Hey, answering your (sort of) question so I thought I'd do it in an old post.

If you look in my sidebar there is a section called The Fire. My backstory is there.
