So i just went and looked at a friends hair (dreaded box dye) her daughter did it last night after id cut it.
Gets a message to please come fix my hair.
An ash has been used so its got a greyish blue tinge through the fringe and the root is warm.
I only qualified in Oct and have not really done any colour correction, She doesnt have time for skin tests and strand tests as she has her sons wedding Saturday.
I have said no and that she should go to a hairstylist with more experience than me.
I know ive done the right thing but ....I feel really awful and this is the 2nd client ive refused to colour correct in the past couple of weeks now i feel like im not a proper hairdresser :sad:
Your doing what is right though hun, your not taking the chances of a reaction and your not taking the chance of making it worse without the experience. Xoxo
You defanitly did the right thing. Color correction is a proccess and a diffacult, one sometimes.
I remeber a girl came to see me who had been to a
In out nail bar and she was complaining about her nails hurting so I said id take a look. The tips had been sized wrong so were pinching she had rings of fire everywhere and cut up cuticals. I started the removal and they were so tender. I noticed a very clumpy bumpy nails so I started filing it. She kep wincing so I was so careful. Then I saw it! They had drilled into the nail plate exposed the tissue under it ekkkkkkk and slopped gel over itand cured it to hide it! I stopped right then in there. I went to 5 months of nail school and nothing prepared me for that.
You did the right thing! Xo

But in my opinion you are a proper hair stylist. One that is caring, considerate and conscientious. Not some fly by night have a go halfwit. You have done exactly the right thing and should be pretty proud of yourself. :hug:

Think of it this way hun do you want to feel awful you can't help (even though there is nothing wrong in what you've done) or do you want to feel awful that you wrecked her hair. Think about it lovely i know what i'd rather feel.
Youve recently qualified lovey don't be so hard on yourself, we all start somewhere, we don't know everything straight off and part of your educational 'journey' for want of a better word is being able to identify what areas you need to improve in and continue to learn, and on the flip side of that knowing when you have to be honest with yourself and your clients about what you can or cant do at that point in your learning and training.
Don't sweat it honey you did absolutely the right thing! X x x
