Maybe use a toner? It doesn't look that bad, I wouldn't worry to much unless the pictures lie:)

It's bad. The pics don't do it justice. And it doesn't suit my skintone at all. :/

I actually like it! Lol!

If your hair's in good condition to dye again, you could try an ash blonde over that to cancel out those orange/yellow tones. Or if you'd rather not risk the dye, I agree with Hollyfire, try a toner or shampoo with purple in it :)

Well, I don't know much about haircolor, but I would think a toner would help? Maybe redye in a few weeks?

Wella Color Charm Hair color in Nordic blonde with a very gentle 20 developer.

Please trust me I've done this a million times (okay 12, really I have)

It wont lighten to the level you see in the pic unless you pre bleach your hair. A Lot.

It will add ash tones to it. Enough to make it look natural.

Ok. Cause I used a 30 vol. developer and a couple garnier fructisse butternut color tubes (but not their 20 vol. developer). I'm not sure I want to go to church tomorrow morning. *hides under paperbag*

Put a hat on :) lol

The lower the vol., the less chance of orangeyness, in my experience :)

Aww, its gonna be alright, do a pretty updo so no one notices? Or use a hat like said above, I'm sure if you don't say anything, no one will notice (heck, peopel don't notice when I purposly dye my hair!) people are ignorant like that.

As said before, I'd just use an ash blonde dye over the top, that will cancel out those brassy tones and compliment your skin tone better.
I am currently trying to get my hair back to it's natural ashy blonde from black and from colour strippers my hair is getting redder and orangier every day, I'm confident that an ashy colour dye will cancel it out though, always has before when I was quite a pale blonde!

Well, to tell you the truth, it's not orange by a long shot! Maybe it's not what you wanted, but it does not look that bad; I second the toner.

You know, outside this looks much better.

My aunt talked me out of doing anything else to it for now.

The problem is that you didn't lift enough to get to a blonde shade. I would suggest if you still want blonde you wait a week and you will need to lighten your hair again. Once you get it light enough, you can use a toner.

The photo of you outside looks really pretty I think.

I just did the same thing! I used L'oreal, "Golden Dark Blonde" and it came out all orangey. The next day I did L'oreal "Light Brown"(natural) over it. It seems to look decent now. Now I am DONE coloring my hair! I'm getting inspiration from the thread about growing out bleach and dye.

Outside, it looks like you have a nice strawberry blonde (on my monitor, anyway).

I'm guessing the artificial light wasn't doing you justice. Personally, I think it looks good. But we are our own worst critics...

It's the exact same color as the girl in your signature!
