Thread: Boss says my hair color has gotta go.

  1. #1

    Default Boss says my hair color has gotta go.

    I normally dye my hair with manic panic pillarbox red, and some jazzing cherry cola, diluted and mixed with cheap condish.

    I decided to try a new color, diluted on my length, full strength on my roots, with face framing streaks. Its a special fx vampire red semi perm.This is a pink based red, and gave me raspberry/beet juice colored hair. I like it! My lengths are more subtle. but I have some streaks of rasberry beet juice red thru the lengths.

    My boss saw it pulled into a bun, and she says, "whoa, too too red. This is borderline unnatural color, which is against resturaunt policy". So she asked me, (nicely) to have it gone by my next shift, (next friday). how do I keep my red, while ousting my pinkish red? Can this be done gently?

    How about wearing a bandanna or a scarf until you can tone it down slowly?

    I am afraid that sort of head covering is against the dress code. I wear a tee shirt, belt, jeans, non skid kitchen shoes, and a company visor. Oh, and a matching scrunchie.

    We used to have little snoods that fit over a bun. Would that cover the part that was too unnatural looking for the boss?

    ok, can you gel the hell outta the bangs and comb them back/up under the visor? Or use some temp wash out dye for the bangs only?

    infra red is less pink and more orange, you could mix that with some ''cobra'' from manic panic as well, its light brown

    before dyeing again you could use a treatment that is good to fade color :
    cheap conditionner ( vo5, suave )
    honey
    lemon juice
    apply that on dry hair and leave it wrapped for an hour

    You could try 1) doing a deep oiling with coconut oil, 2) removing the oil, 3) clarifying, (all these to fade the dye) then 4) re-dyeing with an orange-based red to even it out and make it look more auburn.

    Can I have waist length hair for Christmas?
