Bleached and used toner and I have very yellow hair still!!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi
I have a short pixie cut and I went to Ricky's because I wanted to bleach out a color job from a photo shoot I did recently. The girl told me what toner to use and gave me the bleach and developer. She told me to only leave the bleach on for 20 minutes since I have short hair and it was colored relatively recently. I followed all of the directions carefully and my hair was definitely uneven after the bleaching. I still toned and the color is more consistent now. However, it's still really yellow and brassy. I don't know if I should go back and get another toner or get lowlights or what?! Also, I applied the bleach correctly with foils and everything but the roots were still lighter than the ends. Is that because my hair is so short?

What was your starting colour?

IMO, go to a salon and get a professional to determine what needs doing.

Originally, before the shoot, my hair was a light brown.  Then, they stripped and dyed it many shades of red, orange, and blonde (it was a shoot where they did my hair like a faux-hawk style and it was supposed to look sun-like).  The stylist at Ricky's said the only thing I could do was bleach and tone to get it to be a normal color and she suggested going ahead with the Wella gold blonde toner.  I fear that I used a toner that was too gold.  I've read on other threads that I could get an ash-blonde semi-permanent and then a wash in/wash out toner with a purple/blue base and it would tone down the yellow, but I don't know if that only works for natural blondes...

I'm going to stick with my original advice here. *nods*

I would go get a box of ash blonde and use purple shampoo. I have natural black hair and I bleach and dye my hair blonde all the time. Asian hair tends to get very brassy and yellow as well. Read my blog post on when I dyed my hair :)

I use AG silvering shampoo from Chatters. Hope that helps.
