Hehe. In 1993 I dyed my hair myself to try to save money (young, living on my own and broke!). It ended up costing me an arm and a leg to fix. I was going for a nice auburn shadeand ended up with "Bozo the Clown" orange. The perm I had didn't take away from that image, either. YIKES!! Cost me nearly $100 to get it fixed and when it was done it was maroon. Very maroon. As a matter of fact I had a special occasion a few days later and I had gotten a maroon dress and nailpolish to wear. Matched perfectly. Sigh. Good news, though, in a few weeks it had faded to a gorgeous color that was perfect on me. I also highlighted my brother's hair one night right before we were supposed to leave on a trip. Came out awesome. Unfortunately he then insisted that he wanted it buzzed. I tried to talk him out of it to no avail. Needless to say we ended up making a midinght run to WalMart to get brown dye to cover his leopard spots. It was BAD. He avoided the pool on our entire trip because he was so afraid it would bleach his spots back out. Ahhhhh, hair dying disasters. They're so funny. Now. Yeeeeeeeeears later!
