mistake with hair

Yesterday morning I had longish brown hair and it was great.

i got it in my head i should go blond, cause I've been blond before and fancied a change since losing weight and had it cut to my shoulders.

I love the cut but the colour is a disaster, the hairdresser did it beautifully I just realise now how I suit being darker.

Anyway,how long should I reasonably wait to correct this? 6-8 weeks ?

I don't want to ruin my hair by dyeing it all the time,

Yeh I'd wait if I were you. As they tend to advise leaving it at least 6-8 weeks before you dye it again xx

Wait a good while or your hair will be munted.
You don't want that

Its not the same for everyone.
I guess if you have looked after your hair then its fine.
If you straighten/curl it to death and nuke it with heat etc then I would leave it a while.

i dont use lots of heat on my hair only 2 times a week do i straighten it and i use special heat protection from salon but i think as i paid quite a bit i will keep colour for the 6-8 week period.

There's no need to be hasty; it's not a case of life or death. I would wait a few weeks, in the meantime you may get to like it when you get used to seeing it in the mirror.

I'd go back and ask them if they can reverse it safely and satisfactorily.  There's nothing worse than hating one's hair.

I've changed me hair colour 3 times in one day.  I'm far too impatient to wait!

its not their fault the cut is great colour is nice, i just dont like it compared to my dark hair. I've washed it now and getting used to it, just need to change my makeup, using a nice blue eye shadow suits the blond.... my usual pale lips/dark eyes makes me look washed out with this blond hair.

Likewise. I've spend a whole day doing nothing but strip one colour, bleach, dye and repeat just because I didn't like it. Lol. (went from purple, red, blonde, black and back to red) All I can say is to invest in an intensive conditioner and your hair should be fine
