Have you ever gone to the salon and had a dye job go terribly wrong? Or had an at-home hair color treatment turn tragic? After spending loads of time and money to achieve head-turning hair color, you can't help but feel defeated. But we're here to remind you that there's always a solution.

In the video above, celebrity colorist Beth Minardi shares her tips on how to fix a bad dye job. Having created beautiful blonde looks for actresses like Uma Thurman and Katrina Bowden, she knows a thing or two about bringing out your best hair ever.

If your hair color turned out too dark, Minardi recommends waiting at least 24 hours before sudsing up with your regular shampoo and a teaspoon of baking soda. Sit with this solution on for 15 minutes, then wash out. To repair hair that's too light, she suggests painting individual strands in shades of caramel, butterscotch or suede instead of dumping one color on top of your entire head. Concealing grey hair without altering your overall natural color can be made easy with a cream, demi-permanent hair color. However, if all else fails, return to your colorist ASAP!
