How to get this hair colour?
I dyed my hair with L'oreal Paris: Feria Violet Soft Black and it turned out more red than purple. I was wondering how I could make it more like that without dying it again?

Can any expert/experienced hair dying soompiers help me out with this?
My hair is this colour at the moment, maybe faded a little bit...
I have a half a bottle of 20 V 6% pyroxide left, meaning I got around 10V ~3% left? And a random red hair dye tube that a friend got for me from HK.
Anddd this is the current box I normally use from Schwarzkopf, Intensive Red.
My question is, what do I have to do to achieve the colour below? Maybe a tiny bit darker than that. Should I mix the leftover I had from my last hair dye (the pyroxide and maybe even the leftover hair dye) with my current Schwarzkopft box dye? How about should I go doing that? I could go to the hair dresser but I kinda want to try using box dye first to dye it gradually and see how it goes. I often dye my hair the same colour every 2-3 months, never dye my hair any colour except red...
Or should I go for a blonde/orangeish hair like Hyori Lee ;__; I'm really not sure which to pick!

For those who want an ombre dyed style hair, I found a great tutorial: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kuRzz4orjYM&feature=related
It's for black/dark brown virgin hair. I just thought I'd post this because I'm searching on how to fix my stupid hair, since yesterday, I went to the salon to try and get this ombre dyed hair style (leave it to the professionals, right?)... BIG MISTAKE, they f*cked me!!
Now I'm stuck with ugly bright random highlights half way up my hair in RANDOM PLACES and even at my ROOTS!! I LOOK LIKE A SKUNK!!! -_____-
$70 bucks for pros who half-Richard Simmons the job. I want to go back and make them fix it, but knowing them, they'd mess it up even more, not worth damaging my hair even further...

Hi guys! I'm back again, with pictures of my previous dilemma. xD So you'll see what stage I'm at and what I went through this weekend to get it like this. Then what I plan to do with it after a couple of weeks (since I don't want to completely kill off my hair and turn it into a bird's nest LOL).
1. Soooo, here's my black virgin hair. I've been growing it out for about a year now. You won't get to see the back, just the color. It's pretty long in the back.
2. I was waiting for the perfect moment to color my hair and I originally wanted an "ombre" look. The picture I showed my stylist were more like highlights, but nevertheless, it still had the "ombre" effect at the ends of her hair. I explained to him clearly what I wanted, and well, he half-assed my hair, and the colors were far from the ones in the pic, more like clownish blonde, plus they were scattered in random spots and blotchy, some at my roots, some at my ends. It had no fade-out effect, just really blotchy and ugly. I had to go home and dye it a darker shade to make it less noticeable, but it still looked really bad.
Example picture I showed the stylist of what type of hair coloring I wanted:
Turned out like this, but I couldn't take a detailed pic of how blotchy it actually was (color was like really mustard clownish looking blonde):
I tried to conceal it with a darker color, which made it a little better I guess:
3. Then I went back to the salon (took a risk I guess since he was willing to fix it for free). Turned out kind of what I wanted, but I'll have to fix it and add some brown to create the correct "ombre" effect I wanted. My hair is completely fried and damaged now because he had to re-do everything. He really destroyed my hair. I could tell he was reluctant to re-do my hair too, he really managed to pull out my hair and create some new split ends... But the color is what's important I guess. x___x
Now I'm basically waiting a couple of weeks to dye the mid parts (where black fades to blonde) like a brownish auburn color. Hopefully it'll turn out something like this:
Wish me luck!!

good luck! and that stylist totally doesnt get the difference between streaks, highlights, and ombre. I found that if you don't live in a trendy city, a lot of stylist dont know jack about how to do ombre or highlights for the matter, a lot of them will put streaks (chunky strands of blonde in your hair, that dont blend in with your hair). Why boggles my mind, b/c ombre is the pretty simple to achieve. I think you're better off doing it yourself next time. Hopefully, you get the results you wanted.

ok so like a year ago, i dyed my hair black with loreal permanent black hair dye. At that time, i rly liked black hair but now i want to go lighter so yesterday i bought the L'Oreal True Brunettes in Ultra Light Ash Brown and only my roots and some parts turned out to be the color i wanted! I really like the color but i want my entire hair to be that color. is there any way i can get the black out of my hair?

You'll have to strip the dark colors out. It's harder to dye your hair a lighter color if it's been dyed black.
Here's a page on home remedies as an alternative for least damage, then there's a list of actual products you can buy if home remedies do not work.
