There have been various plateau phases in recent decades when hair dyeing was particularly popular: in the ’80s, goths wore black and metal guitarists wore platinum blonde; in the ’90s, we went to raves with neon-colored hair; and in the 2000s, everyone wanted to be like Justin Timberlake, so platinum blonde experienced a revival. (And that’s despite the fact that, at the time, Justin looked like a pot of noodles had been dumped over his head).
Then as now, however, dyeing hair also comes with certain risks. And if you think that the worst that can happen is that the color turns out differently than you wanted, you’ve definitely got it wrong….
Here are 30 people who deeply regret having dyed their hair!
