Success! It’s supposed to be spiky in the back but the stylist insisted on straightening it. I think she misunderstood me, which is easy to do. I have a couple different length ponytails(my hair was layered and really thick) and most of them are 8-9 inches that I’m going to donate. I had to go brown and black because the pink wouldn’t bleach out, and it’s still red in places in the back. Just my bangs are the really dark colors.
