I'm glad to say it's not the case :) I'm absolutely thrilled with the colour C10030. It's a cool, light blonde with a mix of a slightly darker, warmer tone through it. The girls in the salon actually prefer me in this colour to my usual c6020 (which, by the way, is also a gorgeous colour)
I've popped a few pictures below for you all to take a look at. I've not even had it cut yet! It's really wearable right out of the box though after just a little styling :)
Xmas love and hugs!
