Would this hair colour be weird?

I have naturally brown, ashy hair - very flat and dull and I hate it. I've beenhaving caramel-blonde highlights put in but can't afford the upkeep anymore (my roots show really badly so need doing quite often). I mentioned this it my hairdresser and she said that what they've been doing a lot of lately, for people who can't afford regular root-maintenance, is to have the highlights underneath and a natural colour on top. That way, the regrowth won't show nearly as badly, because all the blond is underneath. Because my hairstyle is a shortish, choppy one, like this she says the highlights will show because of all the flicks I have.

I'm sure she knows what she's talking about but I'm just not sure I can picture it... what do we think?

Looks nice to me.Depends on whether it suits you and which is upto you, if you can carry it off.So, go ahead!

That pic is just to illustrate the cut though, not the colour. Brown on top ith bits of blond poking through just sounds vaguely like I might look like a leopard....
