Going back about my highlights....

Would you?
I had them done about 6 weeks ago, just the T section which is the norm for me, about once or twice a year (it's very subtle, two colours very fine.) I wanted the blonde /grey toning down (lightened by the sun.)

In the salon lighting (it was dark outside when I was finished) I was pleased but as the weeks have gone by I feel she chose too much of the lighter shade and not enough of the darker one, so I've been left with more grey/ very light blonde than I want.

I've gone for years and she's lovely but it did cost me £125 inc blow dry but not cut.

Have I left it too long now to go back? (I fear I have but want opinions.) I think it needs another half a dozen foils of the darker shade.

Yes, I think 6 weeks is too long.

6 weeks ago? Yes that's too long, I think you risk looking like you're trying to pull a fast one. I think you'll have to pay for more foils.

Yes way too long, sorry.
