Please could I ask your advice regarding my hair?

I had my hair done yesterday, my stylist is on mat leave so her junior did it. When she took the foils off I had brassy roots at the top, so she put a toner on. This has left me with brassy roots going into a more ash tone on the ends.
I have told her I'm not happy, and she's offered to do some highlights to cover it. I'm not convinced it will fix things.
If there are any hair experts amongst us, please could you advise me on the best course of action. Thank you.

The yellowy patches at the top @Rubyslippers7780

It isn't great to be honest, looks like you still have darker roots and the colour is uneven at the top. Can you go back and get the manager to redo it? Juniors all have to learn and make mistakes but I wouldn't have the junior put more foils in this time.

I can see what you mean. I'm no hairdresser but it looks like it's just not lifted enough. I'd see if the manager can 're do it if you're usually happy with that salon.

I think your best course of action is to find another (more-experienced) colourist whilst your usual stylist is on mat leave. Whilst highlights will help break up the yellowy/brassy block of colour, they won't completely hide it. Is there a more experienced stylist/style director at the salon who can take over? If not, I would look elsewhere.

Not an expert, the bottom of hair looks ok the top part not so good.

I like the overall colour, it just looks like she hasn't gone right to the roots (or blended it) near the top. There's a darker patch to the left of your crown. The rest of it looks lovely!

You've really pretty hair but agree the colour at the top isn't right, it is quite brassy. I think I'd go someplace else to get it fixed.

KellyMarieTunstall2 Fri 22-Sep-17 17:53:54

I went back today for them to fix it. What do you think?

That's much nicet. Phew - nothing worse than paying out gor hair anf then not liking it.

It's much better and brighter and the yellow is gone. Only a minor problem now with the roots not matching. Hopefully your main colourist is back soon? I would leave it for now. Don't over process by continuing to add more colour for the moment.

It looks more blended and agree the roots not matching but would leave now. I thought the caramel colours you had previously were gorgeous btw.
