I have waited a day or two before judging the outcome of my hair color.
My request was for hair to be lightened on top and blended in. The request was accommodated via stripey highlights that were done on a center part - my hair does not part down the middle. So, with my natural parting, I now have gauche-looking light stripes with dark roots. With all the dark retouching carried out, there is a swatch of grey new growth that was never touched.
I am understanding that this is a place of education, however the educator only stopped by for the initial consult and final checkout - perhaps they would have caught some of the retouch root bleeds or missed areas?
