I went to get highlights and my grey roots colored. I normally color my own hair, but I wanted to do something special for my birthday. She said I needed to not only get my roots colored but there was an area in the back of my hair that needed to blend in.
Instead of getting highlights she made the highlight color the same as my normal hair color and she made my roots and the area in the back of my hair almost black in color instead of a chestnut brown. I now have no highlights and when I put my hair up, I look like my hair is almost black. If someone looks at the back of my hair when it is down, the top section (that she didn't color) is brown and the bottom section is now black. Instead of blending my color I now have 2 distinct colors.
