The student and I had discussed coloring my hair then highlighting, making my base a darker color. The instructor had the student just do my roots then highlight. My hair was already blonde and the highlights barely show. I realize that the instructor was teaching the coloring technique to lift my natural color of my roots to match my existing color, but that was not the outcome that was originally decided.
The cut, highlight and color were all done perfectly and I am happy with the results. I just wish the instructor had listened to the student as I did not understand when they were speaking in color jargon.
