First, I would like to say that I've always been pleased with my hair. But that being said, it seems like every time I go, it's sticker shock, j. I get my hair highlighted, roots and cut. (No flat iron, that's extra), however, my cost for those three is usually 110-130 whether I get a gloss or not. When I went in this week my stylist asked if I'd rather her paint it instead of use the foil. I was like "sure." My mistake was not to ask her how much cost, as I assumed (my fault) it was a higher cost. And she took no initiaitve to inform me (maybe she thinks I'm wealthy). But that being said when I walked up to the desk it was 185.00!!! Woah, is there a warranty that comes with that?! Just make sure you always ask when a suggestion is made "is there a extra COST?" --- Personally, that price was painful for me. Good luck!!!
