Ive been following your thread on trying to achieve the desired Ombre- balyage look, as so have i!
I have dark brown hair too and hate highlights as they are always too severe and look too pale against my hair.
So when i was in a hairdressers recently I noticed that the receptionist had this lighter at the ends look! fab I thought! so I booked my next appointment there and then to get it done!
that was Sat
I dont know how this got lost in translation as I asked the colourist I would Like the same as the girl working on the desk.....????!
I ended up with darker hair. no mess!DARKER! with horrible whitish. yes you got it HIGHLIGHTS!!! grr... Ive been to this "chain" of hairdressers before and it is the last time ill go back. ever! Im not one to dye my hair often. but Ive had two bad experiences now with them and Im so not impressed.
having to fork out money for what was far from what I wanted.

trying to be upbeat and I am ringing another hairdressers 2m to ask if they can do it. I have photos to show them and Im going to get them to be honest. can you do this or not
