I love my hairdresser but I have a few issues.....
First, i hate my hair for the first week or so after I leave, BUT I love it once it 'settles' (the colour) iykwim? And everyone always says my hair looks fab.
I stopped having it blonded a month ago as I was reacting to the bleach plus it went way too blonde in the end. So she did a balayage, but only used a semi-perm colour so I'd have to go back in 4 weeks. It faded but looked awesome! Still, she got me in so I said can she keep the same tone/colour and she said yes for sure as she agreed it looked great a bit lighter.
She he did it really dark! So now I have a full-on dark brown balayage - hate it, now have to wait for it to fade again..... She booked me in for 4 weeks again though and always charges me the same amount $150.
Im really not sure about (and I really can't afford to) having to get my hair done every 4-5 weeks!! She always texts me to remind me about my appointments and I usually say 'actually it's looking good I might stretch it out a couple more weeks' and she talks me into keeping the originally booked week (she's going away for a month etc etc).
I do understand they work as a business (she's self-employed but works for a salon if that makes sense - doesn't use eft either), but I thought the whole idea of balayage meant less frequent visits (every 2-3 months?)
she he is a lovely girl and I've been going to her for 3 years.
Is it normal to not like your hair for 1-2 weeks after having it done and to have to have it done that often??
