    exactly! Why is she getting me in every 4-5 weeks still like when I was getting it blonded/bleached? Still charging the sane for a freehand balayage that I was charged for a bleach, tone and treatment before?!

    She doesn't even shampoo twice anymore, only once, very quick and no massage!

    No massage?!!!!!! That's the best bit of going to the hairdresser.

    Yeah that's really dodgy I know you said she's nice but I'd probably be looking elsewhere. Or maybe say to her you've seen that freehand balayage is much cheaper elsewhere so you're going to have to change due to costs. Maybe it'll get her to lower her prices and insisting it's every 12ish weeks or else you can't keep up.

    Nope. I get my hair done every 4-6 weeks and love my hairdresser. I am very picky and only trust people who have a very good reputation.

    It can be hard to 'break up' with your hairdresser if you've been seeing them for a long time, but you don't owe her your business if she isn't doing what you want. Sounds likes she's gotten too comfortable with you and has let her standards drop.

    I read the OP when it was first written and I was sitting at the hair dresser when I read it. I told her to do whatever, I wanted a change. She gave me a freakin mullet man!!!! So as you can imagine, no, I was not happy hahaha. I just said no to her "no. Get rid of the mullet" she dyed my hair and cut more off. I like it but I HATE the blow dry hahaha it looked lovely once done but I got home and styled it differently and it's so much better now. My bank balance is not so happy....

    See, as someone that gets bleached myself, I would get it too if that's how you are getting your hair done. I'm lucky as I said, my hair grows slow so it doesn't get bad until 8-9 weeks in but bc it's so blonde the regrowth is really visible. For a normal hair growth 4-6 weeks for blonde is fairly normal. But not balayage.

    If you say you normal colour is very close anyway there is no need for every 4 weeks.

    I'm still shocked she texts you to remind you about your appointments 0_o
