I don’t see any problem with highlighting your hair, not sure why she would tell you it can’t be done.  You could start with just highlighting your natural hair and not run the lightener over the previously highlighted hair (it’s not recommended to overlap the color through your ends anyways). Once your highlighted roots have lifted to a level matching your ends, a color gloss could be applied to blend the new highlights/tone your ends.

Have you considered low lights as well? I would do the majority of the foils blonde but it wouldn’t be a bad idea to incorporate some of your natural through your old highlighted ends. It would blend your color better and the line of demarcation would not be so heavy.

It may take a couple of times to get your natural blended with your ends. With foiling, we weave out pieces of hair and leave some hair out between the foils. It will be definetely be lighter the first time, but depending on how solid you want your highlights, it may not be acheived in just one service (but not too soon after your first service because you may have color overlapping issues if your roots have not grown out enough).

I would recommend scheduling a consultation at a couple of salons. That way you can find a colorist who listens and is happy to work with you to give you the color you want. It should be easy though, you’re not really asking for anything too difficult/color correction etc.

should be fine it can be done. occasionally with this much re growth i have had more problem getting the line to blend but using 2-3 shades of colour or 1 bleach 1 colour. occasionaly my client have had the slightest faint line after bleach highlights with alot of regrowth but once the toner has gone on and they have sat out side a bit. its blended fine.x
