she needs to do your base darker (backcomb at your roots to make it more blended) and then balayage on(no foils) in a V shape throughout your hair. Bleach should not be painted on in stripes.. when I get mine balayaged my entire head is so backcombed and fluffed up I look insane lol
Where do you live?? You may have better luck finding a good stylist in a big city! Also don’t be afraid to invest a little more $ in your hair.. I get mine done 1 time a year and it grows out well so the $200 I pay goes far!

Stylist here…. Going lighter needs to be a process! if your stylist is a good stylist she will take you light over time. baylage does mean to Paint on however there are many times that even I will sandwich with foils. Or with plastic. There are so many and I mean so many techniques! In the pics you have, the roots are a lot darker which gives a higher contrast with the blonde. I have done the same technique with clients to achelive the look you are asking for. If you have been with your stylist for a while I would trust her! clients sometimes bring in a picture and don’t understand that you can never fully duplicate a look from a picture. You have different hair, texture etc. you’re hair may be more resistant to lifting etc. these are things a good stylist has to all take into mind! To protect the integrity of your hair. When I have a bride that wants to go for a major change I recommend a yer out to start if possible! If not at least 6-8 months! Best of luck!

bklyn18: PilotsLocal: thanks! I haven’t been with this one long. I did meet with some else today and it seemed promising so we’ll see. I def understand the blonde is a process but I feel like it just looks like regular highlights and that the bottom should be different even if not the best tone! Hopefully I have better luck!

I just had my fourth session of balayage and my stylist used some foils, but only towards the top (the bits that were not yet blonde from previous sessions). I have really dark hair that my stylist said takes ages to lighten (turns reddish brown rather than lifting to the colour) so it’s been a long process getting to the colour I want and avoiding the brassy look. I have inspo pics but always try to keep in mind that my hair is different to the girls in the pics so the result will never be identical. Best of luck with this stylist!

misskate18: thanks! I am hopeful this new one will get it someone close to the picture. I just feel like this last one forgot what I wanted or something!!! maybe my expectations were too high 🙂 but I did hear from some others but the one I just had always did the same thing so might well move on!
