I am interested to see what happens.  Keep us posted!  I would think she would’ve charged you for either the balayage or color, not both.  And as she told you it would be $85, that’s what it should be.  Its possible the lady who rang you up made an error.

That’s what my hair receipt break down is like. Balyage -the charge for the technique/work used. The colour – the product used , haircut- cutting the hair and charges for extra product used. Doesn’t look like an error to me.

westybound :  Yeah I don’t think she gave you what you asked for. And I do think she used the traditional highlight method and not the balayage (even with foil) technique. It does not look like she painted the highlights in the correct V pattern or placed them correctly for what your intended result was.

westybound :  That looks nothing like the picture you wanted. She definitely gave you highlights. Was she a referral or did she have good reviews? The dark and light hair should blend together.

any good salon owner would give you at least a partial refund in this situation.  Curious to see what they do.

Yeah that doesn’t look right at all, although the color she achieved is pretty.

As a blonde, when I get baby balayage, I also pay for lowlights and a toner. Doesn’t look applicable with your color but you never know.

westybound :  if what you wanted isn’t what you got.. id absolutely go back and get it fixed. Talk to the manager and don’t leave until you’re satisfied. I recently went to a high end salon and a level 4 (which Is the highest most experienced) stylist was who I requested. I wanted my ombre brought up on my head. I had it done last November and it was significantly grown out. She put half a head worth of stripey highlights in my hair all the way to my scalp. I went back 3 days later and had her fix it. For $250 I wasn’t leaving until she did what I asked in the first place.

westybound :  That stretchy feeling is when your hair has been over-processed with bleach. If she won’t return your call I would dispute the charges with your bank.
