Have both the bleach and the highlift gone orange or just the highlift?
did you tone it afterwards?

Sorry this is going off the subject lol i did a colour correction a while ago, some one had used a hi lift on a base 4 (god knows why) then i had to try to fix it, i tried to tone it and didnt make the slightest difference, had to bleach and tone in the end x

thats because the highlift didnt lift enough as it was used on a lower base. if you had toned with a shade darker then it would have worked, but darkened at the same time.

I would probably say bleach over the highlift with 3% to be honest

yep knock the highlift on the head, the hair has far too much red in it for the highlift to work, go over with bleach and 3% as perry says, and stick to bleach in future on her hair! x

The high lift would only have lifted to an 8/9 so a 9 wouldn't help but it would be impractical to pick out the high lift and tone anyway, bleach them and comb through a nice natural toner to give the multi tonal effect she is after
