Yes definitely go back and show them the picture of the underneath. You're not happy and you shouldn't have to live with it.

They've just painted the strips too thick, take a pic from google that you like with you and ask them to re do it propperly, I think u need a darker top colour too imo

I think you need to ask to speak to the manager. The stylist doing that colour obviously doesn't know what they are doing. It's not necessarily their fault though, but hopefully someone who knows what they are doing can fix it for you x

Judging by your pics, the stylist doesn't have a clue how to do Balayage.

It's tricky when you have to pay other hairdressers to do your hair. After a particularly disastrous cut, I always ask lots of questions before I let them start so I can be reasonably confident they know what they're doing.

In your shoes, I'd be asking exactly how they plan to rectify it before I let them loose for a second time.

------------
A few years ago, I worked in a salon where a rather over confident but still inexperienced stylist told a client 'yes, I can do an Ombre, no problem'. He'd never done it before and thought he could wing it.

I knew it was going to end in tears when he was so disorganised just setting up his trolley so I offered to assist but no, he knows what he's doing. I watched him from across the salon forget the order he was painting on several sections and the client ended up instead of a nice fade from dark to light, she had patches of pale blonde near her roots and dark tips. :eek:
I left the salon not long after that.

They went through with a darker shade at the top wich got rid of the spotty/patchy bits but my blonde has gone really ashy and looks green next to my skin, im now having to wear it up and keep washing it 😁 im gutted to be honest as it takes months for me to get time to have my hair done

Could you bleach shampoo the ends? Just to take the tinge off?
