Hair salon coloring question

In December my new hair colorist did a base color and 2 different foil colors which was ridiculously expensive. Since then she has been done root touchups which are far less costly. Now she wants to do a full color and foil again but I dont think I need it so soon. How often do you have the full color and foil done? Your advice is much appreciated!

8-12 weeks. By 12 weeks it looks pretty bad (gray roots), but I am pretty cheap!

I get mine done every 6-8 weeks, but I think I could probably go 10. I just tend to have a special occasion about that often, which makes me want to get it refreshed.

I am 50 with about 3/4 gray hair (if I didn't color). I got a full color done a year ago and since then only do root touch ups every 2-3 months ( I do it myself every 3 weeks so it's not shining at the roots in between salon visits) and I get highlights 2-3 times per year. I just had the touch up and highlights done in January and I asked my stylist if I needed to have a full color and she said no, just keep doing the touch ups at the root and highlights, and I agree. My hair looks really pretty.

Why would you have to do a full color again? Sounds fishy to me.

I used to go every 8 weeks but one time I needed to cancel at the last minute and she was booked for a month! So I waited another 4 weeks and it was fine.

I don't have grays yet and my colorist uses two colors in her foils, a highlight and a lowlight. The main places you can see roots are at your part and at your hairline. She somehow manages to work a pattern of color where those areas are well blended. You can kind of tell when it's time for new color but it is not super obvious. She's amazing!
