Henna over blond highlights

I will be doing henna on a friend over brown hair that has blond highlights in it (they have been there for awhile and are growing out).  What will it end up looking like?  Auburn with red highlights?

Yes ... reddish brown with orangey red highlights. Should be pretty! 

It can be hard to get highlighted (bleached) hair to darken past orange with henna. It's harder to get enough lawsone to stay in the hair to make a deep red or auburn.  Bleached hair behaves differently than naturally light (blonde or white) hair.
