Fuji Slide Film Vs Kodak Slide Film-Greenish Tones

I have recently just started using Fuji Provia 100 for cross processing, after having cross processed 3 films at a lab I got a result of 3 different looking films.

1- Greenish with yellowish skintones

2- Yellow greenish

3- exclusively blue

I asked one of the staff at the lab whether shooting in different lighting made any difference on the outcome of the tones and he replied NO (also adding that Fuji may be a good film but Kodak slide film is the best kind to use from crossprocessing keeping in mind it is fashion/portrait photography).

I am very confused about the outcome of tones and would appreciate an explanation of why those tones did appear. The blue toned result was shot in a halogen lit room and the greenish results were shot with regular indoor lightbulbs.

Would I get a better result scanning the prints and colour correcting on photoshop or should I crossprocess them myself by hand instead of using a 3hour lab service?

Many thanks

  per, different films react to crossprocessing with different color casts.
