Highlights give you the ability to make a style statement and keep your hair looking fresh and vibrant. From a simple halo of highlights around your face to a full head of balayage blonde highlights, the possibilities are endless. Whether you want to keep your look subtle and natural or you’re in the mood to make a bolder statement, our expert colorists will help you find the perfect shade for you.
The main thing to remember is that highlights are a lighter shade or colors than your base color. They add contrast and dimension to your hair while framing your face and bringing out your skin tone. Highlights can also enhance your eye color and add a healthy glow to your complexion.
There are many different methods for applying highlights including foils, balayage and color melting. Foil highlights utilize aluminum foil to help saturate specific strands of your hair and create a gradual ombre effect. This technique is best for those with a thicker head of hair.
Balayage is a more freehand method of coloring your hair in which the colorist paints individual strands of your hair lighter than your base color and leaves a more natural-looking, sun-kissed effect. This method works well on tousled layers, bobs and shoulder-length hair.
Streaks are a popular way to add highlights by putting light blonde pieces amongst your darker base color. This type of highlight is more noticeable and requires more frequent touch-ups as it’s a more structured process than balayage. Highlights
