Highlights are sections or strands of hair that are colored a few shades lighter than your base color. The main purpose of adding highlights to your hair is to brighten up the overall color of your hair and add softness and dimension to it. The shade of your highlights is determined based on the base/natural color of your hair and your complexion. No matter what the base color of your hair, you should never go more than 3 shades lighter than it. For example, if you have jet black hair, your highlights should be a shade of dark brown, brunettes should go for copper or caramel hues, and blondes should opt for a lighter shade of blonde. Go lighter than 3 shades and you run the risk of looking like a skunk. Or a zebra!
A full highlight involves highlighting hair in every section of your head from the nape of your neck to the hairline in your fringe and everywhere in between. Full highlights can be very heavy in nature allowing for a natural brunette to become a beach blonde, or they can be very designed to only slightly lighten all of your hair. Many women that love the look of a full highlight will opt to alternate between full and partial highlight appointments , as the highlights placed in the back of the head don't show the same growth as the highlights on the top of the head.
Partial highlighting is literally a highlight service that applies highlights to only part of your head. Highlights are placed, typically, in only the mohawk section of your head, although some stylists consider a partial highlight to be the top half, or the top and side sections of your head.
Face-framing highlights is a popular technique that concentrates the foil placement on the perimeter bordering the face. And as you'd expect from a technique called "face-framing highlights" this lighter-colored hair around your face adds visual interest and draws attention to your face.
The word ombre comes from the French word “shadow”. Ombre is the actual style. It is the transition of a lighter shade from a darker shade. Generally, Ombre’s work best on brunettes because it is the least subtle of all the techniques, a sombre is what we would see on blondes. That technique is more subtle, hence the word sombre. Ombre is great for the more daring girl, it is definitely more noticeable and typically more maintenance. Ombre is kind of like color blocking, there are no dark pieces left on the bottom to help keep it natural, just a nice transition between the colors.
The word “Balayage” comes from another French word meaning “to sweep”. When applying the color for a balayage, you sweep the color through small triangle sections of the hair onto a board or foil, giving it the natural transition down into the lighter color. In Balayage, there are dark pieces left on the bottom to create dimension and a more natural look. This technique looks like natural sun-kissed highlights throughout the hair. The transition is more natural and it
is less maintenance than an ombre.
Foilyage is another new trend similar to the above techniques. The process essentially combines the way balayage is painted and the vibrancy that foils achieves with the color. This technique is essentially the upgraded version on balayage and a saving grace for dark hair since it incorporates foil (meaning you get more lift).
Hair Painting is a huge trend right now with some of the more artistic stylists. With this technique, the hair is painted freely, by hand and usually with an actual paint brush and palette. Hair should be laid flat and is typically separated by plastic wrap. The lightener or color is usually not placed in any specific pattern but where it should be seen. The hard part about hair painting, is the stylist must have a super trained (or natural) eye for this kind of thing. This technique creates natural-looking and softer tones. Plus it is much faster than foils and there is no possibility of lines of demarcation. (Book a balayage for hair painting as it allows for the same timing )
Baby lights are super subtle and delicate highlights created using a technique that mimics the subtle, dimensional hair color seen on children’s hair. Hence “baby”lights. This look is very natural looking and creates the ultimate sun-kissed expression on the hair. This technique is very similar to highlights, with a touch of bayalage. The amount of hair in the foil is the main difference. Babylights require much less hair than traditional highlights. The result is subtle but beautiful and amazing for blonde on blonde dimension!
Lowlights involve darkening strands of hair by using colors that are darker than your natural color. In contrast, highlights use colors that are lighter than your natural shade.
Double process typically used when lightening hair by more than two shades. First the hair is bleached to remove natural or colored hair pigments, and then pigment is added into the hair to create the desired shade.
Toner is a sweet little product that neutralizes brassy yellow and orange tones on bleached hair. ... When applied to bleached hair, it takes it to more of an ashy, beige ,dusty, or platinum color. That means a much more natural-looking hair tone. This process is done after highlighting. It is a 5-15 min process.
Color gloss could be a semi-permanent treatment that can last from four to six weeks. Most formulas are tinted, although transparent shine treatments are available. Whereas a traditional color opens the hair cuticle to change the color from the inside, a gloss coats and seals the cuticle for a smooth surface.
A keratin treatment is a chemical process that smooths and shines frizzy hair. Results can last up to six months. There are many different versions of the treatment, the stylist can customize a blend of the formula to suit the customers needs. Some versions of the treatment release formaldehyde when heated but many newer versions, are formaldehyde-free. No matter the formaldehyde content, on a basic level, keratin treatments dive into the hair follicle and inject porous areas with keratin, an essential hair protein. Your hair will appear healthier, because it actually is.
