WHAT ARE HIGHLIGHTS?

Highlights are simply pieces of hair that are lighter than your natural colour. If your base colour is brown, you can add highlights that are a lighter brown, or even have brown hair with blonde highlights. For blondes, blonde highlights incorporate lighter blonde shades. It’s important to note that there are different types of highlighting techniques, too. Traditionally, foils are used to strategically isolate parts of the hair in various shapes and patterns, be that to create contrast that’s very bold, or very soft. There’s also a newer technique, Balayage, where highlights are hand-painted onto smaller, more random pieces of hair, resulting in a more lived-in look.

 

HOW TO TALK TO YOUR COLOURIST ABOUT HIGHLIGHTS?

Thinking about highlights? Open communication with your colorist is key, it’s important to first book a consultation. During this appointment, bring in photos of hair color you like—and that you don’t—and be sure to tell your colorist how often you’re willing to come into the salon for color appointments. Your hair makes a statement to the world. Tell your colorist whether you want that to be a whisper or a shout.

 

HOW DO I MAINTAIN MY HIGHLIGHTS?

Lightening hair can make it start to feel dry and brittle, so using the right products at home is key. Healthy hair also holds color better, no matter whether they have brown highlights or blonde highlights use the right products to maintain it.

Some of the brands known for best results are Redken, Kerastase, Paul Mitchell, Olaplex and many more available to purchase online from hair salons here on GoBeauty
