Highlights – Using Foil
Foil highlights are where fine weaves are selected and coloured. That means that some of your hair is left uncoloured and creates a natural effect.
When your hair is lightened they are called ‘highlights’ and if darkened the are referred to as ‘lowlights’.
We quite often use two or three shades which gives the nicest, multi-toned effect. That is to say that it mirrors nature which usually has different tones.
These are very natural looking highlights. They are designed to mimic the sun-kissed tones your hair may have had as a child. The majority of your hair retains its natural colour. We then add just a few light and bright accents which are scattered throughout.
A tint is a permanent colour that is applied to all of your hair. As a result, it can add depth or create lightness and is very good at covering grey hair.
As the colour is applied at the roots it will grow out in time. as a result, the tint will need to be re-applied but only at the root area.
A semi-permanent version of the original colour may be used to refresh the ends.
Glossing is a semi-permanent colour that gently stains your hair and will wash out in time. It usually lasts 4 to 6 weeks.
The benefit of this is that you do not get the regrowth you do with tinting. On the flip side, it doesn’t cover the grey as well.
It is a great way to try colouring for the first time to see if you like the effects.
Ombré means ‘shaded’ in French.
The technique graduates colour from a darker tone near the roots to a lighter one at the ends.
It gives you a gorgeous infusion of colour that makes a stunning accent to your cut.
Sombré is the name given to a soft or very subtle Ombré and it is just that. Like Ombré hair, it graduates from dark to light but in a more subtle way so the fading is very natural looking.
Because of the very subtle graduation in colour, Sombré works really well with blonde hair as well as brunette. It, therefore, has the advantage of growing out without the need for recolouring.
Balayage is another French term and means ‘sweep’.
This technique is a clever combination of Baby Lights and Ombré. The colour is quite often painted on by hand. As a result, you will achieve a very personal colour that is unique to you.
It is also a very natural looking technique with little regrowth. That is to say, that it can be a low-maintenance colour.
Dip-dye is a great technique if you’re looking to make a real statement.
It creates a clear, edgy distinction between the top part of your hair and the length. Dip dye looks great with bleached, pastel or bright coloured ends.
This technique can be stunning and will compliment your total look. It will create a real statement and garner you many compliments.
This is a gentle way to ready your hair for another process. That is to say, if you wanted to go really light from a dark base, this is how we would do it.
Pre-lightening effectively removes some of the existing colour from your hair. This gives the next colour a lighter base to work from.
In other words, it allows us to achieve our target colour more accurately.
Not all hairdressers are born equal! Some don’t always have the level of knowledge needed to colour hair properly.
