Highlights are strategically placed pieces of hair that are lighter than your natural color. They can be arranged using foils or freehand painted techniques like balayage.
Chunky highlights, popular in the ’90s, add dimension and frame your face. They are seen in celebrities like Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, and Kelly Clarkson.
Full highlights create a dramatic all-over color change using foils or balayage techniques. They require regular upkeep and touch-ups.
Partial highlights are a more subtle way to alter your hair color. They can be used for all-over brightness or delicate baby lights. Touch-ups are needed once or twice every year.
Balayage is a hand-painted technique that gives sun-kissed highlights without foil lines. It works best on textured hair and requires multiple sessions for those with existing highlights.
Foilyage is a technique that provides subtle pops of color using tiny strips of hair wrapped with foil. Ombre creates a gradual transition from one shade to another.
