Highlights and Lowlights
Highlights are a few shades lighter than your base color and are a great way to give hair a multi tonal effect. Add interest to brunette or black hair colors with warm caramel shades or honey toned highlights. If you prefer cooler hair colors we can add ashy tones with highlights. Lowlights are colors used to darken lighter hair colors and are typically only a few shades darker than your base color, though they make an impact when it comes to creating depth in your color. We can even use lowlights to add interest to naturally grey hair.
Foil Highlights & Accent Foils
Foil is the traditional application for lowlights and highlights but within that realm, there are various techniques we use to distribute the highlights to your hair. You can opt for a full head of highlights, which is ideal for anyone who wears their hair up so that the sunkissed color is even throughout. A full head of highlights can be as natural or as bold as you would like it, adding in as many foils as the hair will allow. You could also choose a half head of highlights to touch up color on top and around the crown. Accent foils are just a handful of foils placed around the face, either to touch up color or to add extra brightness.
Ok, it's not a real word but what else would we call the technique that combines balayage and foils. It's balayage but with extra lifting time, thanks to the foils. More lift means lighter and brighter. Read more about our balayage here.
Another hybrid of balayage and foils, where sections of hair are teased before lightener is applied, accentuating hair from the mid length down. But don't get hung up on the lingo. Tell us what you like or show us your inspiration and we'll combine techniques if we need to.
Natural Look of Babylights
Babylights are traditional foil highlights which are applied using a delicate hair color technique to mimic the subtle, multi dimensional hair color seen on children’s hair. Babylights are natural looking and a low maintenance color option. Babylights are a great way to introduce color to your hair in a subtle way. They work best on fine hair, and can be applied to any hair color or length of hair. The babylights should be fine around the hairline and parting, with a gentle graduation of color that is lighter at the ends.
