Highlights is the easiest hair color to maintain that adds volume and dimension to your hair, making it look fuller and more vibrant. They can also play with your looks, making you more youthful and radiant. Getting this treatment done at a salon is highly recommended, if you prepare a more professional look. A hair consultation is the best way for you to communicate with your hairstylist and is the most important role that you will play at the salon. It is also the only real control that you will have in determining the outcome. So, before scheduling your next appointment you better know what are the most popular hair highlighting techniques.
1. Babylights Highlights. Babylights are very delicate white blonde highlights created using a very fine color technique to mimic that blonde hue achieved if your hair is naturally lightened in the sun. One of the main attractions of the babylights technique is that it can be applied to any hair color and any length, long and short.
2. Balayage Hair Color Technique. Balayage is a French word that means to sweep or paint, it’s a highlighting technique. Ombré means to shadow, and it’s a seamless gradiation from darker to lighter. People do get confused by the two, but you can also combine them in a merged technique which can be very pretty.
3. Flamboyage Hair Color Technique. Flamboyage is a new hot trend and a low maintenance hair color technique. It is a combination of ombré and balayage, where transparent adhesive strip is used to color the hair and there is also different technique to achieve soft peek-a-boo highlights.
4. Ombré Hair Color Technique. In French, ombré means shade or shadow. In the hair color world, ombré is a dramatic two-toned hair color effect that is typically darker at the top and lighten on the bottom. Often the dark, top section is your natural hair color shade and the bottom section is lightened with hair lightener.
5. Sombré Hair Color Technique. Hair with sombré highlights gradually transitions from darker roots to lighter tips and all the shades fall within the same color family. It creates a subdued rather than harsh contrast. Multiple shades are interwoven throughout the hair to create the gradual shift from dark to light.
