Highlights and Lowlights what does this mean
When we are Highlighting or Lowlighting, we selectively separate out small amounts of hair which are then lightened or tonally changed to create a striking effect.
Why the different Methods?
There are basically three different methods used to achieve highlights and Lowlights
Ok so what do I choose, Full head, half head 3/4 Head, T Section ? … I’m Confused
For your very first visit we would generally recommend to have a full head of highlights, and for alternate visits you could then choose to just top up with a T Section.
The T section, is where the highlights or lowlights are applied to your parting, and the sides close to your face, so that any re-growth does not show, however if you regularly wear your hair up, this would not be adequate.
Half head and 3/4 head, if you never wear your hair up, this may be the choice for you.
During Half head and 3/4 head high;ights, the hair is highlighted or lowlighted from the top to either halfway or 3/4 of the way down your head, depending on your requirements.
As this highlights the top layers of hair that are on view, this would be sufficient if you always wear your hair down.
Highlights aren’t always required to be placed throughout the whole head, and may be chosen to be used in sections of the hair depending on the look that is required; again we will be happy to discuss this with you at your consultation.
There are many different highlighting techniques such as, slicing, block, tipping, dipping, shoe shine, ask us about these when you come in for your highlighting consultation.
If a toner is required to be used you will need a patch test 48 hours before
