Coloring your hair can be a great way to mix up your look, enhance your best features, and add more dimension to your hair. If you love your natural color but want to add a touch of flair, highlights can deliver. Highlights lighten sections of your hair to brighten your look and add depth to your style. With hair highlights, you can opt for a natural look or high drama with chunky highlights or bold color. Your stylist at Bloom Salon & Beauty Bar will help you capture your perfect look with the color you’re envisioning.
Any shade of hair can be complemented with highlights. Even darker shades of brown and black can be lifted with caramel, lighter browns, and reds. When choosing the color for your highlights, your stylist will take your natural hair color and skin tone into consideration. For example, you may know you want blonde highlights, but your stylist will help you choose a hue that offers the right level of warmth for your natural tones.
Applying highlights is a work of art—literally! Your stylist will paint on color to different sections of hair and then wrap those sections in foil for processing. Typically, highlights are applied from the root down, so you will have the most color along the crown of your head. However, if you want a lower maintenance cut and color, your stylist may guide you toward “lived-in” highlights that allow your natural color to grow out without an obvious gap in your roots. The length of your appointment will depend on the exact color technique you choose as well as the level of lightening you’re hoping to achieve, but you will probably need to be at the salon for at least two hours.
Coloring your hair can cause damage if it’s not done right, so your first step should always be to make an appointment at a salon you can trust. Here at Bloom Salon & Beauty Bar, we’ve helped countless clients recover from hair color disasters. Spare yourself the disappointment and come to us first to protect your beautiful locks!
