If you’re not ready to jump into a full head of color, highlights are a perfect choice. You can still transform your hair hue without the commitment and upkeep of a full head of color. Read through these tricks and tips before booking a salon appointment.

Tip 1: THE BASICS…There are a few factors that contribute to the perfect highlight—size, placement and lightness level. You salon pro will know what to do.

Tip 2: FIND WHAT WORKS FOR YOU…Tone, lightness and color all depend on your skin tone and undertones. Your highlights should be customized for you.

Tip 3: CHOOSE THE RIGHT SHADE…From subtle to extreme pops, choose your highlighter level carefully based on the health of your hair, your natural haircolor and how often you want to go back.

Tip 4: SIZE MATTERS…The thickest, lightest pieces should frame your face and then lesson in size as they flow toward the crown.

Tip 5: FOILS, BAYALAGE, BABYLIGHTS, OMBRÉ, LOWLIGHTS AND MORE!…There are several techniques for applying highlights to your locks. Each will give a different level of dimension and finish, so do a little research before heading to the salon.
