Highlights and Lowlights
Technically highlights and lowlights employ the same method. A few tresses of hair are colored, but either shaded lighter or darker than the previous tone. Your hair will look more natural if you prefer to have thinner strands of hair highlighted rather than taking thick strands. It you are getting a hair-highlighting for the first time, it’s best to begin with preferably subtle highlights, so that you don’t get a feeling of getting overwhelmed with the change, instead of loving it. Moreover, if the results satisfy you, then you can go for thicker strands with either darker or lighter lights for different effects.
If you want to go for color slices, this means a bolder, more accentuated look rather than natural-looking effect. If you are interested in a rather bolder look calling for a real style-in check and be noticeable, color slices is just what you need.
As a try out, go for some bold, semi-permanent slices which are easily washable after a few shampoo applications.
Halo Lights are basically highlights in an unconventional way. These highlights are usually in a T-shaped section on the top of the hair. Halo lights create a satisfying glow around the face. If you want to ‘hip-up’ your style, Halo lights is just the right thing.
Dip-dyeing is a style stirred from fine art of dip-dyeing clothes. In dip-dyeing only the hair ends are colored with either faint or preferably bold shades. For a more chic look, go for complementary shades like red ends on dark brown hair.
Block color is the method in which the hair are completely colored, from roots till tips. Habitually, it goes well with a toner on top to remove or add richness to the look, since one color can seem ‘dull’.
A few hair strands are taken and colored using foils. This method employs different layers of color, giving a striking hip-hop look.
Before visiting your salon for a hair color makeover, it's always a good thing to do a little homework first. Learn some technical terms, so that you know what you want and can understand how you want it
