Haircolor Techniques: Highlights & Lowlights

You’re probably familiar with the term highlights. If this is the case, you may be familiar with the term lowlights. However, unless you are a Boise hair salon professional, you may not know the real difference between the two or why you should pick one over the other.

Closely related, highlights and lowlights are very similar but not the same. Together, and done right, however, they can bring your haircolor to new heights. Alone, they can provide your hair with added volume and movement to your style. That’s why the Boise hair salon stylists at unDONE would like to provide you with a little more information about these haircolor techniques and how they can maximize the overall beauty of your hair.

Highlights

Highlights and lowlights are used to treat specific areas of your hair, unlike all-over haircolor. To start, highlights are usually 1-2 shades lighter than your base haircolor. Used to compliment your color they don’t necessarily have to be blonde. In fact, some people with very dark hair may choose red, copper or ever blue highlights!

Depending on the look you’re aiming to achieve, thin highlights will look more natural while thicker highlights will stand out providing you with a more creative look. Another thing to consider is where your highlights are placed. Ideally, your Boise hair salon stylist will recommend placing them where the sunlight naturally hits your hair. This will not only make your haircolor look more natural but sparkle in the process.

Lowlights

As the less popular twin of highlights, lowlights blend into your hair adding a subtle change. However, they can be extremely useful when it comes to extending the life of your haircolor.

Lowlights are usually used to darkened particular strips of your hair by a couple of shades. This helps provide your hair with beautiful, subtle dimension. Coupled with highlights, lowlights can give you a more natural looking haircolor that will look better longer than a one or two haircolor style.
