A painting technique in which sections of hair are hand painted. Highlights are less systematically placed than traditional foil highlights, so the color grows out very naturally.
Using balayage hair painting techniques, a darker color is applied at the roots and mid-shaft, with color gradually getting lighter from the mid-shaft to the ends.
A softer version of the ombre, with a darker color applied at the roots and mid-shaft, with color gradually getting lighter from the mid-shaft to the ends.
Melting is similar to ombre and sombre techniques, but is typically done with 3 or more colors. The shades are blended together very gradually to create a soft color transition.
In contrast to highlights, lowlights involve a darker color, generally 2-3 levels darker than base color, to add warmth and dimension to hair.
Applying color to select strands of hair to make them lighter than the base color. There are a number of techniques for applying highlights, including foils, cap or brushes for painting.
Closely resembles the subtle, dimensional color you see on children, with lighter pieces of hair around the hairline and at the crown. Very small sections of hair are colored, with small separations between the foils.
Semi-permanent color can deliver a rich, shiny color, but will generally fade in 6-12 shampoos.
Demi-permanent color will give you about 75% of the coverage that permanent color gives and will wash out within 28 shampoos.
With this style, the hair is typically cut straight around the head at about chin level or just below the ears, often with a fringe (bangs) at the front.
In this softer alternative to the traditionally sharp/angled bob, subtle layers are added to create a less precise edge.
Similar to an A-line bob, which gradually gets longer towards the front, but with one side longer than the other.
A long bob, the lob is more medium in its length. The hair is typically cut straight around the head, skimming the shoulders or sitting at the collarbone.
A cut with no layers, with weight falling to the bottom of the hair. This style tends to work best if your hair is thin, fine or fragile.
Great for men with medium length hair. For a great contemporary look, go for a deep side part of high part. For a night out, lift the slick back look into a pompadour.
Resembling a military crew cut with undercut sides, but with “Caesar-inspired” bangs. Typically parted on the side, creating an attractive sharpness in facial features.
With this trendy look, the sides are tapered, with the top layer long and cut at angle. It tends to work well on on all face shapes, but works especially well for men with a round face.
Closely shaved sides, with a gradual increase in the length of hair to the crown. This cut focuses the eye on medium length hair on top of the head for a strong, pronounced look.
