As everyone nowadays gets highlights lowlights done you already know what are the  highlights & lowlights? Highlights & lowlights are spot hair color processes. They can be used separately or together depending on the look you wish to achieve. Both can be used with a solid hair color. Here we are explaining  what they can do for your hair color.

Highlights consist of selecting thin or thick strands of hair that are then lightened at least 2 shades lighter than the rest of your hair. Highlights should compliment your natural or artificial hair color. One misconception of highlighting is that highlights are only blonde in color. This is not true. Highlights can be any tone or any shade of light or dark. As long as they are lighter than your overall hair color, these are considered highlights. For example: If your hair color is black, and you get dark brown tones put in, those are highlights. If your hair is brown, and you have lighter, caramel tones added, those would be also considered highlights.

If your hair color is a level 3 (dark black/brown) you can add highlights that are a level 6 (medium brown). For the most natural highlights lowlights, you should never go more than 3 shades lighter then the rest of your hair color. The object of highlighting is to give you a sun-kissed look and to bring depth and light to your overall hair color. If you color and highlight, it is not necessary to highlight every time you hair color. Opt for highlight every other hair color appointment.



Lowlights, for the most part, are very popular in hair coloring.  Lowlights can do wonders for a hair color. If you love the look of highlighting, but don’t want a dramatic look, lowlights are the way to go. Low lighting consists of taking thin to thick strands of hair and darkening them at least 2 shades darker than the rest of your hair. We recommend adding lowlights every third time you get your hair highlighted. This will help blend your highlights with your natural hair color, and you won’t have to run to the salon with dark roots every six weeks.
Adding both highlights lowlights is sometimes referred to as a tri-color service. It gives the most natural effect to your hair color. When both are done, it’s best to highlight the top a little more heavily than the lowlights. Also, adding more lowlights underneath will give your hair dimension.
