What are Highlights?
Highlights are often used to describe any type of selective hair lightening, it usually refers to the
process of using bleach to add dimension to certain parts of the hair. The most common method
of highlighting used by many top notch salons is the foil method. The hairdresser uses a brush
to strategically apply a light color or a lightner, depending on your hair type, using foil to
separate the highlighted strands from the base. The customer can decide where the highlights
may go, highlights typically start from the tip of the roots to the ends.
Should I get Highlights?
Highlights are best used for giving the hair dimension, highlights make the hair appear fuller.
Highlights are recommended for those who have thin and fine hair. They are also excellent for
people who are dealing with grey hair, making the new hair less visible.
If you are looking for an aesthetic, highlights are also great for you! But keep in mind since they
do start from the root you have to visit the salon every 2 months or so (Depending on the hair
growth) to preserve the color and prevent your roots from showing!

lightness around the face to enhance your beautiful feature, like cheekbones and eyes.
