If you're looking to get highlights, we've got you covered with 6 popular highlights to choose from! Learn about the different types of highlights, what they look like, how to achieve them and more.


Hair Highlights

Hair highlights are the process of adding lighter streaks to your hair. They're a great way to add instant color to your hair, without having to dye it all over. You can also use them to bring out the natural highlights on your hair.


Traditional highlights

As a traditional highlight, individual strands of hair are sectioned out and then lightened from roots to ends, leaving some natural hair in between the foil sections. The goal is to create dimension and brightness in your hairstyle. It can be done on any type of hair, from straight to curly, and it's a great way to add some dimension to your look.



Babylights are a type of hair highlight that create a more natural look than traditional highlights. This is the technique in which strands of hair are lightly colored at the ends with a neutral tone to create a beautiful sunlit glow. Babylights are perfect for those who want minimal highlights. They're usually best for those with light brown hair, but they can also work on some brunettes. This technique is perfect if you want to avoid the high maintenance upkeep of many other types of highlights. They last anywhere from 6-10 weeks, depending on how often you wash your hair and what kind of products you use.



Bayalage highlights is a hair-coloring technique that is used to create a natural, seamless blend of different shades of color throughout the hair. The technique uses a combination of foils and freehand brushstrokes to create a more natural look. The main difference between a balayage color and other types of hair color is that it's a bit darker. The lighter colors are often called "natural," while the darker ones are more like a true balayage.

The process starts with a lightener, which is applied to the roots of the hair. The next step is to take sections of hair and apply toner to them, which gradually darkens in color until it reaches the desired shade. The best candidates for the style are those who have medium to dark hair and want to add dimension and depth. You need to visit a hair salon because only expert stylist can create beautiful and natural-looking bayalage highlights.



Foil-ayage is a hair coloring technique that involves using foils to create various color and texture effects. The stylist will wrap sections of hair around the foil, and then apply color to the hair. The foil creates a barrier between the hair and the color, which prevents the color from mixing with the hair's natural pigment. This allows for more vivid colors and less damage to your hair.



Ombré is a style of coloring hair that creates a gradual transition from dark to light on the ends. The technique is a favorite among celebrities and models, who love the way it creates dimension with their brunette locks. Ombre style is a popular and trendy new way to get a natural looking blonde or redhead. It is great for people who want to add more highlights to their hair without going overboard.



Sombré hair is a way to create a gradient effect with colors. It can be done by dying the hair in levels of light and dark, or by adding highlights to dark hair. These highlights are the darkest, most dramatic version of a hair color. The technique is used to create the illusion of depth. Usually, the hair will be lightened at the tips and gradually darken as it reaches the roots. Sombre hair is a great option for people with naturally dark hair.
