Ombre blonde hilites can blend or be bold

May 12, 2011 By: manager Category: Blonde Hair Colors, blonde hilites, french haircutting, hilites

Have you tried the new Ombre hair color technique? this technique will give you interesting dimensional hilites that will enhance your natural or “non natural” hair color. This technqiue can be done bodly with peek a boo lights shining through the darker hair like a veil or you can choose to have a more natural approach that looks like the sun kissed the hair. The concept is the hilites are more around the middle to the ends of the hair. This is not your normal hilite that is positioned on the top of the head. go ahead and try something new today.

We had a client that had a more light golden blonde and we painted on the ombre hair color to really bring more light around the face. We used a lighter pale blonde to give her hair some zest. I just love how it looked when she ran her hands through her hair. So beautiful how the light shined on her hair.

Think about it. It’s different, It’s beautiful.

Solid blondes with a hint of dimension brings out the shine

think about it. You have been coloring your hair for years but it lacks the luster and shine that you crave like the magazines. Ask for some dimensional hilites or lowlights if you are to light. This will break up the base color and make your other color pop and gives interest.  Try some alternate tones besides just the hilites such as strawberry blonde that makes your skin look more apricot. Or if you are a warmer brunette ask for toffee or break the base of your natural color that looks more sun kissed.

If you are a high maintenance blonde you know that it costs you more money every month and then you add hilites every other month, try keeping the hair toned with a color balance that will give you more of a softer creamier tone that is lower maintainance than hilites. Sure keep the hilites going but maybe do some packets vs all over.

Balyage hilites are french hair painting

April 15, 2011 By: manager Category: Blonde Hair Colors, blonde hilites, french haircutting, hilites

Balyage is another word for hilites in French. I learned how to do the french hair

painting years ago when we flew in this French hair stylist from France. He had

trained alongside Fredrick Fekkai whom is from New  York City. Anyway, this

guy was so talented and detailed in his training that I learned so much that weekend.

He was worth every penny to learn the art of how to paint the hair. It’s not like

just blobbing the color from the scalp to the ends, it’s about a feeling that while

painting it, you are looking at where the light will shine onto the hair and how the

color chosen will illuminate the actual hair strand when the light hits it or the

appearance of the light hitting the hair. This is one of my favorite ways to color

hair. this technique looks incredible on blonde hair. Light blonde, dark blonde,

any blonde looks fabulous in this painted way. We also have done the peek-a-boo

technique that that allows the color to peek through when you lean over or the

hair blows in the breeze like at the beach. This is the best technique of hiliting

that will grow out naturally if you want that beach look. It takes a skilled stylist

to pull this off. Try it some time.
