Natural Looking Highlights

Natural Looking Highlights
These pictures are of highlighted hair even though they may appear very natural.

Many fine strands of color woven through the hair create a very believable and equally stunning effect.
These strands are woven evenly throughout the hair. The tiny strands need not be equal in size and are often more attractive if the vary in circumferance. They can be as tiny as a few hairs but should not be larger than pencil size.
On medium to dark blonde hair, extra light blonde is used to lighten and brighten.
Try using two shades - alternating one created with bleach and one created using a high-lift tint.

You can see from the rolled style, that there are several colors of highlights in this model's hair. When her hair is fluffed, it creates a very natural effect.
On dark hair, red, carmel
or even light brown create a pleasing mix of color.

The subtle highlights in this dark brown hair are created with bleach! After the 'blonde' highlights are achieved, a color glaze, such as Redken Shades EQ, is applied over the entire head to tone and blend the colors.

This type of color weaving is created using a 'rat-tail' comb to part the hair and foil to contain the hair and color mixture until the processing is complete. It is most successfully done by a professional hairdresser or color technician.
