Full Foil Highlighting $120+
Full Foil – ($120+) Custom color placement throughout the entire head allowing for a full range of creativity. A full foil service consists of placing between 45-100 foils around the entire head, depending on the guest’s hair and color goal. A full foil includes foiling underneath your hair. If you pull your hair up in a ponytail or similar fashion, you will need a full foil.
What Are Highlights?
Highlights are a hair coloring method which adds dimensional color to pieces of your hair instead of coloring your entire head. A similar coloring option is lowlights, and the two forms are often confused, though they offer very different results.
The highlighting process is accomplished using either hair color or bleach, depending on what the guest’s ideal final result is. These pieces can range from thin and subtle to thick and bold, including everything between. Modern fashion trends lean towards favoring thinner highlights, but thick or chunky coloring always has a place in the beauty world.
Highlights Vs. Lowlights
Highlights allow a daring, vibrant contrast to your natural hair color by lightening pieces of your hair at least two shades lighter than the rest of your mane. The lighter the highlights are in comparison to the rest of your hair, the more drastic the contrast. People often choose highlights in the summer, as it adds a bright, sunny feel to an individual’s overall look.
Lowlights, on the other hand, offer the exact opposite effect. These are pieces of color which are at least two shades darker than the rest of your hair, and are often chosen during the winter months when fashion tends towards darker coloring.
Full Foil Highlighting
With full foil highlighting, color placement is done throughout your entire head, which allows for a wide range of creativity, and a multi-faceted end result that is without compare. It is recommended by professionals that individuals who typically wear their hair up – such as in a ponytail, bun, or similar fashion – use full foil highlights versus partial highlights. Partial highlights, another foiling option, only cover a portion of your head. Typically, this is applied only at the top of your head, from ear to ear, and from fringe to crown.
What To Expect
When choosing full foil highlights to create your new look, you should expect for between 45 and 100 foils to be used, which includes foiling done underneath your hair as well as on top. The exact number will depend on a variety of facts. A few of these factors include:
- The desired size of highlights. Individuals wishing for thinner pieces will receive more individual foils than those desiring thick or chunky ones.
- The exact style you are aiming for. Some guests simply prefer a look featuring less highlights than others.
- How thick your hair is. Thicker hair may require the placement of more foils than thin hair.
Full foil highlighting starts at $105. The price may be increased based on how many foils are needed. You should arrive at the salon with plenty of time to complete this process. Perfection cannot be rushed, and full foil highlighting can be a time consuming process.
