Accent Pieces $50+
Accent Pieces – ($50+) Custom color formulations designed to produce pieces of color variation. Whether you want to go a bit lighter, or add depth to your allover hair color. Try just adding a few. Approx. 5 pieces or fewer.
What Are Highlights?
Highlights are pieces of hair colored at least two shades lighter than the rest of your head, used to create dimensional color schemes. They are often confused with a similar process called lowlights, although the placement of dimensional pieces make the two very different.
The highlighting process is accomplished by using either hair color or bleach. The pieces can range in size from thin to very thick, or fall anywhere on the spectrum between. Modernly, most people lean towards thinner, more natural highlights. Thick, bold highlights, however, never go out of style, and are always a great fashion choice.
Highlights Vs. Lowlights
Highlighting is a way to add depth and dimension to your hair by tricking the eye into believing hair is more voluminous than it really is. A more drastic contrast can be created by lightening the hair three or more shades lighter than the rest of your locks, while a more natural look can be achieved with a more similar coloring.
Many people confuse highlighting and lowlighting because the process is the same, involving coloring placed via foils around the head. The difference is that while highlights are two shades lighter than the rest of your hair, lowlights are two shades darker. Some people use highlights and lowlights together to create even more volume or originality to their style.
Few Foil Highlighting
Few foil highlighting is a fantastic way to add a bit of contrast and dimension to your already gorgeous hair. It’s a wonderful option for someone who has never had highlights before, and would like to take multi-dimensional coloring for a test drive before getting a more extensive process done – like partial or full foil highlighting. The final product offers a very natural, sun-kissed appearance which can be added to later should you wish.
What To Expect
When getting few foil highlighting you can expect for approximately seven foils or less to be used. Speak with your stylist about what look you’re trying to achieve so they can work with you to create perfection. The final cost will vary slightly based on exactly how many foils are used, as well as how thick the highlights are.
Although few foil highlighting does not encompass as much time as partial or full foil highlighting, you should still be sure to leave enough room in your schedule for your stylist to work their magic.
