Highlights are THE ideal technique for a beautiful and subtle color. Discover why you should adopt them and learn how to choose the right tone according to your base color.
Why should I opt for highlights?
Highlights promise to illuminate your hair by adorning it with tones lighter than your initial color. They correspond to a Contrast at Jean Louis David. This technique has a discreet and natural finish which aims to reproduce a sun-kissed effect. If you have already opted for classic coloring, don’t hesitate to add different tones using highlights. In fact, an even color tends to give a “helmet” effect, making your hair look flat and unnatural. This technique will therefore emphasize your haircut, giving it maximum relief and movement.
Which color streaks for which hair coloring?
Opt for a shade one to three tones lighter than your base color to guarantee a natural result. If you have brunette hair, lighten your color using auburn, mahogany or copper-colored highlights. Hazelnut highlights or dark brown will also do the trick. As for light brown hair, choose golden or caramel highlights which will instantly bring out your hair’s shine. Do you have red hair? If so, stay in the same tonal range by creating streaks such as light red or strawberry blond. Finally, if you have blond hair, you can adopt any shade of blond- it just depends on your desired look!
How do I maintain my highlights?
Your highlights don’t require much upkeep. It’s a temporary coloring technique which ages very well over time by gradually fading when you shampoo your hair. Simply visit your hairdresser every three months for any touch-ups needed. Finally, pamper your hair at home by integrating the products from the Color Therapy range into your hair regime. As the weeks go by, your hair will look shiny and full of vitality.
