Men: get highlights done for summer

Lightening hair to boost its colour is not just for women. Do you want to do the same gentlemen? Opt for highlights and follow our advice below.

Why get highlights?

Whether your hair colour is natural or not, the ideal solution for summer is to get your locks highlighted by opting for a sun-kissed effect . This technique is perfect for brightening up your complexion. In both short and long hair, your colourist will advise you to get highlights . They add character and depth to your haircut, without you having to undergo a radical transformation.

The triple advantage of highlights:

● they give the impression of volume

● they help conceal thinning hair

● they add depth to thick hair to make a hairstyle look less heavy .

Important. Only a professional can adapt the width of your highlighted strands to suit your needs and desired look.

Which colours should I go for?

To add a real shine boost to your haircut, you should add different shades to blond hair or soften brown locks in a few sections. For a highly natural and sophisticated finish, the golden rule is: only lighten your base colour by 3 tones maximum. At all costs, avoid light blond highlights that are too far removed from your dark base colour. The contrast should be light and discreet so it looks tasteful. Opt for platinum strands in light blond hair, however, go for honey in light brown or lovely caramel shades if your hair is darker.

Good to know: protect your highlights from the sun, sea water and chlorine by applying a nourishing mask after shampooing, specifically formulated for coloured hair.
