Hair colouring

Which highlights best suit my short hair?

Highlights are ideal if you wish to give a sun-kissed look to your hair. Discover the best way to enhance your short cut using this coloring technique which has a 100% natural finish.

Why opt for highlights?

They instantly illuminate your locks! Highlighting consists of partially making your hair lighter or darker to give it maximum shine. Its promise? Your color will perfectly reflect the light and show off very subtle highlights. Highlights are also aimed at personalizing your haircut. Furthermore, they are designed to suit your personal cut in order to enhance the smallest of details. They emphasize carefully selected strands which will give movement and character to the whole look.

Which type of highlights should I go for?

Opt for a shade which is one or two tones lighter or darker than your base color. If you wish to radically change color, you should go for classic hair coloring. As for the technique, opt for fine and concentrated strands which will give intensity and depth to your short haircut. However, it is rather difficult to create such elaborate light effects with such long hair. You are therefore likely to prefer highlights which start off discreet at the roots and end up getting gradually lighter towards the tips.

Which short hairstyles can have highlights?

You’re lucky: this season, short haircuts are more on trend than ever! If you wish to have a trendy look, be inspired by the Jean Louis David Autumn-Winter 2015/2016 collection. In fact, the new rounded version of the short bob can be perfectly enhanced with highlights. You can also combine highlights with different styles: from boyish short haircuts to bowl cuts, not forgetting layered and thinned out styles. However, always consider keeping a few centimeters of length so your highlights are visible and harmonious.
