In the Jean Louis David salons, highlights are called a Contrast treatment . This partial colouring technique will boost your hair’s colour, whatever that may be. But before you try out this technique, learn how to choose the right shade of streaks for your base colour.
Warm tones for brown hair
Your main aim is to add maximum warmth and light to your hair. To do this, intensify your colour with hazelnut or copper streaks. If you have very dark brown hair, go for chocolate highlights which will naturally illuminate your hair.
Caramel tones for light brown hair
Sometimes light brown hair can be seen to be lacking in radiant shine. To avoid having a dull colour, opt for caramel highlights. With their warm tones, they’ll be remarkable for giving depth to your haircut. The golden nuances are also perfect for you if you have light chestnut hair. Furthermore, you will have a guaranteed sun kissed effect!
Orange tones for red hair
If your hair is dark or flaming red, go for red streaks by choosing lighter tones. Say goodbye to blond highlights! You should keep a certain amount of consistency for a natural result. However, if your colour is a light red such as strawberry blond , blond highlights will suit you perfectly.
Light highlights for blond hair
If you are already blond, you should really go for blond highlights ! Do you have dark blond hair, such as ash blond? Go for honey or golden streaks. Alternatively, if your hair is light blond, go for platinum, ice or baby blond highlights.
