Like blond or brown hair, your hair color can also be enhanced by beautiful highlights. Learn to choose which streaks are 100% suited to your hair and how to maintain your color over time.
Why get streaks?
This temporary coloring technique is perfect for adding relief to your hair. Modelled on the Contrast treatment, it consists of making your hair partially lighter. However, the selected strands are much larger. First of all, this technique adds tone to your color with luminous highlights. It also gives personality to your haircut, by emphasizing any movement. Finally, it gives an immediate impression of volume.
Which color(s) should I choose?
Always opt for shades one to three tones lighter than your base color. Avoid any colors too far away from your initial color which give an unattractive “bar code” effect. Opt, therefore, for dark brown tones such as chocolate brown. They add shine and light to your hair in a natural way. Furthermore, go for a pigment-rich intense color so it is perfectly visible on your black hair.
Our advice: always go to the salon to get streaks done. Your hair color requires professional and personalized work so the result is long lasting and meets your expectations. So don’t attempt it on your own at home, you could end up being disappointed!
How do I maintain my hair?
Once you have got streaks put in, they don’t require much upkeep. Also, they will fade gradually as you shampoo your hair. Go to your hair salon every 3-4 months to revive your hair’s radiant shine and for any touch-ups to your roots. At home, adopt the Color Therapy regime. With this hair regime, you will prolong your color’s radiance whilst keeping your locks healthy.
