Are lowlights or highlights better for GREY hair?
It’s a truth universally acknowledged that gray hair can be chic, glamorous, and oh-so-flattering. And when it comes to adding depth and playfulness to gray hair, there’s no better technique than lowlights (a good shampoo helps too).
Are lowlights better than highlights?
Lowlights are a bit less damaging for our locks than highlights because you don’t need to lift color for a darker shade. You simply deposit more color in your strands. Fewer chemicals are applied, and less damage is done. You can use a semi-permanent color to make the strands darker.
Are lowlights good for gray hair?
Lowlights, as well as highlights, help to create a multi-tonal look that can help camouflage any unwanted colors. Having a blend of light and dark can help to distract from new gray-hair growth and create an all-around more-natural look.
Can I color and highlight at the same time?
Typically, the double-color process is used when you want to take dark hair much lighter. Stylists begin by bleaching out your natural hair color (which could take one or several hours) then apply the new color. It can also be done with an overall color, then a highlight treatment during the second stage.
Is it better to have dirty hair before highlights?
If you’re coming in to get your color done, it’s better to leave your hair dirty ( the second day, the third day is fine). It makes it easier for our stylists to place foils in your hair and the color actually holds better to dirty hair due to clean hair being too slippery.
When should you get lowlights?
If your hair is looking a bit flat, lowlights can also help you fake some volume in a sort of hair color optical illusion. And if old highlights are looking dull (or if you want to darken them up when the seasons change), lowlights are a great way to give them a bit of depth and drama.
