What is the hair color technique called highlight?

Highlight is a technique that colors only one part of the hair bright. By doing so, the contrast with the dark part stands out, and three-dimensional effect of the hair can be emphasized. It’s easier to get it done at a salon, but if you know how to do it, you can do it yourself. Now, let’s see the specific method of highlight.

Brighten a part of hair with bleach

Highlight lightens up one part of the hair. To do that, first cover the part you want to highlight with aluminium foil and bleach it. You can stop there to get a crisp result like a mesh, or you can also apply hair color again after the bleach to make the color blend better.

You can also do it without bleach

Highlight basically uses bleach to lighten a part of the hair. However, some people may prefer not to use bleach because of the damage caused to their hair. In such a case, the strength of the contrast may not be as much, but there is also a method of just adding a bright hair dye color without bleaching.

Grasp the important points

In order to finish the highlight well, it is important to decide well the amount of hair to be brightened and the degree of brightness. You should also consider harmonizing the highlighted areas with your natural dark hair that grows from the root. If you want to create a three-dimensional effect, you should be careful with these points when doing highlight.
