Hair Color applications are always best performed by a Kid’s Room professional, whether for a simple application or a permanent color.
There are two major approaches to hair color: An overall color using one color tint, or multiple colors and applications to produce variations in tone. The most popular applications are highlights, lowlights and a combination of other techniques such as balayage, ombre, and splashlights.
Highlights involve lifting or lightening of sections of the hair to produce a variety of stylish effects. This can be gently spread throughout the hair for a natural look or be concentrated on the tips, bangs and other areas to create a different finish.
Lowlights are great for achieving more depth, texture, and complementary tones. Lowlights utilize darker colors on various sections of hair.
Foiling will streak the hair with lighteners. This technique is not used to achieve a natural fade or look but to give the hair a more stylized feel.
Hair painting refers to the application technique where the color is applied freehand or without separating the areas of the hair which will be treated. Since color is applied freehand, directly onto the hair without separation, the end effect will give the hair a natural blend of highlights.
Balayage means ‘to sweep’ in French as the stylist will sweep a brush up and down coating the front of the hair and leaving you with a natural, sun kissed look.
This extremely popular technique fades the hair from the darkest color tone starting closest to the scalp and gradually lightens towards the ends or tips.
The ombre hair color technique lightens the hair in a soft gradation where the hair is lightest at the ends and gently darkens as it gets closer to the roots. Ombre is meant to give the hair a natural faded look, as if the hair was naturally lightened by the sun. The major advantage of Ombre is that as the roots grow out, the look is maintained.
