hair highlight

Is your hair looking tired, bland or flat? Forget the flat, single-tone dye job of the past - the hottest hair fashion these days is highlighting and lowlighting. Today's tones are pronounced and eye-catching and the experienced hair stylists at Mina's Studio in Chapel Hill can you give you the new look that fits your features and personality perfectly.

What's the difference between a highlight and a lowlight?

The simple explanation is that a highlight lightens and brightens the hair, while a lowlight darkens and deepens it. For example, blonde you would use gold and honey tones for highlights and red and brown shades for lowlights. Usually, two or three colors are used throughout the hair for a textured, shimmering effect - any more than that and the hues can lose their contrast, look unnatural, too harsh or look muddy.

Which hair types are best for highlights or lowlights?

Any length, style, or condition of hair can benefit from highlighting or lowlighting. Whatever your natural color is you can go up to three or four shades darker or lighter to update your look.
