“Should I add some highlights in my hair?”
Hair Color Advice from Salon Piper Glen in Charlotte, NC
Do you want to make a change to your hair color and just not sure what to do? Sometimes it’s the subtlest change that has the most powerful effect. Lowlights and highlights are the easiest way to transform your style and make your friends take notice that something is different in that can’t-quite-put-my-finger-on-it sort of way. But which look is right for you and what do you need to know before you commit to your new color?
Benefits of Highlights Or Lowlights?
Adding dimension to your color can actually make your hair look fuller, give you some more volume especially at the roots and even revive your complexion. Highlights or lowlights are ideal if you want to give your locks a bit of a color boost and they’re also a great way to color your hair for the first time as you retain some of your natural shade too. They are perfect for lighting up the face – illuminating and injecting life into your hair color can work wonders for your skin tone!
What is the difference between Lowlights vs Highlights
Lowlights involve darkening strands of hair by using colors that are darker than your natural color. They aim to add depth and dimension to your hair color, whilst also making your hair look thicker! In contrast, highlights use hair colors that are approximately 3 shades lighter than your natural shade. The aim of highlights is to bring up the overall color of your hair, whilst softening the look of your hair color.

What Is Balayage?
Balayage is a French word that means ‘to sweep.’ In this technique, the lightener is swept or painted onto sections of your hair in a freehand manner. The hair color is applied from the mid shafts to the ends of the hair, with a few highlights applied through the roots. Balayage tends to be a few shades lighter than your base color, although we can also add fashion hair colors to the lengths of the hair. Balayage hair color adds depth and dimension to your hair color in a natural-looking sun-kissed way.

What Are Babylights?
Babylights are delicate highlights created using a very fine hair color technique to mimic the subtle, dimensional hair color seen on children’s hair. Babylights are very natural looking and low maintenance. Babylights work very well on fine hair, where more obvious coloring techniques may look too chunky. Babylights can be applied to any hair color or length of hair. They are a great way to introduce color to your hair in a subtle way. The highlights should be fine around the hairline and natural parting, with a soft graduation of color that is lighter at the ends.
