This is our most requested color service. Clients love the gorgeous and current look, hair looks nature-enhanced, glossy and expensive. It can be subtle or strong, whatever you like, it’s all about the application technique, freehand technique. Clients love the natural soft look and the low maintenance grow out.
Balayage Highlights works on light or dark hair and can be warm, neutral or cool toned, Service levels include Premier, Signature and Accent.
Balayage is used to create different highlight and hair color effects such as Ombré, Sombré, Bronde, Ecaille and Color Melt.
Common Add-On Services with Balayage are, Olaplex, Overlay, Shadow Root, Base Break and Lowlights
Foil highlighting is the process of using foil to separate strands of hair which have been woven out and will be lightened from strands of hair which will remain darker.
Highlights can be very bold and streaky or very fine for BabyLights. The highlights tend to be a consistent pattern of lightness from root to ends. Some clients prefer this to Balayage which is more subtle at the roots and bolder at the ends.
Foil Highlights can easily combine Single Process color in between for natural looking gray coverage. Low Lights can be easily applied in between the foils for a nice blend of highlights and lowlights as opposed to alternating highlight and lowlight.
Foil Service Choices are Full, Signature or Accent
Common Add-On Services with Foil Highlights are Olaplex, Overlay, Root Color, Base Break, Shadow Root, Lowlights between Foils
All over Colors
Single Process Color – Achieves grey coverage or a significant tonal change. Our preference is to do Highlights with our Single Process colors for added dimension. You may want to think about choosing an option that combines Balayage or Foil Highlights with a Single Process Color.
Base Break Color – A gentle color that is used to slightly lighten the natural hair color. A Base Break with highlights creates a soft blended blonde. Please note the only time that Base Break Color is a stand alone service is when the client comes in for a quick visit in between their regular Highlights and Base Break service to extend the feel of freshly done Highlights.
SINGLE & DOUBLE PROCESS COLORS
Base Break Color – A gentle color that is used to gently lift (lighten) the portion of hair that will not be highlighted. Combining a Base Break with Highlights creates a softer, blended blonde. The only time that Base Break Color is a stand alone service is when the client comes in for a quick visit in between a Highlights with Base Break visit to extend the feel of freshly done Highlights.
Single Process Color – If your goal is to achieve grey coverage or a significant tonal change, then an all over Single Process Color is for you. Our preference is to do some foil work with our Single Process colors for added dimension. You may want to think about choosing an option that combines Foil Highlights with a Single Process Color.
Glaze – When combined with Single Process Services it is done to either refresh faded ends or for a tonal change. With Highlights a Glaze is often used to achieve a cooler color or with Highlights and Base Color it may be used to add various tones and depth.
Double Process Color – With a true Double Process Color the hair is pre-lightened and then that hair is colored again with a second color called a toner.
ADD ON COLOR SERVICES
Bowl Balayage – After the hair is colored with either a Single Process or Base Break hair color, we paint lighter streaks around the hairline and/or at the part while you are laying back in the shampoo bowl. It is a quick and highly effective way to get highlights around the face.
Single Process or Base Break – Adding root color in between foils is a great way to blend out and cover gray hair or lighten and soften a natural color that is too dark.
Shadow Root – This is a very popular trend where the hair is lightened and then the roots are darkened slightly. We love seeing more depth and this is a great way for the regrowth not to show as quickly.
Glaze – When combined with Single Process Services it is done to either refresh faded ends or for a tonal change. With Highlights it is used to achieve a different tone, which could be cooler or warmer.
Low Lights – We use Low Lights for a lot of Corrective Color. It is also a nice way to make a Highlight really POP, if there is not darkness then the lightness does not look very light. We love the added dimension Low Lights give.
Soften Hairline – Another at the Shampoo Bowl Service. After Foil or Balayage Highlights are complete and the hair is rinsed at the shampoo bowl we paint a very gentle lightener directly on the hairline around the face and it softens any dark baby hairs, it is very subtle and a very nice way to give added brightness around the face.
Olaplex Treatment – Olaplex is a bond multiplier that is added into the lightener or the hair color and it protects the integrity of the hair shaft. We often use Olaplex during Balayage Services to protect the ends of the hair.
CORRECTIVE COLOR SERVICES
Corrective Color is often a combination of various color services, most often combining Highlight Services with Single Process Color and other Add On Color Services like Lowlights and Overlays. Corrective Color Services can be very time consuming with the client needing to process two to three times, for this reason Corrective Colors Services are only booked through our receptionist or via email.
As Color Experts we understand these choices can be confusing to a new client or to a regular client who has a maintenance schedule that requires alternating Color Services. We are happy to help you choose the right Color Service. If you have ANY questions please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 404-250-9100 and we will be more than happy to help!
