Make a Statement With Highlights

Whether you don’t want to completely change your hair to a different color or you want another shade to contract and complement your current hue, we highly recommend highlights! If you aren’t too sure which color is for you, contact us at Salon Antoine today to schedule a consultation. We hope to hear from you soon!

Why Add Some Highlights to Your Hair?

There are many benefits to adding some highlights to your locks. Sometimes, they initially show off some of your best features, such as your eyes or jawline. In other situations, they can add more spice into a solid color whether the strands are one or three shades lighter. You will also ultimately get that bold and rich look that you are craving. In the summer, the streaks also tend to shine through as soon as the sun hits them. Plus, we’re always wondering about the maintenance when it comes to dying your hair. With highlights, it’s easier to keep up with it than when it comes to a full head of color. Not just that, even when they grow out, they still look beautiful as ever and blend seamlessly with the base shade.

Highlights can be very low-maintenance, depending on the color that you go with. While it’s suggested to visit the salon every two months or so for a touch-up or change, this is completely up to you. If you currently have brown hair and you decide to get caramel streaks that start at the root, your hair will still look gorgeous when the roots begin to show. Sometimes, individuals choose to initially have the highlights start a few inches from the top of the head or lower near the ears. No matter which you think works best for you, you’ll achieve that natural look in the end. And the great thing about highlights is that they can be accentuated when there is more than one shade blended into the hair, so come see us as soon as possible if this is something that you’re interested in.

You have plenty of options when it comes to styling your highlights. First, you can choose to straighten your hair and show off the two or more different tones. If you opt to curl it, you’ll instantly grab the attention of others with the contrasting shades. Of course, to limit the use of heat, there are also other ways to style your strands. You can simply let the hair dry on its own and show off your natural look. You might also go with no-heat curlers that will give you that wave you want without any damage. Of course, if you’re a fan of frequently grabbing for the flat iron, invest in a heat protector to keep your hair looking healthy for as long as possible.
