Subtle & Natural: Babylights

If you’re looking to switch up your hair a bit but don’t want to make a drastic change, why not consider babylights? We’re here to explain what this style consists of and why it’s taking the world by storm! Plus, something that’s music to a girl’s ears when it comes to hair – it’s low maintenance. When you’re ready, come down to Salon Antoine so we can pamper you with this striking look. We are located at 11092 Lee Highway in Fairfax, VA, and can’t wait to see you!

What are Babylights?

We’re sure you’ve heard of highlights, ombré, sombré, and even balayage, but have you heard of babylights? If not, we’re about to give you some insight into this subtle, yet stunning, style. First and foremost, to achieve babylights, our stylists will use foil and hand paint natural-looking highlights onto your hair. If you’ve been rocking one solid color and want to spice things up but not too dramatically, this is your calling! Also, if you’re trying to get or keep the natural look, you’re in luck because these tiny strands are usually no brighter than two shades of your real hair color. Do you know what this means? Less processing and less damage to your hair! You can also either get them all over your head or just a few around your face, which will bring attention to your face as well as highlights. If your hair has fallen flat and is looking one-dimensional, then babylights will definitely change that! You’ll be able to add depth and dimension, and you’ll draw attention to those gorgeous with these thin, effortless highlights at the same time with these thin, effortless highlights. Pair with a red lipstick and some curls and you’ll have heads turning as you walk by!

Taking Care of Your Color

When it comes to babylights, you can skip those constant touchups and you’ll get to maintain that ideal color for a long time. Luckily for you, you can wait up to 14 weeks or longer before you go to the salon again. Of course, if you want a touchup earlier, we’re not stopping you! However, you do want to keep in mind that you should use a color-safe shampoo, which you can get right here at our Salon, to keep the color you desire. You’ll love that babylights look great on any color as well as any length since it’s all about where they’re placed. Even when these tiny glamorous highlights grow out, your hair will still look flawless! You’ll have a mix of gorgeous colors at the bottom with your natural color at the top. You can’t go wrong!


Styling your babylights might be your favorite part yet! Whether you choose to curl it, throw in some beach waves, or show off the sleek and straight look, you are in no way limited. You can bet when you curl it that each and every curl will get noticed! Each bounce as you strut around will show off your volume and the contrast of colors in your hair. Are we favoring curly hair over straight hair? No way! If you decide to straighten your hair, you’ll be able to display each strand as soon as you step out of the house. Add some hoop earrings and a nude lip, and you’ll be a show stopper! If you’re a fan of beach or mermaid waves, you’ll love how the tiny highlights will enhance each and every wave. Additionally, on those days when you don’t want to spend too much time on your hair, just throw it up in a ponytail or half up and half down, and you’re bound to steal the show as soon as the sun hits each babylight!
