Hair Color Weaves And Highlights

by Joni

There are many people that would like to add some pizzazz to their hairstyle with a professional hair coloring service, but simply don’t know which service would be best.

This dilemma is easy to find yourself in with so many coloring services available.  I

t can get very confusing when the time comes to select a color technique.

The two most popular color services are overall color and highlights.

Depending on what you are looking for, both are great options for livening up your locks and adding interest to your style.  So, how do you decide which one is right for you?

You may even really want to do both but that may or may not be right for your hair or individual style.  Here are some guidelines to think about as you consider your options:

Select overall color if –

  • You have a funky textured style and you want to add some depth.
  • Your hair is extremely short.
  • You have more than 30% gray.
  • You have really dark skin and brows.
  • You look better in warm, vibrant colors such as red.
  • Your cut is already trendy enough and you don’t want to overdo it.

Select highlights if –

  • Your hairstyle is plain without layers or other points of interest.
  • If you have dirty blonde or light brown hair.
  • If you have a little bit of gray that you would like to blend away.
  • If you can’t commit to getting your roots touched up faithfully.
  • If you look great in cool colors such as blues and greens.
  • If your style needs a little interest around the front and a few chunky highlights would do the trick.
  • If you’re afraid of a big change.

Select both if –

  • You have a lot of gray but would still like the effect that only highlights can obtain.
  • You want to add red or warmth and still have some chunks of lighter color around the front.
  • You are trying to correct or change another hair coloring application before you get highlights.
  • If your hair has become too light due to over processing and sun damage or was lightened too much during your last color process.

Of course, there are many reasons why people choose the hair coloring services that they do.  The reasons may be as varied as the people themselves, so it’s always a good idea to really talk to your stylist about your options.

If you have an idea of what you would like, then let your stylist know to see if it is feasible.  Also, don’t be afraid to ask for advice if you do not have any idea of what you would like.

They may mention something you had never even thought of.  Working together, you and your stylist should be able to come up with the perfect color combination to update your look.
