Blonde highlights in hair can be described as small slices, pieces, wefts of blonde hair that interweaves and creates a contrast with your other hair color that is normally darker or brighter.
There are many techniques used to create blonde highlights in hair and some of these include;
- Foils, where hair is weaved using a tail comb, separated, color applied to the hair on foil, and then left to process without changing the hair colour outside of the wrapped foil.
- Balayage, where hair color or bleach is painted directly to the hair using a tint brush, usually in slim vertical strips.
- Streaks and frosting were all the rage 20 years ago, where a plastic or rubber cap is placed over your head, and then using a croquet hook, a small weft of hair is pulled through, and bleached lighter. Once the desired color is achieved, excess color is rinsed away, the cap removed, and the hair now has two colors.
- Ombre, where bleach is applied in time intervals starting from the ends to the mid lengths.
