'Hair highlight colors' is a term that is frequently searched by people looking for a makeover. Some people would prefer a subtle change, while others would prefer a complete overhaul. It's natural to be confused about whether to go for a vibrant color or something more natural, which hair color highlights you want, which honey blonde highlights would actually suit your skin tone and hair, whether to go with a balayage, babylights or low lights... and the list goes on. You might not want your hair stylist to make all of your decisions, so we've put together this highlights look-book to give you some ideas if you don't want her to.

The Different Types of Hair Highlights and Colors
It is important to note that temporary hair color does not penetrate deeply into the hair shaft and is only effective on the hair's outermost layer. It is easily removed from the hair with one or two shampoo hair washes. Parties with a theme, as well as other similar occasions, are ideal for using temporary hair color highlights.

Semi-permanent hair color can last for approximately 4-6 hair washes before fading. Because it contains no ammonia, it is ideal for when you want to experiment with a different hair highlight color.

Permanent hair color can last for several months, or even until new hair grows in. Permanent hair highlights are able to last for an extended period of time when ammonia and an oxidizer are combined with the coloring agent. Although permanent highlight human hair wigs are an option, we recommend that you only use them when you are certain of your color choice.

Smooth hair highlights are achieved by using thin strands of hair, whereas bold streaks are achieved by using thicker sections of hair. Highlights are created by using colors that are similar to your natural hair, whereas streaks are created by using colors that stand out. Unlike hair color highlights, which are closely spaced, hair color streaks have a larger space between them, which makes them appear more dramatic.


Highlights and lowlights
A color that is darker than your original hair shade is used to color the hair strands in this technique. This technique differs from traditional highlights, which use a lighter shade than the original to achieve the same effect. Lowlights are particularly effective on blonde hair shades, as they add depth and dimension to your overall hair color appearance. Indian women can achieve the same result by using mahogany or burgundy lowlights on their dark hair.

The use of babylights
These are delicate highlights that are achieved by using very fine strands of hair to produce a natural, subtle, but stunning appearance. This is accomplished by dividing the head into extremely small sections and coloring each section with a highlight shade, which allows them to mimic the natural appearance of a baby's head, hence the name.

Colores ombres
With this technique, you can gradually transition from one hair color at the roots to another at the tips, while still keeping the middle color as a transition shade throughout the length of your hair.

Balayage is a hairstyle that is worn in a wavy or curly manner.
While streaks are noticeable, balayage-style highlights appear much more natural in their appearance than streaks. To achieve this hair color style, the colorist uses a casual approach to hand painting the highlights to add depth and dimension to otherwise flat hair. Balayage is a hair color technique that involves the use of three or more different hair colors.

dyeing with a dip–dye
This hair color style combines two different hair colors to produce a striking and bold effect. Dip dyed hair is distinguished by having a dark shade at the roots and a lighter shade at the ends. What distinguishes it from an ombre shade is the absence of a middle hair color shade to ensure a smooth transition from one to the next.
