When you come to the salon, you may be confused by all the color options to choose from. Your hair colorist/stylist may ask if you want highlights, lowlights, or both. These are hair-streaking techniques that add dimension to your hair color. So, when should you get highlights and lowlights?


When your hair colorist/stylist highlights your hair, he or she will add streaks that are lighter than your natural hair color. If you have lighter hair, you may want to consider blonde or red highlights. Women with darker hair and skin tones should consider a shade of caramel brown or copper.

Most women will find themselves adding highlights if they want to lighten their hair for a sun-kissed look. You can add highlights whenever you want to add dimension to your hair color. Highlights tend to look great with layered or bob hairstyles. They also are a great way to test out a new shade.



When your hair colorist/stylist adds lowlights to your hair, he or she will add streaks that are darker than your natural hair color. How do you know when to get lowlights or both highlights and lowlights? Here are some things to keep in mind if you are considering lowlights.

You should consider lowlights if you highlight your hair regularly. It’s ideal to get lowlights done every third time if you opt for natural (or thin) highlights or every two times if you have your colorist/stylist do chunky highlights. This prevents your hair from becoming over highlighted, which can cause it to look one uniform color over time. Another time when it may be ideal to consider lowlights is when you have had a hair color mishap. If your hair has turned out lighter than you wanted it to be, you can add lowlights to tone your color down.

Highlights and lowlights can be great for women who want to add a lot of dimension to their hairstyle. The right blend of colors also can make your hair color look more natural. On the other hand, it also can make it look more dramatic if very light and dark shades are used to show contrast. Whether you decide to do highlights, lowlights, or both, you should use a color-safe shampoo. Products that do not contain parabens, sulfates, and phosphates will keep your highlights or lowlights looking beautiful and vibrant between color sessions.
