Hair Highlight and Lowlights
Lightening selected strands of hair using bleach.
Darkening selected strands of hair.
A process that uses hydrogen peroxide to remove most of the natural pigment from the hair in order to obtain a lighter color. After bleaching, a toner is applied to the hair to impart the desired shade. Also called double process.
Highlighting -- bleaching selected strands of hair, often concentrated around the face -- is very popular, and with good reason: it adds visual interest to hair without causing nearly as much damage as allover bleaching, and unless you've gone drastically lighter, the roots won't be as noticeable. However, if your hair is very dark, highlighting may only give you reddish or light brown tones -- it's difficult to convince it to go blonde. Lowlighting is the opposite process of highlighting -- small amounts of hair are darkened.
