Reasons to Get a Hair Highlighting at Home

Posted by HaircolorChameleon on Wed, Jul 19th, 2006
Instead of the professional assitance, you can always create your own hair highlight at home. Here are the reasons:
  1. Because getting a salon highlight can be expensive and hard to work into a busy schedule, many people are choosing to use DIY home kits.
  2. With the many choices available, it is important to choose a kit that is easy to use and produces good results.
  3. High lighting, low lighting, and refinishing toners for currently highlighted hair are all available in several formulas, depending on your current color.
  4. It also offers a precision brush for control, and how-to videos online. Many other brands offer similar options.

To pick the best color, follow these simple guidelines:

  1. Pink-toned people should avoid red shades
  2. Yellow-toned people may want to stay away from yellows or orange based colors
  3. Olive-toned people may want to go darker and use low lights

Some more tips on home hair highlighting:

  1. Always do an allergy test before dying your hair. Even if you have used the brand before, an allergy may have developed.
  2. Instead of using the gloves provided, you may want to purchase your own better fitting gloves.
  3. Unless the directions state otherwise, apply color to dry, unwashed hair.
  4. Hair highlights should go on the top layer for the best visibility. However, if you change your part or switch styles frequently, consider doing a layer or two below that to keep from looking unbalanced.
  5. Highlight from back to front, so you do not drag your arm through the colorant.
  6. Asking a friend to help with coloring can produce better results, as she or he can help with the back.
  7. When in doubt, leave the color on for less time instead of more.
