Best Salon For Highlights In NYC. Best Balayage Highlights Salon NYC. The Do’s & Don’t’s!
Thinking of going lighter? Highlights for hair can bring out your bone structure and make hair shimmer in the sun, but go the wrong route and the look can turn stripy or brassy very quickly. Fine Artistik Salon is the best salon for highlights in NYC and our L’Oreal Professional colorists are award winning hair colorists for being the best balayage highlights salon NYC.
With highlights, placement is key. Always place the brightest and fattest highlights around the frame of the face. Highlights should be darker and sparser at the root and lighter at the tips—think ombré but way more subtle. The same way the sun would lighten hair naturally.
Over highlighted hair that reads like one color is unsophisticated and flat looking. Highlights should vary in size and lightness and should accent your base color, not overpower it. Speaking of base color, make sure your highlights match your hair’s tone. If you have a warm base, then you should have a warm highlights. If you have a cool base, then your highlights should be sandy or beige, and if it’s a neutral base color then your highlights can be either warm or cool.
Although dimension is good, too much variation can look unnatural. Never have more then three shades woven in your hair—a base, a highlight, and a low light—otherwise your hair color starts resembling something you’d see on a Rainbow Bright doll.
Highlights should be brighter and paler in the summer when you’re spending more time outdoors and the earth is closer to the sun, casting a more yellow light. Highlights should be deeper and more golden in the winter when we lose our summer glow and the earth is farther away from the sun, casting a bluer light.
Don’t ever have your highlights so light that they match your skin tone. This will make you look washed out. You always want contrast between your skin color and your hair color. Of course, you don’t want too much of a contrast between your base color and your highlights, either. Don’t ever have your highlights more than three levels lighter than the base color, or they’ll look stripy.
Your gorgeous, golden highlights are an investment, so treat them like you would any other prized possession. We suggests using a moisturizing, low-sulfate, color-safe shampoo and conditioner and washing hair less often.
There are (at least) a couple of ways to highlight your hair. The most common way to highlight hair—and the oldest trick in the book—involves applying bleach to the hair and wrapping it in aluminum foil and the latest: hair painting balayage highlights.
When done properly, this style of highlighting can look as natural or unnatural as you want. You can ask for chunky, obvious highlights if you’re looking for a dramatic effect.
However, if you really want your hair to be a work of art, balayage is your best bet. This method of highlighting hair has been around for literal decades (since the 70’s), but it’s just recently become incredibly popular, thanks to a bevy of celebrities who have been seen sporting the look.
