For foils highlights we often use lowlights to tone them down and temper the frosted look. Lowlights help create a vibrant hair color that brings out your skin tone and eye color. Your hair color should never detract from your complexion, and too many highlights can make your skin look faded.
We are the best highlights color salon NYC. Sun-kissed brown hair instantly takes us back to the summers of our youth, when hours spent running around and playing in the hot summer sun took our naturally dark locks up a few levels without a single trip to the salon. We all know that as we get older, we do not have that kind of time to spend in the sun. But, thankfully, a quick visit with your hairdresser can get you that enviable “I spent all summer lounging by the beach” hair color you’re after.
This is the look that top dark-haired supermodels and celebrities love to rock on and off the runway. Natural, sun-kissed brunette locks look as though there are strands of sparkling, honey-toned gold interwoven with the dark base-much like bronde. The result can be achieved by a expert hairdresser creating highlights using the balayage technique.
The reason to trust your sun-kissed brown to a professional? Light highlights on brown or even light highlights on already blonde hair hair have a tendency to go brassy and orange – this is because copper is naturally within a brunette strand of hair – and often, with at-home kits you don’t have the ability to customize the level of blonde you’ll achieve. A hairdresser, on the other hand, will work with you to find the perfect highlight and lowlight colors for your skin tone.
Most often your hairdresser will use a balayage technique to achieve the look of hair that’s been lightened by lots of time outdoors. Painting free-hand highlights around the face and then intermittently throughout the hair for a truly natural look.
The upkeep for sun-kissed brown hair is easy. The balayage grows out without any visible lines of demarcation and, with the use of purple-toned shampoos and conditioners, you can keep your sun-kissed strands bright and free from brassiness. Just like after any hair color service, use shampoos and conditioners that have been formulated for color-treated hair and add moisture back in with weekly deep conditioning masks.

TIPS TO GET THE MOST FROM YOUR BALAYAGE HIGHLIGHTS:
Choose a highlight color that complements the rest of your hair, as well as your skin. Pink-toned skin suits blonde highlights. Yellow undertones should not have a deep gold tone. Protect your Balayage highlights with a color-enhancing shampoo and conditioner to delay color from fading and to prevent hair from drying out. Get a conditioning treatment afterwards to make the hair softer and smoother. Your balayage highlights will need to be touched up from about 6 -8 weeks, as the hair grows.
OMBRE HIGHLIGHTS / OMBRE COLOR
Ombre Highlights — Sometimes also referred to as Balayage, this is an alternative technique that is similar to Balayage in that the color is hand-placed. However, the difference with Ombre highlights is it’s a more artistic style where evenly-colored darker color at the roots gradually transitions to a lighter shade at the ends. Ombre color means “two toned” and is usually a more dramatic look that can be done with colors such as black to red or just a more contrasting blonde.
