The LOOK: Spring’s Hot Highlights
Saturday, March 17, 2012
Getting ready for spring? We know that this means for many a highlight upgrade. And this season finds three highlighting trends... so here's how to ask for them.
1. The LA splice
Think surfer girl, California girl, or good ol' Narragansett Beach girl. Get this more dramatic highlight by asking for splices of color in strategic placement... along with some weaving, this can make your look a carefree, beachy one.
2. The ombre highlite
Think Sarah Jessica Parker or Jessica Biel. Ask for dipped ends in some places and midshaft down-weaving, only two or three levels lighter than your root color (or it could look like you need a retouch). Remember: pictures speak volumes.
3. The good girl foil
This is achieved by a very fine weave... not much... just to add a hint of natural highlight (about three to four levels of lift). Think Jennifer Garner, Anne Hathaway, and the American sweethearts of the world who unite in the good girl foil.
Now welcome spring and those sun-kissed tones, no matter which girl you feel most like being!
