Hair Colour Terminology Guide – From Highlights to Lowlights and everything in between…

Highlights & Lowlights: Foil highlights and lowlights allow your colourist to add several different tones and shades to your hair. This can create a multi tonal look and is perfect for adding texture and giving the effect of movement in the hair. 

Toners: Often used after the hair has been lightened using bleach. Toners neutralise any unwanted yellow or brassy tones in the hair to give a cooler, often ashy tone. Toners can also be used to add warm tones to the hair.

Hair Colour Glossing: If you want to add shine to your hair or are nervous about having a permanent hair colour then colour glossing is a great introduction to colouring your hair. A clear gloss can be applied over your natural hair or over previously coloured hair to enhance the tones & refresh your colour.

Ombré: The Ombré hair colouring technique is when your hair colour gradually blends from one colour to another. It’s a great way to have fun with hair colour with the dark to light hair colour graduation. You can have the ombré hair colour technique on short, medium or long length hair

Balayage: The Balayage hair colouring technique provides a natural looking, sun-kissed hair colour achieved through highlights. Your stylist can either add the colour in a foil highlight or apply the colour using a freehand technique.

Fashion Colour: Usually brighter, vibrant colours such as blue or copper orange. Pastel hair colours such as pink and lavender are also popular colours to add to your hair. For an adventurous hair colour try multi coloured rainbow hair, silver-grey hair colours or rose gold shades.
