Lowlights vs. Highlights

What’s the difference between highlights and lowlights? Highlights lighten hair by adding brighter shades to complement skin tones. Lowlights enrich dark shades in hair allowing strands to look more vibrant. You can use both treatments separately, but together they can provide a very harmonizing look. Lowlights help highlights blend in with your natural hair color, so color treatments don’t look as fake and drastic.

Stylists suggested getting lowlights in between highlights to keep your hair looking great. For brunettes, red, copper and gold lowlights work best. Blondes should turn to copper and gold lowlights to keep highlights from looking brassy.

There are several things to consider when getting high or lowlights. First off, go to a professional. The two hair treatments are not quick processes you can buy in a box. Each treatment should be customized to your personal hair and skin tone. Second, don’t go crazy at the back of your head. This area highlights naturally. And finally, go for a natural look. Your hair tones should blend seamlessly.
