Am I Right to Highlight?


Highlights came into style decades ago, and they haven’t gone away. In fact, as a look at any red carpet event shows, it seems that highlights are more popular than ever. If you are considering getting highlights at a salon in Short Hills, there are a few things you should consider.

First, keep in mind that getting highlights takes some commitment on your part. The initial treatment can take up to three hours, and you will need to make visits for upkeep and maintenance. If you are not willing to make this time investment, highlights are probably not a good fit for you. Second, consider your natural hair color. If you already have light hair, highlights will not do much to affect your appearance. In these instances, you may want to consider getting lowlights, or darker streaks, instead.

If you have decided that highlights are what you want, you should know that there are two types of highlights available. First, there is the traditional method of applying highlights with foil. Recently, however, balayage has become very popular. In this method, your stylist streaks the hair with a brush. This technique results in a more natural, sun kissed look. It also allows your stylist to be more precise in placing the highlights. Finally, it is better for you hair. Foil is a heat conductor and can cause damage to your hair, especially if you get touch-ups often.
