What is a Hair Tint?
A hair tint changes the colour of your hair permanently. Whether that be your roots, a select section of your hair or the whole head of hair. Hair tints will not wash out over time, however they will fade-so there is a general upkeep to maintain.
What are Hair Tints Best For?
A tint is best for those wanting to cover up grey roots – everyone’s hair grows at different rates, therefore a tint is a great way to cover up those hairs creeping through without constantly putting dye on to your whole hair.
How Often Will I Need Touch-Ups?
Based on the speed your hair grows will depend on how often you need touch-ups. If your hair is slow-growing, you may only need touch-ups every 6 weeks, whereas those with quick growth may need their greys doing 4 weekly.
What are Highlights?
Highlights are sections and strands of your hair that are dyed a few shades lighter than your natural hair colour; this is done to brighten the overall colour of your hair, and add softness and dimension to your hair. This allows your hair to frame your face more, and also create a little more excitement to your hair colour without damaging or dying your whole head of hair.
How are Highlights Applied?
The most commonly used technique colourists use is Foils. These are suitable for all hair types, however your hair colourist will discuss with you which technique they’ll use based on your hair style and length..
Foils are used for a variety of hair colouring treatments. A full head of foils is used for a refreshed look all over, we recommend a half head as an interim between your full heads, whereas a T-Section of foils is used for more subtlety, and a parting is usually added to create a 'holiday look'.
How Often Will I Need Highlights?
Depending on the style you’re going for, you can normally have highlights added to your hair and leave them for several months – as with half a head of highlights, you’ll only be looking at having half of your hair coloured, therefore there will be less regrowth, and less need for constant maintenance.
With a full head of foils, you’re looking at more regular maintenance, as your natural colour will begin showing (depending on how fast your hair grows), so you’ll need touch ups every now and again.
