"Highlights" are strands of lighter colours in your hair and or "lowlights" are strands of darker colours in your hair. These can be done in several different ways but the two main methods are using done using foil packets* to separate the hair being coloured from the rest of the hair or using a plastic cap or bag to separate the hair. Both methods have their pro's and con's but what really is the difference between them?
(*There is a variation on the foil method using a type of plastic packet that either sticks or clips to the hair. In competent hands these do work quite well, although the foil method when used by an expert can produce a more personalized look for you).
At VirtualHairCare we recommend foil highlights as it is the only professional way to go to get the perfect look. Ask your hairdresser for more advice should you need it and check out our section on colour and highlighting and methods to suit you as well as how to choose the colours to suit you.
