Which Colouring Technique is Right for Me?

Here, we break down some of the most popular highlighting techniques at our Shaw & Crompton hair salon in Oldham.

Highlights: Highlights are used to give hair a natural sun-kissed look. This result is achieved by applying individual foils to the hair – different widths and sections of hair, as well as different tones, are used to achieve the client’s desired look.

Sample Foils: This technique is very similar to traditional highlights; however, it is only used on one area of hair – most commonly the fringe.  Up to eight foils are applied to the hair and a subtle or dramatic look can be achieved depending on the colour used.

Partial/Half Head of Foils: This method allows you to create your own individual look. Foils can be added to the hair in a uniform pattern or randomly to allow you to achieve your desired look.

Full Head of Foils: This type of foils allows you the most dramatic change. A single colour, or an array, can be added to hair, giving a vibrant fun look.
