With so many terms we throw around either on our Instagram page , or during a consultation I thought it'd be a good idea to explain some of these words and what they mean exactly !
Below mentioned are the most common words we use to describe colour . If you think of any others you'd like explained ,drop us a line in the comments section .
Baby lights : super tiny highlights that are weaved extremely finly , much thinner and finer than standard highlights .
Under the part : foiling that is done so you don't see any foil lines coming from the scalp.
Root shadow: When your highlights are toned down at the root( at the basin ) for a softer look and not so bright from the top of your head.
This can be either very subtle or a bit more noticeable . Perfect if you love to feel quite blonde but not " barbie " bright !
Balayage : This doesn't mean dark roots light ends ! Balayage means to paint in highlights freehand with the brush , not using foils .
It gives a really natural feel , and perfect if you hate the regrowth line that foils give you.
Face framing : Highlights placed around your hairline .
Lowlight -Used to break up a blocky blonde . This doesn't have to mean " brown " through your blonde !! Lowlights can be as soft or as visible As you like . Perfect for creating texture and depth in your colour .
Toner : a semi permanent colour applied to create different tones - this doesn't always mean simply " purple " toners to cancel out yellow .
We can create absolutely anything , from soft pale golds , creamy , beiges , pearly , caramel, light ash , anything ! They only last in your hair a few weeks But you can also have a fabuloso pro colour conditioner mixed up to take home with you to maintain the colour specially created for you .
Base break : When your hair is lightened half to 1 shade at the roots , usually between the foils once we have rinsed them out , or In between foiling appointments . It softens the line between your natural hair and the highlights .
