Partial Highlights for a Subtle Touch or Maintenace
A partial highlight only applies to part of your head. Usually, the top part and sides. Also, partial highlights are less time-intensive and expensive than full highlights. However, we regularly alternate the two services for regrowth maintenance. Let’s discuss cost, time, and how this service compares to full highlights and balayage.
Do You Need Partial or Full Highlights?
Has your stylist ever asked whether you want full highlights or partial highlights? The type you need depends on your hair and desired lightness. Partial highlights work best when your current color isn’t dark or as a retouch for your last full highlight. A rule of thumb, the back of your hair isn’t dark, get a partial.
When Full Highlights Make Better Sense
We recommend full highlights if you desire an all over blonde look. If the back of your hair is dark, you need full highlights.
How Much Does This Service Typically Cost?
Partial highlights like any service depend on your hair, desires, and stylist. Our starting prices are a reliable estimate for most clients. Things like how much hair you have and the lightness you’d like to achieve in a single session increase the needed product and time. Likewise, these factors contribute to cost.
The Maintenace of Partial Highlights
Depending on the application, this method may be high maintenance. Again, we typically alternate between partial and full highlights to maintain contrast and touch up your roots. A lower maintenance hair color method to consider is balayage highlights.
Comparing Balayage to Partial Highlights
Balayage is the method of painting in highlights; usually with a brush. It’s also our most requested color service. Balayage can provide the appearance of natural, lived in highlights with trademark sun-kissed pieces framing the face. However, balayage is quite capable of bolder looks ranging from color melts to vivid unicorn hair. If you have a recent reference picture, it might just be balayage.
