Colour Services


We offer a comprehensive number of highlighting services, including full head highlights and half headlights. They are the perfect way to get a lighter shade of hair. Highlights are individually woven into your hair for a multi-dimensional look. We can create lighter, brighter or multi-tonal effects by working with iced blondes, golden honey and caramel highlights. These can be great ways to find new colours to compliment your skin tone.

Highlights or Lowlights can be partially or fully applied throughout the hair, from a variety of colours, from bold to natural. Partial highlights, commonly referred to as half head highlights, are generally placed around your face to accentuate your features and subtly brighten up the overall appearance of your natural hair colour.  

Half head highlights are a great way to lighten hair without undergoing a full overhaul of your natural hair colour. Full head highlights, on the other hand, create a much more dramatic, all-over colour transformation. Whilst this is not the same as a full head colour, full head highlights create a more even, defined colour lift and hair lightening effect throughout your whole hair.


Lowlights involve using colours that are darker than your natural colour. In contrast, highlights use colours that are lighter than your natural shade. Lowlights can soften and break up harsh blondes, creating a more natural highlighted effect. This helps your hair colour grow out naturally. Lowlights produce a more subtle result giving your hair a more natural finish.
