Foil Highlights, Blonde Highlights by the Artists at Monaco Salon

If you want to flatter your skin tone and your style, add some dimension with highlights or lowlights. You can opt for a full head of highlights, which is ideal if you wear your hair up a lot. A half head of highlights, or partial foil, is used to touch up color on top and around the crown.

Highlights vs Lowlights

Highlights will lighten your hair color, while lowlights deepen hair color.  Lighter, beachy blonde highlights give a sun kissed look while lowlights add warmth and subtle drama. To emulate the look of born-with-it hair, add both highlights and lowlights. At Monaco Salon in Tampa, we are the hair color experts so offer different types of techniques for highlighting and accenting your hair with color.

Accent Foils, Face Framing Foil

Accent foils are just a handful of foils placed around the face to add extra brightness, either in blonde or to add pops of color.  Accent foils can give you that quick blonde boost in between your regular foil appointments.

Babylights are very subtle highlights. They are achieved with a foil highlighting technique but in order to create a very natural look, your stylist will highlight more sections of your hair, taking finer slices.  The result is more delicate than a standard foil highlighting, designed to recreate the blonde hair of youth.

A hybrid of balayage and foil highlights, teasylights gets its name because sections of hair are teased before lightener is applied. This technique creates a seamless blend between base color and highlighted ends. Highlighting the hair from the mid length down allows your stylist to emulate the look of balayage using a traditional foil highlight process.


Balayage is another highlighting technique, and one that is wildly popular today.  It's also referred to as handpainting or hand painted highlights, although the paintbrush is not unique to this method.  The method results in less lift and a more subtle look than foil highlights.

Just had the best hand painted balayage and cut of my LIFE with Melissa. She is incredibly kind, took her time, and I am obsessed with how my hair turned out. I am super picky about my hair and it couldn’t have turned out more perfect. Not only was Melissa amazing, but the staff is extremely helpful and they are all great communicators. The salon is very clean and their covid procedures are top notch (all chairs are divided by walls as well as their hair washing tubs). There is a reason this salon is so highly rated, don’t think twice about booking here!!

Taylor at the Bay to Bay location did my highlights and color melt. I wanted to go icy blonde with darker roots, and I'm in love with what she did for me! I haven't been to a professional salon for anything in years, and it was such a great experience. I was comfortable, the salon is gorgeous, and Taylor is super nice and communicates everything in a way that's easy to understand how/why the process works the way it does. I left feeling so confident and absolutely in love with my new color. She went above and beyond for me and really made the experience better. Taylor is changing locations to the Dale Mabry salon and I made sure to make my 6 week follow up appointment there with her so I could keep her as my stylist. For a first time at a real salon in years- it was truly the best it could've been.

Klodjana is the BEST stylist in Tampa hands down! Every time I see her my hair is blessed and I get compliments everywhere I go on the color!!! She’s not only amazing at the color kept / extension application / style she does but she’s so fun to go to and forms a genuine bond with the client!!! I look forward to seeing her every 6-8 weeks and the appointment goes by so fast because she’s so fun and genuine to be around!! Definitely recommend her if you want a life changing change in your hair!!!

When I first started going to Monaco, I was new to the area and my hair was more damaged than it has ever been. I was set up with Laura immediately and now I realize I couldn’t have been paired with a better stylist!Not only is she always so sweet and professional, but she makes my hair look and feel better than it ever has. Laura really saved my hair! She made recommendations on color, cut, and products to use at home, without pushing anything on me, and listening to her was the best decision I made.

My daughter wanted a hair makeover! We chose Monaco for its prestigious reputation and the talent we saw on before and after photos of clients throughout the years. We arrived at the salon and were greated warmly by the front desk staff. Our stylist Klodjana Ailu was fantastic! My daughter was nervous because she had not so great experiences when wanting her hair cut, lighted and styled. Klodjana asked all the right questions in the consultation and within minutes she was ready to do her magic! My daughter was beyond pleased. I absolutely loved the outcome. Very beautiful, fresh, current and the color was incredible. We will not go anywhere else! We reccomend Salon Monaco and our amazing Klodjana to everyone!

I can't speak highly enough of the salon and my stylist, Laura Folkes. I came to her with severely over processed hair with tons of breakage and dry ends. She was very attentive during my consult and was very honest about how to get my hair back to health. Laura was able to flawlessly match my natural color and gave me a fiercely fresh cut that was so great I didn't even miss my long hair, which I'd had for decades. I've been seeing her once a month since and she always nails my color (I know have red highlights) and leaves me with the softest, healthiest hair I've had in my life, which speaks volumes because I'm mostly gray and have some pretty wirey baby hairs. If you're looking for a true expert, go see Laura. You won't be disappointed.

Hair Color Care Tips

When it comes to ideal hair color care, this is a big one.  Use a shampoo that is safe for colored hair. The sulfates and detergents found in most daily shampoos are harsh, and can strip the hair of natural oils.  Without the hair's protective oils, your hair will feel dry, and the color molecules can leak out causing your color to fade.  Condition hair with a color-safe formula conditioner to give the hair's hydration a boost.  This will keep the hair soft and supple, and help seal in the color to prevent fading. If hair feels dry, add a 5 minute conditioning treatment each week.
Wash less frequently if you can, or use a dry shampoo to refresh tresses.  Rather than shampooing daily, try alternating days. Experiment with just rinsing and massaging hair, avoiding hot water which will just cause color to fade faster.  This will wash out styling products while distributing your hair's natural oils.  Follow with a color-safe conditioner.
Don't over do it with heat styling tools.  Use a protective spray designed for color treated hair before reaching for the curling iron or flat iron.  Avoid styling products that contain alcohol, as they can further dry out your hair, which can lead to breakage and more fading.
The sun's rays will not only dry out your hair, but will cause your color to fade faster.  If your hair has been lightened, it could cause those blond highlights to go brassy.  To avoid damage, use a styling product that offers UV protection like the Paul Mitchell line of color safe products, available right here at Monaco Salon.
