Foil Highlights

Highlights can be a single color or multiple colors, lighter or darker, in order to add dimension. Foil highlights go from roots to the ends and are very effective for adding brightness the hair.

Dimensional Blonde

Root melt and shadow root are terms often used to describe that lived-in blonde hair look. Allowing more of your base color to show is one way of achieving more dimension, or shadow root. After a highlight service, some clients like a single process color applied to the roots to create a darker base or to blur their highlights at the top of the head.


Balayage is a French technique for hand painting of highlights. Foil highlights use a brush too, but this technique creates bold yet subtle sweeping highlights for greater dimension. The results are more lived-in than foil highlights. Read more about our balayage services.

Ombre Hair

Ombre hair colors fade into one another: ombre provides a dramatic and less natural finish than your typical natural color. The shadow generally fades from darker roots to lighter ends, but the reverse is also possible.  The ultimate in handcrafted hair color the result can be a vivid color pallet or used to grow your natural color out gently. Read more about our ombre hair services.

Accent Foils

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


Babylights add a natural glow to blonde hair or a few hidden glimpses of color to darker shades. Babylights are achieved with a foil highlighting technique using a lot of foils around your head. In order to create a very natural look, we take finer slices of hair. The result is more delicate than a standard foil highlighting, designed to recreate the blonde hair of youth.


This foil highlighting technique mimics the look of balayage by backcombing or teasing the sections of hair before lightener is applied. This concentrates lightener on the lengths of the hair, making a nice 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.

Money Piece Highlights

Money Piece highlights add a bright frame of blonde around the face. It's an easy way to freshen up your look without a lot of fuss. Add chunky brightness to the front section of hair that falls around face, up to 10 foils. A great way to lift your complexion with a soft grow out phase.

Mohawk Touchup Highlights

This is a partial highlight service where the focus is just like it sounds. The top of the head from the forehead to the nape of the neck. This highlight touchup service is just enough to cover the essentials yet still gives you a lot of subtle brightness with up to 30 foils. A great touch up highlight service in between full foils or when you don't have a lot of time to sit in the chair.

How to Care for Color Treated Hair

Use products that are safe for color treated hair.
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.
