Foil Highlights and Lowlights by the Artists at Monaco Salon

If you want to flatter your skin tone and your style, add some dimension with highlights or lowlights. Highlights will lift your hair color, while lowlights deepen and enrich your 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 natural blonde 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. 


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.

Teasy Lights

Teasy lights use a foil highlighting technique combined with teasing or back combing of selected sections of hair. Why tease the hair first? This technique creates a seamless blend and assures there is no visible line of  where the highlights start.  Teasy lights is sometimes referred to as foilyage because it emulates the look of balayage but using foils for more of a lightening effect.


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.  Learn more about our balayage service here.

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.

Far and away the best Salon in Tampa Bay.I have been a client of Krista for the past 13 years. She has been doing my extensions and color from 2004 until the present. Krista is an artist at her craft and makes each visit an enjoyable experience. The salon is lovely and her workmanship is superior. If you want an expert to handle your extensions and color look no further. Everyone else in town who claims to be an expert probably worked for Krista at some time and thinks they are at her level. Not so! Don't learn the hard way as so many other women have done. Invest in the best and you will not be disappointed!

This review is for stylist Billy, who by the way is nothing but amazing. I came to Billy to repair what another stylist had done to my hair. I showed him a picture of my hair that was taken just two days prior to what my color and the style my hair was. All I had wanted was the base roots done and highlights, what I got was a mess with my hair many different colors. I thought for sure my hair would never be the same. Billy’s confidence in correcting the problem was so positive at all times. He had no doubt what he was going to do. I have to admit I was crying as I had already been through so much with a prior stylist. But his confidence and the way he explained everything, why he had to this, and why we had to take things in steps to correct the disaster. As well as making sure he kept conditioning my hair to avoid too much over processing. He removed all of the different colors from my hair, as he put it, I am removing everything that stylist did to you. However, the other stylist over bleach my hair so there was still a lot that had to be done. I started thinking maybe he can do this, again his confidence in himself was, well, what I needed. After he completed what he needed to do for the base color, I had to come back for the final step the next morning. I was so sick when I got home, but I somehow felt he was going to come through. When he completed the final step the next morning and dried my hair I could see that my hair was very close to what it was. My heart was overwhelmed, I could not hold the tears of happiness back. I understood why he was so confident, he knew his trade well. I am a certified general contractor, I know a thing or two about knowing your trade. If you are reading this and you had a stylist just completely take away everything that you trusted, then you need to come to Monaco Salon and as for Billy. He is going to restore the trust you lost. One last word, Billy put hair extensions in my hair right after all the processing. I did not want really long hair just fullness and it to look natural it is really funny because people that see me every day don’t even know that anything happened to my hair, bad or good. Have you ever heard the term, DONE, well that is Billy. You want it this way, sure, consider it DONE ! Thank you Billy

I have been to numerous salons/hairstylists everywhere and this has been the best place in Tampa! I'm not exaggerating when I say this, but people have messed up my hair and I always have to come back for color correction. My hair is naturally black, but of course, I don't like my natural color, so I always try to get highlights. Ever since I went to NYC to get my hair highlighted, no one can match that UNTIL I met Dillon at Monaco Salon in Tampa!! He is ABSOLUTELY the best!! The first time I came to him was bc I walked out of a salon with 7 different colors in my hair and bc the salon was closing, they didn't even blow dried my hair! The next time, I couldn't get an appt with Dilon, I was stubborn to go to another salon in Tampa and my hair also ended up having 3 different colors with the front of my hair around my face was yellow/white bleached blonde! Then I politely told the other stylist that I can't have my hair look like that, so she scheduled me for the week, which she ended up not asking how I want it to be fixed, and then my hair turned black and darker than my original hair color! I told her before that I don't like my hair black, red or bleached blonde. Anyway, I'm done looking for a stylist in Tampa!! Going back to Dillon/Monaco, the place is very welcoming. I like the setup they have where you can see the Color Bar while they're mixing the colors. I had to wait a little bit for Dillon to finish working with another customer, but it was WELL WORTH IT!! (You can't rush this stuff and I wouldn't want him to.) He really listened to what I had to say and I like his personality--He is also honest, so talented, funny and gives you advice on what to do without pushing you to buy any of their product line, etc. It also made me feel like he took me in as a "lost puppy" waiting to be saved, haha!! I'm usually open to different styles/colors, but not when the stylists do not listen and let me leave the salon looking a "hot mess"! lol. I hope Dillon never leaves, because like I said, he got the hair color I wanted the first time around, which NEVER happens to my hair. He also cut/styled it and I ABSOLUTELY LOVED (and still do love) IT!!!!!! Thanks so much Dillon!! See you next time!! (:
