This technique is where color is applied freehand to the surface of hair. The color is hand swept by the colorist from mid-shaft to ends, for natural-looking highlights.


This look is low-maintenance and uses the Balayage technique to paint color onto the bottom half of the hair length. Hair is colored darker at the roots and fades to a lighter hue at the ends.

Partial Highlights

These highlights are placed around the face. Please make sure to clarify which area the partial highlights will be applied to. The addition of face-framing color can add volume and body to hair.

Full Highlights

As it sounds, the color is applied to every section of your head, from the nape of your neck to your hairline. The highlight color usually appears in greater contrast to the original hair color and can look quite dramatic if a very light hue is chosen for dark hair.

Hair Glaze

This liquid formula is applied all over and adds shine and semi-permanent color that typically lasts for up to two weeks. Some glazes are clear, which you can think of as a top coat for color. Glosses can also provide intense conditioning and often help repair damage to hair.


A semi-permanent color is applied to damp hair to even out any unwanted hues. This is a temporary fix for reviving color.

Hair color can bring a big or small change in your life. Pick a color that best complements your skin tone to help you look and feel healthier and happier. Create texture with the right hair color. Smart placement can help hair look thicker and more voluminous–ideal for fine hair.
