Hair Highlights at Bella Capelli Salon in Durham NC– Thinking about adding some highlights to your hair? Owners, Gina Coonrad and Kirby Crocker from Bella Capelli Salon in Durham, NC say there are options and tips you should keep in mind for booking hair highlights on line!
A double process is a base color plus highlights. Make sure to book additional time at the salon if you want a two-step hair change, which looks more natural in the end. Gina says, “Double-process has received some negative attention for being hard on hair. Not true! It doesn’t have to be unhealthy for the hair when done by a professional.All the cold, dreary weather can make your hair look a little dull, so adding some soft highlights to blonde, red, and brunette hair will brighten up your look during the long months of fall/winter.”
Kirby advises clients to consider getting babylights! “These are subtle highlights placed around your hairline and on your part. It doesn’t go too deep within your hair,” Kirby explained. “Just think subtle, delicate — and it’s good for fine hair. The technique is taking really small pieces. Take a traditional highlight and cut it in half.”
Balayage is antoher highlighting technique. With balayage, a colorist meticulously paints hair to be highlighted & does not wrap in foil. In French, the word means sweeping or scanning. It’s just a myth that balayage always looks more natural than a foil highlight. “If [the colorist] is being heavy handed, someone can end up with these chunks right on their hairline,” Kirby explained. “You shouldn’t be able to tell the difference between a good balayage and a good foil in my opinion.”
