Ready for Hair Highlights? Don’t Make These 3 Mistakes!, Northeast Jefferson, Colorado

Highlighting your hair is the perfect way to update your look, but anytime you deal with hair dye, there’s always the risk of something going awry. Fantastic Sams Cut & Color in Denver, Colorado, specializes in hair highlights and styling. Choosing the wrong color, having the highlights applied incorrectly, and not knowing the proper way to care for highlights can lead to a hair emergency.

Here’s a list of the most common hair highlighting mistakes and how to avoid them:

Hair highlightsNot Knowing The Different Types Of Hair Highlights 

Before you commit to hair highlights, ask your stylist to explain the difference between different kinds of highlights and techniques. There are foils, balayage, painted highlights, ombre, and more. Each type has its own application process and requires specific kinds of maintenance. Explore your options before choosing which type works best for you.

Not Changing Your Base Hair Color 

It’s important to realize your hair’s base color will affect the color of your blonde highlights. If your hair has red undertones for example, blonde highlights will likely end up looking orange. Dying your hair to a neutral base color before applying the highlights will ensure you get the results you envision.

Not Taking Care Of The Highlights

Color-treated hair is extremely sensitive when it comes to temperature and the kind of shampoo you use. If you don’t want your highlights changing color or fading only a few weeks after you get them, you need to take proper care of your hair. Use a shampoo specifically meant for color-treated hair, and never rinse with hot water.

Above all, the best thing you can do when highlighting your hair is to trust the work to Fantastic Sams Cut & Color. Their hairstylists are experienced and knowledgeable, and they’ll help you achieve the perfect look.
