A highlighting service that is applied to only a portion of your head. These types of highlights can be placed around your face to frame it in or to brighten up your look. They can also be placed in the top part of your hair for subtle highlights. Let’s talk more, compare to full highlights, explore cost, maintenance and at home care.
ARE YOU READY FOR YOUR TRANSFORMATION?
Partial or Full Highlights?
Partial highlights are normally used only to go a few shades lighter than your natural hair color to brighten your look. You can also have them applied in between full highlight sessions to help keep the top roots from showing.
When Do Full Highlights Make Sense?
If you have dark hair and you desire a blonde look, you will need full highlights. Any look where you desire to be more than 2-3 shades lighter than your hair will need full highlights.
How Much Do Partial Highlights Cost?
There are several factors that can have an effect on price. Let’s break them down to a couple main factors. Service time and product costs. The main factors here are the length and thickness of your hair. Hair history also is a factor.
Lightening Process: The first process is most often completed with a professional bleach. Pricing is broken down by hair length for partial head single bleaching process.
|Starting Partial Highlights Base Price: Single Process|
|Hair Length, Thickness||Partial Head|
|Short to Medium Length||$140|
|Thick Medium to Long||$160|
Toning Process: Whenever bleach is used, a toning process is required to create your desired color. A single toning process is $35-$60. More than one toning process may be required to achieve your desired color and may be required if you have long or thick hair.
Bleach Protection Additive: Whenever bleach is used to lighten your hair it is very highly recommended to use a bleach protection additive. This will help tremendously in protecting the health of your hair. A single use additive is $35 for short to medium length hair. For long, thick hair or extensions additive can be $45+.
Hair History: If your hair has been dyed recently or has taken any damage recently this can affect the processes your hair needs as well as product needs to achieve your desired look.
Free Consultation: While the above information helps to demystify pricing, you can always schedule a free consultation to get an estimate of what it will cost to achieve your desired look.
Maintenance for Partial Highlights
Depending on the desired application, this method can be higher maintenance. Typically we alternate between partial and full highlights to maintain contrast and touch up your roots. Consider balayage highlights for a lower maintenance option.
Partial Balayage vs Partial Highlights
Balayage is highly requested because it has softer, less noticeable regrowth lines than traditional highlights. The idea is that less is more in creating a natural lived in look. The look is often created by hand painting instead of the traditional foiling.
