Highlights vs Lowlights – What’s The Difference?
Think of highlights and lowlights as a pop of colour instead of a full transformation – they can be used to either brighten (highlights) or deepen (lowlights) your natural shade without doing a full-on hair colour overhaul!
What Are Highlights?
Simply put, highlights are strands of hair that are lifted to be a few shades lighter than your main base hair colour. They brighten up locks, whether your Loré Hairdressing stylist goes for only one level of lift or a more contrasting effect.
Highlights work through any base colour, from blonde shades to bold reds and even dark brunettes, adding light-boosting luminosity that flatters everyone.
What Are Lowlights?
Lowlights take the base colour deeper. They’re added when you want a little extra depth in your hair and can be used to neutralize brassy tones or correct colour that’s been lifted too light.
On bright blondes, this might mean adding honey blonde hues to lend a little warmth, while on light brown hair, slices of dark chocolate brown enhance the richness of locks and up the shine. Unlike highlights, they’re typically achieved with a demi-permanent, toner or gloss instead of a pre-lightener, which means lowlights are also a gentler option.
