Follow these 6 easy steps to get the highlights you’ve always wanted:
1. Choose a Look
Before selecting a look, make sure that you explore the different types of highlights currently popular. Color is also very important. For darker hair it is best to stick to red or caramel colors.
2. Prepare in Advance
Avoid washing your hair at least 24 hours prior to getting highlights. This way the oils in your hair will minimize the damage that chemicals can cause.
3. Get Ready
Adding highlights to your hair can be a messy process, so be sure to wear clothing you don’t mind permanently staining and the plastic gloves provided in your kit. Brush your hair as you normally would right before you start.
Take strands of hair and add the highlighting product so that your hair is completely saturated. Make sure to check your hair throughout the process to see how it’s coming along. You can do this by wiping your hair with a towel and checking the color. Expect the color to be a bit lighter once your hair is dry.
5. Apply Conditioner
After highlighting your hair, rinse it, add conditioner, and rinse again after 5-10 minutes. Don’t use shampoo, as this can cause the color in your hair to come off.
To finish, blow dry your hair and style it so that you can show off the new you. If necessary, wait a few weeks and repeat the process to get the desired look.
