Select a type of dye that will work best for your needs. Your selection may include semi-permanent, permanent or natural hair dyes. For at-home highlighting kits, compare your hair color with the original photo and finished highlighted look. Ensure that the type you select will give you the desired results you need. Choose a less dramatic color for a steady dye process, helping to keep the look natural.
Complete an at-home highlighting with a kit. Most convenience stores sell kits that thrive on being user friendly, saturating your strands in just the correct amount of color. Read the instructions provided within the kit. Highlight only several strands in small sections, gradually accomplishing the look. Follow the suggested time to let the hair dye sit; ensuring that this listed time is not exceeded.
Find a professional colorist for a flawless and natural highlighted look. Equipped with the necessary experience and top products, a professional can give your locks gradual highlights. Check with the stylist to ensure that she is aware you want gradual highlights. Enjoy your first session to receive minimal highlights, with a follow-up session in six to eight weeks for bolder, additional highlights.
Re-highlight the hair in several weeks, whether having used an at-home kit or gone to stylist. Pull previously un-highlighted strands into the cap or foil to create a gradual, perfectly blonde, highlighted ‘do.
Whether your hair-highlighting process is being administered by a professional or completed at home, be sure to test the hair dye product on your arm hair first. This will help you avoid dye mishaps or allergies.
