Techniques to Consider


You can buy the hair coloring kits easily to get your hair colored. Make sure you thoroughly read the instruction leaflet inside the kit and follow the procedure. With this you can color the entire length of your hair in one color.
You can try out the various colors. Make sure you do not use a color 1-2 shades lighter than your hair, as this can give you a weird look after completely coloring your hair.


Hair highlights is the popular hair coloring technique. In this a few strands of your hair are highlighted with a lighter shade. The shade you pick for highlighting, must not be more than two shades lighter than your natural hair color.
One of the ideas is to add such highlights to your fringes. One of the chic hair color ideas is to have dual tone highlights which look extremely modish. Make sure you pick the right complementing tones.


In highlights, light colored highlights are added to dark-colored hair and in lowlights dark-colored highlights are added to light colored hair.
For example, getting black lowlights in blonde hair. Again choosing the right color is essential to avoid ending up getting an unattractive look with lowlights.


This is one of the professional techniques which is closely related with lowlights. In this technique, light hair is given a subtle change by adding darker tones to very thin strands.
Remember that twilighting will tone down your too-bright hair color by adding a slightly darker tone to it, not too dark though.


Chunking is similar to highlighting, with the difference in the width of colored hair stands. Large sections of hair are randomly colored in a bright color. This is an advanced technique to give a dramatic touch to your hair with the vibrant color shades.


This is amongst the new techniques used to add glaze to your colored locks. As time passes, the colored locks appear dull. With veiling, a semi-permanent glaze in a richer tone is applied over a permanent shade to add brightness to your old flat hair color.

Frosted Tips

Frosted tips is an all time hit trend. Just get a trendy haircut like a razor or a pixie haircut and add a light color to the tips. In this, 1-2 inches of your hair ends are colored. Make sure you visit a professional for this type of hair coloring technique.
With the aforementioned techniques, you can pick one that suits your haircut the best. One of the few tips is to check out fashion magazines which can give you an idea as regards to choosing the right color for your hair. Add that color in your hair and flaunt your voguish looks.
