Halo Highlights with Hovermale

If I have a client looking for a slight change, I go straight to recommending highlights, particularly, the halo highlights technique.

This technique is simple and doesn’t require much upkeep.

Halo Highlights Technique

The color is applied on the hair around the face for an instant brightening and framing effect. When the hair is worn up, the highlights then create a subtle dimensional effect.

Why Balayage is taking Hair-Color to a whole New Level

Balayage Highlights in Tampa

Tampa highlight clients are switching over to balayage hand painted hightlights. Its softer, lasts longer and gives that sun-kissed look.

For example I have a client who was strictly highlights done perfectly. Finally after much persuasion she decided to embrace change.
