The brightness of the tone depends on how bright the accents are planned to be placed. Quieter transitions are suitable for those who need volume and well-groomed appearance.

Features of highlighting depending on the length of hair

Owners of long hair or several elongated strands are not recommended bright elements - experts say that they will look unnatural. The best option: a discreet toning on a dark color or light highlighting. If we are talking about short hairstyles, then you can use any style and any contrast of colors.

So, football fans order curly hairstyle followed by coloring "under the ball."

It is worth remembering that melirovanny hairstyle looks more voluminous, while toned has a more intense color. To get both, wizards use both methods simultaneously.

Fighting gray hair

For those who do not consider gray hair noble, giving a solid and confident look, the ideal way is hair coloring. This can be a complete painting of gray, or coloring or highlighting. If the gray hair is not so much, highlighting the male can be the best way, because it does not harm the hair.

Whatever the option of coloring you choose, you should not hold it at home. It is best to go to a good salon, where the master will not only advise the image that is ideal for your hair type, face shape and lifestyle, but will also be able to choose the right technique with which you can change the style.

  • thrash or free hand technique, when a master with chaotic strokes applies painting composition, creating a slightly sloppy, at the same time bold style),
  • balayazh (assumes coloring of tips in natural colors, at the same time either a contrast border is reached, or transitions are made soft),
  • toning (for example, make soft sand or caramel emphasis on bangs),

Male highlighting - advantages and disadvantages

Unlike female highlighting, men are not painted with the entire length of the strands, but only the tips. Due to the nature of the structure, male hair in the root zone is less amenable to dyeing. Therefore, the coloring composition on the roots do not apply. Shades can be used different, but preference is recommended to give natural shades close to the original color of the hair. Highlighting male hair is a procedure that allows you to refresh your appearance and change your image without resorting to radical changes. This partial staining of strands has several advantages:

  • Soft change of image.
  • Gentle effect on hair.
  • Hairstyle looks fashionable and emphasizes individuality, a sense of style.
  • Lightened hair tips improve complexion.
  • Visually, this hairstyle rejuvenates.

Among the shortcomings it is necessary to note the difficulty of finding a good experienced master.Despite the fact that male highlighting is no longer surprising, this procedure is still not very common. Because of this, the cost of partial staining is quite high. In addition, highlighting impracticable on very short haircuts.

Types of highlights for men

Highlighting a man's hair is done in different ways. Not necessarily limited to natural shades, close to the original hair color. You can choose contrasting bright hues to create bold bright images. The following techniques of partial dyeing are applicable for male hair:

  • toning,
  • color highlighting,
  • thrash
  • balayag
  • painting gray hair.

To focus on any part of the hair, use the technique of toning. Most often, such staining is performed on male haircuts with bangs. Accents in the form of light shades are made on bangs.

Color highlighting involves the use of several shades. As a result, it is possible to make the hair color deeper and more interesting. This hairstyle looks stylish. However, to achieve the desired result, it is important to choose the right shades. They should be harmoniously combined with the main color of the strands, and between themselves.

Trash is a technique that originated in the USA and quickly gained popularity in different countries of the world. The second name is the “free hand” technique. It consists in the chaotic coloring of the tips of the strands. As a result, after such painting it is possible to emphasize a free casual style.

Balayazh - a technique of painting the tips of the strands in colors that blend harmoniously together. For coloring in this style will suit not only related shades, but also contrasting. The border of transition from a natural color to colored tips can be both sharp and smooth (soft). Balayazh suitable for short men's haircuts.

Highlighting is a gentle method of painting gray hair. In this case, it is not only the tips or the lower part of the strands that are colored. It is permissible to apply the dye composition to the entire length of the strands in order to hide gray hair. Especially highlighting is suitable for men who have a little gray hair. In the presence of a large area of ​​gray hair, partial painting will most likely not allow achieving the desired effect. In this case, you will need to dye all the hair to match the natural color of the strands.

How long should the hair be?

Practically any male haircuts are suitable for partial coloring. The exception is too short haircuts (for example, sports). Some salons offer to do partial dyeing at any length of the strands. The optimal length for low-key light highlighting is 2 cm or more. Highlighting a short haircut in combination with styling "hedgehog" allows you to create a stylish and unique image.

For dyeing elongated male hairstyles is not recommended to choose bright colors. When using shades that are far from the original hair color, the hairstyle will not look natural. For short haircuts, any of the above techniques are suitable.

It should be borne in mind that regardless of the length of the hair and the characteristics of the haircut, there is a chance that after the first dyeing it will not be possible to achieve the desired effect. This is especially true for owners of dark hair, since dark men's strands have a poor ability to absorb pigment. Therefore, it is possible that the staining procedure will have to be repeated twice. And it takes a lot of time.

What shades to use?

Men's haircuts with highlights look spectacular. If you use natural shades, the hair will look natural after dyeing. For dark hair is recommended to choose these shades:

For fair hair shades are better suited:

  • honey
  • coffee with milk,
  • chestnut,
  • milk chocolate,
  • cinnamon,
  • wheat,
  • caramel

These shades are perfectly combined with light (including medium-brown) hair. With their help, you can effectively shade the natural color, make it rich and multifaceted.

Performance technique

There are two methods by which perform male highlighting. Most often, such partial staining of the strands is performed with a brush and foil. Foil enclosed under the strand. Brush apply coloring compositions. After that, the strand is wrapped in foil. The same is done with the rest of the hair. The paint is kept for a certain time, after which the foil is removed and the head is washed. In this way, you can lighten selective strands or make highlights on all hair.

The second way is to use a special cap with slots. This technique allows you to make highlighting on the male short haircut much faster than using foil. The cap is worn on the client’s head. Using the hook through the holes stretch the strands. Paint them in the selected color. After the time specified in the instructions, the paint is washed off. Take off the cap and dry the hair.

Hair highlighting can rightly be called art, which is able in a matter of minutes to create a unique image and lift your mood.

One of the most benign ways to change hair color (and also not out of fashion for a long time) is highlighting, in which only individual strands, and not all hair, are brightened.

Highlighting rapidly broke into the world of beauty and immediately became extremely popular. Today, this coloring technique is over 10 years old. And if earlier it was an extravagant novelty, then today the highlighting of hair can be safely called a classic.

This technique helps to create a unique, each time a new bright image. Highlighting hair at home is also realistic, but at least some hairdressing experience is desirable for it, otherwise it is difficult to achieve the desired result. If you surrender to an experienced master, the result will surpass all your expectations: you can drastically change the image and adjust both the haircut and facial features.

The aim of the work is to study the technology of highlighting in hairdressing.

consider the concept and essence of highlighting,

identify the main types of highlighting,

to analyze the technological features of highlighting,

consider current trends in highlighting.


1.1 The concept and essence of traditional highlighting

Highlighting is the coloring only part of the hair, that is, individual strands. The whole process consists of combining dyed and natural hair in such a way that it looks interesting and attractive. By highlighting the hair, you can achieve visual volume, as well as emphasize the depth of shade.

The final result is undoubtedly influenced by some factors, such as the original hair color, the desired shade for dyeing the strands and of course the proposed highlighting technology. At the moment there are a huge number of types of hair highlighting and a lot of performance techniques. About the most popular of them is worth talking in more detail.

Traditional hair highlighting rightfully occupies a leading position and remains a favorite type of coloring in women and girls, regardless of their age group, for many years. So this season, traditional highlighting is not in a hurry to recede into the background, still remaining at the peak of popularity.

The technology of classical highlighting implies a uniform distribution of the strands, which are lightened along the entire length of the hair with special bleaching compositions. As for the chosen thickness and width of the strands, they can vary depending on the intended result: they are usually 3 to 5 millimeters in size. It is worth considering that the thinner the strands are taken, the more natural and natural the hairstyle will look as a result.

After completing the basic procedure for bleaching hair, you can proceed to the next step, such as toning hair. This is done in order to soften the apparent contrast between dyed and natural hair color. If the color of the strands is not quite even, or you want to give them a fashionable shade, toning your hair will come in handy. Mainly used light shades: pearly, pink, beige, pearl and yellow.

If it is necessary to leave the image more natural and natural, in this case it is better not to do toning. Hairstyle looks very interesting with the effect of slightly sun-bleached hair, which is especially good at hair that is light or blond in nature.

For many years, traditional or classical hair highlighting has been deservedly the most beloved and popular type of hair dyeing for dark-haired women of any age.

The classical highlighting technology serves for uniform staining of the strands over the entire length, while the width and thickness of the strands usually vary from 2 to 5 mm and depends on the desired end result. The thinner the strands are recruited, the more natural is the result on dark hair.

The subsequent toning procedure is used to soften the contrast between the main dark hair color and the color of the strands, as well as, if necessary, to align the color of the strands along the entire length, or to add some fashionable shade to the highlighted hair.

Toning does not apply in cases where it is necessary to achieve the effect of strands faded in the sun. This type of coloring is invariably preferred by some famous brunettes and brown-haired Hollywood.

In our country, the highlighting became known in the mid 80s. Although nobody knew such words in those days, everyone was painted with “feathers”. The coloring itself took place according to a simple and painfully familiar pattern: first, a plastic bag with holes made in it was put on your head, then with the help of a crochet hook, thin strands of hair were pulled through these holes and finally brightened.

The notorious "feathers" help not only to mask the gray hair that appears, but also make your appearance brighter and more interesting, and without any complicated hairdressing tricks. Lightened a few strands - and her face lit up. By the way, 90% of models never resort to radical hair coloring, but prefer only highlighting. This, firstly, revives the appearance, secondly, allows you to keep your hair in good condition, and thirdly, the photographers say that the streaked strands look very nice in the light of spotlights.

If you follow the example of those for whom to be beautiful - this is part of the profession, you need to know that there are cases when any serious master will refuse to color your hair:

If your hair has recently been dyed or permed, you risk getting completely insane colors that have nothing to do with the planned shades.

If you dyed your hair with henna, you can also forget about highlighting for a long time. The fact is that henna is a natural dye, and it is very poorly combined with chemical agents. Of course, orange-colored strands can sometimes look attractive. But, you see, not always. Henna is a "serious" dye and has the ability to penetrate deep into the hair. It is not washed off, but only dims over time. Get rid of it completely only with help. scissors.

If your hair is in poor condition, highlighting will only emphasize their shortcomings. In this case, it is best to first treat the hair.

There are several techniques of highlighting. However, the essence of the transformations that occur in the hair, one. Color change occurs as with normal hair dye under the influence of water, hydrogen peroxide and heat. New technologies allow to achieve the effect of hair lightening by 3-4 tones without the participation of hydrogen peroxide.

Two main ways of highlighting hair: using a special cap and a hook or foil. The first is ideal for owners of short hair or hair of medium length. With long hair, you will be offered to smooth the hair with foil. This staining method was invented relatively recently. Now almost in any salon you will be offered several types of highlighting. Here everything is important: natural hair color, their structure, length, condition.

1.2 Bleaching agents

Among hairdressers bleaching and lightening drugs are called dyes I - th group. The following operations can be performed with such dyes: lightening hair - changing hair color by 1 - 2 tones, for example, from dark blonde to light brown, bleaching hair - complete destruction (dissolution) of hair pigment, resulting in hair becoming blond in color dyeing - dressing gray hair and dark hair for the further use of light chemical dyes.

Before applying a lightening or blonding compound, a skin sensitivity test should be carried out, which is carried out in the same way as when dyeing with chemical dyes.

All dyes I - and groups are applied to dry dirty hair on the same technology as chemical dyes. The warming cap is not used. The exposure time of the composition on the hair depends on the desired color or the desired degree of clarification. Typically, the exposure time does not exceed 50 minutes. If you overdo the composition, the hair can simply be burned.

When using clarifying or blonding drugs, the following rules should be followed:

- the hair roots are lightened faster than the ends, due to the heat that comes from the skin. Therefore, if the hair is dyed for the first time, the coloring composition is first applied along the entire length of the hair, retreating 2 to 3 cm from the roots, and then after 10 to 15 minutes already on the roots themselves.

- for dyeing regrown roots, the composition is applied first for 10 - 15 minutes to the roots, and then it is scratched along the length of the hair. Accordingly, for the staining of the roots is taken half the norm.

- if the hair was previously permed or dyed with chemical dyes in bright colors, the composition is first applied to the roots, and after 10-15 minutes it is applied along the entire length of the hair.

If the bleaching or lightening of the hair will be performed as a self-coloring, i.e. without further use of chemical dyes, here it should be borne in mind that natural-blonde hair or hair having any degree of lightness of light brown (light brown, blond, dark brown), but having an ashy tint is best brightened. Naturally brown, red or brown hair after performing an operation acquires an ugly dirty-yellow color that disappears after using light dyes with a golden or natural shade.

Naturally black hair becomes brown under the effect of a brightener; to restore shine, such hair is dyed with chestnut shades or light brown colors with a golden hue. Naturally golden-brown hair after lightening gets a slightly yellowish tint, which is quite easily clogged with dyes of blond color with an ashy tint.

After the time of dyeing, the composition is washed off with a large amount of water with shampoo, then the hair is treated with a balm or conditioner (if no further dyeing is done).

The compositions used for lightening and blonding hair

Hair lightening can be performed with a preparation consisting of three components: hydroponic, shampoo, water. The concentration of hydroperit depends on the hair group: for hair of the I group, 12% is used, for II - 9%, for III and IV - 6%. The total amount of lightening composition is 60 g., 10 g. of which is shampoo. Accordingly, the composition is prepared according to the existing table ("What you should know when dyeing hair"), only takes into account that the amount of water should be 50 grams. + 10 gr. any shampoo.

Preparation of composition: 60 gr. perhydrol of the desired concentration + 30 gr. powder Blondoran - supra. The prepared composition is applied with a brush. The exposure time of the composition on the hair is 15 - 50 minutes.

For the above-listed blonding drugs, you can use the creamy perhydrol "Oxisoft", which has 6, 9 and 12% concentration. It is a creamy emulsion that contains biological softeners and extracts of plant origin.

As a clarifier, you can use a series of "Blondie" ("Ro'Color"), which, lightening the hair, makes them more attractive due to natural shades.

"Blond Suprem" (series "Excellence - cream" from "L'Oreal") - a novelty that lightens hair with 3 - 4 tones (from dark blonde to light blonde) and at the same time gives the hair beautiful shades. The brightener does not dry or burn through the hair, but provides protection throughout the dyeing process.

Lightening and blonding should not be performed for those who have increased skin sensitivity, allergic diseases, inflammatory diseases, as well as for women whose hair has previously been dyed with chemical dyes that have red, orange or purple hue, henna or basma. Hair, subjected to chemical perm, it is recommended to lighten no earlier than two weeks.


Currently, there is a huge number of not only varieties of highlighting, but also a technique for its implementation. The most popular ways:

Highlighting by hand - paint is applied to clean, laid hair with your hands or with a thin brush. One of the options is frost. Suitable for curly hair. They are pre-washed and dried with their heads bent down. Next, the master hands rubbing paint in the hair, slightly massaging them.

Highlighting through the cap is considered a classic. It is also called "highlighting feathers." Although highlighting on foil and feathers - differ only in Russian. In English, this all has one name - highlights. That is, roughly speaking, both are feathers and the other, the only difference is in the technique of execution.

Through the cap it is better to do highlights only on short thin hair. The strands will be thin and will simply shade the already blond hair, but the overall color will be lighter on the tone and volume will be created, it is recommended for blondes.

The method is suitable for short hair, as long and medium hair is simply confused.

1. To start the hair should be combed.

2. Then put on a cap for highlighting. Strands are pierced through the holes with a special hook. - one strand in one of every three holes (for the refinement of the hairstyle), - one strand in one of every two holes (the result will be more natural), - one strand in each hole (the original effect). 3. Strand through the holes combed again. 4. Now you can proceed directly to the staining. Using a brush to apply the coloring composition on the hair. Coloring begins with the upper strand, and ends lateral and rear. 5. The average paint time is 30 minutes. 6. After the paint has worked, the painted strands are rinsed. Moreover, the cap still remains on the head until the water flowing from the hair becomes absolutely clean.

Then the whole head is washed and treated with hair conditioner. Re-staining:

Strands are not re-painted. Only roots become discolored (as they grow). 5 minutes before the end of the effect of the composition, it is neatly distributed throughout the whole strand so that the color is even and without transitions.

American colors If you are the owner of very dark or long hair, then you should choose the highlighting technology American colors (American highlighting). Its name is explained by the fact that the idea of ​​highlighting using foil was born in America. Today it is one of the most popular technologies in the United States and in Europe.

The essence of american colors is to create highlights in the hair, which gives them a lively and natural look and visually increases the volume of hair. This is achieved by using from 2 to 4 shades of paint, of course, not spontaneously, but in full accordance with professional experience, color theory and intuition. If you want to get a more natural hair color, you need to use colors similar in tone. If you are a more extravagant persona, the tones should be contrasted.

A variation of american colors - red highlighting. Primary colors are shades of red. In the salons such a technique of coloring is often called "Paints of the Wild." This is a rather complicated coloring, for which from three to five juicy and saturated shades are mixed. The result - exceeds all expectations. Highlighting looks fresh, even after a long time (1-1.5 months) after staining. Fits exclusively brunettes and brown-haired women. There are a great many technologies of American highlighting.

Here is one of the options. It will take: paint a few shades close to each other, hairdressing clips, colored foil, hairdressing brushes. Multi-colored foil will allow you to alternate colors correctly - each color of the foil will correspond to a certain tone of paint, so as not to get confused.

1. Begin the highlighting procedure with staining of the occipital zone (the temperature of the head on the back of the head is much lower than on the other zones of the head, so the paint will act more slowly). Paint over the occipital zone with a paint of the same color that is closest to natural.

2. Paint is applied to each strand, then it is covered with foil.

3. Next, paint over the side strands and strands on the temples, using the "primary color", and then apply alternately paint of other shades.

4. Alternating shades of paint, they reach the point of intersection of the upper occipital zone with the crown.

5. Paint over the other side of the head in the same way. 6. Finish the highlighting of the color of the temporal and upper occipital zones. Hair on top of the head partly divided.

7. Alternately paint both sides, starting with the "primary" color and ending with it, while placing the foil at an angle from the face.

8. After the time of staining, remove the foil and wash off the paint. It is worth mentioning once again that American highlighting looks great on dark hair of any length; on blondes, strands painted in this way will create a slightly sloppy look. And one more very important point. This is not the case when it is worth deciding on an experiment at home or trusting a friend. This type of highlighting is quite a complex and creative process, and not every master will undertake it.

Coloring on the French technology - "Mazhimesh." This technique is perhaps the most gentle way to brighten the strands, since the process uses creamy paints with the addition of wax and without ammonia. Hair is lightened by only 3-4 tones and for this reason it is best suited to owners of light and light blond hair. On darker hairs, the effect is almost invisible.

"Balayazh" A great option for short dark hair with a graduated haircut. Only the tips of the hair are painted. It is possible to color only the bang, which will give the hairstyle contrast and extravagance.

You can also make a balayaz like this: make hair on your hair, then paint them, which will result in an interesting and unusual look - light hair ends with a smooth transition of shades.

Also, the hair can be lightened with a kind of "veil" - the effect is achieved by clearly distributed rays of various shades.

The head is divided by vertical partings, the hair is strongly combed and dyed in different tones.

Coloring technology "Duet", I mean, in two tones.

The head is divided into circular zones and each zone is colored alternating in different tones. Suitable for cascading and graded haircuts for medium length hair.

Highlighting the comb - a brightening compound is applied to the comb, then it is carried over the surface of the hair. Suitable for all kinds of hair. highlighting "From the hand" - we apply with hands hands the clarifying structure. "Glazing" - used for short hair. A fixing mousse is applied to the hair for styling, then it is dried, with its head down. Coloring composition is distributed over the tips of the hair with the fingers. It is kept for a certain time (depending on the type of hair), then the procedure of applying the paint is repeated three to four times.

"Frost" - suitable for curly hair, creates an optical volume of hair. Hair slightly moistened, dried head down. The fingertips dye composition gently applied to the hair, without massaging them while not combing.

You can highlight stripes and laces. To do this, lay out a strand on a piece of foil and apply a solution on it with a flat brush, cover the entire remaining length of the foil and leave it on the hair for a few minutes, then wash off the paint, rinse the hair with shampoo and rinse with decoction or herbal infusion.

Another one of the highlighting techniques is highlighting in a circle. To do this, cut a circle in the center of which to make a hole into which you need to stretch the hair. Strands spread out in a circle. Apply the composition to the hair with a brush, cover with foil. After some time, the hair should be washed and then rinsed with a neutralizing herbal tincture.

2.2 Highlighting comb

Highlighting comb - paint is applied comb (non-metallic), which has rare teeth. The master conducts the comb from front to back through the straightening zone, which allows you to evenly distribute the mixture over the entire hair length. Then the same movements of the comb are repeated on the new section, now without affecting the dyed hair. Professional highlighting comb allows you to get exactly painted, very beautiful hair.

Hairbrush - the most necessary and common tool of the hairdresser, without it you can not perform a single operation for hair treatment. The comb consists of a butt and teeth. Combs vary in length, width and frequency of teeth. Wide combs are used when working with wide strands of hair, small combs are used when working with small strands or when performing very short haircuts. Frequent positioning of the teeth causes a strong tension of the hair, which is not the case with the rarer arrangement of the teeth.

According to the material from which the combs are made, they can be divided into 4 main types:

Metal combs are made of aluminum alloys. Metal combs are resistant to high temperatures, which is very important when hot curling hair (that is, using electric forceps).

Metal combs are not recommended for use in perm and hair coloring, as the drugs used in this process interact with metal oxides. As a result, the part of the drug that reacted with the metal oxide will not be able to affect the hair. The composition for curling becomes weaker.

When combing wet hair, metallic combs damage their outer scaly layer; as a result, the hair becomes fragile, brittle and stratified into two or more parts.

Since the master most often works with wet hair, and constantly uses chemicals, metal combs are not used in the hairdressing practice.

Wooden combs are harmless to hair, but they are used for combing only at home.

Bone combs are very expensive and most often come in the form of decorative elements: as combs and various clips.

Plastic combs are the most common type of tool to date. They differ in quality plastics. All hairbrushes used for hairdressing should be made of high-quality plastics with antistatic properties, in addition, they should be flexible and durable.

Currently widely used comb of silicone, characterized by special strength and safety.

The combs used in hairdressing are always smooth, do not slip in the hand, have pronounced angles, and regular ones slide in the hand, have an oval shape and magnetize the hair during the combing process.

By appointment, all combs are divided into five main types:

Combs with a uniform arrangement of teeth.

Combs with a pointed handle.

Combs with an ordinary pen.

Combing combs on the work surface, of which half are rare and half are frequent teeth. It can be used both in the female hall and the male. The shape of the combined combs is cone-shaped, with frequent teeth located on the narrower part of the cone.Combination comb is universal, it is used when combing, cutting, cold and hot styling, when combing and tupirovanie hair.

On the working surface there are only frequent or rare teeth used in the male and female halls. These combs are used when combing and cutting hair.

Designed for dividing the hair into strands when winding on curlers and bobbins. Combs are also convenient when styling hair, i.e. These hairbrushes give final shape to the hairstyle. Use these combs only in female halls. The teeth of the comb can be frequent or alternate in shape to the length of the teeth short, long. These combs can not be used for cutting hair.

Combs with an ordinary pen

There are two types:

for coloring and hair treatment (Fig. 1, d)

for laying "fork" (Fig. 1, d)

Comb teeth are rare. Used in male and female halls.

Fig. 1 - Types of combs: a - combined, b - with a uniform arrangement of teeth, c - with a pointed handle (tails), d - with an ordinary handle, d - a comb-fork

Used to massage the scalp, combing and styling hair. They may have plastic, metallic or bristled teeth.

Brushes made of natural bristles are more professional, because They better pull the hair during styling.

Brushes come in two forms:

Flat brushes are used to massage the scalp and hair styling. At the ends of their teeth should be balls that protect the scalp from scratching. Flat brushes raise hair at the roots during styling. Blow-dry using a flat brush - “Bomb”.

Fig. 2 - Flat brushes

Round brushes are used only for hair styling. With the help of these brushes hair is shaped. Hair dryer with a round brush - brushing.

Fig. 3 - Round brush "brushing"

It is desirable that all brushes have a sufficiently stiff bristle and a hollow base for the free passage of air. The length of the teeth of the brush should not be the same, the first teeth should be long, the second short.

The new developments include combos “flatoper”, “stripper”.

Combs with a "flopopper" level are made exclusively from plastic. They have a spade shape. In the middle of the butt, whose width is about 1 cm, there is a hole. There is a glass sealed cone with two marks in the middle, in which liquid is poured, not completely, so that there is room for air bubbles, which shows the angle at which the comb is located relative to the floor. From the butt go handle and teeth, whose length ranges from 8 to 10 cm. Mostly these combs are used in the men's room, especially for haircuts "beaver" and "ground". A comb is brought to the roots of the hair and lifted, leaving the hair of the desired length from the bottom. At the same time it is important that the bubble be at the right level strictly in the middle of the two marks. After that, the remaining hair on its surface is sheared with scissors or a machine.

Fig. 4 - Hairbrush with the level of "floper"

A variety of combs for hair coloring is a stripper comb. With the help of this type of comb you can perform highlighting and coloring. Convenient to perform dyeing on hair length 25-30cm. "Stripper" has a special nozzle, rectangular shape with several holes. When combining it with the comb, the holes clearly coincide with the distance between the teeth, so that when applying the dye to this nozzle it is located on the teeth of the comb itself through a certain distance. Then a comb of hair is combed through. The teeth are positioned so that the strand is enveloped in dye and tightly compressed, which eliminates the possibility of staining the next strand.

Fig. 5 - Comb for hair dye "stripper"

Comb for highlighting and coloring. Using this comb, we highlight and color with special paper or foil. The teeth that are bent at the ends by a triangle depart from the central axis of the hairbrush in different directions, which allows them to hook hair strands. A comb can have up to four rows of teeth. Each row has a different distance between the teeth (from 3 to 10mm). Depending on what result is necessary to get, a certain number of teeth is used.

The selected strand of hair is perpendicular to the head, then the teeth of a certain row of the comb are inserted perpendicularly to it and raised, pulling the strands intended for dyeing, at the same distance from each other. Next, the main strand is released, and the strands intended for dyeing remain raised.

Putting a special paper or foil under these strands, they are applied a dye. Such an operation is performed over the entire head or partially in some of its zones.

Receptions hold comb:

A comb has five basic and three auxiliary holding techniques.

hair highlighting comb

Highlight "Salt and Pepper"

The novelty and hit of the season is the highlighting of “Salt and pepper”, the main criterion of which is very frequent staining of the strands, followed by toning them in ashy shades. This kind of highlighting is undoubtedly suitable only for the most courageous, fashionable and creative individuals who are not afraid to look older than their present age.

Examples of partial highlighting

The technology of partial highlighting is to dye individual strands in only one part of the hairstyle, as a rule, in the facial area. Only the top layer of hair is affected, which contributes to the creation of an intriguing contrast between dark hair and light strands. With a clear contrast hairstyle will acquire a bold, and even avant-garde style.

By placing the light strands asymmetrically, you can make an additional emphasis on fashionable haircut. Partial highlighting is ideal for dark-haired girls who want to slightly refresh their image without changing it radically.

Examples of contrast highlighting

Due to the color contrast and different widths of the strands, with this method of dyeing, the hairstyle looks volume and bright. Striped highlights are gaining popularity again. Contrast highlighting with the use of wide strands of light shades is very common. It looks spectacular in combination with dark and dark brown hair, with light looks rough and sloppy.

The width of the strands for coloring is selected individually. In this case, the highlighting technique itself can be both classical, and partial, and zonal, and asymmetric. For the color of the strands, one or two colors are used. To achieve the maximum contrast effect, toning after dyeing is not performed.

Examples of California highlighting

The main feature of this type of highlighting is a smooth transition from very dark roots to the lightest ends of the hair. In fact, this is one of the varieties of gentle shading "Shatush", for which the foil is not used. Part of the zone at the roots can be both quite wide and very small. Stylists assure that this type of coloring will be a hit of the 2012-2013 season.

To process the strands, brighter and more saturated colors are taken, it is also possible to combine several colors of a light palette. In addition to wheat, white and ashy, coffee, nut, cognac, honey and beige shades are used.

Examples of American highlighting

At the moment there are many technologies of this type of dyeing, the essence of which lies in creating glares in the hair, giving them a visual volume and the most natural look. This can be achieved by using several shades at once, but not more than 4 colors at a time.

Initially, American highlighting was predominantly done in red as well as red. This technology is suitable only for those who have dark hair.

To create a hair that is close to natural color, you should apply dyes that are most suitable for your natural hair tone. Extravagant same person can advise to use more contrast.

Diagonal highlighting examples

This technology is used in cases when I want to emphasize the expressiveness of nature given to hair color. The colors used for this are not flashy, but, nevertheless, quite contrasting. Partings, unlike other types of coloring, are divided vertically or even at an angle. Diagonal highlighting can be monochrome, which looks especially stylish and unusual. Thin or fairly wide white locks are made on a black background. To give the same hair the most natural, this type of dyeing can be done in pastel colors. Girls wishing to stand out from the general mass of people due to their bright creative image can be advised to resort to avant-garde color staining with a diagonal highlighting technique.

Examples of creative highlighting

The technique of creative highlighting is very similar to coloring, the general task of which is to highlight fashionable hair color against the background of the main one as clearly as possible. For example, if the natural color is black or dark, then bright saturated colors are taken for highlighting loops: blue, purple, red, yellow. When the base is bright, in this case creative highlighting implies the use of such shades as coral, lilac, pink, ash-blue.

Examples of avant-garde highlighting

Such a specific, well-formed concept as avant-garde highlighting does not yet exist, and this is probably something from the category of personal ideas about style and taste, as well as a creative approach to all of its image. Fashionable avant-garde trends are always very quickly replace each other. For example, today's new product is color partial highlighting, and only the upper or lower part of the hair is colored in the most fashionable colors. Avant-garde highlighting looks very impressive and creative, for which several different contrast and bright colors are used.

Any modern woman wants to always look stylish, fashionable and spectacular. With the help of monochromatic hair color, which most often looks dull and uninteresting. With the help of the highlighting procedure, you can make the image brighter, and without radically changing your image. Highlighting will help to visually increase the volume of hair, give a face freshness and emphasize the dignity. Before you decide on highlighting, you should consult with a professional who will assess the color and condition of the hair and select the most appropriate shade and method of dyeing.

Highlighting comb - the mixture is applied using a comb (non-metallic) with rare teeth. In the area of ​​lightening hair movement from front to back is held comb, evenly distributing the mixture from root to tip of the hair. Trying not to touch the already painted hair, repeat the movement of the comb on a new section. The result is very beautiful, evenly colored hair.

Highlighting from the hand - the brightener is applied by hand or brush to paint on clean stacked hair. This technology provides for two types of highlighting:

Frost - this method of highlighting is designed for wavy hair. This technology not only brightens the curls, but also emphasizes the volume of hair. As a rule, to achieve the correct result, it is necessary to follow the technique of the procedure. First you need to wet your hair, then lower your head down to dry them. Next, without massaging, apply gently to the hair coloring composition with the help of fingers.

Glazing - this mode of highlighting is designed for short hair, no longer than 12-15 cm. A mousse is applied to the hair to fix the hairstyle, and, with the head down, it dries. The mixture for highlighting is applied with a brush on the fingers of the hands, and then distributed with the fingers evenly over the tips of the hair. The procedure is repeated 3-4 times, between them a certain period of time is maintained, corresponding to each type of hair.

Highlighting with a cap is a classic way, which is also called “feathers”. This method is recommended for highlighting thin short hair. The result is thin strands, beautifully shading blond hair. So, first you need to comb your hair well and wear a highlighting cap. With the help of a special hook, we pass the strands through the holes. Pulling strands into each hole gives the original effect. Comb the elongated strands before dyeing. Coloring composition is applied to the hair with a brush. Coloring start with the upper strands, ending with the side and rear. Paint exposure time averages 30 minutes. After dyeing, without removing the cap, rinse the strands until the washed water is completely clean. Then take off the cap and rinse the head well. Conditioner is applied to clean hair - now you can enjoy the shine of your hair.

Highlighting with foil is a method invented by Americans. Over the years, the use of multi-colored foil proves its effectiveness. The essence of the method: individual strands, pre-painted by the dye composition, are wrapped in foil. This is the most secure method of highlighting is ideal for long hair.

Highlighting has several advantages over hair dyeing in one color:

Revitalizing hair, thanks to color transitions.

Update the image without a fundamental change in color.

Rare embellishment of the roots, only 2-3 times a year, depending on the length of the hair.

With a properly chosen method of coloring is suitable for absolutely all women without exception.

Hair color and hairstyle

Most often, male highlighting for short hair is popular today, since short hair is the standard hairstyle of most men. But on the whole, hairdressers and colorists note that absolutely any variants of hairstyles with short, medium and maximum hair length are suitable for dyeing hair according to the technique of highlighting. But for highlighting to be low-key and not defiant, the optimal hair length should be from 2 cm.

If it is assumed that the hair length is more than average, the specialist selects the closest shades of paint to the native hair color. But for short haircuts often prefer bright and diverse colors of paint to create a stylish image, rather than purely natural shades. It is necessary to choose a palette of colors, only considering the native hair color and its predisposition to dyeing.

Highlighting with light brown hair accepts the following color palette:

  • milk chocolate,
  • chestnut,
  • honey
  • coffee with milk,
  • wheat,
  • caramel,
  • Brown color.

Thanks to the use of colors from this palette, a man’s light and blond hair can play with new colors, become saturated and many-sided. But for highlighting on dark hair it is better to give preference to brandy or copper, caramel or coffee, chestnut or chocolate color. They will saturate the hair with additional shades, give the native color depth and overflow.

What men are suitable highlighting

Most often, highlighting is preferred by those men who wish to change the shade of hair in a non-cardinal way so that the new hairstyle does not catch the eye, causing a resonance from others. And if women prefer to add another cardinally to their native shade of hair, to create a striking contrast, men appreciate the highlight that shimmers with native hair.

Today, experts offer several types of highlighting:

  1. Toning - the technique helps to focus on any part of the hairstyle, and best suits short haircuts with bangs.
  2. Color highlighting - in the course of dyeing, several colors of paint are used, but the shades select as close as possible to the native color. Such coloring is suitable for hairstyles of medium length and more.
  3. Thrash - American method of dyeing "free hand" when the tips of the strands are painted in a chaotic way. Suitable for medium length haircuts with bangs.
  4. Balayazh - painting the ends of the strands in several colors combined, you can use contrasting shades. This technique is suitable for young guys with short haircuts.
  5. Standard highlighting - coloring alternate strands, due to which the shade of hair changes, but not all hairs suffer. Best of all this coloring is suitable for men with gray hair.

Highlighting is suitable for any man with light or dark hair, and men's haircuts with highlighting can be of different shapes and lengths. Men of solid age with the help of highlighting can camouflage gray hair, as well as refresh and rejuvenate your face with the correctly chosen paint color. With the help of highlighting, young men will saturate their native hair color with depth and brightness.

Photo gallery of various types with highlighting

To make sure that highlighting can change the image of a man, hide flaws and emphasize the depth of the native hair color, it is enough to look at photos of men with straightened strands.

The complexity of the procedure

In general, the highlighting procedure is performed in two ways - either with a brush and foil, or thanks to a special cap with holes for the strands. The first case is widely used by masters and colorists, when hair strands are laid out on a foil, they are painted over with a paint brush, and then the foil is sealed. As soon as the necessary amount of time has passed, the foil is removed and the paint is washed off under running water.

Cap with slots often used for melirovki hair at home. To do this, put a hat on clean and dry hair, then with the help of a crochet hook, we get strands on which the paint is applied. As required by the instruction, the paint is kept on the hair, the cap is removed, the paint is washed off and the accompanying procedures are carried out.

Advantages and disadvantages in the care

Mostly, the male melirovanny hair does not need special care, except for standard procedures of cleansing and moisturizing with conditioner or balms. Most often, men dye their hair at the tips, so as not to create a visible contrast between the shades of hair, and also because men's hair is not stained in the root part.

The advantages of dyeing techniques for men’s hair include:

  • the possibility of a soft and discreet change of image
  • gentle way to dye hair,
  • stylish and fashionable hairstyle
  • bleached hair ends rejuvenate and improve the tone of the face,
  • hairstyle will help hide gray hair and rejuvenate the appearance of a man.

In the care, the hair will need some time to use non-sulphate shampoos that will not wash out the dye pigment from the hair. As a rule, such care products will cost a little more than usual shampoos. In parallel with this, a balm and conditioner should be applied to the hair in order to easily comb the hair and moisturize the strands that have suffered from contact with the paint.

Any standard and new-fangled male haircuts with highlighting will look stylish and bright, but at the same time do not shock the environment of the man with his originality. Experts believe that highlighting is a coloring technique that is ideal for both women and men. It allows you to maintain the health and condition of the hair after contact with the paint, but to change the image and rejuvenate any man. In addition, this coloring perfectly with all types of men's haircuts.
