Highlights are a great thing. They do wonders in so many ways. For example: adding dimension and shine to flat and dull hair... they can make your summer tan stand out... or make your face sparkle... But most importantly they make your hair look healthy. However visits to the salon cant be quite spendy. But don't worry, there is another way... Do it yourself! Read on for the method that will work for you.
Spray-on highlights: Maybe you have heard of Sun-In? If not you can find it in any store/pharmacy. It simply stripes the color from your own hair to replace with a golden brown. This product goes for only 5.00 but if you happen to have a lemon in your fridge that will work just the same. Simple apply to wet hair while you are sitting out in the sun, and what your locks begin to glow.
Skullcap Highlights: You can buy the cap at most beauty stores. Tie to your head, and begin pulling bits of your hair through the holes in the cap. There is a special tool to do this. And this way you get to pick and choose how many and where you want your highlights. If it is the sun kissed look you are going for then only pick and choose a few highlights here and there. If you are wanting a more frosted look then you will want to add several more.
Paint-on Highlights: This is perhaps the most commonly used these days. It comes in a kit with a bristled applicator and bleaching formula. This way you get to add as little or as much bleach as you want. This kit will come with hand instructions to help you through the process.
Extensions Highlights: If you aren't interested in coloring your actual hair, this is the way for you. Hair extensions come in a variety of clip on color and lengths. So it is easy to find some that work for you. However, to receive the best effect this way it will be best you use human hair extensions, which can be quite costly.
