What should I ask for?
When booking in for highlights, first decide if you want the whole shebang, or would prefer to keep your colour a little more subtle. If you tend to mostly wear your hair down, then a half head should suffice. Kinder on both your wallet and your busy schedule (unsurprisingly, a half head takes a lot less time!), this method involves colouring just the crown of the head, leaving the lower, less visible layers of hair untouched. If you’re worried about it looking unfinished, don’t be – a good stylist will always ensure highlights frame the face and fade evenly into your natural hair, so it shouldn’t look too blocky or contrasting.
