What are BABY LIGHTS?
Well, just the latest in hair coloring trends
The latest in hair coloring that’s taking the beauty industry by storm and it’s called “babylights.
The term “Baby Lights” can be added to the current list of highlighting techniques such as splashlights, balayage, ombre and sombre, but this one differs dramatically from the rest.
Babylights are delicate highlights created using a very fine hair color technique to mimic the subtle, dimensional hair color seen on children’s hair AKA Natural hair. This creates hair color that looks fresh and natural. The result is subtle but beautiful.
“The application process is very similar to highlights, the difference is the amount of hair in each foil and the separation between. For babylights, you use just a little bit of hair and create small separations between foils so the highlights blend with the base color.
Babylights are low-maintenance: Just like the ombre hair color trend, babylights are low-maintenance. Since the highlights are so fine, as the hair grows out the overall style looks softer, more subtle, and there is no heavy line of demarcation.
Babylights can be applied to any hair color or hair type: “The process can be done in any shade to match any skin tone. While the effects on blondes are fabulous, brunettes and redheads can have fun with highlighting and babylighting as well.”
The service itself may take a bit more time than traditional highlighting. The technique requires separating hair into itsy-bitsy sections, then applying hair color to small groups of strands for more than an hour. But it is well worth it for the amazing results.
