Sunny Summer Highlights

When the weather is warm and the sun is shining, no look exemplifies the season quite like highlights. Whether subtle and soft with tones of caramel, or bold and blonde with platinum hues, your outlook will certainly be sunnier when you add some highlights.


For subtle color, ask your Supercuts stylist for hand-painted highlights (also called balayage), which create a natural, sun-kissed look by simply painting the lightener or color onto selected pieces of hair.


For a bolder, blonder effect, ask for all-over foils. This technique can lighten a brunette to more of a blonde hue by placing hair in foils and lifting color with lightener or color in each foil packet. The result is a more daring look, and it’s the most common highlighting technique in the salon.


If you want to try something trendier and fun, ombre may be just what you’re looking for. This look creates a gradual dark to light effect from roots to ends.
