Tin is In: Highlighting with Foils
Not sure how many foils are needed? When highlighting the bang area, also known as a front accent, 5-6 foils are typical, on the top only, 10-12 foils, top and sides, 18-20, and a full head of foils can be from 16-22 foils.
When you go to Supercuts, ask for a consultation with a stylist about the look you want. Your stylist will give you suggestions on how many foils you will need to achieve your desired result. If you have a picture of a celebrity or model with highlights you like, definitely bring it with you. Visuals are always helpful.
And don't forget, you can help your new highlights last longer by using products made for color-treated hair, like Redken Color Extend Shampoo and Conditioner.
