Stylist applying highlights to customer's hair

What is a Full Highlight?

Highlights involve the strategic application of lightener or color isolated in foil to specific sections of the client’s hair, resulting in a sun-kissed, bright, and natural appearance. However, a Full Highlight takes this process a step further by applying it to the entire head, aiming for maximum lightening while still maintaining dimension in the hair. Following the lightening process, the hair is toned to a shade chosen in collaboration with you and your stylist. Our skilled stylists are well-trained to identify hair tones that complement a wide range of skin tones, hair colors, and hair types. At WAVES Salon in The Woodlands, TX, we are excited to be part of your journey to achieving your best look.
