What is a Partial Highlight?

If you are looking to create beautiful depth and dimension in your hair in The Woodlands, TX, you are looking for a Partial Highlight at WAVES salon. This is a color enhancement that will add dimension to the sections of your hair that your stylist feels would best achieve your goals. Partial highlights are quickly becoming the choice of many because of the beautiful dimension and depth they add to your hair.

Highlights are done using foil in the sections of the client’s hair that are being lightened. This allows for precise application and isolation of the highlighted strands from the rest of the hair. Once the hair is lightened, it will be toned to a color that enhances your skin tone, existing hair color, and hair type.

Our colorists conduct comprehensive consultations to collaborate with you in achieving all your hair goals. At WAVES Salon, we’re excited to assist you in attaining your ultimate look.

How Much Does a Partial Highlight Cost in The Woodlands, TX?

The cost of your Partial Highlight at WAVES Salon in The Woodlands will depend on various factors such as the length and/or thickness of your hair, the current color of your hair, and the desired color you want to achieve. The best way to arrive at a price point is to schedule a consultation with one of our highly skilled colorists at your convenience.

How Long Does a Partial Highlight Take?

The amount of time a Partial Highlight takes in The Woodlands at WAVES Salon varies depending on your hair type. Specifically, it is affected by the length, thickness, current color of your hair, and the desired look you want to achieve.
