Lowlights and highlights are the key to making a good coloring job into one that is great. Light brown lowlights in brown hair, when paired with perfect highlights, will turn your hairstyle from okay to dazzling while still making your look completely natural.
The thing to remember about low lights and highlights is that they are in your hair naturally already. When we color our hair we cover over them, blanketing our strands with one uniform color that just isn’t quite as natural as we would like. Highlights are applied to the top layers of hair to provide darker or lighter color and give volume. Low lights, however, are given to the lower layers of hair, the underneath layers, and shine through the hair to give it even more depth. Low lights pair with highlights to give your hair a completely natural glow that is totally man made. Light brown lowlights in brown hair are perfect for this.
Finding a professional hairstylist used to working with low lights and your specific hair texture and length is the key to pulling off a truly stunning look. Remember that not all hairstylists have the same comfort levels with long hair, super short hair, curly hair and fine hair. Find someone that is comfortable with what you have to offer. Then spend some time discussing color options. Even light brown lowlights in brown hair come in many different shades, so its important to find shades of light brown and brown that not only suit each other but your skin tone as well.
