Half head to full head highlights, we can offer the right colour shades to add depth and movement to your style. By perfectly placing the colour, this service will add the illusion of volume to your locks. Highlights and lowlights are an incredibly popular and effective way to add colour and dimension to your hairstyle.   At Hair by Elements Hair Salon in Bishop's Stortford, we use a foiling technique to weave or slice highlights and lowlights through your hair in as many tones and shades as you wish.  

Please Note: All foil highlight and lowlight hair colour treatments at Hair by Elements are available in permanent, semi-permanent or partial colouring options.

One of the most popular hair colour techniques in recent years is balayage.  This is a freehand hair colouring technique where highlights are painted onto the hair to give it a sun-kissed look.   

There are several variations of balayage and you may also have heard it called root stretch, babylights or ombre. 

Most clients ask for darker roots which grow lighter towards the ends (making this a low-maintenance look), but your hair transformation can be as subtle or as dramatic as you wish.  

We recommend a free consultation before any balayage service.


If you've experienced a hair colour disaster at home or elsewhere, please do not panic.  Seek professional advice as soon as possible so we can help rectify the problem.

We understand how upsetting it can be when you have a hair colour problem, so we are on hand to deliver professional advice and get your hair colour back to its best.

Below you will find some of the more common hair colour issues that people experience, plus some before and after images taken to show you what we can achieve when your hair colour has gone wrong at another salon or due to a box dye disaster.


My Hair Colour Has Gone Wrong - Should I Dye Over It?


This has got to be the most common hair dye disaster dilemma and the simple straight to the point answer is “NO!” Applying a new shade over the old one will not rectify your hair colour problem and could make it worse.

If your hair is pre-coloured or has evidence of sun lightening, repeated washing, root regrowth or a build-up of colourant (which most of us do have in some form) this affects different sections and strands of the hair.  Let one of our colour experts analyse your hair to decide the exact mix of tones and shades required to restore hair colour.

My Hair Colour Is Uneven - What Can I Do?


We are experts in improving the look of your hair when you have uneven hair colour, also known as a hair colour imbalance.  Book in for a colour consultation so we can assess your hair and work out a recovery plan.  Our colour experts will work hard to achieve, maintain or correct your hair colour so it looks even and beautiful.

Help! My Over-Bleached Hair Is Breaking


The health of your hair is paramount so we would never recommend you bleach your hair at home.  This can cause your hair to become extremely dry which will lead to splitting and breaking.

We use the best hair colour products from Goldwell and know exactly what to do and which products to use to remove unwanted colour and restore hair colour.  For any bleaching services within the salon, we would highly recommend Bondpro to be used to help strengthen and restore your hair.

If you need help with bleached hair or have any hair colour correction problem, please call Hair by Elements hairdressers in Bishop's Stortford as soon as possible so we can book you in for a complimentary consultation.

We will assess your hair, discuss the problems and explain what it will take to get your hair looking lovely again.
