Get the latest Babylights hair colour at Elements Hair Salon in Bishops Stortford

Bored of flat, one-dimensional hair? Want subtle, natural colour that’s easy to maintain? Babylights is the hot new trend that’s taking the hair industry by storm.  No more chunky, dramatic highlights, today it’s all about soft, and natural colour.

Babylights is a new colouring technique that gives you ultra-thin highlights without solid blocks of colored hair. Think of the subtle, delicate highlights we often see on childrens’ hair. The babylights technique mimics just that and the result is beautiful, radiant hair that looks so natural. Elements hair salon in Bishops Stortford has the low down…

Get hair colour perfectly match to your skin tone

The great news is that babylights can be done in any hair colour to match any skin tone, so even brunettes and redheads can benefit and have highlights that are matched perfectly to their hair and skin. And even better, babylights suit all hair lengths and types from ultra straight to super curly and everything in between. The ultimate goal with this technique is to make sure your hair colour compliments your skin tone for a natural look, so ask your colour technician about the right shades for your hair. If you have olive or dark skin tones, we might suggest a rich gold or honey tone, while cool blondes could take icy platinum babylights or creamy yellow tones.

So, how does it work?

The application process is similar to getting regular highlights but it usually takes longer due to the precise placement of the colour.   Your colourist will use tiny stands of hair and small gaps between foils achieve the perfect blend with your main hair colour. You can have babylights to simply frame your face or they can be blended across your whole head using very fine pieces of hair.

How do I maintain the look?

One of the best aspects about this trend is that it’s super low-maintenance. So if you hate having to get your roots done regularly, this is the colour trend for you. The highlights are so fine you avoid getting the heavy demarcation line as your hair grows and you’ll have a softer grow out that remains looking natural. To keep your hair looking it’s very best, you’ll still want a full head of babylights to be touched up by your Elements colourist every eight weeks, and strands here and there can be touched up every 12-14 weeks for a really long-lasting colour.
