Did you ever go through a phase, when you couldn't stand even a slight fade to your jet black hair color? Those days, you probably thought highlights were only meant for the carefree blondes or the sun-kissed brunettes of the world. Or maybe you had a head full of highlights -- bright blonde strands scattered on top of your dark brown hair -- and wish you could transport your current colorist back to your life circa college. You know, so he could talk you out of those fake-looking streaks. Whatever your highlight history, it's time to think about revisiting them. Highlights offer the ability to switch up your hair color without getting a dramatic overhaul, and they can bring depth and life to an otherwise blasé brown or dull blonde. Plus, highlights is the new trend!

The key to great, natural-looking highlights, say experts, is knowing what shades will work best with your hair color. Here at Fine Artistik Salon, we are hair color professionals in NYC and are all about natural looking colors!

Choosing the right highlights for you.
Call and schedule your appointment with one of our color professionals today. While there isn't much risk with doing an allover color at home (which we still don't recommend doing), there's a lot more room for error with highlights -- from the thickness of the streaks to the tones and shades. Getting highlights should definitely be reserved for the salon.

Know if you look better in cool or warm tones. That's why we take our time and schedule a consultation prior to highlight your hair. A simple way to figure this out is to hold a swatch of silver (cool tone) and a swatch of gold (warm tone) against your face. Whichever looks best against your skin tone tells what type of color family you should stay in. Just make sure you do this test without makeup and with sunlight.

Decide if you're getting highlights, lowlights, or both. Highlights are shades that are lighter than the allover hair color, while lowlights are dark colors applied to lighter hair. Lowlights tend to soften a dark color while highlights bring depth.
