Hair Colour Experts in Plymouth

The perfect way to add dimension and depth to your hair, highlights are the ideal solution for anyone seeking a fresh new look. Our team of hairdressers in Plymouth have the skills and expertise to create bold and bright or natural-looking highlights that elevate your look and take your style from ‘fine’ to ‘fabulous’!

Highlights, Lowlights & Babylights

Here at the Cutting Garden, we offer a multi-dimensional highlighting service, using a range of techniques that include:

Babylights: Babylights are ultra-fine sections of hair that have either been lifted for a lighter look or tinted to add depth to your colour. A popular choice, babylights are often placed around the face or in places where you want to achieve the most impact.

Highlights: Highlights are small sections of hair that have been dyed in a colour that’s lighter than your base shade. Whether you’re looking for a subtle look or a dramatic result, you can achieve it with this technique. No matter your hair colour, you can add dimension and movement to your locks with some highlights!

Lowlights: Lowlights are slices of hair that have been tinted to add depth to the base colour. This is typically achieved by using a colour that’s 2-3 shades darker than your base shade. This technique involves weaving the lowlights strategically through the hair, which can make hair look thicker and fuller.

As a Keune colour house, our colour technicians exclusively use their innovative permanent dyes, lightening powders and demi-permanent tints. With bold and bright shades, natural tones and pastel hues available, you can experiment with colour and create the look you’ve always dreamt of. Whether you’d like babylights, gentle lowlights or dimensional highlights, our Plymouth hairdressers can help you to achieve your hair goals!

The Highlighting Process

When you book an appointment for highlights at the Cutting Garden, our hair stylists will firstly invite you to visit for a patch test at least 48 hours before your appointment. This is a mandatory step, to ensure you don’t have an allergic reaction to the dye and must be carried out, otherwise, your colour service cannot take place.

Once the patch test has been performed, we provide our clients with a consultation. This helps us to understand your hair goals and gives us the opportunity to assess the condition, texture, length and base colour of your hair. We’ll also explain the difference between the techniques we offer, so you understand our recommendations and the difference they can make to your hair colour.
