AirTouch Appointments in Abingdon

Technique and application of highlights can seem overwhelming. You have thick highlights, delicate highlights, more/less highlights and then there are the choice of colours to choose from!

Then you have AirTouch. AirTouch highlights are a growing trend and are far more popular than they were even five years ago. Traditional highlighting methods utilise a technique called ‘teasing’ or ‘backcombing’. In simple terms this is your technique to blend your highlights at the roots usually using a small comb which is used to achieve most types of highlights clients are accustomed to. The upside to this application is you can you achieve uniformed highlights as you would expect at most salons. AirTouch is in many ways a progression from traditional highlights. AirTouch utilises air to achieve much softer dimension, blended highlights and a seamless colour. The technique allows a Stylist to section the hair, applying tension on the longest lengths while using a hair dryer to ‘blow’ and push the shorter hair out of the way. Your desired colour or bleach is then applied with the end result leading to highlights that are next level!

What are my options when choosing AirTouch highlights?

Just as they are with any ‘normal’ highlighting appointment. For example if your typical request is three colours, babylights, thick pieces, fewer pieces or more highlights than ever before… AirTouch can be delivered no-matter your choice of colour or foil placements (what you want the foils to look like at the end). 

AirTouch very simply helps to deliver your chosen colour or foil placement much more seamlessly, more naturally and defined than your highlights might ordinarily find themselves. The results speak for themselves.

Why are AirTouch highlights so popular?

Because they look great!

They have the capability to extend the gap between appointments, they blend most colours in a natural way more than traditional highlighting applications do and clients love them! Increasingly more salons are offering AirTouch as an option and some salons go as far as offering it as the sole option for highlighting hair such are the end results.

If you seek a change, AirTouch might just be for you.

What is the difference between AirTouch Highlights and Normal Highlights?

AirTouch highlights achieve softer and more defined highlights whereas your traditional highlights achieve a less defined and soft finish. That being said, both are a form of highlights and if the goal is to achieve a certain colour or the type of highlights are more delicate, thicker, bolder, scattered etc. AirTouch or no AirTouch will still be able to achieve this.

AirTouch simply ‘improves’ your chosen type of highlights by ensuring they are blended, softer and more natural looking than before.

Are AirTouch highlights right for me?

Determining your suitability largely depends on your goals. For most clients it boils down to budget, anticipated frequency of appointment, what end result you seek and how blended you like your highlights to be.

For many, their existing highlights are straightforward and easy to maintain. For this reason it could be argued that AirTouch may not necessarily be the right appointment type. For others, if you are booking highlights less frequently, there could be a greater benefit to spending more too stretch appointments out further.

What do AirTouch highlights do to my hair?

Think your every day highlights only more seamless and much softer. 

Not only is the regrowth less noticeable (meaning fewer appointments), but the end result is much improved. The introduction of pressurised hair to ‘push’ away the smaller hairs mean that the application of colour or bleach is much more detailed and bespoke to you. The end result is the perfect highlighted hair.

What is the downside to AirTouch highlights?

AirTouch arguably offers the best end result and maintenance of any type of highlights. However if you don’t enjoy lengthy salon appointments then this service might not be for you.

The average AirTouch appointment is roughly four hours so be sure to book out sufficient time!

How much do AirTouch highlights cost?

The pricing for AirTouch highlights can differ from client to client. More so than most highlighting appointments the cost can vary based on a variety of factors. The average appointment time can expect to be 45 minutes longer on average with some appointments longer than others. For this reason the expected cost including a haircut roughly £200 per session. However this is an average, rather than an exact quote which can vary from client to client.

We strive to make booking your blonde highlights as effortless and accessible as possible, accommodating various communication preferences for your convenience.

Every blonde hair colour service, including highlights, requires both a skin test and consultation. These essential steps are designed not only to guarantee the safety of the hair coloring process but also to ensure that the chosen service aligns perfectly with your needs and preferences.

Conducting a skin test and consultation is vital as it enables us to ascertain the suitability of the chosen service for you.

Therefore, the consultation serves as a pivotal step, shedding light on the best-suited options and guiding you towards a service that will best enhance your desired look.

Additionally, we provide specialised in-salon treatments designed to support the outcome of your highlights. These treatments are focused on enhancing both the colour and condition of your hair, ensuring a beautiful and lasting result that you’ll love.

Highlights aren’t the same for every client encourage you to bring this with you to your consultation.

For example one form of highlights is babylights which are very popular. Other clients prefer chunkier pieces. Different forms of application provide different highlighting effects.

Balayages aren’t the same for every client.

We don’t expect clients to know the terminology of every type of balayage! However, pictures always help. If you have a vision in mind, we encourage you to bring this with you to your consultation.

Usually the differences between balayages don’t affect the price too much. For example, the ‘money piece’ is a popular addition right now. This is a great option yet doesn’t affect the price.

Yes!
