What are my options when booking blonde highlights?

At Wisteria Avenue, we offer a diverse array of options when it comes to blonde highlights. From traditional foiling, freehand, babylights or a scatter of foils you’ll find a spectrum of techniques available. These techniques allow for different looks based on your preferences, desired level of brightness, maintenance considerations, and the overall aesthetic you wish to achieve. Our expert stylists, through thorough consultations, guide you in selecting the most suitable highlighting technique that aligns perfectly with your individual style, hair texture, and desired outcome. Whether you’re seeking a subtle enhancement or a more dramatic change, our range of options ensures that your blonde highlights are tailored precisely to your liking.

Why are blonde highlights so popular?

The popularity of blonde highlights stems from their transformative qualities. Blonde highlights are not just about lightening the hair; they offer depth, dimension, and a radiant brightness that can truly elevate your appearance from a flat colour to one that draws attention to sun-kissed hair. Highlightshave the remarkable ability to complement various skin tones and hairstyles, creating a natural, sun-kissed effect that exudes a fresh and vibrant look. Their versatility allows for a spectrum of styles, from the subtle and low-maintenance to the bold and high-impact. Whether you’re after soft, natural-looking highlights or more striking and noticeable contrasts, blonde highlights cater to a wide range of preferences, making them a popular choice among individuals seeking a luminous and refreshed look.

The other side benefit is when lightening hair, toners offer the scope to dramatically change the overall colour of hair quickly. As a rule of thumb, whilst toners won’t address any regrowth they are able to reintroduce warmth at a later stage. So if it’s approaching winter and you’re on a budget, you can replenish your hair in under 20 minutes with the application of a toner. It’s quick, efficient and cheap!

What is the difference between blonde highlights and balayage?

Blonde highlights and balayage are distinct techniques employed to achieve different effects on the hair. Blonde highlights typically involve using uniformed foils exclusively from the root area. On the contrary, balayage is a technique applying lighter pieces below the root line, closer to the top of the ear in a more natural way to create a sun-kissed effect.

Balayage achieves a softer and more blended transition between shades, offering a subtle and more natural-looking result compared to the uniformity of traditional highlights. While both techniques aim to add dimension and brightness, their application methods and the resulting effects differ significantly.

Are blonde highlights right for me?

Determining the suitability of blonde highlights for you involves considering various factors, including your natural base hair colour, skin tone, desired level of maintenance, and lifestyle. At Wisteria Avenue, our consultations are designed to meticulously evaluate these factors. We take into account your personal preferences, facial features, and lifestyle considerations to recommend the most suitable blonde highlights that perfectly complement your unique attributes and preferences. Whether you’re looking for a soft, sun-kissed look or a more dramatic and defined appearance, our stylists ensure that your blonde highlights blend with your natural beauty, ensuring a flattering look that suits you.

What do blonde highlights do to my hair?

Blonde highlights serve to add brightness, dimension, and movement to your hair. Achieved by lightening specific sections of the hair, they create contrast and depth, resulting in a multidimensional and vibrant appearance. By strategically placing highlights, our stylists accentuate your natural features and provide texture and depth to your hair. However, it’s essential to note that the lightening process involved in blonde highlights may require regular maintenance and care to preserve the health of your hair and manage potential dryness or damage. Regular touch-ups every 2-3 months and appropriate haircare routines are essential to maintain the desired look and ensure the health and vitality of your hair.

What is the downside to blonde highlights?

Despite their stunning results, blonde highlights come with considerations that might be considered downsides. Blonde highlights may require regular maintenance than say, balayage to prevent noticeable root growth. This frequent upkeep may contribute to increased maintenance costs.

Some clients may also highlight the hair too frequently. This may cause dryness or damage to the hair if not adequately cared for, requiring additional attention and care to maintain hair health.

How much do blonde highlights cost?

The pricing for blonde highlights is usually influenced by the salon’s location, the skill level of your stylists, the intricacy of the selected technique, and the extent of highlighting required. Highlights in Abingdon tend to start from around £120 and the most expensive being £250+. Oxford prices tend to be higher, however the average bill for highlights at Wisteria Avenue in 2023 was £135. 

To obtain a precise cost estimate tailored to your specific preferences and hair needs, we encourage you to schedule a consultation with us. During this session, our experienced stylists will evaluate your desired look and provide a comprehensive breakdown of costs, ensuring a bespoke and transparent pricing aligned perfectly with your expectations and budget.

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.
