What are my options when booking gold highlights?

When considering gold highlights, your options extend beyond a single technique. At Wisteria Avenue, we offer a spectrum of application methods tailored to your preferences and desired style. You might opt for delicate babylights, fine streaks of gold for a natural appearance. Conversely, if seeking a more striking look, chunky highlights could be the choice, creating bolder, thicker strands of gold that add depth and dimension to your hair. For those desiring a nuanced yet noticeable change, a few strategically placed highlights may be ideal, offering a subtle enhancement to your hair’s overall vibrancy. Additionally, we can craft a blend of gold highlights with other complementary shades to create a distinct look, providing versatility and uniqueness to your hairstyle. Whether aiming for a bold statement or a subtle refinement, our skilled stylists ensure a tailored approach, combining various techniques to achieve the gold highlight effect that best suits your individual style.

Gold highlights remain a favourite for their timeless appeal. These highlights possess a charm that transcends trends, making them a go-to choice for those seeking a classic yet stylish transformation. What sets gold highlights apart is their ability to add warmth and dimension, making them a great option suitable for diverse styles and preferences. This warm yet impactful choice holds a certain appeal, offering a touch of sophistication and elegance to one’s look. Embracing gold highlights isn’t just about adhering to a safe option; it’s about tapping into a style that effortlessly enhances your natural beauty. This timeless choice allows individuals to effortlessly elevate their hairstyle without compromising on elegance.

What is the difference between gold highlights and caramel highlights?

Gold highlights and caramel highlights offer distinct tonal differences, often complementing different skin tones and styling preferences. Gold highlights, a traditional and timeless choice, tend to exhibit a brighter hue that works particularly well with highlighting techniques.

Conversely, caramel highlights exude a richer tone, leaning towards a deeper golden-brown shade. While equally stunning, caramel highlights are frequently associated with balayage techniques (alongside highlights whereas gold doesn’t so commonly). This choice tends to provide a subtler contrast, creating a natural-looking transition throughout the hair.

Gold highlights often lend a more luminous and traditional appeal, while caramel highlights, commonly associated with balayage, offer a warmer, sunlit effect that beautifully complements a variety of skin tones and hair textures. Both options provide distinct, radiant transformations based on individual preferences and desired outcomes. Both are popular choices when opting for highlights.

Are gold highlights right for me?

Determining the right hair colour for your skin is straightforward: warm tones work best with warm colours, and cool tones complement cool hues. The aim is to choose a shade that accentuates your inherent features. Knowing your skin tone guides your choice of makeup and clothing colours. So, are you warm or cool-toned? Let’s find out.

Start with this

Stand near a window and examine the skin beneath your eyes in a mirror. Is it veering towards purple or blue (cool tone), or does it lean more towards yellowish or green (warm tone)?

The blush experiment

Apply pink blush on one cheek and peach on the other, slightly heavier than usual. Stand by the window and evaluate. Does the pink blush enhance pink tones (cool)? If the peach blush complements golden tones (warm), that might be your match. Observe which blush blends seamlessly with your skin—cool tones prefer pink, while warm tones lean towards peach.

Assess your skin’s response

Does your skin burn easily? If so, you’re likely a cool tone. Warm tones tend to tan easily, giving the skin a brownish hue.

A white sheet test

Drape a white sheet over your shoulders and notice how your skin contrasts against it. Blueish or pinkish tones suggest a cool tone, while yellowish or orange tints indicate warmth.

Check your wrist

Look at your wrist’s veins: blue for cool undertones, green for warm. If you see both, you might be neutral-toned.

What do gold highlights do to my hair?

Gold highlights impart warmth to your hair, serving as a fantastic choice, especially during autumn and winter seasons (warmer shades tend to work well as we edge to Chrismas. As a warmer hair colour, gold highlights tend to complement warmer complexions.

 Additionally, the warmth of gold highlights helps to offset paler skin tones, providing a healthy contrast that can enhance and brighten the overall appearance. This touch of warmth adds a nice effect to your hair, offering a stylish and flattering look all year round, especially during the warmer seasons.

What is the downside to gold highlights?

While gold highlights offer numerous benefits, there are a few considerations to bear in mind. One aspect to consider is that if not maintained, gold highlights might appear brassy or overly warm, particularly on certain hair shades or skin tones.

How much do gold highlights cost?

No more or less than any other type of highlights. The average cost at Wisteria Avenue in 2023 for highlights was £135. The average cost in Abingdon ranges from £120 – £250+.

Of course. 

The benefit to a consultation is to identify whether a service is right for you.

It’s the same for colour; if gold highlights may not work for you, there’s a better alternative or you have your own concerns, those can be addressed in a consultation.

JOICO offers a range of colour protecting/preserving options.

We cater to charging by the foil, t-section, half head and full head.

We also do back-to-back foils, face framing, chunky highlights, babylights and more!

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.
