Babylights Hair Trend

Get the latest Babylights hair colour at Fresh Lifestyle hair salons in Blackheath, Fitzrovia and Islington

Unhappy with flat, one-dimensional hair and want subtle, natural colour this Summer that’s easy to maintain? Treat your locks to babylights, the hot new trend that’s taking the hair industry by storm at Fresh Lifestyle hair salons.

What are babylights?

Babylights is a new hair colouring technique that gives you super-thin highlights. No more chunky, solid blocks of colored hair,  think instead of the delicate highlights we often see on childrens’ hair. The babylights technique mimics just that. The result is beautiful, radiant hair that looks oh so natural.

Get the right hair colour for your skin tone

Babylights can be done in any hair colour to match any skin tone, so brunettes and redheads can benefit as much as blonds from this technique and have highlights that are matched perfectly to their hair and skin tone. Even better, babylights suit all hair lengths and types from long,  short, straight, curly and everything in between. The end goal with this new way of colouring is to make sure your hair colour compliments your skin tone for a natural look. Make sure you ask your colour technician about the right shades for your hair. If you have olive or dark skin tones, we might suggest golden or honey tones, while blondes could take cool platinum babylights or creamy yellow tones.

So, how does it work?

The application process is much like getting regular highlights but can take longer because of the precise placement of the colour.  Your colourist will take tiny stands of hair and leave small gaps between foils to perfectly blend your babylights with your main hair colour. You can have babylights to simply frame your face or they can be blended across your whole head using very fine pieces of hair.

How do I maintain the look?

One of the best benefits of this trend is that it’s so low-maintenance. So if you hate getting your roots done regularly, this is definitely the colour trend for you. The highlights are so fine you avoid getting the heavy demarcation line as your hair grows and you’ll have a softer grow out that stays looking natural. To keep your hair looking it’s very best, you’ll still want a full head of babylights to be touched up by your Fresh LIfestyle colourist every eight weeks, and strands here and there touched up every 12-14 weeks for a really long-lasting colour.
