Foils (or hi-lites/highlights) are an essential and artistic tool for the highly skilled hair color technician in Penticton. Each individual foil is placed, with varying degree of width and volume, and in a wide range of tones and shades. The result is as unique as you.
Partial foils refer to anything less than a full head of foils. It’s a very open-ended term that generally means the crown area, part-line and front hairline. They are very versatile, and the foils can be woven or sliced, or sections of hair colored randomly—whatever you desire!
Full foils create an all-over effect of highlighted hair that can be woven or sliced, depending on the effect you require. It can be as natural or as bold as you would like it. You can add in as many hair colors as you would like to create a feeling of naturalness or it can be as big as your imagination.
Ombre/Balayage Balayage is a free-form highlighting technique. Usually a powder lightener is used to paint individual strands of hair. This technique can offer a more natural look to highlighting hair by doing away with the more uniform foiling process. Balayage is the technique that is used to achieve ombre hair color.
Framing is the placement of foils around the face to add brightness or for dramatic effects to emphasis a haircut.
Lowlights are like highlights with a major exception: instead of removing color, hair color is used to add tone or depth to washed-out ends or simply to add darker strands. These lowlights add depth and variation.
A complete change of color can produce dramatic and stunning results, or it may be used just to cover grey hair, or to enliven you own natural shade with better hair color depth and shine.

Glossing is a superb way to give your hair masses of shine, and add intensity and depth to your color. This semi-permanent hair color contains beeswax and conditioners that are gentle on your hair and can be used to camouflage grey hair or add depth, sheen and vibrancy to your hair color, whether natural or already colored. Glossing will not lighten hair – it adds tone.

Changing your hair color is seldom as simple as applying a new shade over the top. If your hair has been colored before you could have different shades at the ends because of sunlight or frequent washing; there is likely to be root regrowth in your natural shade; and there could be a build-up of color on the mid-lengths that is too dark. A change of color under these circumstances means dealing with every part of the hair individually, using different shades and tones on each section.
Fixing imbalance and shade problems can be as simple as dealing with hi-lites that are too yellow or removing dark bands where color has been over-applied many times. This kind of problem is dealt with every day in our salon.
