WOODLIGHTS HIGHLIGHTS

Unlike Balayage it does not leave a degradée effect. Different tones all over the hair creating a veined wood and creating twice as much shine. It doesn’t damage hair because there is no need for heat. It gives more luminosity to the face than Balayage as you can see the effect from the root. As it grows it’s similar to Balayage, you cannot see the root because it is still diffused. If not done in months, you will get a balayage effect. It’s the best alternative to substitute traditional highlights when you want to give reflection to hair without having strong highlights.

Mechas Balayage

The word “balayage” comes from French and it refers to the natural reflection in the hair. With this definition we can understand a little what balayage highlights are.
This technique consists in applying a type of colouring that tries to imitate the reflections that appear in our hair with sunlight. Therefore, the main objective of this style is to get the most natural look as possible and try not to make the highlights too defined, but reflections, a touch of light and colour that improve our appearance.

Find out the difference between Balayage Highlights and Californian Highlights, the two major trends in what refers to highlights in the last years.

Many celebrities have followed this balayage trend, such as Jessica Biel, Chiara Ferragni or Eva Longoria. The reason for the success of this technique is that it gives the face greater luminosity and at the same time, more shine and beauty to our hair.
At first, this technique was used to sweep the colour in a way that was not as aggressive as the ones commonly used, but, eventually, it turned out to be a hairstyling trend that has been a success between fashion lovers.
Balayage are the ideal highlights to a get a natural image and cover your hair with subtle reflections similar to those we get during the summer thanks to sunrays. This technique also has the advantage of not conditioning you as much as a colour that requires a monthly maintenance. As balayage is not done from the root, maintenance is done every 2 or 3 months.

SHATUSH HIGHLIGHTS

The technique used in shatush highlights is one of the latest and most innovative one that we have at your disposal at Vanitas Espai. Its main advantage is that it allows you to show reflections in the hair, as though it had its own light. Thanks to that it’s almost impossible to distinguish the natural tone from the colouring, so it’s suitable for all those women who want to show natural and beautiful hair, without having to attend their hair salon every now and then to touch up their highlights. The other advantage of shatush highlights is that the root doesn’t show, because the reflections are applied on the root so that it lightens little by little towards the ends, in such a way that the effect that is achieved is harmonious and youthful, slightly marked.

Even though it’s common to confuse this technique with the Californian Highlights technique, the only common point consists in that both techniques propose darker roots and lighter ends, but the result is significantly different.

If you want to show beautiful, shiny and vibrant hair, like Ariadne Artiles, Rachel Bilson, Olivia Palermo or Sandra Bullock, come to Vanitas Espai and we will make it real.
