Highlights & Lowlights

Meche hi-lites or highlights are a great alternative to foil highlights and are an essential tool for the highly-skilled hair colour technician. Each Meche is individually placed in you hair, with any amount of width and volume, and in an wide range of colours, tones and shades – and the result is unique to you.

Sample meche highlights/lowlights – Up to 8 Meche are used for sample Meche and are perfect as an introduction to hair colour or as an accent in one area (i.e. a fringe or hair-parting). They can be woven or sliced, striking or subtle – depending on the effect you require. A few Meche can also brighten up your existing hair colour whether it is a natural shade or pre-coloured.

Partial or half head meche highlights/lowlights – are incredibly versatile and the Meche can be woven, sliced or whole sections of hair coloured intensely – creating the look you desire.

Full head meche highlights/lowlights – can again be woven or sliced depending on the look you require. It can be as natural or as dramatic as you would. You can add many colours to create a feeling of natural shade variation and it can be as big and bold as your imagination.

Full head foil highlights/lowlights – 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 foils as the hair will allow.

Changing Your Hair Colour & Covering Root Regrowth

A complete hair colour change can produce dramatic and striking results, or can be used just to cover grey hair, or to enliven your own shade with better colour intensity, depth and shine.

Hair colour change – is either a permanent or quasi (semi) permanent hair colour that is applied by a technician on small sections of your hair. The colour change can be in sections, slices or the full head of hair. Starting at the roots, we ensure even and total coverage to give a perfect result. Our hair colour chart offers a wide choice of colours, shades and tones.

Regrowth or roots – retouch your full-head colour that was previously applied. Not only does it cover natural colour regrowth, but it also adds new colour depth and shine so that your hair looks in perfect condition.

Fashion Hair Colour

Hair colouring application has been revolutionised over the past 5 years by new methods and technology. Below are just some of the methods Smith & Smith use to create incredible colour transformations.

The Shine – is a great way to give your hair masses of healthy shine, and add intensity and depth to your hair colour. These semi-permanent hair colours contain bee’s wax for shine and conditioners for health – and are gentle on your hair. They can be used to camouflage grey hair or add colour-depth, sheen and vitality to your hair colour, whether natural or pre-coloured. The Shine will not lighten hair – it adds tone.

Inkworks – is for the bold guy or girl that wants to be noticed. Inkworks comes in every colour of the rainbow and mixing different shades together creates eye-catching results. It is a semi-permanent hair colour that must be applied to hair that is pre-lightened.

Colour Correction & Problem Hair Colours

If you are looking for a colour correction salon in the Loughborough and Leicester are …look no further.  This is when the skilled colour associates show their depth of learning and experience.

Changing your hair colour is not as simple as applying a new shade to cover the old. If you hair has been coloured before, you are likely to have different shades at the tips through sun lightening or repeated washing, there will be root re-growth in your natural hair colour, and there may be a build-up of colourant on the mid-lengths that is possibly too dark. Under these circumstances, a change of hair colour means dealing with each part of your hair individually, using different techniques, colours and tones on each hair-section.

Hair colour imbalances or shade problems – can be as simple as correcting hi-lites that are too orange or removing dark bands where colour has been overlapped too many times. At Smith and Smith this kind of hair colour problem is dealt with each and every day .

Correcting hair colour disasters is a speciality at Smith and Smith Hair Salon in Loughborough  – and that’s why we are called hair colour experts. Normally these complex hair colour problems will require removing colour from some sections whilst adding colour to others. Our technician will analyse every part of your hair to assess the exact mix of tones and shades to recreate a great overall hair colour.
