What are babylights?
Babylights is a new hair colouring technique that will give you super-thin highlights. Forget the chunky, solid blocks of colored hair you’re used to, and think instead of the delicate, multi-dimensional highlights we often see on childrens’ hair. The babylights technique mimics just that and result is beautiful, radiant hair that looks natural.
Get the right hair colour for your skin tone
The great thing about Babylights is that they can be done in any hair colour to match any skin tone, so brunettes and redheads can have as much fun as blonds with this technique. Even better, babylights suit all hair types from long, short, straight, curly and everything in between. The end goal is to make sure your hair colour compliments your skin tone for a natural look. Ask our expert Colour Bar technicians about the right shades for your hair. For olive or dark skin tones, we might suggest rich golden or honey tones, while blondes could take cool platinum babylights or creamy yellow tones.
So, how does it work?
The application process is like getting regular highlights but can take longer because of the precise placement of the colour. Your colourist will take tiny strands of hair and leave small gaps between foils to perfectly blend your babylights with your main hair colour.
How do I maintain the look?
If you hate getting your roots touched up regularly, this is definitely the colour trend for you. One of the best benefits is that it’s so low-maintenance. 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 for longer. To keep your hair looking it’s very best, you’ll still want a full head of babylights to be touched up by your Smith and Smith colourist every eight weeks, and strands here and there touched up every 12-14 weeks for a really long-lasting colour.
