ALL OVER COLOR:   This process is a single tone that is applied to the root and sometimes the ends of your hair.  It is painted directly onto your scalp.

HIGHLIGHTS: This process weaves strands of hair that are then placed in foil to help conduct heat.  It can be used with colors that deposit and lift depending on the desired results.  A FULL HIGHLIGHT places highlights all over the head.  A PARTIAL HIGHLIGHT includes the "mohawk" or top section of the head and the sides, leaving the back of the head without highlights.

WHAT IS BALAYAGE?  The term is used to describe the process of painting on the hair directly.  It is used for various results, including specific placement of lightener/color and brightening the ends of the hair.

WHAT IS COLOR CORRECTION?  The technical answer is: is any time you want to take your previously colored hair 2 levels lighter or take previously colored hair or virgin hair two levels darker.  A color correction is needed anytime coloring your hair has the undesired results.  For most people this means a brassy tone or at home color that may have turned out darker than intended.  But, it can also just be a drastic change (ala Kim Kardashian)this is when a client would like to go from dark hair to light or vice versa. 

Could your dark brown hair that you've been getting colored professionally for years need to be "corrected" to get cool blonde highlights? Absolutely. Even though you've been getting desired results from your stylist for a long time, you need to know that changing things up may be more difficult than you think.

When lightening hair, color gets taken out of the hair along with proteins and can change the structural make-up of the hair.  If you need to lighten again,  you are changing the structure of the hair even more.  When you are a highlighted blonde and decide to go darker your hair may need to be "filled" so that your color lasts and does not end up a muddy tone. 

Since color correction is more complicated it usually requires more time and can be more expensive.  Most color correction cannot happen in one appointment.  It could take up to at least 4 appointments to reach your desired results and keep the integrity of the hair.  A consultation with a stylist is highly recommended if you would like to make a big change in your hair color.
