What Are Babylights?Babylights sauntered onto the trend scene a few years back. And, due to their popularity, hair salons haven’t looked back since. Babylights are delicate highlights that create a gentle, sun-kissed look. They’re named after the soft, almost metallic highlights of a child’s hair after a summer of playing in the sun. Similar to traditional foil highlights, this look is achieved by applying a lightener to sections of your hair. The secret is to apply this lightener to incredibly fine sections of hair to create a sophisticated and dimensional look. It’s the amount of hair in each foil that creates this wildly sought-after look. Babylights are also an excellent way to try a new look for those who don’t want anything too radical. And? Bonus! The maintenance of babylights is perfect for anyone desiring a stunning and low-maintenance look.
Are Babylights For Me?Why yes! Babylights are wildly versatile and will leave your hair looking luscious, healthy, and on-trend. This technique can be added to long and short hair, fine and thick hair, blonde or dark hair. You get the drift. Bringing a photo of your desired look is groovy. But be sure to work with your Mill Pond Salon stylist to match your babylights to your skin tone. Don’t be surprised if your stylist suggests a different shade than what you came in with. This is perfectly normal and shows the commitment your stylist has to your overall look! You can do a partial or full head of babylights. And you can add them to your natural hair color, your existing blonde highlights, or your base color. Read more: 8 Stunning Types of Highlights to Ask Your Stylist For
Book Your Appointment TodayDepending on your hair length and color, you can plan on a longer appointment than traditional highlights. This is because the technique of achieving babylights occurs by sectioning teeny-tiny pieces of your hair. This process can be time-consuming. If you’re on a time crunch, discuss this with your stylist BEFORE your appointment. For a client or a stylist, there’s nothing worse than to be rushed and stressed while at the salon. But this is YOUR TIME, so make the most of it and enjoy it! Life is already hurried and stressed enough. So, allow Mill Pond Salon to be your me-time destination. You deserve it! Time is money for a stylist, so the longer the appointment (of any kind), the more it will cost.
Caring For Your BabylightsIf you’ve had highlights before, you know that they naturally fade over time. The trick here is to keep that fading at bay with proper maintenance. Although your look is sun-kissed, that doesn’t mean your hair should be in the sun all the time! There are a few simple things you can do to keep your locks looking fresh, healthy, and vibrant:
- Wear a hat when on the boat, a bike, or in the convertible
- Use conditioner under your swim cap when doing your laps at the gym
- Use a shampoo with low detergent
- Don’t wash your hair too often
- Always use the proper hairbrush for your hair type
- Pack a hydrating spray with aloe for the beach, boat, or weekend getaways
The Big PictureAs far as maintenance goes for your babylights, you can expect to refresh your look every two months. This, of course, depends on a few factors:
- How fast your hair grows
- How your babylights are maintained between appointments
- How often you wash your hair
- The products you use
