Hair coloring is the practice of changing the color of hair. The main reasons for this practice are cosmetic (e.g., to cover gray hair, to change to a color regarded as more fashionable or desirable, or to restore the original hair color after it has been discolored by hairdressing processes or sun bleaching). Hair dyeing, which is an ancient art, involves treatment of the hair with various chemical compounds. Today, hair coloring is immensely popular, with over 75 percent of American women dyeing their hair.
Hair with blonde highlights
Hair color was traditionally applied to the hair as one overall color. The modern trend is to use several colors to produce streaks or gradations, not all work on top of a single base color. These are referred to as:
• Highlighting, where sections of hair are treated with lighteners, usually to create blonde streaks.
• Lowlighting, where sections of hair are treated with darker hair color.
• There are also newer application techniques such as ombre, where hair is dark on the crown and bit by bit becomes lighter toward the ends and splashlights, where a horizontal band of bleached hair stretches from ear to ear.
These can be applied by the following methods:
• Foiling, where pieces of foil or plastic film are used to separate off the hair to be colored; especially when applying more than one color.
• Cap, when a plastic cap is placed tight on the head and strands are pulled through with a hook.
• Balayage, tipping, or dip-dyeing, where hair color is painted directly onto sections of the hair with no foils used to keep the color contained.
All application techniques can be used with any type of color. For highlights, the hair will sometimes have to be bleached before coloring.
