For centuries, women have used a variety of techniques to satisfy their desire to lighten their hair. From the days of using lemons and mixtures containing honey, technology has advanced to using hair dyes and bleaches.

However even the most modern methods for creating highlights, such as targeted lightening of random strands of hair have been around for over 40 years. The original “highlight process” developed in the 60s’ used plastic caps through which locks of hair were pulled using a hooked needle and isolated for bleaching. Then the 80’s saw the introduction of the foiling method, where slices of hair were painted with bleaching mixes and folded up into strips of foil.

Whilst the highlighting process has evolved over time, today it still remains one of the most popular services requested in salons– with “Babylights” being one of the latest highlight trends that has taken salons by storm.
