Highlighting Men's Hair at Home

Posted by HaircolorChameleon on Mon, Jun 4th, 2007
Highlighting men's hair at home? Why not? Just follow the instructions, do it eigther by yourself or a friend, it is fun and creative!

Step 1 

Purchase a home hair highlighting kit with a color only 2 to 3 shades lighter. If you have dark brown hair try a light golden brown or dark blonde color. Blondes can get a great effect with subtle highlights in a blonde two shades lighter, such as light platinum blonde.

Step 2

Since there is specific hair highlighting kits for each procedure, do consider the type of hair highlights you want. For highlights all through the hair a kit that uses a plastic highlighting cap is your best bet. For just a few highlights in the front or top of the hair a 'paint on' kit with a specialized brush works best.

Step 3

Select a room or place to work in. The bathroom is the best place to perform the highlighting. You'll want a place with good lighting, no carpet (in case of spills) and little clutter.

Step 4

Draped an old towel over your shoulders in case there is any color drips.

Step 5

Always read the directions accompanying your highlighting kit thoroughly before you start. For the best results please always follow the directions.

Step 6

Tie the cap tightly but comfortably to your head if using the cap method. Use the provided metal hook to carefully pull fine pieces of hair through the cap's holes. The traditional amount to pull through is a fine piece in every second hold in every second row for an all over highlighted effect. The smaller the section, the more it will blend with your own hair color'thicker pieces will stand out more.

Step 7

Comb your hair to your usural hair style. Decide where you'd like to have your hair highlights placed. In the front bangs or along any part is a good place to start.

Step 8

Apply the color as directed to the highlighting brush and brush the color through the areas you want highlighted. Be sure to have enough color on the brush to coat the sections of hair to be highlighted'but beware of excess color that may bleed or drip onto hair you don't want colored.

Step 9

Follow the timing directions suggested and keep the color on the full time.

Step 10

Rinse your hair thoroughly as directed to remove all the color once the processing time is completed.

Step 11

Dry your hair completely to check the color results. If there are any problems with the results consult the toll free help line of the company or seek the advice of a professional stylist.

Tips & Warnings

When choosing your highlighting kit don't try to give yourself blonde highlights if you have very dark hair. Often these kits aren't strong enough to lift that many shades of color and you'll end up with orange or brassy highlights. Drastic color changes should be left to a professional.
