1. Colour selection
For the most natural effect, the strands at the front and the tips of the hair can be coloured only one or no more than two nuances lighter than the base colour. If the contrast is too pronounced, the hairstyle looks more like two-tone or ombré hair. Our tip: it’s better to colour in stages, approaching the perfect babylight look gradually until you achieve the desired effect instead of ending up with too light of a hue. Caution: allow at least four weeks to pass between colouration sessions.
In addition to a package of the right hair colour and a special applicator brush, we recommend an old, discarded and thoroughly rinsed mascara brush for targeted application. It helps apply the colour as naturally and precisely as possible to the thin strands.
When it comes to lightening by colouration, heat is usually required to intensify the colour effect. Not so with babylights. A hood dryer, blow dryer, foils and so on are not needed for application since the result should be fine and discreet.
