Modern highlights include a myriad of innovative techniques, that interact
hand-in-hand with the haircut, to accentuate the style, and client. Both
must be created together, to fully capitalize on the strengths of the design.
Today, highlights are considerably more "variegated" than in the past.
Contrast brings freshness to the style, and enhances the skin and eyes.
While simple highlighting was the preferred method of the recent past,
contemporary hair colorists chose newer techniques like . . . paneling,
chunking, veiling, tone-on-tone, pattern color, etc. All designed to bring
drama to today's more flamboyant hairstyles.
