Highlights are super fun, both to wear and to look at. But a highlight job at your local salon can cost anywhere from $100 to $400, and doing it yourself isn’t that easy either without making a lot of mess. Not to mention, highlights only last for a couple of weeks max due to your hair’s natural growth.
Want highlights this 2019 but don’t want to deal with the cost and the necessary touch-ups to keep your new ‘do? ZALA is here to the rescue with an easy way to rock highlights this 2019!
1. Prepare your ZALA Tape-in Hair Extensions
Take two different sets of hair extensions. One will serve as the base colour, basically the same colour as your current hair. The other will serve as the colour of your highlights. For best results, use a colour that is only 2-3 shades lighter than your hair. This looks more subtle and a lot more natural.
2. Combine the hair extensions together
Get a piece each from both sets and put them side by side. Remove the paper from your original hair colour and attach it to the lighter shade. Keep doing this until you’re satisfied with the results.
3. Tape the hair extensions to your hair
Once you’ve finished preparing the hair extensions, it’s finally time to tape them in! Start by adding piece by piece of your original colour to your hair. Once you reach the widest part of your head, it’s time to start attaching the lighter coloured pieces! Make sure to put smaller pieces at the side of your head too.
4. Add some finishing touches
Afterwards, brush through your hair to ensure that the lighter pieces are evenly distributed. If you want to make the highlights more pronounced, feel free to add in more pieces of the lighter coloured pieces. Once you’re satisfied, you can now add in the rest of the original hair colour to finish the look.
