Hair Colour Ideas & Techniques 

With so many amazing hair colour techniques available, it can sometimes be a little overwhelming as to what each service entails. Find out more about hair colour terminology below...

Highlights & Lowlights

Usually used to lighten the hair, but we can also be used to add rich brown tones, pastels, or even vibrant colours - known as lowlights. For touching up the roots of already coloured hair or lightening a darker base. Looks natural as the chair olour grows out as there is no definite line between colour and regrowth. Can be used with one or more colours depending on the look you are going for.  For natural looking hair colours, check out this article.

Hair Colour - Toners

When you’ve had your hair pre-lightened, highlighted or had a full head of colour, it’s always recommended that you use a toner on the hair as it naturalises any yellow/brassy tones. To get a cool ash blonde, you need to lift with pre-lightener to the correct level then tone to neutralise and get the correct tone. Which is why we call it a toner.

Hair Colour Glossing

Preferably used on virgin or coloured hair on a similar base shade without grey to create tone and shine. Leaves a glossy finish and can add depth or richness to the colour.

Balayage Hair Colour

Balayage gives a subtle, natural and blended look with lighter highlights scattered throughout the hair.  One of the most popular techniques over the last few years, balayage has proven to be so successful with our clients because it allows greater flexibility with colour changes and because the colour doesn't 'grow out' like conventional highlighting techniques. Find out more about the best balayage in Edinburgh here, including some fabulous hair created in our salons.

Ombré Hair Technique

Ombré is a technique of lightening the hair and leaving a darker base so you can see the transition from dark to light, or dark to pastel.

Check out this recent client testimonial...

"While in Edinburgh recently on business, I decided that my hair colour desperately needed doing. I was recommended to visit Cheynes Hairdressing on George Street. After my consultation with one of the colour team, she suggested that I try their highlighting system called ‘Clipmeche’. As I normally have my highlights done using tinfoil I was a bit unsure, but took their advice.

"I was also informed about the environmental credentials of the product, which is important to me too. When she put the Clipmeche in it felt really secure, which gave me confidence. She was also able to apply three different colours which really excited me. After the Clipmeche was taken out and the stylist started to dry my hair I couldn’t believe how close the colour was to the root.

"With other methods I often felt the need to have it re-done after a couple of weeks. With Clipmeche, I no longer have that feeling, as after two weeks my hair looks like it has just been coloured. So no more tinfoil for me! I’m now a devoted Clipmeche fan and I visit Cheynes every time I’m back in Edinburgh."
