Sun-Kissed Hair is Still a Go This Summer at Tulip Salon & Spa

The odds are that if you had a summer vacay planned for this year, you've had to reschedule. As much as we wish we were out lounging by the pool – and believe us, we really do – we're doing our part to social distance. Just because you're social distancing, however, doesn't mean that you can't have the sun-kissed hair of your dreams! Read on to see what kind of highlighting technique you should try on for size to lighten your look this summer.

Balayage is a coloring technique in which stylists use a "sweeping" painting technique when applying color to create a more natural, graduated highlight effect.

Traditional highlights are when sections of hair are lighted from root to end, leaving some of the natural hair color in between.

Babylights are exactly what they sound like: a superfine version of traditional highlights. This technique blends and melts thin highlights to the base of the hair, giving off a shimmer or glow resembling that of a child's sun-kissed hair.

The money piece is a face-framing technique in which a lighter color is applied to the hairline. This super trendy highlighting method is often applied alongside balayage, highlights, etc. Still, it can be added to any hair type (and color!) to lighten the complexion and make the color pop.
