Hair Foils (Highlights)
Using Hair foils, highlighting is a service that has been popular since it was first introduced in salons in the 80s. You will be relieved to know that we have come a long way since then and with a multitude of hair foil techniques, there are options for all hair and skin tones. Whether it be ‘babylights’ for a very subtle lift or clever panelling with a combination of carefully selected dark and light hair foils to create drama; your stylist will identify which technique is best suited to your individual needs.
Jude says, “Depending on how many levels you want to lift your hair, will dictate how often we should expect you in-salon. It is important to consider your natural undertones in order to create the perfect complementary colour.”
There is a range of hair foil placements, from face framing colour to all-over uniform highlights to partial highlighting. With such wide artillery at the salon’s disposal, it is important when considering hair foils that you have a thorough consultation with one of our highly trained stylists to make sure you achieve the desired result.
At Fowler35 we also offer bonding treatments, this is reassurance that the bonds of the hair are not compromised and you maintain strong, healthy hair post-colour service.

Hair foils for pale skin
If your skin is pale along with beautiful coloured eyes, then a contrast created with the help of dark brown and black hues would give you a mesmerizing look. Reds and blondes are good options too in case you do not prefer to create contrast of foils. Typically pale skin further has varied tones, such as pink, red and blue undertones. Mocha brown, violet red and icy blondes are some of the colours that would complement red and pinkish undertones. Some other hair colours like champagne and platinum also suit pale skin.
Hair foils for brown skin
European and naturally tanned brown skin tones are generally warmer as compared to pale skin. Thereby, they look significantly better with warm and rich foils hair colour. Dark browns and dark blondes are considered to be the most perfect hues for brown skin. Colours like golden browns, mocha, caramels and honey-shaded blondes are always a smart choice if you have this skin tone. The reason behind it is that these colours would always offer you a gleaming complexion.
Always try to stay away from those shades that match too closely with the tone of your skin. Such colours will wash out your entire persona. There is a rule of thumb for it. It is always better to prefer a darker colour for your hair as compared to the tone of your skin. Also try out violet based hues, ebony browns and earthy browns.
Hair foils for dark skin
Individuals with dark skins can pick one of the two main ways to do their foils hair. They can either select a colour that’s relatively darker or lighter as compared to their natural skin tone. This will allow them to create a magnetizing contrast. The coolest hair colours for this specific skin tone are inky black and dark espresso. If your skin tone is warmer, then colours like toffee, maple brown and mahogany can also augment your overall beauty and personality.
