"Lowlights" is a technique similar to highlights, but it provides opposite results. Lowlights consist of adding a darker color to hair. This technique offers deeper tones that give depth to the overall look. It's important to understand that when using this technique, there is no going back. There is no lift process or lightener when creating lowlights.
Lowlights can give the impression that hair is thicker and has more volume, so it looks great with clients who have fine hair. Lowlights is also an excellent technique for clients who want to add depth, to naturally light hair without adding more highlights and risking additional damage from lightening.
If you have a client who wants to make their hair a few shades darker, without sacrificing any dimension, lowlights are a great option.
