Transcript:How to Do Blond Highlights at HomeHello! My name is Laura Kiorkis and I'm owner and operator of Gemini of Chicago Hair Salon in Peoria, Arizona. Today, I'm going to show how to get blonde highlights at home. When choosing a highlighting kit for home use, there are many options available at the drugstore or at your local beauty supply store.
Supplies for Doing Blond Highlights at HomeThe different at-home highlighting kits available may include a cap highlighting or frosting technique where you put a cap on the head and pull through certain pieces that you would like blonde or another kit available is one where a comb is used to apply highlights to the surface of the hair where it may give you a more sun-kissed or natural look.
Notes About Doing Blond Highlights at HomeWhen highlighting your hair at home always keep in mind that it is not recommended to go more then two shades lighter than your existing color. Usually in a frosting cap kits you'll find a cap to place on the head and pull through the highlights, the tools needed to do so and your colors and chemicals.
Extra Information about How to Do Blond Highlights at HomeIn your at-home highlighting kit you'll always find the manufacturer's directions and safety guidelines to insure that you get the best results. You also always want to do a skin test to make sure you do not have any allergic reaction and a hair strand test to make sure your hair will take properly to the product. In this case we'll pull the desired pieces out through the cap, apply the highlighting mixture on top, process according to the time provided in your instructions and then rinse and follow any further instructions. Your end result will be a natural looking at-home highlight.
