Highlighting Your Hair At Home : Tips And Tricks

02:30



Hello my dear Makeupoholics ,

I am very much exited today as i am going to share how to give highlights in your hair at home ... it was very much requested to give guidelines ... and here i am sharing the best of my knowledge ... hope you all like it and find it helpful <3

here we go ... please read and follow all the steps carefully ..

1.       It is highly recomended to wash your hair with your regular shampoo before cutdown or highlighting your hair. Please dont apply conditioner .... as its better to apply it later.

2.       Before Highlighting You may need to Cutdown your hair color. Cut down means you may need to bleach or cut down the original color of your hair color if they are dark enough, beacuse otherwise you will not be able to get the required shade( if its lighter then your original hair color ). 

Bleaching Your Hair ( cut down )

There are two ways to bleach your hair streaks


·         With ordinary Bleach cream :

Its as simple as bleaching your facial hair. Take any bleach cream like Mod Girl Cream Bleach large bottle and put the whole amount of powder available along with it, dnt forget to mix well. And then apply it on your hair by making sections ( watch below videos and pics how to make sections ) . You can seal the applied bleach cream hair strands with a foil , its not necessary . Wait , till you get the required shade (light gold ) It may take you 30-40 mins . Then wash your hair with plain water and let it dry(dnt apply conditioner). Sometimes , the bleaching color itself is soo good that you dnt need to apply any other color further more.
Note : I am using this method for the first time on my sis hair and sharing pics with you :)

·         With Keune

Take Keune Developer Vol 30 full bottle and Keune Bleaching Powder/Streaking Powder Half Bottle. Mix well . Apply on hair making sections( watch below videos and pics how to make sections ) . Wait till you get the required color ( that’s why sometimes not using foil is better so you can see the hair changing its color).But do use foils if later you are not going to apply the highlighter color on all your hair. Wait for 15-30 mins depends on how dark your orginal hair are and it works faster then usual bleach creams. Then wash your hair with plain water and let it dry .

 Sectioning Your hair for Bleaching : 

Watch these two videos first

Hope these videos help you , bu if not check my bleaching step pics here : ( sorry if they are not clear)

Important Note : I am using the bleaching cream method here and not using any foils ... dont worry if it looks messy because later i am going to apply the color on whole hair for that light and dark hair effect ... 

divide you hair in two main sections ... front n back....

apply bleaching cream to the back side first .. its easy this way..

fully cover your hair with the product .. otherwise you will not get the results..


if there r five hair strands .. you need to apply product on strand no : 1 , 3, 5 ... easy isnt it ...

while going upward...on second row... apply product on hair strand 2, 4, 6..... just fill the gaps ... easy again...

apply bleach on one hair strand , miss the second and then again apply on third ... cover the whole back area this way...


front section... take a middle partition..again go for the deep down last line and work your way upward on one partition...while moving upward ... follow the 1,3,5 strategy ...this way complete the whole front section...


So , once you are done with bleaching your hair ... you can apply the highlighting color if you want ( if you dnt get the required results after bleaching your hair with normal bleach cream specially ) 

Apply the Highlighting Color 

  • If you want  a dark and light effect of same color : My sis hair color is already kind of blond ... so she just want to go for dark and light effect .For this purpose , she has applied Revlon Dark Ash Blond 60 on her whole hair( thats why i wasnt using foil )  for 60 mins ( coz she wants a grey hair coverage as well )...  After max 60 mins , wash your hair again with plain water by gently rubbing your hair and apply conditioner ( comes along with the hair color ) leave for 5 mins then wash again with normal water and you are ready to shine :)

mix the color properly and apply it on your hair evenly ... 

after washing and conditioning.. the final results are here .... :)





  • Prominent Streaks : Second method is to apply the color only on the bleached hair strands or streaks... after applying color just like you had applied the bleaching cream , cover the hair strands with a foil to protect the remaining hair from coloring...wait for 40 mins approx and wash your hair with plain water ( not warm water) Apply the conditioner provided with the color on all your hair equally... wait for five mins and wash again... and you are ready to shine :)
Hope you all like my effort ... please feel free to ask any questions or give your feedback ... your positive feedback means the world to me ... <3

  3. @Pandora`s Box thanks dear for liking ... and Yes there is a diff..Highlights remove color from your hair and make it lighter and lowlights make hair color darker... the best hair streaks is a mix of both ... Simply put, highlights lighten and brighten your hair color, while lowlights darken and deepen it. Common highlighting hues include blonde, gold and chamomile tones, while lowlights are likely to be reds, plums and auburn shades. Two or three colors can be used throughout the hair to create shimmering, true-looking contrasts... hope you understand the difference now :)

  9. Thanks for posting this. I usually pay $125 for what my stylist calls "hi lights/low lights" when she does them so I assume she is using both? I'm going to give it a shot at home this time. Any suggestions on good brands/stores to purchase at home kits? I was going to look at the local Ulta store. Thanks so much!

  22. I want to ask something. I have kind of dark brown hair. i bought facial bleach because i have seen many of my friends,relatives using facial bleach to colour their one or three strands.I bought one too. I actually wanted to colour my hair with hair colors which elders use for covering white hair but it didnt work so people told me about facial bleach so i bought it.Now, i want to bleach my hair but i dont want them to get golden i want them to be kind of brown.someone said it depends on time,less time,less colour,more time golden colour.What if i do it like this? Or i should like first bleach oen of my strand and then apply hair colour on that bleaached strand?

    1. Bleach is used to cut down the color .. after tht u need a color to apply according to your desire .. Some people have very dark hair n after bleach their hair turns to light golden bt still its better to apply color on bleached hair as to avoid hair to become rough n dull
