Q: My hair is a medium brown colour and I've been looking at different types of highlighting / lowlighting. As it will be my
first time, it has been suggested that I should get t-section highlights or lowlights and I was wondering what that is exactly and
whether it will make a lot of difference to my hair (I was thinking of getting reddish lowlights). Thank you for taking the time to read my question!
A: T-section highlights are highlights that highlight the hairs in approximately 1/4th of the head, specifically in the top and crown
area. This is generally advised for those who donít want to overdo it with the highlighting, who have highlights but simply want to
cover the new growth, or who simply want to add a little spark and pizzazz to their hair for special occasions.
The amount of impact this type of highlighting will have depends largely on the stylist performing
the process and how thick the slices he or she chooses to color. Many people opt for t-section highlights because it is generally less
expensive than full-head or half-head highlighting.
Discuss matters with your stylist before you have the highlights applied and make sure that t-section
highlights will give you the kind of results you want. If youíre unsure, err on the side of caution. Remember, itís easier to add more
highlighting than it is to remove them.
