Partial Highlights Vs. Half Head Of Foils—Do You Know The Difference?

Partial Highlights Vs. Half Head Of Foils—Do You Know The Difference?

Colorists: It’s time to start working smarter, not harder. BTC Team Member Lo Wheeler (@lo_wheelerdavis) couldn’t agree more, which is why she recently took to Instagram to break down the difference between partial highlights and a half head of foils. If you consider these two techniques to be the same thing, then you’re pretty much doing twice the amount of work and not charging the difference. 

 

“Don’t give away your work for free,” advises Lo. “Investing in yourself and furthering your education will help you to communicate your value and charging your worth!”

 

Keep reading to see examples of each technique PLUS how Lo would price and time each!

Partial Highlights

 

  • Lo considers this client a “partial” or “Mohawk,” which is ideal for freshening up color in the partings of the hair.

 

  • Total chair time: 1 hour and 45 minutes

 

  • Pricing: $145-$165 (Includes a shadow root application and a blowout!)

 

Note: Total chair time and pricing will vary depending on location, application, hair length and density.

 

Half Head Of Foils

 

  • Lo considers this client a “half head” because it’s way more extensive and detailed, which is good for a much lighter uniform color.

 

  • Total chair time: 2 hours and 15 minutes

 

  • Pricing: $165-$200 (Includes a shadow root application and a blowout!)

 

Note: Total chair time and pricing will vary depending on location, application, hair length and density.
