How To Make Caramel Highlights for Black Hair

When you are seeking a trendy and new style, these caramel locks look stunning on black hair and dark brown hair, and the shades are best to correctly match your skin tone.

There are traditional techniques, which use foil or a special hat for locks. You can also try balayage technique which is just a free application of the color treatment by hand strokes.

With the foil, you will get a very even and precise result, while with balayage the effect is more natural.

The method allows you to apply the desired color in specific areas, which will bring more light and brighten your face and give you a beautiful look.

When you are dyeing with the Ombre type, the hair color gradually changes from dark to light, from the roots to your ends.

Instead of creating a grading effect, the accents of the balayage are applied along the entire length of the hair, in specific areas.

If you are seeking for very light and even unrecognizable effect, sombre is your dyeing method. It creates a softer, less contrasting, transition of shades from root to tip of your hair.

You may have trouble achieving caramel highlights on black hair without bleach because it’s almost impossible to lighten your hair without chemical ingredients.

When you want to be more delicate in your hair color, baby highlights will brighten up your look in a supernatural way.

With this technique, you will dye much smaller sections of hair, and the sections are much closer together.
