Low-lights?

ElvishThistleElvishThistle Registered Users Posts: 130
I've always wanted to get low-lights but I'm not really sure how they'd work in curly hair? Does anyone get them here? What would you ask for, only a few foils or throughout? Sorry for all the questions, this is definitely venturing out for me. :)

Thanks!

Low Poo: TJ's TTT, ACV/beer Rinses once a month or so, Soap Bars once in a while, Carols Daughter Khoret Amen shampoo
Conditioner: AOHR, AOGPB, Suave Coconut, vo5 Kiwi, etc
Style
HE gels, occasional hairspray, Garnier Fructis Curl shaping gel spray, FSG when I actually make it
Honey/AVG only in the summer

HG I fell into the craze and my hair is happy with Deva! No Poo, Angel, and one condish = awesome hair day.
My hair loves Protein!

    I've had them done. I liked it --- it was fun. It added depth, especially to my bangs. I think they work well on medium or lighter colored hair: I'm a strawberry blonde, so I went with a deeper red.

    However, the price was too high to keep up with. I think I'm going to buy one of those hi-lites caps from Sally's, and some slightly darker hair dye, and do them myself next time.

    I've had them done too. Ninja dog is absolutely right, they are fun and they do add depth. I have what stylists call partial low lights. It basically means that I have everything except the nape done. If you are going to get them done professionally I suggest you find a picture of what you want because sometimes its hard to explain with words. Good luck!

    I made it! Tailbone length stretched, WL curly

    Teri Laflesh's book "Curly Like Me" sits on my desk and everytime I get frustrated and an impulse tells me to shave my head, I look at it in hopes that one day my hair will graze the top of my butt.

    I've wanted them for a while now too. Stylists always talk me out of them though, they say single processes work better on curly hair but I can never remember why! My fantasy is to get just a few pieces lightened, and then color my normal warm brown w/ a little bit of red. I think it would add depth to what I feel is my very one dimensional hair. I would love to see anybody's pics that have gotten subtle highlights/low-lights on dark hair.
