Best Hair Salon for Highlights in Toronto

A classical highlight is a process of lightening (bleaching) individual strands of hair. If the colourist has done it correctly, the brightened parts fit in harmony with the given colour. Highlighted hair strands are not breaking the whole picture. The result of the procedure should be a hair glow. In addition, your hair become lush and multilayered.

Highlights hair colouring is one of the most popular and versatile colour techniques.

Other highlighting techniques, like Balayage or Ombre, Sombre, Bronde, Air Touch , etc. have appeared relatively recently have already become popular and the role of traditional highlights is still important. The classical highlights involve the process of lightening the hair strands though the length and the thickness of the hair strands can vary. The more subtle the hair strands, the less the difference between the already-painted hair strands and the base colour of the hair, and the end result will look more natural. This version of highlighting is ideally suited to those with a natural brown or light hair colour who want to lighten their base colour, as well to those who wish to hide grey without classical hair colouring.

It's not easy to perform a beautiful and quality highlights. You should consider all the nuances of the procedure, the quality of supply materials and qualifications of colour technician. Highlighting types differ between the technique of colouring, the length of the hair, and the colour variety

In addition, the number and magnitude (size) of the strands that are coloured should be taken into account. Some highlighting techniques have been recognized as classical or traditional, but their relevance is not lost today.

Partial highlights consists of bleaching individual hair strands or colouring a single zone of hair, such as creating a colour transition in asymmetrical haircuts.

Traditional Highlights and Reverse Highlights (Lowlights)

In the case of traditional highlights, this involves lightening the hair. With Lowlights hair strands are getting darker, as a rule, into the natural tone of the client's hair colour. A frequently used technique in the case of regular highlighting is when the borderline between the hair strands is blurred and the overall colour turns to blond. The reverse highlighting technique is just as good for natural blondes. Using this technique (especially when using several shades of lowlights) the stylist can give you monochromatic character to colour without classic colouring.

Highlights is subdivided into a normal and gentle. The normal type allows you to change hair colour by several tones, usually from 4 to 8 tones. The gentle variety allows you to move away from the natural shade just two or three tones up. It is essential that high quality lighteners with moisturizing components are used in the process. Also important is using chemicals with a "reviving" hair function, for example Olaplex, without it it just impossible to perform highlighting in today's world. At the same time, the highlighting process helps to gradually return to the natural colour of the hair in the case when you decide to switch from a blonde to your natural colour

Highlighting gives volume and shine to the hair (the highlighted strands are drier than your natural and unpainted hair, respectively, they do not get as dirty). It also allows for excellent blending for grey hair, as it does not require frequent repetition of the procedure.

What are disadvantages of highlighting hair?

It is necessary to note that the highlighting procedure has a number of shortcomings that must be taken into account if you decided to use it. The highlighting process takes a long time (sometimes up to three hours with full lightening). Since the preparations for highlighting contain chemicals, they somehow harm the hair. In particular, the hair is spoiled when the procedure is repeated very often, even if done with top quality products. Therefore, if you still decide to have a beautiful hair highlights, you need to consult a professional colour technician, ask what products he or she uses, what experience he has, etc. And of course we must not forget about home hair care products and procedures.

My suggestions about transforming your hair with Highlights colouring

  • Works well for all types of hair, and for all haircuts regardless of the length of the hair.
  • Does not require frequent salon visits.
  • If your natural hairs are prevalent with warm shades, and you want a steady, colder colour direction, it is recommended that you use tint hair products weekly (platinum blond) to help maintaining colour at home.
  • It is recommended to use professional lines for hair care at home.
  • Professional remediation procedures such as Hair Botox and Olaplex are recommended.
  • Highlights is not recommended if the hair was previously processed with Henna.

Excellent service! I went in for a trim and color treatment, and left with a wonderfully layered cut and balayage highlights! I was pleased with the care taken by staff, especially with Amandine, who treated and styled my hair, and also with the owner, who encouragingly checked in. Both women had a very pleasant disposition! Thank you very much for your time and talent :)

My wife and I stumbled on this gem a month ago, with the reviews alone we decided to check it out and get a consultation.

From what we received from Elena we were very impressed (when doing your research and been to how many salons...'you'd be surprised' this place was the most knowledgeable/polite for us). From just 1 meeting she figured out my wife's hair along with complete honesty of what its going to take to fix it 'which is really what we are looking for.' We ended up coming back after 3 weeks (BOOK EARLY/ASAP! they are SUPER BUSY!), Elena and her team did an AMAZING JOB!! with my wife's hair (after a few salons couldn't get it right..)

My wife is so trilled with the professional care of 'Service' and 'Results' that she has received. They were ever so gentle and caring. This team of wonderful talented artists take their time in perfecting their work and you can tell that they take a lot of pride in what they do. We're very thankful and grateful for their kind hospitality and honesty.

Thank you Elena and team!

We shall be seeing you soon!

I came to Figaro to get blond highlights done. My hair was a complete disaster. It was damaged but worse of all the colour needed lots of correction. The staff at Figaro were great. I can't believe they saved my hair from the disaster it was in. I was so happy with the service. They took their time but above all did an amazing job. My hair looks perfect. So hard to get a salon that will do an amazing blond job. Figaro did it. I am definitely coming back!

Can’t wait to return, great experience and very friendly and professional staff.

Thank you ladies love it.

My first visit to Figaro was for a colour correction; another salon gave me blonde highlights I did not like and they gave me a hard time when I asked to have it fixed. I am so happy I chose Figaro, I am so pleased with the results! Lina assessed my hair, gave me quite a few options for correction, and then not only corrected my hair colour with a beautiful balayage/toner over blonde highlights, she also trimmed my hair to get rid of the choppy haircut I received (the cut started as just a quick fix, but she ended up cutting/styling it amazingly and for no charge). Throughout the process, Lina explained everything to me before she proceeded, which I really appreciated. Her and the rest of the crew treated me to coffee and chocolates and lastly, and this might just be my preference, but Lina always addressed me by my name, not 'hun, sweetie' or other terms of endearments, but by my name and it really made me feel like she was there for me, saw me as a person she wanted to help and not just another client. Thank you Lina and Figaro, I am absolutely calling you my salon of choice and so far, the best I have visited in Toronto!

This place has been nothing but pleasant! I have had excellent service from not only my stylist himself, but also the others involved. I gpt my hair dyed a new colour (ombre balayage) and the result has exceeded my expectations. It took roughly 2 hours give or take to get the style done and it was worth the wait. I arrived an hour early for my appointment and only had about 8 mins of waiting time. I was able to get it done earlier. Great service! Excellent!

Today, I had my hair done at Figaro Hair Salon by Lina and Elena. Lina is a professional hair stylist did a very good job by doing balayage and laminate for my hair. About a month ago, I've had a bad experience at another place where my hair colour end up completely wrong. So, I went to see Elena ( Art director) at Figaro Salon and asked her to fix the mistake. Elena took very professional approach advising it to be done in a few steps avoiding damagiing my hair. Elena and Lina work as a team. Elena has a very good esthetic taste and can give unique professional advice. I am very happy with the result.

I have been to this salon a few times and have always had a good experience. Great people, friendly atmosphere and wonderful service [not to mention the fantastic coffee and treats :)]. Today I had my brown roots and blonde highlights done by Lina. I have been experiencing some hair health issues lately and Lina was so considerate, gentle and reassurring. I received beautiful platinum blonde highlights without any damage. It turned out exactly as the picture I showed. The cut was perfect, as was the style. It has been a while since I've been this pleased with my hair and how my hair was dealt with. Thank you Lina ... you are an absolute sweetheart and I am very pleased and happy with my hair!

I have been getting my hair done at the Figaro salon for over 10 years now. It is operated by the owner Elena, who has lots of hairstyling and hair coloring experience. She probably won every single award under the sun! All her staff are very knowledgeable and a couple of years ago I had a pleasure of meeting Lina. She has years of hair styling experience on her own. Whether you are looking for creative ideas for coloring / cut /styles that would best suit you or have something specific in mind she is your kind of gal. With her we have maintained different styles which I loved but we also experimented with some new ones. She is a gem, I have never been disappointed and I am pleased to share my experience with her work. I am posting some of the coloring we did recently. Sorry as it turned out I didn't take many pictures of my hair alone!

I have been a customer for a couple of years and I have found the quality and customer service to be excellent.

I rarely have to wait to be seated and I can't say that of any other hair salon --and I am always a few minutes early!

As for the customer service, you can't ask for a more friendly atmosphere.

Seriously the best place I have ever been.

I came to Figaro salon today for a haircut with Lina. She was styling another lady with beautiful long wavy hair.

It looks really amazing. Lina is very kind and understanding. She did a very cute and chic A- line Bob for me.

I couldn't be any happier to find a hairstylist who cuts in so much detail (truly a perfectionist). Thank you so much for the pleasant service!

The other clients also have beautiful haircuts and colors with other stylists. They are very passionate and artistic. I highly recommend this place
