Underground Hair have been doing foils for over 60 years. We are experts in colour and application. Hence we use only the best quality products to ensure your hair stays healthy and undamaged during the process.
What are foils?
Foils are strips of aluminium foil like what you would find in a kitchen. Foils are cut in to strips wide enough to cover a big section of hair. The mixed colour is applied to a section of hair whilst the foil is placed underneath.
A hairdresser will apply the colour to the hair against the foil, and then fold the foil around the section of hair to keep it seperate from the uncoloured or different coloured hair. Therefore, foils allow the hairdresser to create natural highlights or lowlights or very bright monochromatic colours for a dramatic pop.
Foils also allow the hairdresser to apply multiple colours to the hair in one sitting as the colour will not touch and mix.
Types of Foils
There are four different techniques to foiling: highlights, painting or balayage, frosting and chunking. Highlights are more natural looking and blended with the natural colour. Painting or balayage is a trend where the ends are a different colour to the top of the hair.
Frosting is more common on shorter hair where just the tips are highlighted. Finally, chunking is the random selection of chunks of hair to which we add a colour and the result is quite thick.
Are you thinking of getting foils?
At Underground Hair we can focus on touching up your root colour with foils. We can also apply a half-head, 3/4 head or full-head of foils to freshen up your colour or completely change your look as well.
