Whether you're seeking a full blonde transformation, highlights, lowlights, balayage, ombre hair, extreme lifting, or bleach and tone, our hair stylists and color experts got you covered.

Let's dig deeper into our blonding and balayage services to help find the right choice!


Don't let anyone tell you that you can’t go platinum, even if you have level 3 hair (how us hair stylists refer to the darkest shades of brown). Custom lightening and blonding are our top areas of expertise and we've mastered the extreme lift, even on virgin hair. It takes time, but if you approach blonde hair as a process, you'll enjoy the journey as well as the final outcome!

The Best Hair Treatment Products for the Job

Professional Hair Bleaches. When it comes to lighteners, we prefer Schwarzkopf, especially when working with the darkest brown and black hair colors. The Schwarzkopf professional lighteners are extra conditioning which means we can let you process a little bit longer, and that helps me get maximum lift out of your session.

Bond Builders. For hair strengthening and repair, our go-to bond builder is from our in salon line of Redken hair products. Designed to repair broken or weak bonds during the chemical process, with even more conditioning.

Highlights and Lowlights

Highlights are a few shades lighter than your base color and are a great way to give hair a multi tonal effect. Add interest to brunette or black hair colors with warm caramel shades or honey toned highlights. Lowlights are colors used to darken lighter hair colors and are typically only a few shades darker than your base color, though they make an impact when it comes to creating depth in your color.

Shadow Root Blonde

Some clients don't like their highlights to be so visible on the top of the head, they prefer a shadow root look. The rooted look is super lived-in with more base color showing around the crown.

Money Piece Highlights

Money Piece highlights add a bright frame of blonde around the face. It's an easy way to freshen up your look without a lot of fuss because the front hairline is what’s most noticeable. If you tend to go 3+ months in between your full highlights, try coming in for some money piece face framing foils to keep your hair from looking grown out and brassy!


It's the best of foil highlights and balayage. Using foils to wrap up balayage sections of hair gives extra lifting time, as the foils slow the dry time of the lightening agent. More lift means lighter and brighter.


It's the look of balayage but using a foil technique. In order to focus highlights on mid to ends, sections of hair are teased before lightener is applied.


Babylights mimic the subtle, multi-dimensional hair color seen on children’s hair. Babylights are natural looking and a low maintenance color option. They work best on fine hair and can be applied to any hair color or length of hair, highlighting delicate slices of hair especially around the hairline and natural parting.

Balayage Highlights, Blonde Balayage

Also referred to as hand painted highlights, balayage gives natural, subtle-looking highlights. Balayage is a highlighting technique which uses a specific type of lightener and an exact application for soft, sun-kissed hair color that lightens gradually toward the ends. Balayage requires a more customized approach. Because of the exact placement of the highlights, balayage has a way of brightening and contouring the face. It is low maintenance, meaning fewer visits to the salon for a hair color service.

Ombre Hair Color

Balayage and ombre hair are often confused but they are different. Think of it this way- balayage is a technique, ombre hair is a look. Ombre hair is about that contrast from root to tip, gradually changing from one color to another. A new take on the ombre trend is the color melt. In a color melt, usually three or more colors are used, and they typically come from the same color family to optimize the blending.

Bleach and Tone: All Over Blonde

In contrast to highlights, all over blonding means just that we are lightening the entire head, not just accent pieces. There are a few different ways we can perform an all-over blonding service. Depending on your hair type and condition, we could do a bleach and tone which is an on-scalp bleaching process. The alternative is off scalp, known as a Platinum Card.

Platinum Card Hair Blonding Technique

The Platinum Card is an all-over blonding service performed with the help of foils. We brush lightener onto every strand of hair and wrap each section in foil. This minimizes direct contact between the bleaching agent and your scalp and allows me to take a client with darker hair to a platinum blonde. The foils slow the dry time of the lightener, which gives us more lifting time. The longer the lightener is still wet, the longer it stays active.
