What Is a Partial Highlight?
A partial highlight is a highlight service that is only done in sections, usually placed around the face for a brightening or framing effect.
Highlights are placed, typically, in only the mohawk section of your head, although some stylists consider a partial highlight to be the top half or the top and side sections of your head. It’s really up to the stylist’s discretion based on the look you’re going for if a partial highlight is a service you’re looking for.
Partial highlights can be very natural looking and are designed to lighten the hair in a similar manner to the way the sun would lighten your hair, although a partial highlight service can be dramatic and bold as well by only placing a few, heavy highlights in one specific area of your hair.
