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.
