Mid-lights: What They Are and Why You’ll Want Them Next
Since the Ombre trend first came on the scene, drawing its inspiration from the ‘rooty’ look that happens when hair that’s been dyed starts to show signs of regrowth with dark roots graduating to lighter coloured ends, we’ve seen a progression towards the incorporation of more softly blended highlights in our hair.
Less dramatic, but without sacrificing the beautiful face-framing effect, mid-lights came on the scene in 2018. Straight out of Beverly Hills but perfect for our relaxed Australian style, mid-lights can be created with a mix of foils and balayage to create a naturally sun-kissed, just-been-at-the-beach mermaid vibe.
Which Haircolour Works Best with Mid-lights?
The answer is any, mid-lights are perfect for almost any hair colour. You’ll be mixing in warm buttery-gold hues, with rich espresso low lights, to create an all-over blended, creamy finish; dark or light, it doesn’t matter.
The idea is to work with your natural base colour, using that as a starting point then blending colour to make a seamless transition between the brightest sections and the darkest points. You want pops of light and dark colour but without any of the harshness. It’s a move away from the dark ‘rooty’ look while still incorporating the elements of all-over natural colour with dark to light contrast providing classic movement and depth.
MIdlights work perfectly in any season. As the effect is so gradual and subtle you can adjust the tones to create warmth for the cooler months then brighten things up again with highlights as summer rolls around.
