Blonde Hair and Platinum Blonde Hair

From icy blonde or ash blonde all the way to platinum blonde, we are the blonding experts, no matter what your natural hair color really is! We know how to recreate the natural highlights and lowlights of natural looking blonde hair.  We also carry blonde and blonde balayage hair extensions in a wide variety of lengths so that you can add dimension and length to your hair all at once.

Blonde Highlights, Highlights & Lowlights

Your stylist may recommend one of several types of highlighting and color accent techniques to best complement your cut and style.
Foil highlights are a precise technique used to give face-framing highlights or blonde highlights throughout the hair.  Lowlights add color, not lightener, to give your style some depth. And a combination of highlights and lowlights is a popular technique to give your color beautiful dimension.

Highlights should complement your natural color, but many women over-highlight their hair, so at our hair salon in Denver we often use lowlights to tone them down and temper the frosted look. Low-lights help create a vibrant hair color that brings out your skin tone and eye color.  Blonde highlights are not everyone.  For awesome looking hair color, stay within 2 shades of your natural color as a good rule of thumb.

Your hair color should never detract from your complexion, and too many highlights can make your skin look faded. A good tip is too add lowlights every third time you get your hair highlighted. They will help blend your highlights with your natural color, and you won’t have to go to the salon with dark roots every six weeks.


Another hybrid of balayage and foils, where sections of hair are teased before lightener is applied, accentuating hair from the mid length down. But don't get hung up on the lingo. Tell us what you like or show us your inspiration and we'll combine techniques if we need to.

Natural Look of Babylights

Babylights are traditional foil highlights which are applied using a delicate hair color technique to mimic the subtle, multi dimensional hair color seen on children’s hair. Babylights are natural looking and a low maintenance color option. Babylights are a great way to introduce color to your hair in a subtle way. They work best on fine hair, and can be applied to any hair color or length of hair. The babylights should be fine around the hairline and parting, with a gentle graduation of color that is lighter at the ends.

Which highlights are right for you?

Women with dark hair should not go more than three shades lighter than their natural color with highlights. In terms of lowlights, tones of red and a blend of copper and gold colors work best. When brown hair lightens naturally, it has to go through shades of red first. Thus red lowlights make highlights look much more natural on brunettes.

Natural blondes have more range in terms of highlights and don’t have to adhere firmly to the three-shade rule. Gold and copper lowlights are best, especially for blondes with very fair skin. They prevent the color from becoming brassy and won’t wash out a pale complexion. When mixing highlights and lowlights, the colors should be well blended and natural. Also, don’t have the back of your head highlighted too heavily. The sun naturally lightens the front of your hair, so highlighting too much in the back will detract from the natural feel of your color.

For winter highlights, going a little darker is best. Darker hair  lights are better for skin that is often paler in winter and won’t drain the color from the face. In summer, try a lighter color like platinum highlights. It’s best not to attempt highlights and lowlights at home. Unlike single-process color, it’s a customized process. Each shade must be carefully blended to enhance your hair color and complement your skin tone.

Balayage & Handpainting

Depending on your desired look, your stylist may suggest handpainting or Balayage, a freehand technique in which swatches of hair are sectioned and hand painted with a lightening agent.  Blonde balayage is quite a popular look.  We do a lot of blonde balayage with hair extensions too!

Ombre Hair

Ombre hair is a look that is achieved using a balayage technique, where color or lightener is concentrated on the ends of the hair for a dark to light progression, or a dip-dyed look.  Ombre hair is also referred to as a color melt.


Ok, it's not a real word but what else would we call the technique that combines balayage and foils. It's balayage but with extra lifting time, thanks to the foils. More lift means lighter and brighter.

Bronde Hair Color – A Fusion of Blonde & Brown

Bronde is a low-maintenance, highlighted blend of blonde and brown tones which started in 2017 and is still going strong for 2018. This winning hair color combo will warm up your skin tone, and will add dimension and life to your hair.  Bronde hair, with its fusion of blonde and brown with some sun-kissed pieces around the face will allow you to keep a little bit of summer with you.

Root Touch Ups

We can re-touch your hair color that was previously applied. Not only does it cover natural color re-growth or gray hair, but it also adds new color depth and shine so that your hair looks in perfect condition.

Shadow Root

Some clients don't like visible highlights up near the scalp or where the hair parts. A shadow root is a perfect solution. The shadow root look is super lived in with more base color showing. This look can be achieved with a root smudge service where a demi permanent hair color is applied.  

Root Smudge

A root smudge service is not quite the same as a root touch up! After getting blonde highlights, some clients like to have a blended effect especially at the top of the head.  A root smudge service is a demi permanent hair color applied to just the roots i order to give that shadow root look to highlighted hair. The demi permanent hair color is not intended to cover grey hair, rather to deepen the base color.

Gray Hair Coverage

Covering resistant grey hairs or your having a root touch is a job best left to the skilled hair colorists.  They can quickly get rid of unwanted white or grey hair and cover up your re-growth with precision application. This ensures no overlapping of color – only beautiful healthy, shiny looking hair! There's no shame in going gray and in fact this can be used to your advantage, even youngsters are coloring their hair grey in the name of fashion! Our hair color specialists can enhance your gray hair to create a beautiful color that is unique to you. We can also add blonde color to your gray or even pastel hair colors for a fun and fresh look.

Pastel Hair Color

Soft blues and pinks are in fashion and are a Spring favorite. Our expert colorists will first make sure there are no yellow tones in your hair so that you get the full powdery look of these pastel. Hair extensions are also a great way to incorporate some hints of blue and pink pastel colors into your current style.

Red Hair Color

It has never been so fashionable to go red.  Whether it’s a sunkissed strawberry blonde hair color, a red hot cherry red or a natural and effortless auburn hair color – look out! Red heads will be everywhere. There are so many different options when it comes to red hair, let us help you find your perfect shade:

  • red-orange hair color and cherry red
  • strawberry-blonde hair and copper reds look gorgeous against porcelain skin and paler skin tones.
  • auburn hair with russet tones makes green eyes pop and looks fantastic with nude and peachy make-up

Best Hair Color for Your Skin Tone

Whether you want to make a bold statement or simply cover grey, Glo Salon can guide you to the perfect hair color choice for your hair type and your natural skin tone.

Contrary to popular belief, hair color and skin tone go hand in hand. Depending on your natural skin pigmentation there are certain hair colors that tend to bring out your natural beauty more so than others. The perfect hair color will not only complement your skin tone and allow your best facial features pop, and it can also help you look younger. However if you get it wrong, you could end up looking washed out, tired, and very unnatural.

If you were born with black or brown hair, it is likely that you will have warmer and earthy undertones in your skin like yellow, brown, gold. Those with warmer undertones in their skin will tend to look better with a warmer hair colors. If you were born with blonde hair, you most likely have cooler skin undertones like blue, green, pink. You will tend to look better with cooler hair colors.
