Pintura Partial Highlights

Pintura Partial Highlights

Partial head just means your colorist will place pintura highlights around the face and on the sides of the hair. It literally means “to paint,” and with this technique colorists apply hues directly onto the hair without the use of foil. The stylist does not touch the back of the hair. This is probably not the look for clients that wear your hair half up and half down often.

Typically, a stylist does a partial pintura highlight for a client that is seeking color dimension. Dimension is a contrast of light and dark tones. An example of dimensional color might be created by adding lighter hair color to natural hair color creating a contrast and the “dimensional color” look. They “paint” this way because it allows more application freedom, as a result colorists are able to individually identify which curls catch the light the best, and highlight them to add more dimension to someone’s individual texture.
