The flip side: Lowlights Lowlights are, as expected, the opposite of highlights. Instead of lifting the color of the hair a few shades, stylists will use the same foil method to take strategically placed strands a few shades darker than the natural base color to achieve a softer, darker color. "If you feel your hair is looking a bit too solidly one color, then it's time for some lowlighting." This technique is especially good for adding dimension, depth and appearance of thicker hair while creating a more natural-looking blend.
