Full vs. Partial OK, you know what type of highlights you want, now how much? Here is where the terms "full" and "partial" come into play. Partial highlights (like Rosie Huntington-Whiteley's) are usually placed around the face for a brightening or framing effect, while full gets you just that -- your full head highlighted. "If your hair -- including the back -- is dark (like Leighton Meester's), you will need a full highlighting. If it hasn't been that long since your last highlighting service, or if your hair, especially the back, isn't that dark, just go with a partial."
Still not sure where you land? "A general recommendation is to do a partial at one visit, and a full on the next. It's a good rule of thumb and easier and better for the pocketbook to alternate."
