Slicing (highlights, not actual hair) Not to be confused with taking a machete to your hair, slicing refers to a more choppy highlighting technique. Hair slicing is typically used to create a bolder highlighting look than its weaving counterpart. "Slicing describes when a stylist literally takes a slice of your hair -- generally 1/8 of an inch thick -- as the hair that will be highlighted in a foil. Skilled hairstylists can slice highlights beautifully. With thicker slices, you get highlights that are chunkier and more noticeable.
