When I hear the word "highlights," the images that come to mind aren't pretty. I see a woman with enough foil in her hair to wrap a Thanksgiving turkey. A guy with strategically placed strands of bleach -- streaks, if you will -- in his spikey, gelled hair. But when I see a salon's list of coloring services, there's an entire vocabulary beyond "frosted tips" and professional versions of Sun In that are a total mystery to me. We're in a world of ombre, balayage, and partial-foil-lowlights that may or may not be both weaved and sliced, but what does it all mean?
Here, expert stylist Marco Pelusi, the man responsible for Stacy Keibler's gorgeous head of hair, breaks down all things highlights for us. So whether you're considering adding some dimension to your color, or just tired of Googling different terms before taking a blank stare and a picture of Sarah Jessica Parker in to your stylist, consider this your condensed version of Highlights for Dummies, 2013 edition.
