Coloring your hair is a huge commitment. When you walk out of the salon, your hair is on fleek, but after a few weeks the color starts to fade and your roots grow out. A lot of stylists recommend touching up your color every 8-10 weeks, and that is expensive! Plus, it is rough on your hair. Here are a few ways to make your highlights last longer so you don’t have to touch them up so often.FullSizeRender (16)

  1. Go for balayage: When you get balayge highlights the stylist makes them look more natural. The highlights don’t go all the way up to your roots, so you can’t tell when they are growing out. Also, choose a shade of highlights that is only a few shades lighter than your natural hair color, because subtle highlights are way easier to maintain!
  2. Try “babylights: This highlight trend focuses on natural highlighting. They are like the highlights you got as a kid from playing out in the sun! This trend focuses on brightening up the hair right by your face to give you a sun-kissed look, then fades the highlights throughout your hair for a natural look. These aren’t so obvious when they grow out.
  3. Wash less: Shampooing your hair less helps maintain your color. Try shampooing every other day and using dry shampoo on the days in between. Also, good color starts with healthy hair, so by keeping your hair moisturized and healthy, you can help it hold the color longer.


Hopefully this helps you keep your highlights and color longer! I’m all about saving time and money.
