Is your resolution this year to try a new hair color? Or is dyeing your hair a new and stressful experience for you? Whatever your current condition, it’s a good idea to understand the different hair colors and any hair coloring techniques you can try.

Contrary to the beliefs of many people, dyeing hair does not mean having to give color to the whole part of the hair. There are many coloring techniques that you can try to get different results. Wondering what hair coloring techniques can you choose?

Hair coloring techniques


Basically, bleaching is a chemical process that decays the natural melanin of the hair, so that the black or dark hair will fade and become light.

Permanent Hair Color.

As the name suggests, a single coloring technique is applied to all parts of the hair. Its nature can be adjusted to your liking, i.e. Permanent or temporary. If it’s firm with one hair color, it doesn’t take a while to try a permanent hair color that can last up to 6 months.

Temporary Hair Color

Temporary hair colors are difficult to distinguish from permanent hair colors, especially with the naked eye. What sets it apart is the developer products used. Temporary hair coloring techniques tend to be safe, and there are also options for those of you who are vegan.


Hair Coloring Techniques

The highlight is a hair coloring technique with a choice of colors that are lighter than the original color of the hair. Usually highlights do not apply to all parts of the hair because the purpose is just to show the difference in the texture of the hair only. Light hair color is only used in certain parts so that hair with layer pieces appears more volume.


Have you ever heard of balayage hair coloring techniques? The name balayage comes from French which means golden coloring on the hair side of the hair that “captures” light resulting in a natural gradation effect. In balayage techniques, each strand of hair is given a golden dye with fingers, without aluminum foil or hair cap. Not only does it look more natural than the highlights, the resulting gold color will also not seem excessive.


Foiling is part of a highlighting technique that aims to color the hair on certain parts only. As the name suggests, the foiling technique uses aluminum foil media to separate the hair based on the desired color. Some strands of your hair will be wrapped in aluminum foil so that the colors don’t mix with each other.

Allover hair color

As the name suggests, this technique is the application of only one color to your hair.

This type of technique has three levels, namely:

  1. Permanently, use a formula containing ammonia and peroxide that will chemically change the color of your hair. This chemical change that makes it permanent.
  2. Demi-permanent, coloring does not contain ammonia, but contains peroxide to help the hair absorb color. Generally the color will fade in 12 to 24 shampooing times.
  3. Semi permanent, the coloring does not contain ammonia and the color is only stored on the surface of the hair. Generally the color will disappear about 6 to 12 times shampooing.

Two tone hair coloring

This technique includes only two colors, one for the base of the hair and another for strands of hair that are lighter, darker, or enriched with color. In the era of balayage, techniques like this may have been difficult to find. Most hairdressers prefer to use 3 and more colors to blend perfect highlights in the hair.
