Classic Highlights

What it is:

Medium Wave, medium density highlights.


Who would do it:

This is typically for people who want their hair lighter and want the perfect blend of maintenance and commitment.


How we do it:

Baykar London highlighting techniques are designed to ensure your highlights work in tandem with your natural hair growth, prolonging the time needed between visits.


Maintenance Level

Medium - We would normally expect, depending on colour choice, i.e. how close it is to your natural base colour, to see you every 12 weeks.



  • Classic T Section – applied the area closest to the crown stopping about midway down the hair shaft. Provides a more modest and natural looking colour than a Full Head of highlights or can be used to alternate between a half or full head of highlights.  


  • Classic Half Head – applied from the hairline at the crown down to the temple of the head. Provides a relatively natural look without lightening the whole head*. Can be used alternatively with a full head.


* Extra foils can be applied to the “V” section at the back of the head if you like to tie your hair up and want to maintain a natural look.


  • Classic Full Head – applied all over from the hairline to the nape of the neck and everywhere in between! Can transform you from a brunette to a blonde or provide a more natural look depending on colour choice.

How long will it take?

Timing depends on which service you choose, the effect you want to achieve and also how quickly your hair develops with the bleach/colour. Timings are approximately as follows:

  • T Section – 1 to 1 ½ hours in salon
  • Half Head – 1 ½ to 2 hours in salon
  • Full Head 2 to 3 hours in salon

Additional Considerations/Recommendations

Even with the best products on the market, bleach will dry out the hair. You should consider using Smartbond to protect the bonds of the hair and get the best from your new colour.

There are also many very good nourishing and protecting products that you can use. Ask your stylist for details on what is best for you.
