Curly Hair Specialist
At the Michael Angelo Salon & Spa we take our curly hair guests SERIOUSLY. We are even more serious about curly hair education! Often times, hairstylists are not trained in how to deal with curly hair. They are taught one method of cutting – straight hair cutting. They may even think that curly hair needs to be thinned out or straightened before cutting. If you have curly hair, you need a curly hair specialist – like our stylists! We understand the special attention that curly hair requires.
Styles of Highlights
What is Balayage?
This technique allows for very intentional placement of highlights and lowlights that create depth, dimension and ultimately, natural and believable hair color! Balayage creates soft and natural gradation of lightness along the hair strand—usually deeper towards the scalp and lighter towards the ends. This natural-looking highlighting technique is not just for blondes, but is used on all shades of hair to add soft, sun kissed dimension. Due to the highly customized, natural-looking placement, balayage also allows for a softer grow out, which will extend your color maintenance schedule a bit. All of our stylists are highly trained in the balayage technique as it has become the most popular color service in our Wellington salon.
What is the difference between highlights and balayage?
highlights do. Highlights are traditionally applied using a method called “foiling.” Foil highlights involve sectioning the hair and the foils are usually placed close to the scalp, lightening the hair from the roots to the ends for an all-over highlighted look. These sections of hair can be made thicker or thinner depending on how clearly defined you’d like them to be, but traditional foils tend to be more uniform in appearance.
What is Foilyage?
balayage and the use of foils for added color intensity. With foilyage, the color is still painted
on by hand, but each section is then wrapped in foils to magnify the color payoff. The end
effect is still natural, with the color becoming more vibrant as it moves from roots to ends.
What are lowlights?
sections of hair and coloring them in a shade or two darker (not lighter like highlights) than your base color. Lowlights aim to add depth and dimension to your hair look. They also work
wonders at making your hair look thicker and generally more voluminous.
What are Babylights?
are very delicate, blonde highlights created using a very fine hair color technique. You can
choose different shades to compliment your skin tone. The result is subtle but beautiful.
What are Teasylights?
the mid-shaft to the ends of your hair. This is a very similar effect as ombré but not all of the
hair is lightened on the ends, just some.
Which one is for you?
schedule to look like. If you like a uniform distribution of light and dark through your hair, you might want to stick with traditional foil highlights. If you have a shorter hairstyle or get a root color (single process) touchup and you’re coming into the salon every 4-6 weeks already, foil highlights are easy to maintain.
One major benefit of balayage is that the effect grows out incredibly naturally, making it low-maintenance. As the roots are normally left your natural hair color, you can push it to 2-4 months between appointments. Balayage is also a great option if you’re looking to transition away from the upkeep of a traditional foil and allow your roots to grow in naturally without giving up on those lighter ends.
every guest to leave completely satisfied!
Lowlights work wonders when it comes to giving the illusion that hair is thicker and more
voluminous, so it can look particularly good on fine hair. In addition, they can work well if you are looking to add depth and dimension to naturally light hair without adding more highlights and risking subsequent damage.
Babylights are a perfect way to try something new and introduce some color to your hair but don’t want anything drastic.
Teasylights are best for brunettes who want a cool balayage appearance or anyone who
wants maximum lightening in a single appointment. It’s a great way to break up all of the
darker, richer fall colors and add a little splash of South Florida summer into your hair.

We understand that curly hair has a bounce factor. When a curl is pulled down and stretched out, it is usually several inches longer than at it’s relaxed state. This is why we cut curly hair dry, not wet. We cut curly hair in its natural formation and without tension or elevation. We DON’T use combs on our curlies either. Combing and brushing are not necessary and can stretch and damage fragile curls. We can teach you how to detangle, with the right product, when your hair is wet. We also know the desire to kill the frizz while maintaining the volume and bounce.
Not only do we specialize in cutting curly hair but we also specialize in coloring curly hair. You always have to pay attention to where we are placing highlights so when your hair is curly your highlights don't look bunched and un-natural. We also make sure your color looks amazing if you straighten your hair as well.
Our curly hair specialists can work with you; teaching and guiding you in the proper care, maintenance,and styling of your natural curl! Stop fighting your curls! Call us for a free consultation with one of ourcurly hair specialists today! 561-966-1661.
