Hair Coloring Techniques

At HICI Go, students have the chance to learn about the latest techniques and advancements for many hair coloring approaches, including:

Full Hair Color

General hair coloring involves the process of completely dyeing a client’s hair. For proper hair coloring, you must be familiar with techniques and products like hair dye, bleach, foiling, and others.

Hair coloring works by creating a chemical reaction with hair molecules, ammonia, and peroxide. This is what produces a lightening or darkening effect in the hair. To achieve a bright, popping hair color, you may need to bleach the client’s hair first. From there, you can apply the correct hair dye color, adding dimension and other elements to make it look natural and stunning.

Color Melting

Color melting is a method used to apply natural and unnatural hair colors to deliver a smooth finish. It involves using different shades of the same color to create a natural, blended effect. For example, you may use a darker shade on the roots and top portion of the hair or lighter shades towards the ends of the hair to provide dimension and a natural-looking hairstyle.

Color melting provides a seamless transition between colors that works to enhance a look. Those who participate in one of our hairdressing courses can learn what goes into the color melting process, picking up techniques that can make you stand out as a hairstylist.


Highlighting hair is when a hairstylist applies lighter colors to small sections of hair around the whole head. It’s applied from the roots to the ends of the hair. Hair highlights can be a great way to add an extra pop of color to natural hair. It creates a lightening effect on the hair and can be as subtle or as bright as the client desires. Learning the right highlighting techniques can improve your current skill set and help you grow as a hairstylist.


Balayage is a trendy hair coloring technique that lightens the ends of the hair. It emphasizes the natural look of a highlight by applying bleach and hair dye to smaller sections of the hair. To begin, hairstylists tease the hair before applying bleach. This is so the bleached pieces blend nicely with the original hair color to create a subtle look.

The balayage technique keeps the roots darker and gradually lightens toward the ends of the hair. This can deliver a stunning hairstyle that looks modern, trendy, and updated.

Color Matching

Color matching involves evaluating your client’s current hair color, skin tone, and other factors to determine the best hair color fit for extensions, coloring, and other applications. For proper color matching, hairstylists must understand the different hair dye colors and how they can react and blend with a client’s natural hair color. Throughout their courses, students can learn about colors, blending, and other techniques that help improve their color-matching skills.
