How Much Do Highlights Cost?

Highlights are one of the many coloring techniques used in hair salons today.  When it comes to coloring hair, there are many options and combinations available.  Instead of dying all of the hair, highlights simply dye portions of it.  Once you get highlights, you will have to continue to get it done on a regular basis to keep the color; otherwise, your roots will grow out and reveal your natural hair color.
