Highlights and Lowlights – what’s the difference?
So you’ve heard that foil highlights can produce some striking but natural looking results when it comes to hair colour, but what is the difference between the two? Hi-lighting brightens the hair whilst low-lighting darkens and deepens a natural colour. For highlights think tones of blonde and gold whilst lowlights reds, plums and browns. Using foils placed in varying widths and volumes allows your expert hair colour stylist to separate strands of hair and use more than one hair colour. Highlighting or lowlighting hair in this way gives the illusion of more depth, texture and volume to the hair. Your Sparkles hairdresser will advise on how many foils are needed for your desired perfect hair colour result. We break foil highlights into the following three categories:
T-Section foils – up to 8 foils are used on the hair. Usually in one concentrated area, the fringe for example. Partial (from) £55.00
Half head foils – also known as partial foils or partial highlights. Half Head (from) £65.00
Full head foils – if you wear your hair in up-dos or tie in back regularly (possibly during your working day) then full head hi-lites or low-lites could be the best option for you. Full Head (from) £85.00

bhave™ rescue therapy
Q What is Replicine™ Functional Keratin®?
A The only commercially available fully functional keratin protein that has been extracted using a patented technology from pure New Zealand wool. Replicine™ Functional Keratin® respects the complexity of natural proteins and works to replicate them in form, sequence and function. It acts just like the natural keratin in hair and gives the same protection and strength. Combining three technologies – oxidized keratins, intact keratin proteins and keratin peptides has created a unique keratin technology that captures the essential aspects of keratin proteins required for genuine benefit.
Q What are the advantages of Replicine™ Functional Keratin®?
A Most labs treat all keratins as the same, but the scientists behind the Replicine™ Functional Keratin® know that this is not the case. Some keratins are responsible for strength and some act as glue that holds the hair together. By respecting the different forms of keratin, Replicine™ Functional Keratin® technology isolates and uses the proteins exactly how they were intended. Replicine™ Functional Keratin® is the only keratin protein that can mimic and regenerate with hairs own natural keratin. Replicine™ Functional Keratin® is almost identical to the keratin present in skin and hair, and so can naturally bind and interact with skin and hair and impart a range of benefits.
Q Can damaged hair be repaired by keratin?
A Yes, in many cases with repeated treatments, Replicine™ Functional Keratin® rebuilds the keratin protein in damaged hair. This is possible as the keratin structure, essential for binding, has been maintained.
Q Can keratins get into hair or do they just coat the surface?
A If hair is in perfect condition then Replicine™ Functional Keratin® will deposit on the surface and form a sacrificial shield, protecting the hair from damage. However, if hair is damaged then the hair structure is opened up and Replicine™ Functional Keratins penetrate into the fibre and bind to the internal structure, rebuilding the damaged proteins to restore strength and condition to the fibre. Experts have studied the penetration of Replicine™ Functional Keratin® into the hair structure using microscopy to prove that it penetrates and stays bound inside the hair.
Q Is the keratin in hair care products the same as keratin in my hair?
A Keratin from wool is almost exactly the same as the keratin in your hair. The Replicine™ technology takes care to maintain the keratin structure when isolating it from wool, so it is almost exactly the same as the keratin in your hair. This makes it ideal for repairing the damaged keratin in hair.

bhave™ smoothe keratin therapy
Q Is bhave smoothe keratin therapy right for me?
A bhave smoothe keratin therapy makes hair easy to manage, so anyone who struggles with frizz or has curly and difficult to manage hair is a good candidate.
Q What makes bhave different to other products on the market?
A bhave is a true keratin taming system that does NOT break down, change or build internal bonds in the hair. It cannot be washed out immediately as the keratin requires time to set into the hair.
bhave is formulated with an innovative amino cell rebuild technology that has been specially formulated to penetrate the hair providing health, protection and long-term conditioning. bhave contains argan oil, collagen and silk amino acids to smooth away frizz while adding luminous shine.
Q What kind of results will I get from the bhave smoothe keratin therapy?
A A reduction in frizz, hair will be more manageable and easy to style. You will still be able to wear your hair curly or wavy (depending on your hair type) and enjoy the freedom to blow-dry your hair into any style you want in a fraction of the time.
Q Can I still receive the bhave smoothe keratin therapy if I have highlights and/or colour?
A Yes you can. However, we do advise for best results to have your hair coloured after 2 normal washes. If you do colour your hair before the treatment, the colour may lift to varying degrees, requiring colour to be re-applied.
Q Does the bhave smoothe keratin therapy work on virgin hair?
A Yes. On virgin hair, reults will improve with each application. You may have to repeat the treatment after 4 weeks, but each application will last longer.
Q Is the bhave smoothe keratin therapy going to make my hair straight?
A All hair types differ. The treatment is designed to make the hair easier and quicker to manage. Some people may be able to ‘wash & go’ whereas others will have to add some heat to their hair in order to get a straighter result.
You may want to ask your hairdresser to perform a strand test before proceeding with the treatment to get a realistic idea of what your result will be.
Q How long does the bhave smoothe keratin therapy last?
A The bhave smoothe keratin therapy lasts up to 5 months depending on the hair type and maintenance. As mentioned, some virgin hair may require an application after 4 weeks.
Q Is the bhave smoothe keratin therapy permanent?
A No, the hair will revert back to its natural state after 2-5 months.
Q Can I apply the bhave smoothe keratin therapy directly on top of other relaxers?
A Yes you can. We recommend that you wait a month after relaxing your hair before having the bhave smoothe keratin therapy.
Q Can I cut my hair before or after the treatment?
A We recommend that you cut your hair after the bhave therapy as it will fall differently and appear longer.
Q Can I use styling products?
A Yes, you can use styling products after the first shampoo/wash.
