How AirTouch Differs From Traditional Highlighting


Ah, the ever-changing world of hair styling. AirTouch, isn’t it just a rollercoaster? We’ve gone from crimping to flat irons and mullets to curtain bangs. Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the latest battle in the hair arena: Traditional highlighting vs. the new kid on the block—AirTouch. Buckle up, people, because you’re in for a wild ride.

Picture this: you walk into your favorite salon, armed with references to the latest celeb hair trends, ready to elevate your style. You think you know what you want, but hold your horses! Your hairstylist hits you with the latest gossip – AirTouch Highlighting. Gasp!

“But wait,” you say, “I just came for my traditional highlights!” Well, guess what, my friend? You’ve encountered the classic epic conflict of our generation: “To AirTouch or not to AirTouch? That is the question.” Fear not, dear readers, for I, your trusty guide, am here to hold your hand through this tangled web of hair confusion.

And the saga begins…



The 411 on Traditional Highlighting

Gather ’round, fashionistas. It’s high time we discussed the age-old battle between traditional highlighting and the shiny new kid on the block, AirTouch. Don’t worry; we’ll break it down with some witty banter and moments of hair-tossing brilliance.

Ah, the classic traditional highlighting. You know, the clingy ex that still shows up occasionally – the one you can’t seem to break up with? Yeah, them. It’s not all bad. There’s a reason some people swear by it like it’s their very lifeline. Traditional highlighting involves meticulously weaving and painting sections of hair with lightening agents to create a desirable sun-kissed look. The pros? It’s precise, and you can go bolder or more natural, depending on your whim.

But wait, there’s more! Or less, in this case.

The cons are that it can take ages (think Titanic, but with fewer icebergs) to complete, especially if you’re going for an intricate pattern. Over-processing can lead to damage that’ll make you say, “Oh, no, she didn’t!” (Spoiler alert: she did). So, while it’s excellent for the commitment phases, you might want to take note of the potential airpocalypse.


So, what about the impact on your hair? If you’re playing “spot the damage,” traditional highlighting might be the winner (in a not-so-good way). It can be harsher on your locks between the foil and the bleach than a lion’s mane in a wind tunnel. But do not fear; we’re all about solutions here.

And there you have it: the good, the bad, and the hair-raising truth of traditional highlighting. Remember, this isn’t precisely a funeral for foil but an open-minded exploration of alternatives. Don’t worry; we’ve got a lot more to cover in our upcoming sections, so buckle up because we’re diving headfirst into the world of AirTouch. Stay tuned, folks. Your hair’s worth the read.

Unveiling the Art of AirTouch Highlighting

Whoosh! Did you hear that? That’s the sound of AirTouch highlighting, whizzing past traditional techniques, and making a grand entrance into the hair styling world. Oh, you’re still confused? No worries, let’s unveil this mystery for you.

AirTouch is your hair’s stylish fairy godmother. What does it do? It transforms dull locks into a luscious sun-kissed mane that will make others question whether your parents are ​secret millionaire celebrities. Magic. The best part? No magic wands or rainbow-dyed unicorns are involved. An air compressor conveniently pushes your shorter inner strands aside, only highlighting the outer layers. Therefore, it offers a more natural, seamless, and less damaging blend of highlights.

Speaking of damage, let’s address the elephant in the room.

Or should we say strand? Your mom, your hairstylist, and maybe even your pet have warned you about the horrors of hair damage from highlighting. But believe me, or better, believe AirTouch when it says, “Stress not, beautiful lady. I’ve got you covered.” Unlike its predecessor, AirTouch is far more gentle on your hair, akin to a breezy summer afternoon as compared to a hair-tormenting hurricane.

It is moving on to the real charmer – its advantages. and  It has more benefits than a dog that has fleas (and that’s a lot). It does wonders for women who’ve been burnt before (figuratively) by trying to hop onto the highlighting bandwagon. Its natural and subtle color blend appeals to everyone – from your chic city fashionista to your shy country girl.

Trust me, once you try AirTouch, you’ll be as hooked as a teenager watching “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” for the first time. So, next time you head to the salon, shout out to your millennial instincts and dare to venture into the world of popping hair, highlighted by the AirTouch way. It’s like saying goodbye to your beloved but old-school VHS tapes and embracing the cool, new-age Netflix era. Yes, fellow style explorer, it’s time for an upgrade.

Humor and sarcasm aside, remember the key is to mix things up, keep it stylish, and make people wonder, “Just how does she do it?” So, ready to turn some heads, aren’t you? Let your hair do the talking!

AirTouch vs Traditional Highlighting: The Great Conundrum

Ah, the age-old question (well, it’s not that old, but just go with it): To AirTouch or to stick with traditional highlighting? This is possibly as big as the “platypus or beaver” debate. Let’s dive into some friendly hair-highlighting fisticuffs and weigh our options.

Round 1: Battle of the Titans – An in-depth comparison. In one corner, we have traditional highlighting, the reliable grandparent of the hair world, adamant on sticking to its roots (pun intended). In the other corner, we have AirTouch, the flashy newcomer with a point to prove. While traditional highlighting relies on good old foil or balayage, AirTouch bulldozes its way through the hair strands with a revolutionary blow-dryer approach. No foil, no fuss – well, a little fuss, but hey, #NewTechProblems.


Round 2: Pick your warrior – Which method should you choose? It’s like choosing between your favorite grandma’s classic apple pie and that new “fancy schmancy” dessert bar downtown. But the decision should be entirely based on your hair, preferences, and willingness to experiment. If you’re into a more natural look and can handle growing out your highlights like it’s your job, traditional highlighting may be your style soulmate. But if you’re all about trying something new, looking like a million bucks, and want less damage on your precious locks (you sexy, responsible trendsetter, you), hop onto the AirTouch train. Choo choo!

So whether you embrace the wisdom of traditional highlighting or plunge into the thrilling adventure of AirTouch, remember: it’s your hair, your decision, and your opportunity to look fabulous. And seriously, who says you can’t switch sides now and then? After all, variety is the spice of life, and hair is no exception! Wink, wink.

Celebrity Endorsements

When it comes to lighting up the red carpet or just idling through a lazy Sunday brunch, the celebs are on it like white on rice! Or should we say ‘like highlights on hair’? (chuckles). Grab popcorn because it’s ‘showtime’ for our A-listers who’ve decided to play the field with AirTouch highlights.

Remember when He Kardashian (not her, HIM! You know, the one with the dashing jawline and highlights to die for? Oh well, never mind) walked onto that event with the sun seemingly captured in her hair strands? That was not your average sky phenomenon, kiddies! That was the shimmer of the AirTouch technique doing its magic!

And let’s not skip the evergreen beauty, Jessica Alba, who seems to be aging backward, one AirTouch jump at a time. Her luscious locks, highlighted with this new-age technique, set new beauty standards. Can we call her “Goldilocks”? Well, we just did!

The touted Queen of Pop, Madonna, known to rewrite the norms (remember the conical bra?), is also an avid promoter of AirTouch. Her golden tresses seem lit under a perpetual spotlight, with the AirTouch technique stylishly flowing with the rhythm!

So, what’s the verdict from our celebs? Do they think it’s fabulous or just a fad? With the increasing list of who’s endorsing the AirTouch, we’ll leave you to put a finger on it. Or better yet, put a hairstrand through it!

Right, that was fun! Now, moving on, don’t lounge in your stylist’s chair before you hear our next bit on the Dos and Don’ts post-hair highlighting. Hair today, gone tomorrow? Not on our watch!

Tips to Maintain Your Highlighted Hair

Have you ever wondered how the Kardashians keep their hair looking vibrant, lush, and right-off-the-runway worthy despite all the highlighting? Newsflash: They have a secret army of hair stylists. Oh, you don’t? No worries, our little rendezvous here has got you covered!

Talk about Keeping Up with the Kardashians, peeps! Their shiny tapestry of highlights constantly shifting from classic to AirTouch has captivated us. However, that glory comes with its hair-care manifesto!

Post highlighting, remember, your hair is like a diva – demanding, hungry for attention, but oh-so-lovely! Not only should you feed it with regular deep-conditioning treatments (Yes, the Kardashians do it, too!), but you should also opt for sulfate-free shampoos. Sulfates are like that lousy date, promising to improve everything while flaking and fading your vibrant highlights. *eye roll*

Attempting a head-first dive into the pool? Slap on some leave-in conditioner first. Chlorine is that unwanted guest at your hair party. And yes, keep the usage of your hot styling tools at a minimum. You wouldn’t walk into an oven, would you? Or would you like chocolate chip cookies? Um, never mind!

So remember, great hair doesn’t happen by chance; it happens with the proper care. And, occasionally, by stepping out of the Kardashians’ shadow and creating your style statement! Now, turn some heads, will you?


So, are you ready to elevate your style and join the legion of hair-highlighting trendsetters, or do you prefer to take the safe, well-trodden path of traditional techniques? Before you book that salon appointment, remember that life is too short to have dull hair. So, gather your courage, channel your inner Beyoncé, and strut into that salon with confidence—it’s time to let your hair do the talking.
