Areas We Cover





What is The Money Piece Highlighting Trend?

Why do we love the “money piece” technique so much? The technique for the money piece trend is similar to a balayage hair colour, where the colour is hand painted onto your hair throughout your locks in a bespoke manner. With the money piece trend, hair colour is hand painted in such a manner to frame your face beautifully and brightening your complexion.

Whilst the money piece is a highlighting technique, it doesn’t always have to be blonde – this trend can be used with bright fashion colours! To create this stunning effect, your Martin and Phelps colour expert will use a hair colour which is two to three shades lighter than the rest of your hair, creating the right amount of contrast. 

Your Martin and Phelps hair colour expert will know just where to place your face-framing highlights so that you leave our salon with a smile so big it will look like you’ve just won the lottery, and you will have – the hair lottery!

Money Piece Highlights For Brunettes

Sweeten things up by adding a caramel money piece to your brunette locks this autumn! The combination of rich brunette and honeyed tones is simply stunning, and the lightness of your caramel money piece will create the perfect amount of contrast against your brunette locks.

Money Piece Highlights for Blondes

For those of you lucky enough to have a natural beautiful blonde hair colour, ask your Martin and Phelps colour expert to enrich your blonde with a platinum money piece! An icy white platinum highlight at the front of your blonde locks will give a beautiful, multi-dimensional finish to your hair colour.

Money Piece Highlights For Redheads

The ’90s have been making a return in fashion and hair styling, with platform trainers and space buns being seen on the catwalks and high streets alike. Remember this iconic moment in ’90s pop culture history? These money piece highlights offer a great low maintenance hair colour option that still allows you to be bold with your look, without the commitment of a full head hair colour.

Care For Your Money (Piece) at Martin and Phelps Salon in Cheltenham

To ensure that your money piece style continues to look beautiful in between salon visits, you should follow our simple at home tips : 

  • Colour treated hair requires specialist hair care. Your Martin and Phelps stylist can recommend a professional quality hair care system that’s formulated for your newly coloured strands.
  • Keep it cool. Since the money piece highlight involves lightening your strands it’s likely that, unless you’re prepared, your hair may become brassy in tone. We can recommend purple toned haircare to keep brassiness at bay in between salon visits.
  • Skip the heat. Keep your hair looking smooth and healthy by taking a break from your heated styling tools more often.
