6 hair highlight tips and 24 trendiest ideas cover

Hair highlights can do wonders to bring out your hair’s most attractive shades, as well as complement your eyes and complexion, if done correctly. Adding highlights to your stands will create hair texture and add dimension to your look.

Maintenance

For highlights that will look good when growing out, use a darker hair color at your roots that blends to a lighter tone at the tips of your hair. Good highlights last for three months. It’s always a bad idea to over-highlight you hair — less is more!

When you don’t have the time or the cash for highlights, ask for a color-refreshing rinse. It takes just five minutes and is a fraction of the cost of highlighting. So you can look great on-the-go without breaking the bank.

If you’re adding highlights to your hair for a big event, such as your wedding hairstyle, get the highlights done at least 2 weeks beforehand to allow time for your hair and the highlight color to settle.

Colors

Brunettes don’t need a full head of highlights. Have your colorist paint lighter pieces into your hair before rinsing out your color. This creates depth and dimension that enhances the natural tone of your hair. To give your hair a brighter look, opt for highlights in a blonde or gold tone. For a dark, deeper effect, try lowlights in plum, auburn or chestnut. For blondes, using lowlights will help you get a darker look without drastically changing all of your hair.

Highlights can be used to cover up or break up the look of grey hair and is especially effective on blonde hair colors.

For natural, sun-kissed looking highlights use natural hair colors in thin strands around your face or sparingly through any bangs.
