Image and personality of a person depends on their attitude and attire, but we neglect to understand the importance that our hair has. Certain hairstyle and haircut give your whole look its own panache; one such style that has become a trend is using highlights.
There are various types of highlights but like fashion only some become trend setters. Here I give you 5 most trendy highlights for hair
- Ribboned highlights
This kind of highlights is especially suitable for wavy hair. In this kind of highlights, the colour of the highlight is usually a light colour that brings out the whole look with its ribbon like appearance. It is highly recommended that you go the pastel route for your streaks, for example brunettes should use honey blond highlights. Actresses like Jessica Alba, Olivia Wilde and Allison Williams are sporting this trend.
- Frosted highlights
In this kind of highlight, almost each strand of hair is individual bleached to get the multi coloured effect. Therefore it is highly recommended that you use a colour that is lighter than your current hair colour but not too much, otherwise the whole look will be tacky. This kind of highlights is best be short haircut thereby giving you a playful yet sexy look. Leading ladies like Jennifer Lawrence, Charlize Theron and Carey Mulligan are sporting this chick trend.
Balayage or hair painting is a unique king of highlighting technique where the hair is almost designed like a painting so that the hair gives a beautiful look when under the sun. This kind of highlight is best for summer, so that the sun can hit your hair and give you natural yet stunning effect. It is recommended for shoulder length hair and the streaks are best bleached in lighter tone of your hair colour. Actress Jessica Biel, victoria’s secrets model lily Aldridge and many other beauties are rocking this trend.
These highlights bring a unique colour of childhood back to your hair as the technique for this highlight bleaches fine streaks that frame your face thereby giving a look of innocence. It is recommended for women with round face and lengthy hair as the whole effect of the highlights will be enhanced. These highlights can be of a much lighter colour than your natural colour, but don’t take the risk of using too bright colours. Sporting this trend are beauties like Miranda Kerr, Chrissy Tiegen and Klarie Kloss.
- Ombré highlights
Ombré highlights are my personal favourite; the name of this highlight is derived from the French word – shadding. This highlight is sublet yet beautiful blend of colours. The roots remain dark whereas the colour of the hair starts becoming light as it moves downwards, almost like a beach hair. Ombré highlights are perfect for a number of haircuts but I personally suggest you to curl your hair with these highlights for getting the full effect. Beauties like Drew Barrymore, Lauren Conrad and Khloé Kardashian are rocking this trend.
Reinvent and add a spice to your look by trying one of these trendy highlights.
