There are baby blonde highlights running through the hair from just below the roots and these cleverly add depth to the hair to make it appear thicker and fuller. Those textured layers at the end also help to add more oomph, especially when they have been tousled and flicked out to look like this. It’s a great look and one that takes just a few minutes with your hair dryer and a round brush in the morning.
