There is a joke claiming that everything is simple with women: straight hair has to be weaved, curly – relaxed, short – extended, long – cut. We may go on and add that blondes want to be brunettes and dark-hair girls see themselves blondes in their dreams. With highlights any change of hair hue is getting softer. It can be very subtle and absolutely in tune with your natural hair color. Or you can become a “bronde”, for instance, which is a blend of a brunette and blonde, why not? Besides, there are tons of interesting solutions with full/partial highlights and lowlights. Here is a gallery of 40 most eye-catching ones.
Highlights and Lowlights
Highlights are a spice of your dark brown or light brown hairstyles. Even the simplest haircut looks exquisite with the right chosen and done highlights. They will bring out your eye color and skin tone, add body to your hair and look stunning whether you wear your hair lose or style it in sophisticated dos.
Basically highlights are at least 2 tones lighter than your natural color. When they are done all through the head, these are full highlights. Partial highlights are done more locally, from the crown towards the bangs, for instance, or mainly for side tresses. Sometimes lowlights are added for the 3-tone dyeing. Lowlights are normally at least 2 tones darker than your natural hair. To make highlights or/and lowlights on brown hair colorists use either traditional foil techniques for precise streaking or the balayage method when dyes are applied with special paddles.
The latest hair trends suggest natural looks and subtle transitions of hair colors and shades, which make your basic color more radiant, accentuate your eyes and skin tone. Pale skin and soft brown hair, for example, go well with highlights just 1 shade lighter. However, you may also opt for more contrasting bolder solutions.
