Of particular note this year are some of the beautiful highlighted hair colors seen on the runway. Angelina Jolie’s hair had beautiful honey colored highlights wound into her dark tresses. Reese Witherspoon’s trademark blonde was touched up with gold around her face.
Also popular in Hollywood this season are block color highlights, in which a section of hair is colored differently than the rest of the head of hair. This is generally achieved through highlights and lowlights in combination. Many are experimenting with bright colors in this context such as pinks, purples and blues. Hombre color has been popular for the past few seasons, and continues to allow women to have hair that appears to have been dipped into another color. From light to dark and dark to light in varying shades and color, this look was made popular by Christina Aguilera, and continues to evolve. At the New York Fashion week this year the ombre look took color to new heights. Simone Kitchens’ models had hair that appeared to be tie dyed it was so radiantly bright.
Increasingly, the everyday American woman feels more confident wearing brighter hair colors and sporting more radical looks. Current hair trends allow American women the opportunity to experiment with fun and beautiful hair colors they never imagined possible.
Highlights do not have to be a radical color. They are most commonly used to naturally accent natural hair colors and hide gray. Professional stylists recommend highlights to clients looking to freshen up their look and brighten their hair color without committing to all over color. A variation of color, particularly lighter and warmer colors, framing the face brightens up features and accentuates the face. These same warm colors are particularly complimentary for those looking to appear younger.
For those looking to try more radical colors in small doses, highlighting allows experimentation with other colors, whether bright or more natural without committing to a full head of hair color.
Likewise, highlights are an excellent choice for those wanting to brighten their look, but who are not willing to go to the salon every four to five weeks for upkeep. Those with highlights can wait up to 8 weeks for touch ups and maintenance as the natural hair grows back in with the highlights. Highlighted hair also makes transitioning to a new color or look very easy without damage to the hair.
