1. Contrasting roots

If you have naturally dark hair, but want to experiment with a lighter hue, then why not opt for this contrasting roots hairstyle, as see on Olivia Wilde? Ask your stylist for a drastic ombre to get a striking contrast or, for a less dramatic finish, go for a graduated balayage.

2. Flicked ends

If you’re not totally keen on poker-straight hair or loose waves, perhaps you can go for this flicked-out hairstyle. It’ll help soften the effect of your platinum hue, and provide a youthful and feminine touch to any look!

You can create this look in two ways; using a barrel brush to curl the ends in an outwards and inwards direction when blow-drying, or simple use straighteners to curve the ends of your hair. It honestly couldn’t be more simple!
