They say what goes around comes around. It’s true for everything, from history, repeating itself all the way to hair trends like chunky highlights. It’s been a while since we’ve seen these perfectly sectioned large highlights. Don’t get us wrong: The chunky highlights of today don’t have that stripey, dated, super high-contrast look of decades past. We’re into those subtle streaks that give your color a new lease on life.
The Chunky Highlights Revival
Read on to see if chunky highlights are for you:
1. Alt-Inspired Chunky Highlights
This alt-inspired style offers a high-contrast blend of bleach blonde and dark roots. Ask your stylist to focus your highlights towards the front of your hairline for a flexible style. You can wear your hair pulled back to show off the chunky highlights or wear your strands down for just a subtle hint of color.
2. Silvery Hues
Use this trend as an excuse to have some fun with your hair color. This soft and shimmery hair color is a beautiful blend of shimmery hues. Use a duo like Nexxus Blonde Assure Purple Shampoo and Conditioner to keep your color vibrant long after you leave the salon.
3. Natural Highlights
Not all chunky highlights were created to majorly stand out! Opt for a natural-looking style that looks like you never even stepped foot into a salon. It takes an expert colorist to create such a realistic look so make sure to do your research before you take the plunge.
4. Shades of Blue
Play with different shades of blue and use a chunky highlights method to create a look that will really stand out. These shades of blue perfectly complement the base shade of brown hair.
If you’re ready to make a real statement, consider a high-contrast look like this one. The bleach-blonde chunky highlights will really pop against darker roots! Fight against frizz by running Dove Defrizz & Define Frizz Control Leave-In Cream through your strands.
